The Onion Router, or simply TOR, is a popular network of servers that enables Internet users to browse anonymously. It has become a widely-used solution for those who seek web anonymity and want to feel safe and secure on-line. A lot of people trust TOR with their private information and rely on it. Today we talk about TOR, its peculiarities and the benefits it provides.
People who are considering using it should make sure they really need it. The first point to be made here is that TOR does not offer Internet security, it offers anonymity.
Why do people seek anonymity?
We use the Internet because of the various reasons: some users work on-line, some look for entertainment, others study on-line, etc. Not every user needs a tor proxy service.
Here are some prominent examples of users who generally would not benefit from using TOR:
· those who watch kitties on YouTube
· those who read Wikipedia articles
· those who study in their college libraries
· those you use Google to find a plumber in their area
All of the above examples can be comprised into one category, that is those users who have nothing to hide and no secret info that a hacker can possibly steal from them during “a man in the middle attack”.
Other category of users obviously includes those who consider their web-browsing data sensitive enough to think about anonymity and security. Some examples here are:
· bloggers and heavy social media users who post and chat a lot and do not want third parties to access their chat history or hack into their account to post ugly stuff
· people who want to access banned web-services or web-sites (Netflix, Sportify, Facebook,etc)
· activists use Tor to anonymously report abuses from danger zones
· businesses use to keep business strategies confidential
· media, militaries and ordinary users that want to protect themselves and their private data
If you are considering using Tor proxy server, you have to take into account another major point: the connection speed will decrease when using TOR because of the way it works (your Internet traffic goes through the network of TOR-connected computers and, henceforth, your Internet traffic is not associated with you).
The last major issue with using tor proxy software is that you most likely have to use a TOR web browser. Privatoria understands the importance of the TOR concept. Our engineers carefully crafted TOR technology and made it possible to it use without a TOR browser and in ensemble with Privatoria Proxy service.
Using TOR plus Privatoria Proxy doubles your chances for anonymity and makes it practically impossible to trace your Internet browsing habits back to your real IP address.
