    Looking to protect your privacy online and surf the web anonymously? Learn the simple steps to enable Tor Network and install Tor Browser on the Ubuntu 20.04 or 18.04 LTS using the command line terminal.

     

    Tor Browser that is based on Firefox is best known for its privacy and Tor network integration features. It is free & open-source and can be used to surf and chat anonymously on the Internet so that we can protect our privacy, data and remain clandestine over the web. It is possible because while exchanging the data, it uses a random overlay network that consists of thousands of relays. Moreover, the forwarded data traffic will also be in encrypted form, thus it becomes impossible to identify the source where the request was generated, hence, you leave no trace while using the Tor network. That is why people also use the “Tor Browser” to access websites available on the Darknet.

    Users can manually set the security level and whether they want to use the Tor Network or not because while it the speed of accessing the web will be decreased. Also, JavaScripts and HTML5 media are deactivated by default.
