Software Product Description

Advertisement
Tor is a toolset for organizations and people that want to improve their safety and security on the Internet. Using Tor can help you anonymize Web browsing and publishing, instant messaging, IRC, SSH, and other applications that use the TCP protocol. Tor also provides a platform on which software developers can build new applications with built-in anonymity, safety, and privacy features.

Communications are bounced around a distributed network of servers, called onion routers. Instead of taking a direct route from source to destination, data packets on the Tor network take a random pathway through several servers that cover your tracks so no observer at any single point can tell where the data came from or where itīs going. This makes it hard for recipients, observers, and even the onion routers themselves to figure out who and where you are. Torīs technology aims to provide Internet users with protection against "traffic analysis," a form of network surveillance that threatens personal anonymity and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security.

USER REVIEWS

"Good TEMPorary Security"

Reviewer: -Tom S

Review Date: 2016-01-27

Pros: This is a very good and secure program. THIS SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR DIAL-UPS because of the protocols and ports used.

Cons: Purchase a VPN if you want TRUE, long-lasting privacy without LOGS. I use PIA, but PureVPN is also a good alternative and both are very cheap.

Other Thoughts: None
