    If your goal is to encrypt the transmitted data so that your Internet provider could not analyze it, then both Tor and your VPN, which you yourself set up , can come up with ! I would not recommend using any third-party VPNs, since their owner can see all the transmitted traffic + client IP (that is, your IP address). If you use a third-party VPN service, then you are guaranteed to get a spyware who, at a minimum, also knows your real IP address! If this is a paid VPN, then it is absolutely not suitable for anonymity, since the VPN service does not only know your IP and has access to all transmitted data, then it knows who you are by your payment details.

    The self-configured OpenVPN allows you to encrypt the transmitted traffic and integrate your devices into a virtual private network. You can also hide your real IP address and bypass site blocking. But for anonymity, this option is not suitable, because for the operation of OpenVPN you need to rent a VPS, for which you have to pay. Although if you use cryptocurrency or other anonymous methods for payment, OpenVPN will help you to be anonymous.

    Using a single proxy has the same disadvantages as a VPN: the eavesdropper + proxy service knows your real IP address. An additional drawback in the absence of encryption is that your ISP can still analyze your traffic and even block access to websites.

    The situation with IP concealment improves if a proxy chain is used, because (depending on the settings), each next proxy knows the IP address of the previous node (always) and the IP address of 1 node before the previous one (sometimes). If we consider that traffic is not encrypted at any stage, and a certain part of public proxies is just honeypots (intended for the exploitation of users), then the proxy option is not the best way to ensure anonymity.
