@velartrill what's wrong with using tor browser on your phone, assuming you understand the benefits and tradeoffs of tor and how to use it safely?
@velartrill so long as we're establishing credentials, as someone who both cares deeply about privacy and understands encryption and other security-related topics, and has also personally been in situations where they were very necessary, this seems like fearmongering to me. Like I said to @lachs0r, other ways of accessing Tor are no free lunch either. Grok your tech before you stake your life on it, this is true of all OS/software/hardware combinations
other ways of accessing Tor are no free lunch either.
The Tor project sure seems to sell it that way, though.
@lachs0r except the big warning when you install it that tells you using tor alone doesn't make you safe, then leads you to a page describing its limitations and how to use it safely
@sir So first you make people go install your app, then you tell them it’s basically not doing what was advertised?
@lachs0r it seems like we're fishing for excuses to hate on tor now, which is really dumb.
@sir I’m not hating on Tor. The issue is that their ad is painting a wrong picture of what Tor can and cannot do for Android users—for no good reason.
@lachs0r what is tor if not the highest degree of privacy and censorship resistance*
