TOR is a software that allows you to surf the net anonymously. In this way, your privacy is safe and the possibility of your information being recorded is almost nil.
Tor can be a great help to those people who live in dictatorships and where freedom of expression is a problem.
- Tor diverts traffic on its server.
- Tor encrypts the data received by the user.
- Tor does get the data to the final destination.
Your privacy is protected because Tor masks your IP address through the proxy on which is the outgoing traffic.
I personally tried Tor and the only slight drawback is a slightly lower speed navigation.
It’s a very interesting project carried out by experts and not seeking profit.
In a world where censorship is a cancer to be eradicated, I think it’s very important to give credit to people and projects like these.
