4 Tools to Protect Your Information From The Google Deep State

More security tips >>>/truthexpo/4 (https://archive.fo/lVGpv)



With information becoming more connected each and every day, many US citizens have raised concerns over privacy.

Privacy activists have attacked phone companies in particular for giving away personal user information to the NSA with zero permission.

The worst offender by far, however, isn’t Verizon or AT&T, but rather an internet search engine conglomerate known as Alphabet Inc.

Founded in 2015, the American multinational conglomerate Alphabet Inc. was created as a parent company of Google and several former Google subsidiaries. Alphabet Inc. made a whopping $90.27 billion in 2016, and has over $160 billion in total assets.

If you aren’t scared yet, you should be. This multinational conglomerate owns 12 separate companies, each of which has an incredible stranglehold in their areas of expertise.

From Calico, a longevity research company, to Deep Mind, their AI research program, it’s astonishing they haven’t been broken up by the government for violating anti-trust laws.

Worst of all, however, is Google – which has a monopoly on the internet ad market, on the internet video market, and on the internet search engine market. The IT folk at Google are experts at integrating anything and everything, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Google has been watching you since Day 1.

Every video you’ve watched on YouTube, every Google ad you’ve clicked, every search you’ve made, and every text you’ve sent from an Android phone, Google has recorded somewhere in the bowels of their underground multi-petabyte databases.

Despite Google’s massive violations of your privacy, the government likely won’t stop them anytime soon, as they’re an integral component of the Deep State.

This means it’s on us to protect our own information, and while it’s certainly an extra burden to bear, it beats having your every move online tracked and recorded.



1. DuckDuckGo (Search Engine)

The first tool is DuckDuckGo, an internet search engine that emphasizes users’ privacy and avoids collecting any and all information. They show every user the exact same information, unlike Google, which tailors its results based on the user.

DuckDuckGo is 100% funded by donations, and is known for its philanthropic efforts. In just the past seven months, they’ve raised $300,000 in donations for various internet freedom organizations, such as Freedom of the Press Foundation, World Privacy Forum, and Open Whisper Systems.

The company isn’t just a search engine, however – it’s a meta-search engine. This means that it generates search results from several search engines, such as Bing, Yahoo!, Yandex, and Yummly.

Using DuckDuckGo will ensure that your information isn’t collected or your results custom-tailored, which turned out to be a big problem when Google was caught censoring anti-Hillary search results.

2. Proton Mail (Email Service)

This Swiss-based email system is one of the most secure forms of online communication to date. Boasting a state of the art, end-to-end encryption system, not only will your emails be protected from any potential hackers, they’ll also be inaccessible to the company itself.

In addition to this, since Proton Mail is incorporated in Switzerland, and it operates almost exclusively out of the country, all of your data is protected by Swiss privacy laws, which are known for being some of the best on planet earth.

On top of this, no personal information is required to create an account, unlike Gmail which requires your phone number, name, and date of birth – Proton Mail doesn’t even track your IP address, making it lightyears ahead of other email services.

Best of all, it’s funded entirely by 10,000 generous individuals who partook in the company’s record-breaking crowdfunding campaign, meaning that it comes at no charge to you.




3. IP Vanish (VPN)

Available for Windows, Mac, and even the Android phones, this VPN service is a favorite among deep web dealers and red-pilled Germans alike. These are commonly used in countries such as France, China, and Sweden, where internet access to conservative news sites is severely limited.

With a VPN, or Virtual Private Network, your internet requests are bounced off of a secure server that cloaks your identity, and transmits information to you anonymously. This ensures that even the government will have a hard time tracking your information.

IP Vanish has over 40,000 IPs on 850+ servers in 60+ countries around the globe, making it the most advanced and secure VPN network available to the public, and while it does cost a monthly fee of $7, the peace of mind you receive knowing that the Deep State isn’t tracking your information will be priceless.

4. Tor (Onion Routing Software)

Initially created in the 1990s as a project by the United States Naval Research Laboratory, this downloadable internet search engine has been available to the public for over a decade. It’s used primarily by deep web drug traffickers, but has also been heavily used by journalists and whistleblowers due to its high level of security and anonymity.

Tor works by encrypting your search data and IP, and then bouncing it through a network of relays run by volunteers around the world. This is known as onion routing, which employs multi-layered encryption (hence the name), to ensure secrecy between not only relays, but also between users.

The software is freely available to anyone with internet access, but be warned – it’s best if you use a VPN along with Tor for added security. And while Tor isn’t a search engine, you can go to DuckDuckGo.com while using Tor and a VPN, for complete anonymity of location and searches.

Tor is not bad, but you can't expect it to be 100% safe or not compromised in some way. Look up the leaked NSA document "Tor Stinks", they can track Tor using persistent "super-cookies" imbedded within the Mozilla Firefox platform within Tor. You can get rid of "super-cookies" but they will come back every time you load up the browser again.

Free VPN? Risky yes. Private VPN? Costs you but usually cheap and more reliable.

