I alluded to it in my introductory post.  I'm using a trusted VPN service - but I'm actually not sure what level of protection this affords me.  I also use Brave browser, and I know I have the option to go 'private with Tor'.  Is this sufficient?  I actually can't even tell if I'm browsing securely now - my VPN is connected.

If you're not in L.A. then your VPN is working great. But over all with your Welcome Posts and all I doubt you have attracted much attention. Unless you plan on posting Top Secret shit or terrorist intentions I think you're sufficient. Facebook and your cell phone probably have all that anyone would need, but if you don't have either then I completely understand why you have the foil hat on. Ya can never be to careful, right?

Thanks.  I'm not worried about the attention I've attracted.  At present.

 

Thanks - I am indeed NOT in L.A. (or AM I?).  So that's good to know (or IS it??).

Well if you are in So Cal period then I would question the validity of your VPN. I literally spent two seconds to base that on.
