Can I change the wall paper of Workstation and/or Gateway to something personal, without compromising anonymity?
If I login to an account, such as email provider, internet forums, reddit, that I’ve logged in before without using TOR, will this then compromise future internet browsing if I wish to maintain being anonymous? If I do so, can I “reset a circuit” to then put me back into being anonymous?
Should I not use Whonix/TOR to login to public internet forums and reddit? I figure I could create a new account with these services through anonymous means, but I’d end up using these internet communities/forums in a similar way. Because of how I like to behave and use these forums, I’m not sure if I’ll actually be anonymous and gain anything from using Whonix/TOR.
Could it be beneficial to use these services where I don’t have good anonymity, inside a separate Workstation?
If I’m using TOR browser within Whonix, and then a different device in my household, connects to the same router, to do their own browsing or torrenting on a non-Linux, non-TOR connection, can this device compromise the anonymity of the Whonix user when the internet disconnects? From what I read of the Wiki, this seems to be the case. For me personally, it is unavoidable to not have non-TOR connections to the router, and drop outs happen regularly. Is there much benefit to using Whonix and TOR, if my circumstances are like so?
Is it best to shut down Whonix by going start-logout-shutdown, or can someone turn it off using Virtual Box without issue?
