Best way to use a VPN +browser/ing?
Posted by: Jerry®
Date: November 09, 2019 05:08PM
Im just starting to wake up and smell the coffee about the Internet + browsers + my data. I currently subscribe to Private Internet Access (PIA) and just use their default settings - BUT many times I have the hardest time trying to figure out if there's an issue with the settings on my PIA connection, which browser I'm using, etc. Like I did a complete uninstall of Chrome just now and then went to download it through Safari but it wouldn’t download until I turned off my VPN.

So, couple of questions:
1) is there a "best way to use your VPN?"
if so
2) Which browser is the best at privacy and handling a vpn?

Thanks
Jerry

not sure how big your tinfoil hat is, but have you thought about just using something like the brave browser in private tor mode

Mine hat is super small, they can have my data, meh.

Dssenter and Bravo seem to be similar in interface. Is one better than the other?

If it were me I would run the VPN from inside a virtual machine. Use a dedicated browser in that virtual machine with accounts that do not match your normal accounts.

I get what you’re saying but i don't really need THAT level of anonymity (yet)

I just turn my VPN on when I’m concerned and leave it off the rest of the time. “Right” or not, I don’t know.

I use PIA as well and have been happy with it.
Firefox to browse.
I get no more than 4 or 500 @#$%& pills ads a day.

I use PIA but it really cuts into my marginal throughput.
