List Of Services Blocking Tor

The Tor community maintains the following three lists as part of the DontBlockMe project.

List Of RBL Lists

A subproject to routinely search for and clear Tor relay nodes from these sort of lists.

The List

List Of Software Used To Block Tor

A listing of the software that has been identified as being used by the services listed below. This can present another avenue to accomplish the goals of the DontBlockMe project. The format is:

  • Software link - How to identify it when used by a service

The List

List Of Services Blocking Tor

Services should be listed if:

  • They display a written policy that prohibits "Tor" specifically by name.
  • They display a written policy prohibiting proxies, VPN's, open/free networks, travelers, etc.
  • The text of an error message indicates "Tor", anonymous proxies, etc.
  • After testing with "signal NEWNYM / New Identity / MAPADDRESS", access and/or full use via Tor is found to be consistently problematic (roughly 80% or more of those tests fail).

The list is formatted in alphabetical service groupings as follows:

Type of Service

Tor Open:

  • List up to five (5) leading counterexamples of competing services that happen to not block Tor (use WeSupportTor for explicit Tor supporters). Then list all the services of that type that do block Tor. "Tor Open/Blocked" headings may be omitted until there is at least one counterexample.

Tor Blocked:

  • url of service - nature of block: complete, account creation, read-only, random breakage, etc.

The List

Advertising / Business / Commercial

Banking / Finance

Blogs (by engine)

Computing / Technical


Forums / Imageboards


Government services / Publicly funded resources


IRC/SIP/XMPP / non-web comms network services and messaging

IRC see Blocking IRC.

  • Skype - Login attempts via a Tor exit node are rejected (since 2013, see list and blog): load icon spins forever; experience shows it can take ~6 weeks for a new exit node to be blacklisted

Mail services

News Media

Search engines

Shopping / Product research

Social Networking

Communities / Friends / Interests
  • - Periodic process may delete after a while (hour to days) if geoIP does not match profile location, Deletes for other unknown reasons. Try contacting csr@… and post any results to tor-talk.
  • - You need to pass image test before login and after successful login email validation is required.

The "Formerly Listed" List

These were formerly listed in the above list, but someone (you) found that they now seem to work "more often than not" and thus moved them here adding the move date (do not remove the original reason for listing). Once listed here, other readers will check them from time to time. If they are still blocking "more often than not", feel free to move them back into the lists above. If they've been on this list for over a year, feel free to remove them as apparently having been a temporary IP block, not a complete class based (Tor/VPN/Proxy) block. Format:

  • YYYY-MM-DD listed - URI - original reason, delisting notes
