Tor is an excellent free browser for safe and anonymous networking. Tor is both a browser and a network, on the basis of which it works. The full name of the program is The Onion Router. This network was named Bulbous, because it involves several layers of encryption, protecting the online privacy of users, as several layers in the bulb envelops the core. The main task of Tor Browser is to hide traces of the user on the Internet. Due to this, you can work in the network completely anonymously. Tor is a cross-platform application and supports all known operating systems Mac OS, Windows, Linux or even for mobile devices.
Tor Browser is not a VPN service or a browser with a built-in VPN module, as many people believe. You can use both the Thor browser and the VPN at the same time to protect yourself even better. But these are two very different technologies, even if both of them aimed to increase confidentiality.
The Thor browser was created by order of the US Navy, the task was to protect the negotiations during reconnaissance operations. Now Tor is a non-profit organization engaged in research and creating tools for privacy and anonymity on the Internet. The program, look likes Mozilla Firefox but with an emphasis on keeping everything confidential. The program is free, open-source, allows you to achieve online privacy and avoid online restrictions.
Unlike another browsers Tor Browser:
* provides “invisibility” of the user, hides IP-address;
* it can bypass online restrictions, shows blocked sites and pages;
* do not contain embedded spy on users;
* do not make material benefits from user data;
* recommended and supported by many very well-known experts in the field of security;
The Tor network has thousands of servers round the world run by volunteers. Whenever you make connection in the app, the network selects three Tor relays and through them it connects to the Internet. Each section of the path is encrypted so that the repeaters do not know the full path of data from the sender to the receiver.
Because browser hides the session between user and the web sites, it allows you to surf anonymously through the network without the risk of online spying. The program is also useful for getting round online filters: you can watch websites that are inaccessible due to locks, and publish their information on such resources.
Today it is more and more difficult to keep confidentiality, anonymity and privacy online. The government, hackers and even our beloved Google come up with increasingly sophisticated ways of tracking user data. The Tor network, even taking into account its shortcomings, is an excellent participation in the work during the web.
