About Tor Project Broswer

The Tor network is an anonymity system designed to protect the privacy and anonymity of its users. Unlike a VPN service, Tor is both free to use and decentralized.

Tor Browser isolates each website you visit so third-party trackers and ads can't follow you. Any cookies automatically clear when you're done browsing. So will your browsing history. They want you to browse freely. With Tor Browser, you are free to access sites your home network may have blocked.

It also defends you against surveillance. Tor Browser prevents someone watching your connection from knowing what websites you visit. All anyone monitoring your browsing habits can see is that you're using Tor.

And it resists fingerprinting. Tor Browser aims to make all users look the same, making it difficult for you to be fingerprinted based on your browser and device information.

Not to forget that Tor uses multi-layered encryption Your traffic is relayed and encrypted three times as it passes over the Tor network. The network is comprised of thousands of volunteer-run servers known as Tor relays.

There is a lot of misinformation being promoted about Tor.
