Introduction

Tor Browser protects your privacy while you are surfing the Internet: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked.

Tor Browser is based on Firefox and will be familiar to many users.

Install

You have to update the browser regularly to keep your protection strong. In Debian torbrowser-launcher is used to run Tor Browser and update it automatically.

  1. Using Terminal as Root execute the following command
    apt-get install torbrowser-launcher
  2. Run the browser in GNOME by typing "Tor Browser" in the Activities Search. Run it form the terminal by enterng torbrowser-launcher command.

  3. On the first start the new version of the browser will automatically be downloaded and installed. On every subsequent run a check for updates will be done.
