VPN / Proxy over Tor

Using the Tor browser to connect to everyday websites can be a pain in the ass because exit node IP addresses are often recognized as such and access to the site denied.

But what about using a Proxy / VPN server and connecting to it over Tor? Using the IP address of a VPS instead of the exit relay IP could mask that I'm using Tor, no? This would involve buying a VPS (pick a random one from kycnot.me and pay with monero) and setting it up as a Proxy / VPN. I'm not really sure what would be needed for local configuration but I'd imagine it would involve setting Tor as your proxy. But what steps would be required to make the Tor traffic go through the VPN afterwards?

Is anybody using a similar setup? Is this even a valid thing to do or am I overlooking something?

EDIT:
openvpn has the cli argument --socks-proxy which takes a host and optionally a port. In the .ovpn configuration file for the vpn you would specify the connection to first go through the tor service running on your local machine (--socks-proxy localhost 9050).

Deposit before time expires: 2024- 06-08 01:00:21

So I got this notification while trying to put funds on an onion. I just now bought crypto through a broker which will be directly send to that address. But I paid with debit card so I t can take up to 3 days max. Does that mean I will then lose all my funds if it doesn’t arrive before that timeframe????

Can we check data breaches

I'm working in a company, and I'm a part of the cyber security team.

My role is to see if there is any kind of data that should be not there on the dark web, so are there any kind of ways to check it or websites where I can find and make sure there's no data about my company that can harm us.

Is the browsing speed supposed to vary DRASTICALLY?

Usually when I start browsing, links load in 3 to 5 minutes. Then for a period of maybe 10 minutes, all the links load in around 30 seconds. After that, every link times out. I close tor, open it, it usually repeats. These are the exact same links on the same websites, sometimes loading in 30 seconds, then later that same hour, failing to load after 5 minutes.

Is it usually like that, or could it be my internet or devices? I only use mobile data because I don't have wifi, and speeds are capped at 20Mbps, but it doesn't usually feel slow.

need direct answers for these questions in one place instead of many if possible

  1. Is it better to run tor on a mac or windows?

  2. Should you use bridges and or tails or both even if you are in a place that doesn’t restrict it?

  3. is kleopatra the same as a pgp tool or overall what is the best way to encrypt and decrypt messages?

  4. What is the difference between tails and bridges?

  5. is bridges good why or why not?

  6. if I have bridges or tails should i run both or just one or the other?

These are all questions i’ve looked up but if I got direct feedback for each one it would be way more clear to me what the answer is especially having done a bit of research but directly asking the question and directly getting the answer is more straight forward and break through for me, so if anyone can help it means a lot and appreciate it.

At what point should I file a dispute

Had a vendor I've ordered from pretty much every month for a year. They never really answer messages, but always come within 2-4 days.

Been 10 days since I placed an order, but they disappeared from top vendors, reviews dont come on their page anymore (when before they came every day), and their "last online" thing disappeared. I checked other markets, and they've logged on to them in the last day

It kind of seems like the market might think they could potentially exit scam/be exit scamming if these things have dissappeared on the site, but idk. I dont want to be paranoid and make an unnecessary hassle for this vendor if something is happening out of their control
