Tor for Windows 5.5.5
Software Product Description
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.
FreewareFiles tested Tor for Windows 5.5.5 on 2016-04-26 using leading antivirus scanners and found it 100% Clean.

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
