    9 === Top Ten Frequently Asked Questions ===
    10 ==== Why is my first IP address in my relay circuit always the same? ====
    11 That is normal Tor behavior! The first relay in your circuit is called an "entry guard" or "guard". It is a fast and stable relay that remains the first one in your circuit for a short time in order to protect against a certain known anonymity-breaking attack. The rest of your circuit changes with every new website you visit, and all together these relays provide the full privacy protections of Tor.

     10
     11==== Why is the first IP address in my relay circuit always the same? ====
     12That is normal Tor behavior! The first relay in your circuit is called an "entry guard" or "guard". It is a fast and stable relay that remains the first one in your circuit for 2-3 months in order to protect against a known anonymity-breaking attack. The rest of your circuit changes with every new website you visit, and all together these relays provide the full privacy protections of Tor. For more information on how guard relays work, see https://blog.torproject.org/blog/improving-tors-anonymity-changing-guard-parameters and http://www-users.cs.umn.edu/~hopper/single_guard.pdf
    1213
    1314==== Why is Tor Browser built from Firefox and not some other browser? ====
    14 Tor Browser is a modified version of Firefox specifically designed for use with Tor. A lot of work has been put into making the Tor Browser, including the use of extra patches to enhance privacy and security. Unfortunately, no other browser today is suitable for the modifications required for these privacy properties. While it is technically possible to use Tor with other browsers, you may open yourself up to potential attacks, information leakage, and so on, so we strongly discourage it.

    1617==== Something is wrong with Tor Browser and it won't connect ====
    17 One of the most common issues that causes connection errors in Tor Browser is an incorrect system clock. Please make sure your system clock and timezone are set accurately. If this doesn't fix the problem, take a look at the ​Troubleshooting page on the ​Tor Browser User Manual.

    1819
    1920==== Can I use Flash player in Tor Browser? ====
    20 You might have noticed that Flash is disabled in Tor Browser. It is STRONGLY recommended that you not enable Flash. In fact, Flash isn't safe to use in any browser — it's a very insecure piece of software that can easily compromise your privacy or serve you malware. Fortunately, most websites, devices, and other browsers are moving away from the use of Flash.

    2122
    2223==== My antivirus/malware protection is blocking me from accessing Tor Browser. ====
    23 Most antivirus or malware protection allows the user to "whitelist" certain processes that allow blocked software to run. Please open your antivirus or malware protection software and look in the settings for a "whitelist" or something similar, and then exclude the following processes:
     24Most antivirus or malware protection allows the user to "whitelist" certain processes that would otherwise be blocked. Please open your antivirus or malware protection software and look in the settings for a "whitelist" or something similar, and then exclude the following processes:
    2425For Windows:
    2526
     
    2829    tor.exe
    2930
    30     obfsproxy.exe (if you use bridges)
     31    obfs4proxy.exe (if you use bridges)
    3132
    3233For OS X
     
    3637    tor.real
    3738
    38     obfsproxy (if you use bridges)
     39    obfs4proxy (if you use bridges)
    3940
    4041Then restart Tor Browser
     
    4445
    4546==== When I use Tor Browser, will anyone be able to tell which websites I visit? ====
    46 Tor Browser protects your browsing activity and history from being seen by anyone — such as Internet Service Providers, advertisers, or government agencies — who might be monitoring your network traffic.
     47Tor Browser prevents people from knowing the websites you visit. Some entities, such as your Internet Service Provider, may be able to see that you're using Tor.
    4748
    4849==== Can I run Tor on an iOS device? ====
    49 There is currently no official version of Tor Browser for iOS. There is, however, an app called Onion Browser, which is open source, uses Tor routing, and is developed by someone who works closely with the Tor Project. You can download it from the ​iOS App Store. Please beware of fake Tor apps in the iOS store!
    50 
    51 ==== The files on my computer have been locked, and someone is demanding I download Tor Browser to pay a ransom for my files! ====
    52 We are so sorry, but you have been infected with malware. The Tor Project did not create this malware. The malware authors are asking you to download Tor Browser presumably to contact them anonymously with the ransom they're demanding from you.
    53 If this is your first introduction to Tor Browser, we understand that you might think we're bad people who enable even worse people. But please consider that our software is used every day for a wide variety of purposes by ​the military, journalists, domestic violence survivors, whistleblowers, law enforcement officers, activists, and many others. Unfortunately, the protection that our software can provide to these groups of people can also be abused by criminals and malware authors. The Tor Project does not endorse, support or condone the use of our software for malicious purposes.
     50There is currently no official version of Tor Browser for iOS. There is an iOS app called Onion Browser, which is open source, uses Tor routing, and is developed by someone who works closely with the Tor Project. However, Apple requires browsers on iOS to use something called Webkit, which prevents Onion Browser from having the same privacy protections as Tor Browser. For more information about Onion Browser and its limitations, see https://blog.torproject.org/blog/tor-heart-onion-browser-and-more-ios-tor

