What is Tor over VPN, and how do I use it?
Tor over VPN is another special feature included in our app. It is a privacy-enhancing technology that combines two popular tools: Tor and VPN.
Basically, Tor+VPN = extra safety. VPN does a great job of protecting you, but Tor adds a whole new layer. VPN also hides Tor use and protects you in case the Tor network is hacked. This means that your internet activity is first encrypted by the VPN and then anonymized by Tor, making it more difficult for anyone to track or monitor your online activity.
To turn it on, follow these steps:
- From the menu at the bottom of the home page, go to Mode.
- Under Additional settings you will find the Tor over VPN feature. Turn it on by pressing the nearby switch. When the switch becomes yellow, you've successfully activated Tor over VPN.
