Notes before you use Tor

Tor can’t help you completely anonymous, just almost:

It’s recommended that you should use NoScript before before surfing the web with Tor.

The NoScript extension is free, open source add-on allows JavaScript, Java, Flash and other plugins to be executed only by trusted web sites of your choice (e.g. your online bank).

And please

  • Don’t spam or perform DoS attacks with Tor. It’s not effective, you will only make Tor get hated and waste Tor’s money.
  • Don’t torrent over Tor. If you want to keep anonymous while torrenting, use a no-logs VPN please.

Rewritten from TorghostNG (currently deleted ?) using Go.

Was tested on Arch Linux.
