Avoid surveillance, censorship, advertising, and viruses
Tails uses the Tor network to protect your privacy online and help you avoidcensorship. Enjoy the Internet like it should be.
Your secure computer anywhere
Shut down the computer and start on your Tails USBstick instead of starting on Windows, macOS, or Linux. Tails leaves no trace on the computer when shut down.
A TOR hidden service is a website or app of some kind whose location is hidden in exactly the same way that the true location or identity of web browsers is hidden by TOR in the example above. These hidden services can only be accessed by other TOR users – not by regular search engines or regular internet users. Then, download/update your TOR browser to the latest version. (Using TOR without a VPN is still risky, and traceable). Go to your TOR browser’s settings, increase its security to “safest“. You can read this Tor review for details. Close all other running programs on your system.
