What does TOR mean?

TOR stands for “The Onion Router” and is an open source privacy network as well as a free web browser designed to protect users anonymity and resist censorship. Allowing them to surf the web anonymously and access sites on the “deep web”.

TOR was specifically designed to protect user privacy, which is increasingly important in this age digital interactions. When using the TOR browser and the TOR network, user IP address data is routed and encrypted through several steps, leading to complete anonymity when using the internet. TOR keeps users requests, communications, transactions, and identities untraceable and private, but not necessarily secure.