     64
    6665==== My favorite website is blocking access over Tor! ====
    6766Sorry to hear that you can't visit the website you wanted! Sometimes websites will block Tor users because they can't tell the difference between the average Tor user and some malicious or automated traffic. The best success we've had in getting sites to unblock Tor users is getting users to contact the site administrators directly. Something like this might do the trick:
    6867
    69 "Hi! I tried to access your site xyz.com while using Tor Browser and discovered that you don't allow Tor users to access your site. I urge you to reconsider this decision; Tor is used by people all over the world to protect their privacy and fight censorship. By blocking Tor users, you are likely blocking people in repressive countries who want to use a free internet, journalists and researchers who want to protect themselves from discovery, whistleblowers, activists, and ordinary people who want to opt out of invasive third party tracking. Please take a strong stance in favor of digital privacy and internet freedom, and allow Tor users access to xyz.com. Thank you."

    7069
    7170In the case of banks, and other "sensitive" websites, it is also common to see geography-based blocking (if a bank knows you generally access their services from one country, and suddenly you are connecting from an exit relay on the other side of the world, your account may be locked or suspended).

    73 If you are unable to connect to an onion service, please see [#IcannotreachX.onion I cannot reach X.onion!]
     72If you are unable to connect to an onion service, please see [#IcannotreachX.onion I cannot reach X.onion!
     73
    7474==== Our website is blocked by a censor. Can Tor Browser help users access our website? ====
    7575Tor Browser can certainly help people access your website in places where it is blocked. Most of the time, simply downloading the [https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html.en Tor Browser] and then using it to navigate to the blocked site will allow access. In places where there is heavy censorship we have a number of censorship circumvention options available, including [https://www.torproject.org/docs/pluggable-transports.html.en pluggable transports]. For more information, please see the [https://tb-manual.torproject.org/en-US/ Tor Browser User Manual] section on [https://tb-manual.torproject.org/en-US/circumvention.html censorship]
     76
    7677==== Can I use Tor with some other web browser? ====
    77 We strongly recommend against using Tor in any browser other than Tor Browser. Using Tor in another browser can leave you pretty vulnerable; you don't get nearly the same privacy protections that you get when using Tor Browser.
     78Please see the [[#CanIuseTorwithsomeotherwebbrowser|answer]] from our [[#MostFrequentlyAskedQuestions|Most Frequently Asked Questions]] list.
     79
    7880====  My antivirus/malware protection is blocking me from accessing Tor Browser. ====
    79 Most antivirus or malware protection allows the user to "whitelist" certain processes that allow blocked software to run. Please open your antivirus or malware protection software and look in the settings for a "whitelist" or something similar, and then exclude the following processes:
    80 
    81 For Windows:
    82 1. firefox.exe
    83 2. tor.exe
    84 3. obfsproxy.exe (if you use bridges)
    85 
    86 For OS X
    87 1. TorBrowser
    88 2. tor.real
    89 3. obfsproxy (if you use bridges)
    90 
    91 Then restart Tor Browser

