How to install Tor Browser in Ubuntu

Aug 15, 2015
What is Tor?
Tor Browser is an internet browser based on firefox. It allows users to browse the internet anonymously. So, you can browse the blocked websites too. It hides your Ip address when you send or receive data from the internet. Your activity is encrypted so that you get privacy. Tor takes your internet requests and data through a huge network of hidden servers and the path is never the same

So by using Tor browser no website or organisation will be able to track your location or online activity.

To install it open your terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and enter the following commands

add the repository
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/tor-browser

update the sources
sudo apt-get update

install tor browser
sudo apt-get install tor-browser


Now open your dash and search for tor browser and launch it

click on the connect button

Enjoy browsing anonymously!
