What is Tor?
Tor, short for “The Onion Router,” is a privacy-focused network that helps users browse the internet anonymously by routing their web traffic through a series of volunteer-run servers, making it difficult for anyone to trace the origin of the data.
Here’s a breakdown of key components:
- Tor Network: Tor works by routing your internet traffic through a series of random nodes (usually three) within the Tor network. Each node only knows about the previous and next nodes in the circuit, enhancing privacy.
- Tor Browser: The Tor Browser is a modified version of the Mozilla Firefox web browser. It’s designed to work seamlessly with the Tor network, providing enhanced privacy features.
- Open Tor Browser
Launch the Tor Browser by double-clicking its icon on your computer.
- Access Tor Browser Setting
Click on the three horizontal lines (hamburger menu) in the top-right corner of the Tor Browser window. This opens the main menu.
- Go to preferences
From the main menu, click the preferences window, and select “Privacy & Security”.
- Privacy & Security Settings
In the left sidebar of the preferences window, select Privacy & Security.
