I’m reading through the Whonix-Wiki to learn and understand more regarding anonymity. Now I have a question regarding this topic: Use Clearnet and Tor at the Same Time
It is also risky to use clearnet and Tor at the same time because simultaneous, anonymous and non-anonymous server connections might be established.
How is that a problem?
Let’s assume I’m using Tor on Whonix (VM) and additionally I’m connecting to clearnet from my host-system (different browser, different OS).
From my understanding even if I’m connecting to the same site “destination.com” this site should not be able to link the two (anonymous and non-anonymous) connections. The same thing should apply for services like Google Analytics.
But probably I’m wrong and don’t see the issue.
Mixing up browsers or logging in to the same account on the destination site would lead to problems, that’s clear. Also if I’d lose the anonymous and non-anonymous connection at the exact same time, maybe that could lead to a link of those connections.
But besides that, I don’t see the problem.
On ISP-side I’m not yet sure, I’ll have to read more. But for my current understanding, I guess the ISP could be able to see I am connection to “destination.com” with Tor and without.
