What began as the security project for military and law oriented firms has now transformed into something for the general public. TOR (short for “The Onion Router”) is actually a network consisting of tunnels, nodes, and servers enabling people to secure and hide their identity from content and websites on the internet. This network enables users to connect with their friends and/or customers without the danger of being spied on, having your information, and more importantly your identity, being compromised.
The threats on the internet are more numerous than anyone would hope to count. Hackers, Business’, the NSA, your Ex, or Exs’ (keeping it open here) — just to name a few.
