We believe everyone should be able to explore the internet with privacy. We are the Tor Project, a 501(c)3 US nonprofit. We advance human rights and defend your privacy online through free software and open networks. Since 2006, we have successfully helped global populations burdened by online surveillance and censorship access Internet resources more securely and safely with two gold-standard tools: Tor Browser and the underlying Tor network. Journalists, activists, whistleblowers, human rights defenders, LGBTQ+ and feminist groups, and average people concerned about their privacy use Tor to protect themselves from pervasive surveillance and safely route around censorship.