Duckduckgo is fine. You still haven't told me what's wrong with duckduckgo. >>558412



(samefag) This is a copypasta but a good one, just found it and a definite keeper when it comes debating the safety of using Tor:

The only document which points to evidence of Tor being compromised is a 5 or 6 year old NSA leak called "Tor Stinks" and I remember reviewing it. One of the ways they can compromise Tor users is through tracking evercookies within the Mozilla Firefox platform. Unlike regular cookies, Evercookies will re-appear when deleted and remain very well hidden. Evercookies typically come with unique ID hashes and the NSA can use those to identify certain users (even if they don't know exactly who they are, they can still keep track of the user activity from the evercookie IDs).

One example of an evercookie is "SiteSecurityServiceState.txt"

If you go into the directory of Mozilla Firefox and take a look at that it will be loaded with obscure sites and then unique hashes (identifications) used to track you. However, you can delete this, but it will come back the next time you load your browser. So deleting evercookies is like playing whack-a-mole.


Who do you think on here doesn't know about all these already? Actual safety is a lot more obscure. This is an FBI agent recommending compromised software.



Well you'd be surprised, I've seen people shilling Winblows 10 on these boards, I kid you not. I've made my own opsec thread @ >>>/opsec/4 and have suggested anons look into some of the tips that were compiled. You'd also be surprised that a lot of anons didn't know about all of that stuff either.

Not everyone is a tech-savvy genius here. In fact it took me several years to learn about a lot of the security problems using the internet.

Proton mail


>(((developed by CERN and MIT scientists)))



What service would you recommend then?



What botnet was shilled? I don't see one on this thread that was shilled.


Could you please tell me what's wrong with duckduckgo? I've asked this three times already. No answer yet, just insults.


Is there something else you would recommend other than Tor or a VPN? Security tips are beneficial for everyone here.


So I hear none of these tips are good. OK then. Can we have some proof here? Could you critics provide some solutions… something useful instead of a bunch of scoffing? It makes me very suspicious when anons criticize ideas, but never provide reasons or better solutions.


This is only comment so far that helps anons re-consider a tip.



Researcher here. DDG is decent but there are times when Jewgle gives much better search results. When/if DDG is truly up to snuff I will never use Jewgle again.

>a Swedish email service


>recommends a specific VPN popular in Germany, with a suspiciously cheap price tag


>no recommendations for plugins like NoScript or Request Policy

This is fucking garbage OP.



Look at the top of the OP, I actually linked to more security tips. The article may be shit, and very few tips were given, true. But that's why I linked to >>>/truthexpo/4 which discloses a whole lot more info about this.

I use NoScript myself, but the default settings suck, for NoScript to work as intended you need to deny all global scripts and re-configure the whitelist to suit your browsing habits. THEN Noscript is good for security.

Also use something that obfuscates your OS and browser metadata like Blender or R.A.S. and using Tin Foil won't hurt either (something to fortify the chrome configurations from collecting unnecessary data about your browser and activities). [Note: don't set to Full Tin-foil, it will disable DOM storage and your captcha won't appear anymore.] ;)

Go use it



DDG results will never be as good as Google because Google builds a detailed profile on every user and caters their results based on what they think you want to see, which is usually accurate. DuckDuckGo doesn't do that, so it'll never be quite as accurate.

Don't trade security, privacy, and dignity for convenience.



I do, and it's not that bad. I get decent results. You get better results with Google, but you're giving up your privacy and cucking out that way.


There are many alternative search engines besides duckduckgo, such as startpage.com or ixquick.com or privatelee.com

There really should be a search engine that utilizes Google only they'll use their own IP to bring up Google's results for you - instead of having to directly connect to Google. That way you could get the same results, only through a different IP.



Also searx.me



pretty sure startpage and ixquick both do what you are describing



>linking to another board that isn't /tech/

Fuck off m8.



/tech/ would likely delete it, or it would slide into oblivion at some point. the reason I made my own board and put the tips there was because it is officially being preserved for long-term future reference.

1. Reasons to not use duckduckgo. Which ssl certificate is real?

2. Protonmail has yet to be proven as a backdoored service. I don't fully trust them though because (((cern and MIT))).

3. Here is a list of backdoored/very compliant to spy on you VPN's

4. Tor as a protocol is semi-ok for anonymity. You just need to untrust american and european exit nodes. If your hiding from (((them))) then you need to untrust all transfer nodes in those locations. HAHA GL. Torbrowser, and all derivatives that are binary packages are backdoored or artificially have their security weakened. For example tails randomizes MAC adressess to make you stand out. TORbrowser did not hide webrtc or http return headers and etc.

Watchya shilling duckduckgo for rabbi/intl/? Archive link https://archive.fo/YAXjv . It is MITM'd by the SSL certificate provider using two different certificates for the website. You shilling for it implies the service itself is ok but the certificate authority is fucked. idk



These things should give away cuckcuckgo's nefarious nature, there's been

Searx.me has gotten me good unfiltered results.



It makes me laugh maniacally whenever anyone suggests DDG these days…



For child pornography?




Thanks for the input.



>it's not that bad

prove it



It's kind of clusterfucky, but yeah, you can get pdfs and other shit google doesn't fuck with.


Sadly that might be the truth.



*But I don't know what he uses it for.

>Sadly that might be the truth.

Could be, who know what sickos roam 8chan. However, there are legit reasons for avoiding Google. Google sells all your private data they can get to other corporations to make profits for themselves. They have no regard for your right to privacy and that is why most people would avoid Google.
