Setting up a proxy in the Tor browser

Comments: 0

Tor is a browser designed for secure internet usage, bypassing regional restrictions, and accessing blocked websites. The browser features a unique routing system, allowing users multiple layers of protection for complete anonymization of their online activities. For instance, an internet provider cannot track the websites visited through the Tor browser; it only sees outgoing connections from the Tor network. One additional method to conceal your location and bypass restrictions is by using proxy servers.

Step-by-step proxy setup in Tor Browser

  1. Launch the browser and click on the three horizontal bars in the upper right corner of the window. Then select “Settings”.


  2. In the “Connection” tab at the bottom of the page, find the “Advanced” section and click on “Settings”.


  3. In the new window, check the box for “I use a proxy to connect to the Internet”. Choose the type of protocol from the available options: HTTPS, Socks5, and Socks4. Then fill in the fields “Address”, “Port”, “Username”, and “Password” with the respective proxy details, and click “OK”.


Done, the proxy is configured and ready to use. The TOR browser provides a high level of connection anonymization, but using a proxy server can further enhance this measure.
