 Tor-Browser Bundle
The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked.


Tor-browser available for many platforms that use the Tor network to protect your privacy by hiding the traces in the Internet, such as the recent sites you've visited, your physical location, and also enables users to visit blocked sites.
