What is Tor Browser for Mac

The Tor Browser Bundle is an easy-to-use portable package of Tor, Vidalia, Torbutton, and a Firefox fork preconfigured to work together out of the box. It contains a modified copy of Firefox that aims to resolve the privacy and security issues in mainline version.

Tor was originally designed, implemented, and deployed as a third-generation onion-routing project of the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory. It was originally developed with the U.S. Navy in mind, for the primary purpose of protecting government communications. Today, it is used every day for a wide variety of purposes by normal people, the military, journalists, law-enforcement officers, activists, and many others.

v10.0.8 is out, BUT! Do not bother downloading it!!! The DMG is NOT a DMG. Instead it's a ISO 9660 (Rockridge) optical disk formatted volume which macOS will mount but will NOT OPEN. That makes the thing worthless. Some dummy over at the project will have to clean up their mess. Watch for 10.0.9!

I have used Tor Browser over the past couple of years! A relative of mine suggested it to me and was a former FBI agent. No hassle, no ads, just a clean way to browse! My only concern is that it is somewhat slower than some browsers, but if someone wants a great way to browse without all the hassle, Tor Browser is it!

There's a MAJOR security flaw in versions previous to 8.0.3. So be sure to UPDATE! "Tor Browser Has a Flaw That Governments May Have Exploited" https://www.pcmag.com/news/363656/tor-browser-has-a-flaw-that-governments-may-have-exploited ***Don't take Tor Browser security for granted. It has been regularly hacked and is NOT perfect security protection on the Internet. It's BETTER security on the Internet, with of course a cost of speed depending upon what you're doing. [IOW: It is not heresy to point out that Tor Browser can be insecure. Zealots: Deal with it. Stop pretending.]

If you're running into a version 7.0.7 bug that stalls and times out the opening of the installer, you are not alone. The workaround is to update Tor Browser from within the application. Go to the menu bar, click on "Tor Browser" then "About Tor Browser". The app should immediately start downloading and updating itself to version 7.0.7, successfully.

Today's 7.0.7 update appears on MacUpdate, yet the link on the TOR site is still for 7.0.6. The new version does download from <https://www.torproject.org/dist/torbrowser/7.0.7/TorBrowser-7.0.7-osx64_en-US.dmg> BUT, it reports TOR is out of date, and checking for updates returns No Update Available!

Really, this is not the order in which to release an update. Get it working on your OWN website before a third-party site publishes its release. Whose snafu is this?

Using Tor automatically increases surveillance and logging of your IP's activity, achieving the exact opposite of what the app was designed to do, which was to provide privacy/anonymity. It currently provides neither. You may as well wave a red flag. VPN is the best privacy option, and it's not perfect.

Good web browser. It is definitely for users who are a little bit paranoid about their security or want to hide their IP. Unfortunately you may not reach or see the content of some websites with it (for example Apple Support Communities). This is the only drawback. It loads pages pretty fast. Like it.

Something smells about Tor, and I'm not sure what it is. Every single launch I make, night or day, whichever version and regardless of the last hop exit country which does vary, the FIRST hop from Tor ALWAYS lands in France. This is without exception and has occurred over many weeks of experimenting. If Tor were truly random like it is supposed to be why does the first hop *always* hit a computer or server in France?

I like this browser, because it let's me browse through the Internet without being tracked down by someone. Using Tor is much easier than using programs that change the IP address. Pros: - Great tool for those seeking privacy on the Internet - Comprehensible design - Stable and efficient work Cons: - Fails to access some websites (e.g. Apple Discussions) - Sometimes it's a bit slow Bottom Line: I would certainly recommend this browser to anyone.

But luckily I just made a profile backup with FEBE yesterday which I successfully restored. I haven't tested it further but I wanted to point out this "little" inconvenience before anyone else gets trapped. ;-) Backup your profile before you use Tor Browser or use a dedicated account.

Installation is drag and drop. Launch it and you're already browsing anonymously. It just works. It's a bit slow, but that's the nature of the Tor network.

Someone is up-voting TrueCrypt and Cryptix. Cryptix is closed source and close source crypto is really hard to be trusted. I wouldn't! TrueCrypt just shut down operations saying it was unsecure to be used: http://truecrypt.sourceforge.net/ says "WARNING: Using TrueCrypt is not secure as it may contain unfixed security issues." Combine those two and that makes me really think if we have a person on someone's payroll upvoting unsecure software. Hard to proove but the pattern behind this is really strange. Same applies for the GPG Suite page: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/9417/gpg-suite Again TrueCrypt (unsecure) and Cryptix (can not be trusted and seems to use weak security) are up-voted. Macupdate should really reconsider the entire voting system for similar software. When it comes to security related software this is no fun and can endanger peoples lifes if they use unsecure software. I recommend using Tor / GPG Suite, please refrain from using untested closed source software which you cannot trust.

