Hi everyone…new here but hope to contribute a lot. I’ve heard many opinions on whether or not a VPN is “necessary” when using Tor. My impression is that it doesn’t add much if you use Tor all the time, but if there’s any advantage, what would it be?
One of the disadvantages of a VPN through Tor, as I understand it, is that Tor is “trustless,” whereas you’re putting your trust in a VPN provider. Doesn’t this defeat the purpose of Tor, more or less?
