YOUR PRIVACY BEGGINS WITH TOR 

A GUIDE TO BROWSING WEB SAFELY WITH TOR

What is Tor?

Tor, short for 'The Onion Router', is an open source privacy network that permits users to browse the web anonymously. The Tor project is a non-profit organisation that conducts research and development into online privacy and anonymity. It is designed to stop people - including government agencies and corporations - learning your location or tracking your browsing habits.

Benefits of using Tor


Browse freely


With Tor Browser, you are free to access sites your home network may have blocked. 
 

Block Trackers


Tor Browser isolates each website you visit so third-party trackers and ads can't follow you. Any cookies automatically clear when you're done browsing. So will your browsing history. 

Defend against surveilance


Tor Browser prevents someone watching your connection from knowing what websites you visit. All anyone monitoring your browsing habits can see is that you're using Tor.  

Multi-layered encryption


Your traffic is relayed and encrypted three times as it passes over the Tor network. The network is comprised of thousands of volunteer-run servers known as Tor relays. 

How Tor works

Tor Browser routes all your web traffic through the Tor network, anonymizing it. As the images above illustrate, Tor consists of a three-layer proxy, like layers of an onion (hence Tor's onion logo). Tor Browser connects at random to one of the publicly listed entry nodes, bounces that traffic through a randomly selected middle relay, and finally spits out your traffic through the third and final exit node.
