Test result - Tor for privacy with legal use only

hello,

my first post ever on AT&T, not sure if this issue was raised before. i recently switched to unlimited Prepaid. i think AT&T has the best wireless service, however i could hardly trust their networks because of their privacy record. So i run a test on my Android phone and i found at least one critical issue. This forum didn't accept my screen-shot pictures, but the test was done on "OONI Probe" and it failed with, "Middle-Boxes detected, HTTP Header Field Manipulation"  due to Network Tampering. Can an AT&T employee or another Guru please explain this issue ??  i rarely use Tor Network for legal work.

 

Regards,

Dude, I'm not gonna pretend to know what any of that means because that's not my field. Maybe somebody else here knows. What I can say is that if you're that scared and distrustful of AT&T, then don't use it. Simple fix. But AT&T doesn't care if you use Tor for "legal work" or not, only whether you use its connection to access illegal content. As you said, privacy is a major issue and there's just no Internet provider out there that can be trusted one hundred percent.

good response, thanx. i'm baffled that an AT&T employee & or a Moderator didn't bother to respond. Some providers have better track than others. i'm law abiding, but i can be ignorant.
