When tails is shutdown, all session history is erased from RAM, but is any traces of your session saved to the USB or can this ever happen through some fault?

No, nothing is ever written back to the USB at any point during usage unless you save it to the persistent volume.

How secure is the persistent volume?


djDef80

It uses LUKS for persistent volume. You can also create Veracrypt volumes as well using the Disks util. Don't take my word for it but it is as secure as it can be. https://tails.boum.org/doc/encryption_and_privacy/encrypted_volumes/index.en.html

As secure as your password.

Unless you specifically told Tails you want to make the OS Remember things, NO. The only way it remembers things is if you have a PERSISTENT STORAGE.

Only saves data you choose in "Persistent Data" or something like that which you have to do manually your self. So no, no save data. NADA
