Im getting a bit fed up with all the spying and internet monitoring.

I dont have anything to hide really but I really wont to make those monitoring lives more complicated and miserable


What I plan to set up is Tor over a VPN using tails OS. Im not really a IT expert though.

How would some of you secure your personal PC's?

Of course this is my home laptop.
Unfortunately if I did this to my business computer id have MI5 knocking at my door due to what I deal with, so need to be open in that area

After gigabytes of it they will just give up on you

I actually try to flare up my emails signing off with ....pressure cookers and backpacks...along with quotes from spies like us...I want them to waste time on my emails..and say "damn it..its that asshole again!"

I don't secure anything. And I make sure to use NSA buzzwords in my daily internet life. Things like Dirty Bomb. Or I'll randomly search "Buy Cobalt-60 online". Then I'll really confuse them by looking at pictures of kittens with funny captions for a few hours. And while I'm doing that randomly ask on yahoo answers where I can buy chloroform in bulk.

Whoever is monitoring me probably thinks I'm "Buffalo Bill" style crazy. Maybe that search for "How to cure and tan human skin", or my endless hours of watching guilty puppy videos.

Turn them off?

Who else thinks that by now they aren't capable of monitoring/censoring all web traffic regardless of encryption capability?

You might not stop them. But you can make there lives more miserable or so difficult unless you are a high profile terrorist or the German chancellor they really just wont bother.

I'm thinking that there has to be a way to legally make money by making their lives miserable, while having fun at the same time, without having to be a lawyer that is.

Here is one idea, Type all emails and blog replies in English and then use Google translate to turn them into Russian, Chinese, Arabic or Farsi and send them off.

Где находится библиотека? Кошка в штанах.

I thought they are really looking for truth teller terrorists or whistle blowers, though? To interdict "sensitive' information and delete it before it gets out?

I'd say they have been pretty successful of late. No more Assanges or Snowden startups…

On badgering them… no thanks I don't think I'll ring their door bell and run, thank you very much .

There is far too much internet traffic for the NSA or anyone else to monitor it by person. They don't have the manpower or person power to do it. Apparently internet traffic is filtered through super computers looking for so called key phrases. Which to me seems very stupid as anyone could easily use a code like "my new engine will be ready next week" and the moron NSA or CIA would have no idea WTF.

Yeah I would think code words are taught as a 101 lesson in the terrorist hand book

Maybe in my next Amazon order I'll buy an NBC suit, two cases of monster energy drink, a taser, some catnip, a Geiger counter, a few cattle brands, a bucket of lard, etc.

Or buy in the same order: Steel ball bearings, a pressure cooker, a bag of fertilizer, a pay as you go cell phone, a ski mask, and a backpack. Then all I have to do is wait for them to kick down my door. HEY, easy way to get a new door.

The filters the NSA uses are much more complex than simple key word detectors. They're designed to process petaflops of data per second and can seek out patterns, detect differences in writing style etc.

If the little camera on your Xbox one can not only use facial recognition to identify everyone in the room but also detect their temperature and facial expression to evaluate mood? Well that's a $400.00 toy. What the NSA is playing with is generations beyond that pale.

For some reason this makes me think of teasing a big nasty dog just outside the reach of his frayed old rope. In other words what are you thinking???

hmmm from what you say you deal with pretty sensitive/government related information...and you want US to tell you how to make the NSA's life more difficult?
PEOPLE IT'S A TRAP!


how do i secure my personal pc? i damn near go bareback online, i mean let's face it, you have no way of knowing that any software or combination of software really works, especially in terms of government spying.
yeah you will get rid of the pesky trojan in that torrent you downloaded, but some software that the NSA or whatever would say "Dammit, he has THAT software, we are blind!" to that possibility i respectfully say "lol"
the only way to make your pc secure is a good chainsaw.

I use Ubuntu - standard Ubuntu with standard Firefox. The only time I ever seek to cover my tracks is when I am investigating things for ATS threads and go for a dip in the Darknet. For that TOR and a VPN with a cloned MAC address.

Essentially speaking, the amount of traffic they are monitoring undermines them in the long run. The more people who encrypt and tunnel, the easier their job gets... for now. That is not to say that if they want you they will not single you out and, at that point, nothing you do is going to get you off of their radar short of going totally low tech.

Of course, we discuss these matters at our PC's and then we pick up our smartphones and wander out into the world without a care - with a pocket filled with exploitable cameras, microphones, GPS, and most of our web based data to boot.

I think your right.

I have ordered things that would get real terrorists arrested in seconds. All for legal reasons.

Likely im not investigated as Im down there with 8 year old girls and old ladies with dementia as likes to commit act of violence.
