Tor browser is one of the browsers most internet users deem secure compared to other browsers. Let us quickly look at how to download Tor browser and install it.
The Onion Router (TOR) is an open-source web browser that puts the user’s privacy before anything else. It has been one of the most common browsers people turn to when they want the freedom to browse the internet without limitation.
How does Tor work?
Tor uses a military-grade traffic routing system to route the user’s traffic through multiple servers worldwide. This helps conceal the user’s traffic so it becomes almost impossible for trackers to track the traffic back to identify the user.
The name of this browser was derived from the way it works. It covers the traffic of the user like a bulb of onion with multiple layers.
The Tor browser is what grants people access to what is known as the ‘Dark Web‘. A collection of websites that are completely anonymous because their servers use Tor relays. Most of these websites have .onion extensions and their owners cannot be verified. No information at all can be verified about Dark Web sites.
