    Default TOR Browser

    I was asked about the TOR browser which I guess is onion routing. Anyone have an opinion on this?

    TOR is a great way to ensure your Internet access is unfiltered. Untangle by default attempts to prevent TOR from functioning because it destroys Untangle's ability to do anything.

    Thanks. What about outside of Untangle?

    To be clearer, with Untangle you can block Tor, but you don't have to.

    Given recent events, I suspect more people will be looking into Tor.
    I've never used it, but my worry would always be about performance as the network relies on volunteer endpoints.
    There are many paid VPN services as an alternative depending on your price sensitivity.

    This is actually coming from a client for his home use. I never heard of it until today. He just has a basic ASUS router now. I'm wondering what TOR would accomplish for him.

    There are TOR routers... you could put Untangle behind one physically, or daisy chain them virtually, then you'd have the slowness and pseudo anonymity of TOR, and the security of Untangle.