     82
    9283==== I downloaded and installed Tor Browser for Windows, but now I can't find it ====
    93 The file you download and run prompts you for a destination. If you don't remember what this destination was, it's most likely your Downloads or Desktop folder. The Windows installer also creates a shortcut for you on your Desktop. If you can't find it in either of those folders, download it again and look for the prompt that asks you to choose a directory to download it in. Choose a directory location that you'll remember easily, and once the download finishes you should see a Tor Browser folder there.
     84The file you download and run prompts you for a destination. If you don't remember what this destination was, it's most likely your Downloads or Desktop folder. The default setting in the Windows installer also creates a shortcut for you on your Desktop, though be aware that you may have accidentally unticked the option to create a shortcut. If you can't find it in either of those folders, download it again and look for the prompt that asks you to choose a directory to download it in. Choose a directory location that you'll remember easily, and once the download finishes you should see a Tor Browser folder there.
     85
    9486==== Can I use Flash player in Tor Browser? ====
    95 You might have noticed that Flash is disabled in Tor Browser. It is STRONGLY not recommended that you not enable Flash. In fact, Flash isn't safe to use in any browser — it's a very insecure piece of software that can easily compromise your privacy or serve you malware. Fortunately, most websites, devices, and other browsers are moving away from the use of Flash.
     87Please see the [[#CanIuseFlashplayerinTorBrowser|answer]] from our [[#MostFrequentlyAskedQuestions|Most Frequently Asked Questions]] list.
     88
    9689==== Does using Tor Browser protect other applications on my computer? ====
    97 Only Tor Browser's traffic will be routed over the Tor network. Any other applications on your system (including other browsers) will not have their connections routed over the Tor network, and will not be protected.
     90Only Tor Browser's traffic will be routed over the Tor network. Any other application on your system (including other browsers) will not have their connections routed over the Tor network, and will not be protected. They need to get configured separately to use Tor.
    9891
    9992If you need to be sure that all traffic will go through the Tor network, you might want to look at the [https://tails.boum.org Tails live system].
    100 ==== Can I install a new add-on or extension in Tor Browser, like AdBlock Plus or uBlock Origin? ====
     93
     94==== Should I install a new add-on or extension in Tor Browser, like AdBlock Plus or uBlock Origin? ====
    10195It's strongly discouraged to install new add-ons in Tor Browser, because they can compromise both your privacy and your security. Plus, Tor Browser already comes installed with two add-ons —  HTTPS Everywhere and NoScript — which give you a lot of added protection.
    102 ==== Can I pick which country I'm exiting from? ==== *FLAGGED FOR REVIEW*
    103 Modifying the way that Tor creates its circuits is strongly discouraged. You get the best security that Tor can provide when you leave the route selection to Tor; overriding the entry / exit nodes can compromise your anonymity.
     96
     97==== Can I pick which country I'm exiting from? ====
     98Modifying the way that Tor creates its circuits is strongly discouraged. You get the best security that Tor can provide when you leave the route selection to Tor; overriding the entry / exit nodes can compromise your anonymity. If the outcome you want is simply to be able to access resources that are only available in one country, you may want to consider using a VPN instead of using Tor. Please note that VPNs do not have the same privacy properties as Tor, but they will help solve some geolocation restriction issues.
     99
    104100==== Is there support for *BSD? ====
    105 Sorry, but there is currently no official support for running Tor Browser on *BSD.
     101Sorry, but there is currently no official support for running Tor Browser on *BSD. There is something called the TorBSD project, but their Tor Browser is out of date and cannot be used safely.
     102
     103
    106104==== Where can I get bridges? ====
    107105Some bridges are built in to Tor Browser, and you can use those bridges by choosing "configure" (then following the prompts) in the Tor Launcher window that pops up when you open Tor Browser for the first time. If you need other bridges, you can get them at our [https://bridges.torproject.org Bridges website]. For more information about bridges, see the [https://tb-manual.torproject.org/en-US/bridges.html Tor Browser manual].
     106
    108107==== Something is wrong with Tor Browser and it won't connect ====
    109 One of the most common issues that causes connection errors in Tor Browser is an incorrect system clock. Please make sure your system clock and timezone are set accurately. If this doesn't fix the problem, take a look at the [https://tb-manual.torproject.org/en-US/troubleshooting.html Troubleshooting] page on the [https://tb-manual.torproject.org/en-US/ Tor Browser User Manual].
     108Please see the [[#SomethingiswrongwithTorBrowseranditwontconnect|answer]] from our [[#MostFrequentlyAskedQuestions|Most Frequently Asked Questions]] list.
     109
     110
    110111==== How do I view Tor Browser message log? ====
    111112Click the button labelled “Copy Tor Log To Clipboard” that appears in the dialog window when Tor Browser is first connecting to the network.
     
