+<span class="guilabel">New Identity</span> feature
+==================================================
+
+The <span class="guilabel">New Identity</span> feature of Vidalia forces Tor
+to use new circuits but only for new connections.
<div class="caution">
-[[As explained on our warning page|about/warning#identities]], this feature of
-<span class="application">Vidalia</span> is not a solution to really separate different contextual identities.
-<strong>Shutdown and restart Tails instead.</strong>
+<p>This feature is not a good solution to [[separate contextual identities|about/warning#identities]], as:
+
+<ul>
+<li>Already existing connections might stay open.</li>
+<li>Other sources of information can reveal your past activities, for
+example the cookies stored in <span class="application">Tor Browser</span>.</li>
+</ul>
