the lantern team already directly laid this to bed in their faq under
"is lantern safe for me to use."

"Lantern is not an anonymity tool. If you require that the sites you
visit do not learn your IP address or physical location (they normally
can, which may come as a surprise), or you cannot risk network monitors
being able to determine what sites you visit, we recommend you use Tor.
Tor is great software, and we communicate with the Tor team frequently.
Again, Lantern’s purpose is access. Tor’s purpose is anonymity."