Privacy is a huge issue. Snooping around happens everywhere, everyday. What can we do? We can use TOR. Based on FF, TOR is fantastic at what it does- providing anonymity. With servers all over the world, TOR randomly keeps changing my location worldwide. Once if its Romania, the next time its Greece! It has far more reachability than HMA or any other web proxy programs. The only problem I have with it is that we don't get to choose the place and also that it skips servers sometimes when we are in the middle of something! And also I'm concerned about how safe it actually is, after what happened last year. Hope TOR isn't compromised. Long live anonymity!

I really appreciate the efforts of the Tor project, but this is annoying. Tor has it listed as version 2.3.25-13 on their website. But if I "get info" on the downloaded app, it shows it's version 2.3.25-12 just as it's listed at MacUpdate. Why the discrepancy? As vital as using the latest version for best practices is with this app, you'd think the Tor team would put a greater emphasis on on proper versioning practices. 2.3.25-13 is also within the name of the zip file as well. Is this a double typo or is something else going on here?

This is probably common knowledge. "Other skeptics wondered if the Tor Project is a plot by the NSA to identify Internet users who feel the strongest need to hide themselves. Tor has previously admitted that the US Department of Defense was one of its principal financial backers, with some estimating that as much as 86 percent of Tors 2010 budget came from the Defense Department." http://www.darkpolitricks.com/2013/08/tor-anonymity-network-membership-has-doubled-since-nsa-leak/

I’m afraid the Tor developers’ rational for their confounding version numbering is nothing less than bankrupt, as attested by the multitude of insider and end-user respondents here and on other fora. Calling Tor "version 1.0" repeatedly and seemingly in perpetuity is bullshit (please pardon my profane but long overdue rhetorical intensification, since nothing else seems to work). Publishing the official but quashed version numbers, such as the current official v. 1.0 (the umteenth application of that v. number) which is actually designated v. 2.3.25-5, is the only honest and non-confusing way to go forward, as evidenced by the very many public comments published here and elsewhere at the release of every new “version 1.0” to which we’ve been subject for months now — many such months. In addition, the only truly useful and HONEST practice would be to publich the actual changes in each version CONCURRENT WITH THEIR RELEASE, which heretofore has NOT been the company’s practice. We like Tor and its attendant technologies. And we even more appreciate that the developers have continued to offer it for free, But this freeness and its attendant versional obfuscation make uncomfortable if not antithetical bedfellows. Come on, what do you have to hide lose? Or more to the point, what have you been hiding with this dishonest practice? And is is it any wonder that so many new such apps have been release in the just the past few months? Or has that gone unheeded too?

Tor's Vidalia looks pretty good and the usability is a pretty close to Safari, Firefox, etc. Importing bookmarks is very simple and fast. Preferences are many and you should look at them to make sure that they are set the way you want them to be set. You have great power here. Performance is slow. Glacial sometimes. Watch the lower left of the browser window to see all of the activity going on. I attribute this to the additional latency introduced by going through proxy/anonymizing servers.

The current version of 10/30/2012 works perfectly fine on my Mac. Although the speed is, of course, lower than with my normal browser and without Tor I am quite impressed how well this works. Thanks a lot to the developer team! This is simply excellent and deserves all five stars.

I recently was at an adult site with Tor enabled and got a notice that some gal in my town (it actually named the town that I live in) wanted to chat with me. I if Tor is really working as it's supposed to, how and why was my town's name identified? How can anyone really be certain that Tor actually works as avertised and keeps one's web use anonymous?

Tried 1.0 but on quit it still won't launch. Until then it ran great! Vidalia on quitting Tor browser said I was still connected. Although Tor browser didn't launch it said I was connected and all the functions of Vidalia worked well. I had to tray both as Tor just wouldn't launch.

OK I am right now using Tor on my Other iMac using Snow Leopard 10.6.8 I know as soon as I close the app I won't be able to get it back. Vidalia stays on and I can view the Network with Vidalia but when I try to start Tor I see a flash like it is going to start but then it never opens. I do have Firefox 16.02 Is there a conflict? If anyone can help me I would appreciate it. I also put a posting under the Trouble Posts.

Wow: MacUpdate's description blurb is hilariously incorrect. The blurb describes an "installer" and checking or not checking various boxes regarding "running at startup". What gets downloaded is not an installer, but a web-browsing app that simply runs upon double-clicking. There are no options of any kind presented for "startup" or "scripts". There is no folder /Library/Tor created by running this. As far as I can see (by searching my hard drive with EasyFind), nothing called "Privoxy" has been installed, contrary to the blurb.

