  • Conduct a security review of Chrome as a best practice against ISP eavesdropping and deep packet inspection (which can be used for throttling or controlling your traffic).
    • Check under [chrome://settings Chrome's settings] > "Advanced" > "Privacy and Security" to make sure the settings meet your need. We strongly encourage the "Protect you and your device from dangerous sites" and 'Send a "Do Not Track" request with your browsing traffic' options.

    • Linux users should make sure to download patches at night and perhaps share package files from a central package cache.
    • Android users can do this from the Google Play store under Settings > Auto-update apps.
  • Coordinate large downloads to occur during minimum usage hours. This is dependent on sysadmin analytics.
  • Install Tor Browser to access censored content.
  • Set "Compression yes" in ~/.ssh/config. Older clients may need to additionally add "CompressionLevel 8".
