TOR is the abbreviation for The Onion Router. At the beginning, it was a global network of servers elaborated with the U.S. Navy that allowed users to surf the Internet discreetly. Today this is a noncommercial organization, whose main mission is studying and elaboration of online privacy instruments.
TOR is able to hide your identity by moving your traffic through various TOR servers, encoding it and making it untraceable. The person who attempts to trace you will see traffic coming from occasional nodes of TOR instead of your PC.
You may download TOR from the official page
. It is available for Windows, Mac OS and Linux.
After installing the program, you will be able access The Pirate Bay simply by going to
thepiratebay.org or by using the official TOR URL:
Proxy servers serve as a bridge between you and the Internet. It's an intermediate between you and the websites that you visit. Proxy servers offer different levels of performance, safety and privacy based on their configuration, requirements and company policy.
If you use a proxy server, your traffic passes through the proxy server on the path to the required address. After that, the response is returned through that same proxy server, and then the proxy server directs the data obtained from the webpage to you.
Most Internet users know what VPN is. However, not many of them use one. We strongly recommend you to use a Virtual Private Network, as it is a very important part of your Internet safety.
You should consider using VPN because it is a safe bridge between your computer and the websites you're visiting. The computer connects to a different computer, which can be located in a different country. In this case, your online traffic flows through this server. The final result: with regard to most websites, you're surfing from that server's geographical position rather than your own.
