    Hi everyone,

    I am using privateinternetaccess + dnscrypt. As far as I know I do not have any dns leak now. I'm using firefox and I already installed donotrackme plugin. Is there anything else I can do for to be anonymous?

    For starters:

    Do a Google search on just "ip". Example: https://encrypted.google.com/#q=ip

    If the topmost return shows your own WAN address, you'll need to do more work.

    Let us know.

    It shows my vpn's ip adress I guess. But I'm sure that it's not my ip adress and location is different. Thanks for your help!

    Cheers!

    Yep, I did it. Thanks!

    How do you correct/block this?

    You can't block this per se.

    But, through the use of one or more VPNs, using TAILS (also TOR) or using Tor-Browser-Bundle (also TOR), would be the most popular.
