When my device’s WiFi is turned off and there is no internet connection, I understand that Whonix is designed to route traffic through the Tor network. However, I’m curious about the scenario when the device has no internet connection at all. Will my real IP be leaked to any site under this condition? How does Whonix handle such situations, and are there any potential risks of IP leakage?
Question 2: Using Whonix Safely After WiFi Reconnection
Assuming my device loses internet connection and then reconnects to WiFi, I’m interested in knowing whether Whonix can seamlessly resume its secure operation without any risk of IP leakage. Specifically, can I add a new connection after the WiFi comes back, or should I restart Whonix to ensure a safe and secure connection through Tor?
Connection Re-establishment: When your internet connection is restored, the Tor Browser will attempt to re-establish a connection through the Tor network. During the brief period between the restoration of your internet connection and the reconnection to the Tor network, there could be a potential window for exposure.
whonix manges the tor right ? is my ip leaked to website by tor ?
But even if you stop Tor on Whonix-Gateway, that’s safe.
To really understand this you probably need to built it yourself. Maybe even using physical isolation (two physically separate computers direct connected by LAN cable without a router and without WiFi).
