Can Penetrate the Dark Side of the Internet the Maybe for internet users still very rarely know about this one application.

Although it sounds terrible this application is actually an application that is safe enough to prevent someone watching your internet connection.

The features vary, from learning what sites you are visiting, to even preventing the sites you visit from tracking your location, to allowing you to access blocked sites.

Despite being allied that sounds useful, in fact the Tor Browser is becoming a controversial subject.

This is because the Tor Browser is available free and it's very easy to get it.

However, returning to the role and function you must know the pros and cons of this application if you intend to download it.

Because Tor is not an integrated application with leading search engine applications such as Google, Bing and Yahoo


Here's how the Tor Browser works, which uses encryption to shuffle data that is being communicated on the network.

Data routes between servers are randomly arranged in the Tor network to hide your online identity, including data related to private IP addresses.
This allows you to be an 'Anonymous' user with your identity hidden and unknown.

amun, does using the Tor Browser mean you're safe, maybe it depends on your usage.
If you use it to access dark sites like the Dark Web, don't expect you to surf calmly.

Because at that range, many hackers roam around and Google is not touched in other words, there is no protection if at any time your identity is hacked.
Although it sounds controversial, Tor can also be used for positive things including identity protection.

So you can surf with anonymity for people who want to browse the web without being tracked by their internet service providers, websites, governments and even other parties.

You can also use Tor to access services that are blocked by some internet providers, or the government.

Then the negative side is the use of the Tor Web which is identical to restricted access such as the Dark Web and the Deep Web which is said to contain more than 70% of access that has never been visited by ordinary Internet users.

In addition, the content provided also seems to make you be in another world as well as when you look at the terrible black market.

On the Dark Web or the Deep Web, it is used for illegal activities such as child pornography, the sale of illegal drugs to prostitution and human organ transactions here.


What Is the Tor Browser and Is It Safe to Use?

The internet world which is usually explored by most users basically just reaches the surface, because deep within the internet there is more than just searching. You can search for anything without any restrictions, but it's full of dangerous risks. This is what is called the Dark Web and to achieve that, we need special devices for this, and usually people use software like Tor.

So, many people ask me, what exactly is the function of Tor? is it safe to download? and is this available to everyone? This is a big question, because Tor software is often the subject of controversy. If you are considering downloading this software, then you need to be aware of the pros and cons, especially since Tor will allow you to browse some quite dark areas on the internet.

What is Tor?
In its simplest definition, Tor is a web browser software that hides your identity when online. This can be done in a number of different ways. First, it uses encryption to shuffle data that is being communicated on the network. Secondly, data routes between servers are randomly arranged in the Tor network to hide your online identity, including data associated with private IP addresses.

What is Tor used for?
Basically, Tor can be used for good and bad things (worst possibility, and we won't pretend to tell you, maybe you can see the worst)
First, from the Positive side: The best thing about Tor is that it provides anonymity for people who want to browse the web without being tracked by their internet service providers, websites, governments and even other parties. You can also use Tor to access services that are blocked by some internet providers, or the government.
The negative side: It is true that Tor has a dark side, but actually it does not come from the software itself, only to the places where you are exploring. You may have heard the term "Dark Web" before. This is a part of the internet that is often used for illegal activities such as child pornography, drug sales, prostitution, etc. And the Tor software is needed to access the Dark Web, so using this software can cause you to go to some pretty dark places.

Is Tor safe?
The easiest answer: Yes and no. But this software itself is safe to use. And, if you use it for basic functions in hiding your online identity, then you should not experience any major difficulties. However, if you use Tor with the intention to access the Dark Web, then you can actually be found quite easily from what you see. That's why if you have a webcam on a laptop or computer, it should be closed even if you think it's not active.

Is there a fee for Tor?
This software is free or free to download, however, you may be asked by the software developer to make a donation. You are not required to do this.


Conclusion

Tor does have benefits, but this is an extreme way to get anonymity online, and should only be used by those who feel really needed or are already experts at it. This is because of the risks associated with the Dark Web, Tor might not be a good choice for the average internet user.
