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.
To keep your protection strong you need to update the Tor Browser regularly. In Debian the easier way to do that is to install Tor Browser using torbrowser-launcher. Which automatically install Tor Browser, run it, update it to keep its protection strong and protect your privacy.
- Using Terminal as Root execute the following command
apt-get install torbrowser-launcher
Run the browser in GNOME by typing "Tor Browser" in the Activities Search. Alternatively, run it form the Terminal by entering torbrowser-launcher command.
- 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.
