Using a VPN with Brave's TOR windows/tabs

The Tor Project recommends against use of VPNs with its browser.

Are there any known ‘issues’ with Brave’s TOR windows/tabs when a VPN is used?


Hello @mk7z

same issue apply to brave tor it even make your anonymity worse as tor is most used by onion browser so using brave that will identify the user agent which is chrome so in other word is increase the finger print

hope that help and have a nice day :slight_smile:

Thanks @justsomeone1, does it do anything other than identify the browser?
That by itself doesn’t seem to be much of a fingerprint.
Or am I misunderstanding something?
Also, how is this related to using a VPN, which I would have thought would block any fingerprinting?

you welcome @mk7z

i am not sure but i do not think so

any thing that can identify you will be added to your identity for example using chrome in region that most user use it will hide you cause you become on of many using plugin that used by so much people will also hide you

so consider that following

  1. people using chrome are 1000
  2. people use tor are 2000
  3. people using chrome with tor are 100 see now you are 1 of 100 person

now add other stuff like plugin/extensions your region based on your ip (ofcourse ip does not apply for tor )

the above is about using tor in general even without vpn

but for tor in general despite brave or tor browser
check this

hope that help and have a nice day :slight_smile:
