|Short description=Anonymous Internet communication system
|Full description='Tor' lets users communicate anonymously on the Internet. It can anonymize web browsing, instant messaging, IRC, SSH, and more. It hides communications by bouncing them around a distributed network of servers called onion routers -- this system makes it hard for recipients, observers, and even the onion routers themselves to track the source of the stream.

|Full description=Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security known as traffic analysis. Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location. Tor works with many of your existing applications, including web browsers, instant messaging clients, remote login, and other applications based on the TCP protocol.

Tor

https://torproject.org/
Anonymous Internet communication system

Tor is anonymous network router to improve privacy on the Internet.

Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location. Tor works with many of your existing applications, including web browsers, instant messaging clients, remote login, and other applications based on the TCP protocol.

Tor can't solve all anonymity problems. It focuses only on protecting the transport of data. Please check the available documentation before using Tor.
