I’ve heard tails is great for privacy and security, but just how good is it? On a scale of 1-10 where 1 is publicly accessible and 10 is a literal black box, how secure is tails? What are its limitations, from a security standpoint?

I’d be interested in how the fact that the Tor browser in Tails has uBlock Origin pre-installed affects the security/anonymity of the browser instance. I’m all for blocking ads and trackers everywhere, but since regular Tor doesn’t have an ad blocker, wouldn’t fingerprinters be able to identify at least that you’re on Tails and not a normal OS? And therefore also know when you change where you’re accessing Tor from?

(Also, I totally thought this was referring to Tails from Sonic for a second lol)
