Noob question:
I was thinking about grabbing this for torrenting but then I saw that I can use a proxy. I found a site that has a list of proxies. If I go into uTorrent and put this proxy in, am I completely safe from being flagged?

Two Mostly Somewhat anonymous Payment Options


** ALWAYS PAY CASH FOR EITHER OPTION / DO NOT USE SAVINGS CARDS IF BUYING @ A GROCERY STORE/CVS/WALGREEN's or Other / DO NOT ASK A BUSINESS HOW LONG THEY SAVE THEIR SECURITY FOOTAGE OR U'LL FLAG U'RSELF **


1st - BitCoins -
A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating an Anonymous Wallet for Covert Practices [reddit.com]

Key quote/point of tutorial below (U'll still be on camera where ever u end up doing the exchange) Read & Read & Read the tutorial until u know what u are doing...
Quote :
Another great idea is to use the localbitcoins website; meet with a seller locally; pay cash and GTFO.
U can also take a chance & use a local BitCoin business found on Craigslist... Just make sure they have a physical business location... Like a cellphone store or something else.... U will be on camera at said location but it should lower the chance of getting ripped-off... And after 30-90 days or even less... Said business would probably overwrite u'r mug off their security system... Always change u'r BitCoin Wallets address for each transaction to avoid linkage...

PROS

- As anonymous as u can theoretical get
- Once you learn how to do it, U can replicate it for next time
- Should cost about 3%-7% above MT.Gox average price which should be less then $4.95 per transaction on smaller amounts of $75...

CONS

- U still have to meet some one in public or at their business.
- U'll still be on camera at Star-bucks or at a business
- U are trusting a stranger
- It cost money to wash u'r BitCoins
- Value of BitCoins can fluctuate
- Never use u'r homes Wifi to purchase or clean BitCoins. U'll have to drive to a Library or Starbucks...


2nd - Credit Card Gift Cards -
You can also pay with a CC Gift Card... They are available from different companies from different retailers... Get one that is not re-loadable but that you can add an exact amount at purchase time... Most run about $4.95 per GC... That way u pay the amount needed + $4.95... Call ahead to make sure the GC u are looking for is available where u plan to purchase... Choose a location where u don't normally go to... Wear a hat/cap & shades... Make sure u grab the right GC & that u add the right amount... Once activated/purchaed u probably can't change the balance... Go to an out of place retailer & not to a mall... Gas station stores are probably u'r best bet... Most of this info is part of different Blog posts old & more recent that when combine can give u the best option in u'r area & case... I've included links to said Blog posts... I included a hint to the best CC Gift Card... Said CC Gift Card will either not require any online registration or the only info they will request is a random ZipCode u will need to remember... Always use Tor & TorEmail when dealing with registration of u'r choice of CC Gift Card's... If possible use a public Wifi when doing said registration... Always use bogus info when registering said CC GC.... Also always write down the info u use for said registrations... Never use u'r CC GC at more then one service or purchase... But if u do... Only pay for the same service... NEVER use the CC GC on different services or u'll create linkage... CC GC do come with FEE's for u'r balance... Usually said fees don't start until 7 months or longer... So depending on how much $$ u add to u'r card & how long u plan to hold said CC GC... Be aware of how much extra it will cost u.... U will find the best option for u by reading all the links below...

PROS

- Theoretical a lot more anonymous then u'r Paypal, Visa, MasterCard... etc...
- Much easier to purchase then BitCoins...
- Easy to purchase if you do u'r homework...
- U can "cook" your card by waiting 30-90 days before using it to make sure the video footage of u buying has been written over...
- If u choose the right GC... It will probably be ready to go within 24 hours of purchase or the only info u will need to register online will be a random ZipCode... Don't forget what random Zipcode used...
- $5 per GC for possible anonymity


CONS

- Theoretical not as anonymous as BitCoins...
- Say Cheese... U'r on camera for as long as the retail location keeps their security video
- The bigger retailer u go to the longer u will be on camera purchasing the GC...
- GC's can incrue fees after a certain amount of months... 7 months, 12 months... Read the back of the GC before buying it...
- U might have to register the GC with bogus info online(Most non-refillable cards can be registered with bogus info... Write down what u use).... Use Tor & TorEmail for anything related to the GC & if possible don't do it at home...
- Re-using the GC negates any anonymity, So get as close to the amount u need... In this case $32...
- Using a GC for something that needs actually shipping to any address negates any anonymity too...
- $5 per GC for possible anonymity...

READ, READ, & READ & then READ some more... I think both of this payment options are worth the hassle to add a layer or two of anonymity when purchasing a VPN or other online service...

Thanks to all the Slick Dealer's that help us combine this info....

Many people use the service on a dedicated computer that doesn't do web browsing or email.
I suppose for all your "illegal" downloading it will come in handy then.

But they are registered in the USA so this ‘we don’t log or share things’ talk is hogwash. Any VPN provider in the USA has an obligation to work with the authorities (the Patriot Act and/or NSA PRISM) so this is as anonymous as HMA (non-existent).
WOW...glad I waited. EEK!nod

Well... At the very least it should help with the ISP's 6 Warning system since u'll be encrypting u'r traffic...

As for the NSA... What makes folks think that VPN's base outside the USA aren't being tapped at the server end pre-encryption just like the USA based one's probably are too.... The Patriot Act & FISA "suppose" to have protections for US residents... But said foreign VPN's can be water-boarded all day long... At worst, the country where they are base from gets to complain about it... Well.. Only if they find out they are being tapped...

I hope this deal goes live soon.. Might have to start a petition...Cool

If I'm paying a company to be private that's what I want privacy, if they claim to be 100% private and their are not, then I rather use TOR and save the money.

I agree with u... But I don't think he NSA will show u'r ISP u'r unencrypted data... At least not yet.. Give them a year or two... So it does hide u'r traffic from u'r ISP...

If VPN is no secure I double Tor is any more secure... And even less with the exit node security hole Tor has...
