The Tor Project : Anonymity Online


Source Dexter

As of now, we don’t have any privacy online. It can be the government or websites we browse , keep an eye out for what we do and store that data. And in times like these what we need is a tool to protect us from the exploitation and protect our privacy.

Why should we be worried?
That is because website knows from where a person is browsing and identifies the user. Then starts profiling the user. This helps them to send targeted ads to the user in a hope that the user will buy it. This information can then be sold to others and they exploit it.The result can be unwanted mails , ads and many more.  Now there is a near to perfect solution to it. Its TOR.

Tor helps the user to stay anonymous , provided the user obeys certain browsing rules while using the tor network.
