Tor Browser 13.0



Tor Browser is a free web browser and open network. It helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security.

The browser also protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers around the world. It prevents anyone monitoring your internet connection from knowing what sites you visit. It also prevents the sites you visit from knowing your physical location. It allows you to access blocked websites.

The browser allows you to use Tor on Windows, MacOS, or Linux without the need to install any software. It can run from a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured web browser to protect your anonymity, and is self-contained (portable).

block tracking devices

TB isolates every website you visit so that third-party ads and tracking can't follow you. Any cookies are automatically cleared when you have finished browsing. So is your browsing history.

RESIST FINGERPRINTING

The browser aims to make all users look the same, which makes it difficult for you to be fingerprinted based on browser and device information.

Layered encryption

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

Do not torrent through the Tor browser

Torrenting apps ignore proxy settings and make direct connections even when they have to use Tor. Even if your torrent app only connects through Tor, you'll often be sending your real IP address in the tracking GET request, because that's how torrents work. Not only do you anonymize your torrenting and other concurrent web traffic on Tor this way, you also slow down the entire Tor network for everyone else.

Use HTTPS versions of websites

Tor will encrypt your traffic to and within the Tor network. But the encryption of your traffic to the final destination site depends on that site. To help ensure private encryption for websites, the browser includes HTTPS Everywhere to force the use of HTTPS encryption with major websites that support it. However, you should still watch your browser's URL bar to ensure that websites you provide sensitive information have to display a blue or green URL bar button.

Do not open documents downloaded through Tor while online

The browser will warn you before automatically opening documents that external applications handle. Do not ignore this warning. You should be very careful when downloading documents via Tor (especially DOC and PDF files).

Use bridges and/or find a company

The browser tries to prevent attackers from learning which destination websites you are connecting to. However, by default, it does not prevent anyone monitoring your internet traffic from knowing that you are using the Tor browser. If this interests you, you can reduce this risk by configuring Tor to use a Tor Bridge relay instead of connecting directly to the public Tor network.
