Not unusual i get confused what the toilets for some days!
Anyway i have been reading using a VPN is good practice nowadays (my neice had to use one in china just to download stuff from uni!)
Anyway if your anonymous why do sites recognise who you are?

Its cookies ofcourse but how can you (other than deleting everyone of them) go onto the web completely anonymously? ,it seems silly buying a vpn service then having your cookies give you away in seconds ,surely on your pc is the isp's cookies so you dont have to keep logging in to browse the web?

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness  it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

Chesters1,

 

The answer is yes but no.

Using the web as 99.9 percent of us do without a trace is going to be nearly impossible.

 

Tracking technologies have become so commonplace and embedded within the modern web browsing experience that some mainstream news websites won’t even load correctly if the user is attempting to block advertisements or avoid cookies

 

But

Do I believe them.  I don't know. I couldn't understand paragraph two.

I have heard about TOR those that browse the dark web appear to favour it