I have never used Tor. One reason is a few concerns I have. Perhaps someone here who is knowledgeable of Tor -- and who has used it (not a Tor rep) -- can offer some answers: 1. Considering that an http request bounces along a few hops before reaching the targeted server -- that is, your final destination -- how much is the latency increased? Is it substantial? Hardly noticeable? 2. How much -- if at all -- does Tor affect connections to secure -- https -- websites, such as bank accounts, utility agencies, etc., where one must log in, and perhaps enter a renewable pass code? 3. What is the trust level of Tor insofar as data collection is concerned? These are my basic concerns before I even consider using this product. Thanks!

This is NOT 'Tor 1.0'. There is no 'Tor' except as a project name. This is TorBrowser. AND: There is no TorBrowser '1.0'. The current version is 2.2.35-11. (The Get Info box for TorBrowser has always said '1.0' and will always continue to say '1.0'). No wonder people get confused about the Tor Project when even the download sites can't get the version numbers right! If you really want to start understanding the Tor Project, visit the Tor Project: https://www.TorProject.org/ The Tor Project writes two main pieces of software: 1) TorBrowser, as linked above. 2) Vidalia, which is NOT linked above. Here is the link: https://www.torproject.org/projects/vidalia.html Tor technology takes time to learn. Start with the TorBrowser then dive into Vidalia when, or if you are ready. Tor is helpful for maintaining our US Constitutional right to PRIVACY. Thanks to the fascist Corporate Oligarchy corruption of our US government, our constitutional right to privacy as citizens on US soil is being destroyed. Fight back with the Tor Project and other privacy maintenance software. Tell the Corporate Oligarchy and their political puppets to get out of the USA and die in some forsaken hole of their own digging and devising. They are not welcome here.

I played with PGP and also Tor and Vidalia over the past few years but I am really not paranoid enough to use them every day. But I love what they promise. And Tor is essential for very many people who are in danger and who don't live a life as free as I think I live.

I don't need this every day. I really don't. But it makes me happy that it exists and is available in the same way that I have happy that PGP and other public key encryption apps are still unbreakable. It makes me feel like I am free and I truly live in freedom. So, while I don't really have an issue with anonymity (should I) I love that it is freely accessible. Especially in other countries where they aren't so free.

Excellent software if you need to hide your browsing habits or have to deal with sensitive information on the web. Combined with Proxy Switchy!, it's possible to activate Tor with a single click on Google Chrome. If you live in a country that restricts internet use, I suggest downloading the Tor Browser Bundle from their website. Just put in on a USB flash drive and you can access the net from any computer without leaving any traces of your activity.

The title description on this page is wrong. Vidalia was not "formerly known" as Tor, Vidalia is a graphical interface to Tor: https://www.torproject.org/projects/vidalia.html.en "Vidalia is a cross-platform graphical controller for the Tor software, built using the Qt framework...Vidalia lets you start and stop Tor, see how much bandwidth you are consuming, see how many circuits you currently have active, see where these circuits are connected on a global map, view messages from Tor about its progress and current state, and let you configure your Tor client, bridge, or relay with a simple interface...Vidalia does not work alone, it requires Tor to be useful."

Important security flaw. There's no auto-update option? The last update was vital and there was no alert or auto-update built into Vidalia? Seem like a really bad idea to not have an auto-update or at least an option to be informed of critical updates for an app where if it fails it can get you imprisoned and/or killed in some situations. Needs this now before they get someone killed.

Firstly, although the link here was not available when I attempted to download here there does seem to be a more recent version (0.2.6) available here: https://www.torproject.org/download.html.en Upon reading earlier today of the significant risk internet web browsing poses, I liked the idea of making my IP address anonymous and after looking at several other apps (NetShade, JonDo, MacPoxy...which unfortunately does not have a PPC version etc.), I acquired Tor to accomplish this task. After spending the better part of an entire afternoon trying to get it to function, I gave up and regrettably relinquished it to my trash bin. The instructions where to vague for a newbie like myself. For instance does it ONLY function with Firefox or is it suppose to also work with Safari as I had tried ? Within the advanced settings of the Network utility, specifically under the "Proxies" tab in the space provided before entering the port number (8118, 9050), does one enter localhost the actual word(s) or a specific number ie 170.0.0 etc. Bottom line is that no matter what I tried nothing worked. Is anyone actually running this successfully and if so would it be to much to ask for a simple step by step that is of more detail then the torproject.org site provides ? Too bad as in theory it seems like an excellent concept.
