Description

Suggestions for additional software to be added in the new versions of “Tails”

Add 5, 6 or more best VPN services, known for security and privacy. Some say this extra layer of encryption is very beneficial. when software is pre installed. All the users would to do is simple inter their user name and password in one of the VPN services; user may sign up for 1 or more of these services and use them randomly on diferent days.

Being closely associated with “Tail”, perhaps these VPN services may offer discounts to the users and even payment/donations to your team’s efforts. But please don’t get cought up/snared in the commercialization ($$) the VPN services may tempt you with.

But please, privacy and security first, even internally of these VPN companies

Thanks for your consideration, Jack

Yeah, I think this is a terrible idea. The second problem is that VPNs concentrate traffic in one place, so whichever ones they might pick become great centralized targets for attack and surveillance.

But the first problem is that filing tails suggestions on this bugtracker is not the right place to do it. Tails has its own mechanism for submitting tickets, bugs, and ideas. You should submit this idea that way if you still think it's a good idea.

Yay, arma is against VPNs, the Tor Project is safe!