    115116If Tor Browser is already open, click on the Torbutton icon (the small green onion at the top-left of the screen), then “Open Network
    116117Settings”, then “Copy Tor Log To Clipboard”
    117 ==== Why is Tor Browser slower than my other browsers? ====
    118 Using Tor Browser can sometimes be slower than other browsers. The difference in speed is due to your traffic being routed through three (or more, if using onion services) relays around the world before going to your destination. The Tor network has over a million daily users, and just over 6000 relays to route all of their traffic. The geographical distance and the load on each server make Tor a bit slower than what you may be used to. You can help improve the speed of the network by running your own relay, or encouraging others to do so.
     118
     119==== Is Tor Browser slower than other browsers? ====
     120Using Tor Browser can sometimes be slower than other browsers. The Tor network has over a million daily users, and just over 6000 relays to route all of their traffic, and the load on each server can sometimes cause a bit of latency. You can help improve the speed of the network by running your own relay, or encouraging others to do so. That said, Tor is much faster than it used to be and you may not actually notice any change in speed from other browsers.
     121
    119122==== Is it safe to run Tor Browser and another browser at the same time? ====
    120123If you run Tor Browser and another browser at the same time, it won't have any affect on Tor's performance or privacy properties. However, be aware that your other browser is not keeping your activity private, and you may forget and accidentally use that nonprivate browser to do something that you intended to do in Tor Browser.
     124
    121125==== Can I download Tor Browser for ChromeOS? ====
    122126Unfortunately, we don't have a version of Tor Browser that works for ChromeOS yet.
     127
    123128==== I'm having a problem with DuckDuckGo. ====
    124129Please see the [https://duck.co/help DuckDuckGo support portal]. If you believe this is a Tor Browser issue, please report it on our [https://trac.torproject.org bug tracker].
    125 ==== I'm having a problem with NoScript. ====
     130
     131==== I'm having a problem with NoScript ====
    126132Please see the [https://noscript.net/faq NoScript FAQ]. If you believe this is a Tor Browser issue, please report it on our [https://trac.torproject.org bug tracker].

    127134==== I'm having a problem with HTTPSEverywhere ====
    128135Please see the [https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere/faq HTTPS-Everywhere FAQ]. If you believe this is a Tor Browser issue, please report it on our [https://trac.torproject.org bug tracker].
     136
    129137==== How do I update Tor Browser? ====
    130 Tor Browser will prompt you to update the software once a new version has been released: the Torbutton icon (the little green onion in the top left corner of the browser) will display a yellow triangle, and you may see a written update indicator when Tor Browser opens. You can update either automatically or manually.

    137144Removing Tor Browser from your system is simple:
    138145
    139 1. Locate your Tor Browser folder. The default location on Windows is the Desktop; on Mac OS X it is the Applications folder. On Linux, there is no default location, however the folder will be named "tor-browser_en-US" if you are running the English Tor Browser.
    140 2. Delete the Tor Browser folder.
     1461. Locate your Tor Browser folder or application. The default location on Windows is the Desktop; on macOS it is the Applications folder (on macOS, you have to move it into the Applications folder when you complete the installation process). On Linux, there is no default location, however the folder will be named "tor-browser_en-US" if you are running the English Tor Browser.
     1472. Delete the Tor Browser folder or application.
    1411483. Empty your Trash
    142149
    143150Note that your operating system’s standard “Uninstall” utility is not used.
     151
    144152==== Is there a way to change the IP address that Tor Browser assigns me for a particular site? ====
    145153Tor Browser has two ways to change your relay circuit — “New Identity” and “New Tor Circuit for this Site". Both options are located in the Torbutton (little green onion) menu.
    146154
    147155* New Identity
    148 This option is useful if you want to prevent your subsequent browser activity from being linkable to what you were doing before. Selecting it will close all your open tabs and windows, clear all private information such as cookies and browsing history, and use new Tor circuits for all connections. Tor Browser will warn you that all activity and downloads will be stopped, so take this into account before clicking “New Identity”.

