For example, I downloaded Tor network and using it for illegal activities. Can my govt track me? Can US govt track me? I know it encrypts something but if I remember correct, FBI was able to find some Tor users before.

Note: illegal activities was for example. I’m not going to do anything illegal. I’m just planning to serve my instance with a onion address.

    Its there now, but you never know what they are really running on their servers. In end to end networks, you should never trust the network, only the clients.

    I think you need to take time and model out your threats, the EFF has tools to help you do this, then choose the tools that match best.

      You’re right. Thats why I like Matrix more than Signal now.

      Also I’m not looking for a security method to escape from a specific target. It’s all curiosity about general security.

        matrix leaks metadata to the servers much worse then signal, just FYI. Hating how a team runs is different then then risk profile of the product.

        Don’t like emotions cloud your decision making

          I’m not hating. I just like keeping my half encrypted data on my own server instead of fully encrypted on someone else’s server.
