With the absurd amount of shilling that this gets from (((influencers))) I can't help to believe that NordVPN is some kind of honeypot and/or botnet. There is no way that they can be shilling to so many influencers and have so many organic "how do I use this service" posts on the net.

I am surprised cianigger is not posting regular threads on this subject stressing people to use obviously untrustworthy software.

Several strategies:

1. Browse so much different shit they have no idea what you're up to. Hope your ISP doesn't kiss and tell on you to (((rights holders))) about your torrenting. (Or use a seed box.)

2. Download your stuff from JewTube with youtube-dl.

3. Torrent normalfag shit no one cares about except (((rights holders))) through VPN, use Tor, GNUnet, I2p for everything else.

4. Use VPN from a place far outside your jurisdiction where you never plan on traveling to that it doesn't matter what they know. I think this is the advise Stallman has given, e.g. if you live under an American Occupied Government and you are not going to travel to China, then use a Chinese VPN, and if you live in China and never plan on traveling to America use an American VPN. Under NO circumstance use a VPN in the country as your residence.

5. Use Tor for everything. See >>1071855 and https://blog.torproject.org/bittorrent-over-tor-isnt-good-idea why that may not be good advice.

6. Wait for Christian Grothoff to release GNUnet 1.0.0. (The just updated their site so it doesn't look like shit anymore https://gnunet.org/en/ )

7. i2p for everything.

8. Only use the internet for paying bills, filing taxes, anything you're legally required to do. Could be expected or really suspicious depending on how old you are.

I meant that NordVPN has nothing that implies that they are a honeypot, or any track record of backstabbing their users.

You should NOT trust any third party server(which nordvpn is, just like any other vpn server is) to run information that you seem critical(who you connect to, for example).

The only case against nordvpn is that they didn't have an episode like ExpressVPN's raid where to try to find tracks on an actual political murder the local government of whatever the shit country just raided their servers out of nowhere and still weren't able to find shit.

My dad uses it and I used his subsription for a while, it's godawful. The client is designed like a Fisher-Price toy, it's all big colorful buttons and is essentially retardproof, but you have absolutely no meaningful settings (proxy, portforwarding, killswitches, etc.). The actual service is fucking awful too, they have hundreds of servers across the world, none of them even have halfway decent speeds, I'm talking maybe 500kb/s if you're lucky. It also drops out at random and makes no effort to reconnect, it'll say you're still connected but nothing fucking loads. Torrenting off of it is a joke because of this, you can't leave anything running without having it cut out. Switched to a different VPN service after doing some research (not saying it here because it's fucking fantastic and I don't want anyone ruining it for me) and never looked back. My dad was actually pissed when I bought my own, because he think Nord is the holy grail of security and privacy. This was also a man that thought Android was less secure than Apple (as in they can just get infected one day and all your credit card info is now on le ebil deepweb), even though all security boils down to "don't be a retard".

Been using them for almost 1 year and it's due for renewal, so I'll give my experience and thoughts on them thus far.

Pros:

- Good and easy customer service over chat

- Okish speeds

- Ok price

- Super easy to use

Cons:

- Experienced stability issues, connection just randomly drops at times, especially on mobile

- A boat load of servers (at least in the locations I use) just randomly disappear, when you contact support they say that they're under maintenance, but tthey have no idea when they're coming back. Last time it took a month.

- Blocked by many sites that one might want to use, such as amazon etc.

I'm leaning towards going with another provider next year. While it's been good with Nord VPN I can't say I'm super satisfied.

Best VPN when it comes to ease of use and stability I've ever used was F-secure freedome. The problem with them is that they're a huge corporation and do say that they're willing to work with authorities.

I'm thinking of going double up. Take f-secure freedome for normie use and then another for non-normie use.

Because of the contact details

Nah, it's because the Tor developers shit on torrents, maybe because they're afraid of exit nodes getting DCMA'd in addition to all the pedo related raids they probably have to go through.

But the fact is torrents work as well as anything else really. You just need to find http(s) trackers that don't block Tor. And peer discovery is impaired because Tor doesn't allow incoming connections, but in practice it works just fine.

>Mainly look at their website for sentences about keeping logs or something along the lines of "Report activity to authorities if necessary"

Main problem is that while that may technically be true (they don't KEEP the logs) they send a copy to a shell company for data mining and legal ass covering purposes.

While there might be no official record of a VPN giving out your info, that doesn't mean the VPN provider didn't cooperate with an investigation in exchange for no legal pressure and they eventually give up and give out the info after the case goes public, or get sued and have to pay the big bucks to the government. The feds won't give out their sources, because they want people to feel safe while still using compromised products (like a VPN provider). This is what they did with the iPhone case, and every fell hook line and sinker for muh Apple standing up to the FBI, while they could've handed over all the backdoors under the table and nobody would've found out.

