Yo, you. Yes, you. Have you read Motherboard’s new guide to cybersecurity? Well. You should. And you should implement its recommendations. Because it’s pretty good primer and, critically, it starts in the right place (i.e. by describing threat modelling 101). Which is, yanno. Rare. For these things.

One minor quibble, which I’ve talked about before: Tor is kinda useless, at least if the nation-state actor you’re trying to evade has any kind of cyber capability (e.g. all Western nations, plus countries like China). And if you’re not trying to evade nation-state actors, VPNs are probably easier although, disclaimer, I only turn mine on as-needed (e.g. if I’m connecting to untrusted wifi, or intentionally want to obscure my IP).
