The Tor Project is free software that helps you thwart attempts by third parties like you government who are interested in spying on your internet sojourn. It works 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, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location.”
If you happen to live in a country where your government likes to snoop around what you do online, then Tor can come in really handy. It’s use is not limited to this but also is ideal for corporate workers, government employees who work on sensitive things, jounalists, whistle blowers and more.
The project is run by a worldwide group of volunteers who run relays from all parts for the globe. There are a number of ways you can get involved in the project, the most important of which is to consider running a relay. Tor is available for download for all three platforms: Windows, Linux and Mac OSX.
If you are concerned about some big eyes out there watching all the moves you do online, then Tor could be your solution. Give is a try and if you find it useful, you could make some donation to the guys behind the project.