>This address is used by shell companies. [2][3][4][5]

>So, now we can be establish that Tefincom is not the real company behind NordVPN.

>When you make a payment to NordVPN, your money apparently goes to a CloudVPN Inc.[6] This is weird, since NordVPN claims to be subject to Panama laws and CloudVPN is based out of the USA. [7][8]

>It gets better, check CloudVPN Inc's public records, and check out their 2017 original report under the history menu. [9] Listed as the president/director is Darius Bereika. [10] Darius Bereika is also the CEO of tesonet. [11]

>You read that correctly, the person who is the president of the company who manages NordVPN payments is the same person who's the CEO of Tesonet. If that doesn't bother you, keep in mind that Tesonet runs a data-harvesting service.

Now, it appears that Darius Bereika is also linked to Protonmail / ProtonVPN, according to this source:

http://vpnscam.com/nordvpn-protonvpn-proton-mail-owned-by-tesonet-ceo-darius-bereika/

...and to HolaVPN (the very HolaVPN which servers were used to attack 8chan 4 years ago) according to this source:

I haven't done more research about it, but with a simple search engine you can find dozens of articles exposing shady, sketchy links between many services pretending to protect your privacy.

Nord speeds are typically slower for me, but torrents with enough seeders can still easily max my bandwidth. I don't use the client because I don't want all web activity going through the VPN. (Bank and work information is obviously me and would just make it more obvious I'm using the VPN. Other accounts I've used with my real IP don't use the VPN either because it's already profiled to my area.) I have a separate browser for anonymous/pseudonymous web stuff with Nord, though I typically use Tor unless I need faster bandwidth or exit nodes are blocked/restricted.

I use it because someone I know recommended it at the beginning of the shilling, and I didn't think much of it. I'll probably go with Mullvad after this expires.

>>1073273

Assuming this isn't bait, you don't do illegal shit on a VPN if your country's feds track that kind of shit.

>>1073745

Only a retard blindly trusts a 3rd party with illegal shit. I'm skeptical of Tor right now seeing how the devs want to fight against "hate speech" more than the drug/child trafficking their software is more frequently used for, but at least most cases of people getting arrested were for fucking up their own opsec, or not following recommended security/anonymity precautions.

Just wrap it in tin foil MULTIPLE times (use gloves and don't drop hair, sweat, mucus, identifying substances or materials or blood into it by mistake, be careful not to overheat the unit) and hide it in your closet or some secret location in public if you're afraid of RF tracking, or even kill switches within the device (see: paranoia), use veracrypt, steghide, or tomb for files, rename tomb files and keys to double hide them, use long passwords, write them down on paper, keep em in your wallet.

NordVPN is a big sponser of TYT (The Young Turks). Cenk is shilling for them constantly on his show. That's pretty much all you need to know about NordVPN. They are far leftists and no friend of white nationalists. right wingers or conservatives. Its a honeypot to catch "nazis"

>>1071855

That doesn't matter because of the sheer number of people using a single node at any one time offers you a level of protection a single use VPN can't.

>>1072432

>you should use just TOR, if you want to be more anonymous.

For shitposting and browsing yes but not really anything else. The power of TOR is that literally 1000s of people are using the same IP at once. There is power in numbers which shields any one individuals identity unlike a single paid VPN which you are the only one using shows everything you're doing and links everything to you. You would be crazy to use one imo ....VPN's are honeypots (like NORDVPN) all of the your data is recorded and directly linked to you.

It is not that NordVpn might be a honeypot or not. It is absurd to insist that you can actually protect your privacy on the Internet from the government. A vpn , at best, can help you access content that is blocked in your country/region , but a vpn, tor or anything for that matter can do nothing to hide your ip address from law enforcement. So dont you think you can actually hide from the fbi or law enforcement with a vpn or anything for that matter.

I've given it some thought. The only thing that would keep people truly anonymous is trading their laptops with people globally, then those traders, trading with local traders in their neck of the woods, essentially scrambling hardware globally, continuously. Keeping units for no more than a month. Until by it's 10th hand, the unit no longer means anything. Users continue using free public wifi, keep taking precautionary measures, Using Tails (or Whonix-Qubes CLI, Log-killer, or whatever you 1337folks are up to now a days) disabling javascript, cookies, physically destroying webcam, wwan, wifi cards, internal microphones, using a non pozzed dongle, disabling history logging, keep browsing on safest modes of operation, block popups, minimize the browser as suggested by Tor/Tails etc. It would make it damn near impossible to track people. Think of a local meetup dedicated to hardware trading, that branches off independently as a PO box trading group.
