What is TOR
open-source software designed to enable anonymous communication on the internet. It works by routing your internet traffic through a network of volunteer-run servers around the world, which makes it difficult for anyone to track your activity, including your internet service provider and the websites you visit. TOR is often used by journalists, activists, and others who need to protect their identities online. To use TOR on Linux, you can download and install the TOR browser, which is a modified version of Firefox that is configured to use TOR by default.
