If I use a TOR browser without a VPN, will I still have a hidden IP address? Will I be anonymous anyway?

    Yes. Tor re-routes all pathways by default.

    Tor as it's currently available does not easily play well with a VPN.  Do some research on the subject and I'm sure you'll get an education.  Using Tor on a VPN can make both Tor and the VPN unsecure.

    Your IP address on the other end will be hidden but it won't be hidden to your IP provider and especially it's a red flag for law enforcement! When you go to drug Town at 2 in the morning with your dark tinted windows the police know that you're there to buy drugs. When you're using a browser the dodges and ducks your IP address all over the world law enforcement knows right off the bat hey here's a joker that's doing something illegal on the internet! it paints a red flag right on your butt and invitation for them to investigate you! You far safer with An ordinary browser! All you are is just one of the crowd on the internet. But when you get a browser which is unique that throws your IP address you're all kinds of different changes you're just like that guy at 2 in the morning in drug town with his dark tinted windows the police know you're there to commit some kind of a crime and you're a Target. A VPN on the other hand make sure IP address relatively invisible without attracting a lot of attention! But don't count on a VPN to save you the police can still do deep packet inspection and they do it all the time if you're watching child porn  or buying dope on the internet. A buying machine gun etc don't count on anything to save you there is nothing that is going to save you from the police and the FBI they know how to catch you.

      I think you are correct.  I would like to add that Georgfritz  should take some time to study blackhat hacking, greyhat hacking , and white hat hacking. The reason why I say that is because the police usually hires greyhats or whitehat hackers to catch people do illegal things on the internet.

    Yes but a lot of the TOR nodes are run by the authorities, if the first node is run by the authorities then they know the IP connecting to them. It’s always best to use a good VPN before connecting to TOR

    If it's perfectly configured then yes.  Be mindful it only works on the tor web.  However there is always a risk of an "IP leak" from something miss configured and if you don't use a good VPN anonymizer it increases that risk.  There's other ways of getting tracked depending on what you are trying to do, the IP is only one piece.

    If you are asking this forum for how to surf the dark web anonymously, that means you are so going to jail.
