Tor, short for The Onion Router, is free and open-source software for enabling anonymous communication. It directs Internet traffic through a free, worldwide, volunteer overlay network, consisting of more than six thousand relays, for concealing a user's location and usage from anyone conducting network surveillance or traffic analysis. Using Tor makes it more difficult to trace the Internet activity to the user. Tor's intended use is to protect the personal privacy of its users, as well as their freedom and ability to conduct confidential communication by keeping their Internet activities unmonitored.

I am not using it. Pero just to share na lang din, the best way to hide your ip address/ location when browsing is to used VPN service.
Tor Browser is known to be a privacy focused browser pero hindi parin niya kaya i-hide yung info mo online, still makikita parin ng ISP mo yung binobrowse mo if you will not use VPN service.

A VPN and the Tor network share a lot in common, but they have different uses.

Both use proxies that act as relays through which internet connections are redirected. This hides the user’s real IP address and location from third parties, making users difficult to track.

They also both use encryption, which scrambles the contents of data sent to and from the internet so no third parties can decipher data that they happen to intercept.

So what’s the difference between Tor and a VPN, and which should you use?

In principle,
VPNs emphasize privacy, and Tor emphasizes anonymity. While there’s some overlap between these two concepts, think of it this way: anonymity hides who you are, and privacy hides what you do.

A VPN encrypts your connection and routes it through an intermediary server in another location of the user’s choosing. This server is operated by the VPN provider.

Tor encrypts your internet connection and routes it through a random sequence of servers run by volunteers.

Tor is better than a VPN for the following:

  • Anonymously accessing the web – It’s almost impossible to trace a Tor connection back to the original user. You can safely visit a website without leaving any identifying evidence behind, both on your device and on the website’s server.
  • Accessing the dark web – Tor can be used to access the dark web (a.k.a. the darknet). Most of the dark web is made up of websites only accessible through a Tor connection and not found on Google. It’s often associated with criminal activity, such as black markets, but it’s used for a wealth of legal reasons as well.
  • Untraceable communication – Journalists and their sources, whistleblowers, activists, dissidents, and victims of crime who wish to remain anonymous can use Tor to securely communicate without being tracked or leaving behind a trail of evidence.
Tor by default does not let you choose the location from which you access the web. In addition, most websites can recognize traffic coming from a Tor exit relay, which they can then block accordingly.

Although Tor is very secure, connections have to pass through Tor entry and exit relays. These relays are public, so your ISP and other third parties can know when you’re using Tor. Even if they can’t tell what you’re doing or who you are online, simply using Tor at all could raise suspicions because many people associate it with criminal activity. It’s possible to get around this with a Tor feature called bridges, but that’s a discussion for another article.

A
VPN is better than Tor for these purposes:

  • Unblocking region-locked content – Many streaming services, for example, only allow access to viewers from certain countries. A VPN lets a user “spoof” their location by changing it to any country where the VPN provider operates servers, thereby bypassing region restrictions.
  • Torrenting – VPNs tend to be much faster than Tor, allowing far more bandwidth for downloads.
  • Securing public wifi – If you’re on the go and need to connect to public wifi, a VPN is a more convenient solution. The VPN’s encryption will prevent hackers from snooping and launching man-in-the-middle attacks, but won’t otherwise hamper your browsing experience.
  • Bypassing censorship – If you’re in a country like China where much of the web is blocked by authorities, a VPN lets you access censored content as if you were in another country.
  • Prevent ISP throttling – If your internet service provider is throttling certain types of internet traffic, such as torrents or video streams, then a VPN can hide this activity so it can’t be discriminated against.
  • Accessing blocked content at work or school — If you work or study in a place that restricts access to the web, a VPN can bypass these blocks.
A VPN can hide your IP address, but the VPN provider can still see connection data and traffic passing through its servers. Although most VPN providers say they don’t keep logs of this information, using them for anonymity still requires trusting the VPN provider, whereas Tor uses a trustless system (more on that later).

A VPN won’t get you into the
dark web (although their use is still popular). A Tor connection is required to access .onion websites.
