    is it possible to be truly anonymouse or just more difficult to trace ? when VPN is bought with card or bitcoin the trail must lead back to the owner and steps in between just make it more difficult or time consuming. if bitcoin is used then that must be bought with a card or other traceable means or the owner of the bitcoin account would need some way to keep track of the funds

    If you unplug your computer form the internet, yes; otherwise, as stated above, no. Only your "anonymouse" can be truly anonymous.;)

    You can make advertisers attempts to direct their advertisement at you a little harder. Otherwise even anonymized/encrypted internet traffic can be tracked back t you by anyone with the resources to do so. Of course, you'd need to be someone they really wanted to find because it wouldn't be cheap.

    You can never be sure a VPN service is trustworthy unfortunately.. Even if they are trustworthy I'm sure they're prime targets for nation state hackers around the world. Same with TOR. They're good at giving you anonymity on a forum like this, or to bypass ISP or regional restrictions... but If you're an international weapons smuggler being tracked by the government it's a different matter.

    You could potentially remain anonymous by connecting to the net via free or hacked WiFi, Ideally from a car hidden away from any CCTV cameras.. You also have the option of using a large WiFi antenna to connect over longer distances. Using that you'd want to connect through a few compromised hosts/servers on the internet which you have complete control over. And you'd also want to do this some distance from your home..

    Not very practical :p

    Or you can destroy your phones, go live in a cave and never touch the net again. Then there is a possibility you get to be anonymous.

    You can buy bitcoins from ATMs in some countrys.
    Otherwise you could buy bitcoins at a swap meet with cash.
