Protect Your Online Privacy with TOR


If you are serious about online privacy then you should be using TOR to surf the internet.  Tor is free software for enabling anonymous communication. The name is an acronym derived from the original software project name The Onion Router. Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection, from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location.  The reality today is that everything you do online is easily traceable by third parties, including cyber criminals, unless you are using TOR.

Using TOR is a great way to protect your privacy online especially if you are using public Wi-Fi to connect to the internet. TOR is available for a variety of devices including Apple, Windows, and Android.
