I was wondering about setting up the security level in Tor browser settings. If it is even necessary in my case. I found out that Safest breaks most websites so I am not able to use that.
Taking a look at Safest, it says that it 1. disables Java on non HTTPS sites, 2. disables some fonts and math symbols, and 3. audio and media and WebGL are click to play.
As I have HTTPS only mode enabled in all windows, the first point seems not to be necessary, right?
Now, I am having a persistent Tor browser identity because I keep using the same accounts, have a browser extension installed and so on. Meaning, I stand out. And that is okay as long as my real identity is not revealed. I think it is called pseudo anonymity.
So, does point 2 and 3 matter at all for me if it is obvious anyway that it is the same person who controls certain accounts?
In my eyes, the only thing that matters is not to reveal my real identity and I do not have to worry about those two points as they only matter for people who want to have a small fingerprint. In my case though, my fingerprint does not matter at all because I stand out anyway, which does not endanger my anonymity, or pseudo anonymity anyway.
Therefore, it does not matter if my security level is Standard or Safer.
Am I correct here or am I forgetting anything? What are your thoughts?
The only further threat I could imagine is revealing a connection between several VMs when using them. Could it be relevant here?
