As far as I know, most TOR nodes are controlled by state-backed organizations, so I can’t completely trust TOR nodes, but would it be safer if I added a VPN before TOR? I still can’t believe the corporate background of VPN. How should I configure my network for maximum security?
A VPN before Tor does not technically improve your security/anonymity. VPN before Tor can be set up if:
- Tor is banned in your country and you want to connect to Tor directly without bridges
- The fact that your VPN provider knows that you’re using Tor is more preferable than the fact that your ISP knows that you’re using Tor