    150158* New Tor Circuit for this Site
     
    154162
    155163==== A website (bank, email provider, etc..) locks me out whenever I use Tor, what can I do? ====
    156 Tor Browser often makes your connection appear as though it is coming from an entirely different part of the world. Some websites, such as banks or email providers, might interpret this as a sign that your account has been compromised, and lock you out. The only way to resolve this is by following the site’s recommended procedure for account recovery, or contacting the operators and explaining the situation.
    157 ==== I cannot reach X.onion! ====
    158 If you cannot reach the onion service you require, make sure that you have entered the 16-character onion address correctly: even a small mistake will stop Tor Browser from being able to reach the site. If you are still unable to connect to the onion service, please try again later. There may be a temporary connection issue, or the site operators may have allowed it to go offline without warning.
    159 
    160 You can also ensure that you're able to access other onion services by connecting to DuckDuckGo's [http://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/ Onion Service].
     164Tor Browser often makes your connection appear as though it is coming from an entirely different part of the world. Some websites, such as banks or email providers, might interpret this as a sign that your account has been compromised, and lock you out. The only way to resolve this is by following the site’s recommended procedure for account recovery, or contacting the operators and explaining the situation. You may be able to avoid this scenario if your provider offers 2-factor authentication, which is a much better security option than IP-based reputations. Contact your provider and ask them if they provide 2FA.
     165
    161166==== Which platforms is Tor Browser available for? ====
    162167Tor Browser is currently available on Windows, Linux and OSX. For Android, The Guardian Project maintains the Tor-powered apps Orbot and Orfox. Unfortunately, there is no official version of Tor for iOS yet.
     168
    163169==== Can I set Tor Browser as my default browser? ====
    164 There is currently no supported method for setting Tor Browser as your default browser.
     170There is currently no supported method for setting Tor Browser as your default browser. The Tor Browser works hard to isolate itself from the rest of your system, and the steps for making it the default browser are unreliable. This means sometimes a website would load in the Tor Browser, and sometimes it would load in another browser, this type of behavior can be dangerous and anonymity-breaking.
     171
    165172==== Does running Tor Browser make me a relay? ====
    166 Running Tor Browser does not make you act as a relay in the network. This means that your computer will not be used to route traffic for others.
     173Running Tor Browser does not make you act as a relay in the network. This means that your computer will not be used to route traffic for others. If you'd like to become a relay, please see our [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/org/teams/CommunityTeam/Support#Operator operator documents].
     174
    167175==== Why does Tor Browser ship with Javascript enabled? ====
    168176We configure NoScript to allow JavaScript by default in Tor Browser because many websites will not work with JavaScript disabled. Most users would give up on Tor entirely if we disabled Javascript by default because it would cause so many problems for them.

    170 There's a security vs usability tradeoff here. On the one hand, we should leave JavaScript enabled by default so websites work the way users expect. On the other hand, we should disable JavaScript by default to better protect against browser vulnerabilities (not just a theoretical concern!). But there's a third issue: websites can easily determine whether you have allowed JavaScript for them, and if you disable JavaScript by default but then allow a few websites to run scripts (the way most people use NoScript), then your choice of whitelisted websites acts as a sort of cookie that makes you recognizable (and distinguishable), thus harming your anonymity.

    172 Ultimately, we want to make Tor Browser as secure as possible while also making it usable for the majority of people, so for now, that means leaving Javascript enabled. You can still choose to turn it off by changing your security settings under the Torbutton.
     178Ultimately, we want to make Tor Browser as secure as possible while also making it usable for the majority of people, so for now, that means leaving Javascript enabled by default. For users who want to have Javascript disabled on all HTTP sites by default, we recommend changing your Tor Browser's security slider (in the Tor Browser Onion menu under "Security Settings"). The low/default setting allows Javascript, but the medium and high levels both block Javascript on HTTP sites.

    173180==== Can you get rid of all the captchas? ====
    174181Unfortunately, some websites deliver CAPTCHAS to Tor users, and we are not able to remove CAPTCHAs from websites. The best thing to do in these cases is to contact the website owners, and inform them that their CAPTCHAs are preventing users such as yourself from using their services.

    175183==== Can I run multiple instances of Tor Browser? ====
    176 Running multiple instances of Tor Browser is not generally recommended, and may not work as anticipated on many platforms.

    198206==== Will my network admin be able to tell I'm using Tor Browser? ====
    199207When using Tor / Tor Browser, we do not make the guarantee that no one will be able to determine you are using Tor. Rather, the goal is that no one will know what you are using Tor for. Using pluggable transports can make
    200208identifying Tor traffic more difficult, but not impossible.

    201210==== Does Tor Browser use a different circuit for each website? ====
    202 In Tor Browser, every domain gets it's own circuit. [https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser/design/#identifier-linkability The Design and Implementation of Tor Browser] document has further details regarding this issue.

    203213==== Why did my search engine switch to DuckDuckGo? ====
    204214With the release of Tor Browser 6.0.6, we switched to DuckDuckGo as the primary search engine. For a while now, Disconnect has had no access to Google search results which we used in Tor Browser. Disconnect being more of a meta search engine which allows users to choose between different search providers fell back to delivering Bing search results which were basically unacceptable quality-wise.

    205216==== Why does my Tor Browser say something about Firefox not working? ====
    206 Tor Browser is built using Firefox ESR, so errors regarding Firefox may occur. Please be sure no other instance of Tor Browser is already running, and that you have extracted Tor Browser in a location that your user has the correct permissions for. If you are running an anti-virus, please see [My antivirus/malware protection is blocking me from accessing Tor Browser], it is common for anti-virus / anti-malware software to cause this type of issue.
