Publisher's Description

Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security.

The Tor network is a group of volunteer-operated servers that allows people to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. Tor's users employ this network by connecting through a series of virtual tunnels rather than making a direct connection, thus allowing both organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy. Along the same line, Tor is an effective censorship circumvention tool, allowing its users to reach otherwise blocked destinations or content. Tor can also be used as a building block for software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features.

Tor is beneficial for everyone who prefers to continue their online activity out the eyes of marketers, Providers, and sites. This involves those getting around censorship rules within the nation, persons trying to mask their Ip, or anybody else who doesn't even want personal surfing habits connected to them

While you are using a VPN in combination with Tor Users get all of the privacy and security needed to prevent snoops, hackers, ISPs, and government monitoring.

Connect your IP address and you'll connect to any region VPN server like UK etc which encrypts your connection.
The application is subsequently forwarded to the destination by at least three relays.

I've used tor browser for about a month and been pretty satisfied. But it does not protect the network from traffic analysis. That's exactly why I've decided to subscribe for a vpn service. But I've faced with a problem consisting in the necessiity to pay for a decent service. According to many reviews, there is no reliable free vpns (https://www.bestvpnratin...n-providers-make-profit). Have you ever use such services for free? Are they so worthless as declared?

Tor is not safe and secure at all. It started as a Government project developed for the Navy. Government monitors everything on Tor. I would suggest you to use Hide My IP VPN instead, safe service and with a low cost also...

Tor is still safe to use as long as those using it don't get lazy or use old, buggy software. Tho if you're doing illegal stuff anywhere online you're taking risks.

Pros: It's free: Tor is free and open-source.
Hides your information: It hides your IP and other data while browsing websites.
Network security: The websites you open in this network are secured and encrypted.
Democratic activities: You can do democratic activities easily by using tor
All Internet Content Is Accessible

Cons: Drawbacks: While your data is encrypted along each of the relay nodes, the final connection point at the last relay in the chain can be compromised if the requested site does not use SSL. Tor has a known drawback of substantially slowing down your browsing because of the numerous hops your data is relayed through

Bottom Line: Tor is beneficial for everyone who prefers to continue their online activity out the eyes of marketers, Providers, and sites. This involves those getting around censorship rules within the nation, persons trying to mask their Ip, or anybody else who doesn't even want personal surfing habits connected to them

While you are using a VPN in combination with Tor Users get all of the privacy and security needed to prevent snoops, hackers, ISPs, and government monitoring.

PERSONALLY .. I'm not bothered about the Arguments "For or Against" TOR

For those who want to give it a Go. Tread "very" Carefully.
It is "NOT" Noob territory.

Well said @Uriel

It's simple. If you want to dabble with this project. Don't get up
to any mischief. Hundreds, even thousands of the IP's used are listed
on Honeypot & Anti-Spam sites. If you don't understand what I've just
said, Leave well Alone. Still gets 5* tho..... lol

@JKooks: That article is only partially true and aimed at those who don't understand how the onion network works. For example, there is no exit node if one stayed within the onion network where the URL address ends with ".onion".. And those who want more security should download the Linux distro named "TAILS" anyway. It's completely open source and the fingerprint isn't going to match your usual unsecured operating system. Heck, you can even run it off of a live CD or a thumb drive making it easy to conceal from the police. And for those who may still be paranoid about their activities should search for the term "wardriving" and learn how to protect yourself at your end even further

As for this update, it probably has something to do with the FBI recently injecting spyware into the onion servers of a convicted paedophile. Those who visit these servers can become infected if their TOR Bundle hasn't been updated and still is running on Firefox 17. Those who have Firefox 17 can become infected through iframes and malicious java script so it's a good idea to update your TOR bundle.
