when I'm using something that supposed to be secured, I'm still taking extra precautions.
At the very least, every single connection that I'm making I scramble my MAC address.
And btw, the other day there was a news about someone got apprehended despite hiding behind a TOR - you just never know when they will come at you, and when they want to get you, they can.
If you're doing things that make them specifically target you then they'll probably get you anyway (and that's as it should be).
This new is to stop mass spying/recording of every conversation (which is what they're doing now).
