It's Linux; everything is doable if one has the will. I don't know if this is what you want but take a look at Freedom Box. Follow their links to their software.

Also, the Tor Browseris worth a look. Tor has improved over the years and is reasonably responsive now. Even if you don't intend to use Tor examine it to see how they configure Firefox for security.

BTW, many browsers, including the one I'm using, will run in user space without being installed to root.

VPN uses any one of a number of protocols to connect. Windows and macOS use older and less secure protocols.
Linux can use any but I prefer to use Openvpn which requires installing the openvpn package.

Code: Select all
apt install openvpn


For more information you can search for vpn protocol

You can use a network manager gui to connect using a vpn, but you need to set up.
To connect using Openvpn, you will need a configuration file with a key or a configuration file and a key.

If you want to try a free VPN connection, please have a look at protonvpn.com https://protonvpn.com

If in XP it was already installed.... you just still have to do it.... Whats the difference (except from Windows and Linux...) ;)

Do not forget to choose which system will be your VPN server...
