  •  In my own test today I found the same thing ... (0+ / 0-)

    and posted a warning in the update.  There are lots of sites, including my own, that grab your IP address in a little bit of Exit "malware" code that grabs your REAL IP, not your Tor IP as you leave. Rude I know, but hey, why not. I found that using Tor does not block this code, UNLESS you use HTTPS  which does fix this.

    VPN'ing DOES - in fact - correct this situation though.  If you VPN into a sight you are given an IP address of the place you VPN into, not your ISP IP address.  So my VPN suggestion still stands, download PrivitizeVPN, a free solution with reputable programmers behind it, and VPN in and surf that way.  It is very fast and works 100% of the time.
