What is tor browser?
Tor browser is a privacy concerned browser which uses onion routing to keep your data safe. Tor stands for “The Onion Router”, it makes your internet traffic to flow through two or more proxy servers so that no one can look into your data. Using Tor makes it more difficult to trace Internet activity of the user: this includes visits to Web sites, online posts, instant messages, and other communication forms. This principle was initially developed and used by the US Naval Research Laboratory for the use of government purposes. After that, the tor has been made public. But keep in mind that Tor is not meant to completely solve the issue of anonymity on the web. Tor is not designed to completely erase tracks but instead to reduce the likelihood for sites to trace actions and data back to the user. You can know more about Tor on their official website.
