    v3 v4  
    1 The mode number is chosen randomly. Only needed as a reference when talking about it later.
    2 
    3 = mode(1): user anonymous; any recipient =
    4  * example: post anonymously a message in a message board/mailing list/comment field
    5  * example: whistleblower and such
    6  * You are anonymous.
    7  * Your real IP stays hidden.
    8  * Your location remains secret.
    9 
    10 = mode(2): user knows recipient; both use Tor =
    11  * example: Both, sender and recipient know each other and both use Tor.
    12  * They can communicate with each other without that any third party can find out, that they are communicating with each other.
    13  * You are NOT anonymous.
    14  * Your real IP stays hidden.
    15  * Your location remains secret.
    16 
    17 = mode(3): user with no anonymity; any recipient =
    18  * example: normal browsing without Tor.
    19  * You are NOT anonymous.
    20  * Your real IP gets revealed.
    21  * Your location gets revealed.
    22 
    23 = mode(4): user with no anonymity using Tor; any recipient =
    24  * example: Login with your real name into any services, such as webmail.
    25  * You are NOT anonymous.
    26  * Your real IP stays hidden.
    27  * Your location remains secret.
    28 
    29 = combinations =
    30 It's not wise to combine mode(1) and mode(2). For example, if you have an im/mail/etc. account and use that one for mode(1), you are advised not to use the same account for mode(2).
    31 
    32 '''It's also not wise to mix two modes inside the same Tor session''', as they could share the same exit node (identity correlation).
    33 
    34 Also other combinations are potentially dangerous.
