If you do not know what is this Tor Browser then read article what is a Tor network.
Download Tor Browser only from the official site torproject.org.
Be careful! There are sites that mimic the Tor Project website. For example, the site torprojectS.org (added the letter S at the end) is trying to install on your computer a trojan. Do not download Tor Browser on third-party sites.
By the way Tor Browser is made based on the Mozilla Firefox browser, since it is the only browser able to work independently with Socks connection without an operating system.
After installing Tor Browser is fully operational. Below is a screenshot from the official website.
Tor Browser Main Window.
Click Security Settings.
Set the security level:
Suitable for most users. Web sites are opened correctly and nothing is blocked.
Tor Browser is ready for use, and you can immediately begin to surf anonymously.
Note that using this setting only Tor Browser uses the Tor network. All other programs are using a direct connection to the Internet and send your real IP address.
What to do with the programs that are not able to work directly with the Socks protocol? For example, e-mail clients, and other browsers, instant messaging programs, etc. We recommend the use of Proxifier to redirect traffic of such programs in the Tor network.
Proxifier program can:
Home page of official site Proxifier.
Install the program Proxifier. This program is able to collect the traffic from operating system and flowing through a certain proxy server.
To configure Proxifier need to learn use the Tor network port. Go to the Preferences in Tor Browser.
Select the Network Settings.
See use the local IP address and port of the Tor network connection. These data must be inserted in the program Proxifier to the entire operating system, traffic was held in the Tor network. In this example, 127.0.0.1 and port 9150.
Run app Proxifier.
ATTENTION! It is important first to start Tor Browser and wait until the main window appears. And only after that start the program Proxifier.
Click on the Proxies button.
Click to Add.
Enter IP address and port. In our example: 127.0.0.1 and port 9150.
Click Yes - agree to use proxy by default.
Open any browser or email program. In the program Proxifier you will see a list of connection through the Tor network. In any browser you can check your IP address and to make sure that will show the IP address of the Tor network, and not your real IP address.
If something does not work, close the Tor Browser and Proxifier. And then start the Tor Browser and wait for the main window. Only then run Proxifier. No additional configuration is not necessary to do. All traffic will automatically go through the Tor network. Close the program Proxifier, to reclaim your real IP address.
