VPN = data collection scam? VPN = data collection scam? 10/09/2019 (Wed) 22:05:01 ID:b7fc19 No. 983 [Reply] [Last]
Why would you trust a large VPN like Nord or Express to not just sell your info? Their clients info most likely worth more than granny on facebook. Why wouldnt NSA start a VPN service and price it extremely competatively?

>>983 Never get a VPN using your real info. Sure, the VPN service might says it doesn't keep logs. But what they don't tell you is that they don't keep logs on YOUR machine, but I am sure they are logging your activities on their servers. Pro-tip: If you have to give out your real info, you aren't maintain anonymous.
>>1104 Nord sucks. I used once then cancelled my suscription because it kept pointing to US nodes when I specifically told it not to.
>>1073 Tor used to be cool, but then it got glowniggered. Be careful when using Tor as their nodes are monitored by glowies
I use SoftEther and Ultrasurf. I basically stack the 2 VPNs. I know this is probably a retarded method. Any suggestions?
yes, which is why you should use McDonald's wifi or tor

I don't know what the fuck is happening but it's happened to me twice now. On Messenger, two images has been sent from my phone on two seperate occasions and I KNOW damn well I didn't send them. I don't have any screenshots because I deleted them out of panic. What the fuck is going on?
I'm assuming you're using a Samsung Phone?
I'm assuming you're using a Samsung phone; it's a bug with the program itself. There isn't much you can do execpt wait for Samsung to roll out a patch (unless you want to jail break your phone that is) Just go to: Settings -> Apps -> Samsung Message Permissions -> Storage And disable Message's permission to your photos. That will stop it for now, but you will have to turn it back on to send pictures yourself.

Hey /g/

I need help

Newfag, know fuck all about tech, but am trying to build a computer to be completely anonymous online

Want to put Devuan on a rasberrypi 4, but have know idea how.
Can one one of you give me a step by step.

Also if there are any wholes in my opsec, please point them out to me.

Pic related. The anon that inspired this whole half assed attempt.

>>292 If you can hack the pentagon, you can surf anonymously 99% of the time. To make sure you never get caught, you must surf the internet only 20x in your life.
>>194 >building your own computer It pays off to have multiple macs. also, get an un pozzed cpu
>>424 The cheapest, shittiest WiFi chips are very cheap thanks to IoT cancer. You can buy Chigger "smart" bulbs from chink sites for less than $5.
>>194 Go to pawn shops and some computer shops looking for very old cheap cheap hardware. Collect as much of this shit as you can. Next, frankenstein them together into your very own 'botnet', operating on cloud computing principles. For internet access, you'll need to telescope public wifi. Use Qubes OS or some seL4 microkernel OS.

Installed a SSD and 16gb of ram today in my prebuilt gaming rig, first time I've ever worked on my own computers and it makes me feel proud of myself :D I'm gonna swap cases next week and install a RTX 2060 when they arrive in the mail
Nice, but why didn't you just build your own from the ground up? It would of been much cheaper, or was it a pre-built you've had for a while?
>>963 You will probably feel more at home on Reddit.

BTCsub token Anonymous 05/28/2020 (Thu) 17:57:26 No. 954 [Reply] [Last]
Does anyone know about BTCsub token ? is it a scam or a real deal?
4 posts omitted.
(109.38 KB 702x509 postitNOOOOOOW.png)
I personally don't think it's a scam or a pure pyramid scheme. They are implementing WorkLock-controlled referral plan in order to distribute their tokens economically as they want to avoid paying hefty amounts to FANG corporations and enriching them farther. So referral-based WorkLock smart contract is not their primary business model. They are also implementing a proof-of-asset subprotocol to display cryptoassets under management transparently in realtime. So I can't say it's scam as the 3x14 matrix gets terminated irreversibly at 14th level. You can't grow your network of referrals any farther. Plus their total supply of tokens hardcapped. They can't arbitrarily mint new BTCsub tokens either.
Amazing ! I also came across this and was thinking about investing! This really sheds more light! Seems legit to me!
This is certainly a good investment opportunity as well as a means to expand the capital. Just had small initial query indeed, whether only depositing 1 ETH is the only pre-requisite to enter the investment plan to receive more ETH in return as we refer and get more people on the platform or is there more to it?
I have spoken to BTCsub team on their telegram handle. They will be pushing conversion and data oracles contracts next month to their github repo. But they refused to give me a specific date.
>>954 Neither, it's just noise. And your post is spam.

Red-pill me (and I'm sure others) on Quantum computing. Lets not get left behind in a new computing age.
>>707 It’s a completely meme. Not useful for anything outside of some very niche scientific applications.
>>708 yet
It's just multi-state computing, like using a trinary or larger base. Currently our computers work with little pseudo-switches that are either on or off, 0 or 1. Using multi-state switches you can exponentially increase computing power BUT... it just means a faster computer. It's not like it's going to magically turn into some kind of AI singularity due to inherent mathematical limitations, namely the "curse of dimensionality". Also keep in mind our computers, even quantum computers, currently use a flow of electrons... which means they use mono-dimensional energy. It's possible though to use other energy forms, even biochemical energy forms as well as modulated energy forms, like light wavelengths in order to create photonic processors. And then of course, if you want to go full science fiction you could theoretically create a quantum temporal processor using tachyons. Where a calculation could be performed and then the results of the calculation could be sent back in time by a few nanoseconds. So basically the computer would know the results of a calculation before it even performed it. And the further back in time the weirder it would get. For example if information could be sent back in time by a few seconds it would be possible to create a computer that would know what you want before you even knew you wanted it. Essentially an interface-less computer. The interface would be there, but you wouldn't actually need to use it.

Arch, Gentoo, anything not Ubuntu. Really it's mostly user preference, if you're new to Linux I would recommend Arch over Gentoo. But that's about all. "Secure" is vague, securing your system is mostly up to you and not being stupid. Just avoid shit like Windows or Mac OS which have more security holes than a block of Swiss cheese fucked by a pack of starving sex crazed Nambian children.

>>942 This is a good thread. You should consider stickying it. The politics boards are a decentralized OSINT information aggregation attack against the aristocracy. Every board should have a thread like this encouraging people to collect and organize information for expedient consumption instead of trolling about niggers.
>>943 OP here. Thank you. /g/ seems like a reasonable place to keep it. Maybe sticky it there, I agree it is important to share and build on this information in times like these. Really "we" should be working to create private networks for ourselves (not based on larping). The FEDs have moved us pretty high up the list. I still don't have anyone I can trust irl.

how do i post on 4chan wilst using tor? Anonymous 10/18/2019 (Fri) 10:23:54 No. 387 [Reply] [Last]
Hey 16chan, this board seems to have attracted a lot of dark netters like me. I am also a complete fucking noob. I just started using linux and tor. I know not to connect to the same wifi network every time, but i only have two. is that sufficient, if i switch between them every time i refresh my identity or open this place up? Another question: how do i use 4chan without the fucking jannies blocking my IP for not wanting to succumb to their captcha ridden honeypot?

yesterday was my last day on 4chan. I caught a mod trying to shame me with a reply he made using quotations on a previous comment i had made. everything about it just rubbed me the wrong way. he probably thought he could scare me away by showing his power level, but ended up back firing on him. and then they deleted thread. I hate 4chan so much. i want it to die.
