When we use this browser for the first time it will need a slight setting up, depending on what we are going to use it for, let's learn how to use it. In this window we see below we can choose to connect to a Tor Network right away or to any other proxy we want. Anyway, Tor Network as it is assures anonymity, but if we want to use another proxy, let’s see how to do it.
If your network requires a separate proxy address for Internet connection, Tor Browser gives you an option to do so. We just need to choose “Yes” and in the next step you will be able to introduce all the necessary data for network connection. For more security and anonymity of the network it is recommended to use safe and trusted proxy, or paid proxy. Anyway, not any proxy may be valid, so you need to know to choose right before using any.
Now, going a few steps back, we will choose the option of connecting to Tor proper network, and let’s see the easy it is to use it. We simply need to click on “Connect” and we will see a window saying “Connecting to the Tor network”. When the process is finished, Tor Browser will auto restart and we will be able to start using it and see its main features.
Its interface is very similar to Firefox, in fact, both browsers use the same engine. Now we can see that we “are now free to browse the Internet anonymously”. And it is really so.
Let’s now see some privacy options of this browser. As we can see, all is configured perfectly for us not to have any unnecessary worries about our privacy.
A very useful tool available with Tor Browser download is creating new identity. Even though the browser doesn’t track your IP or search history, it’s recommended to refresh the IP address from time to time. When we choose this option, the browser restarts in a matter of seconds and we will already have our new Internet “identity”.
