-- Casey Shorr, CEO of Printfection

Tor's tools and technologies are already used by millions of people to protect their activities online. These users include journalists and human rights workers in politically rigid countries communicating with whistleblowers and dissidents. Law enforcement officers on Internet sting operations stay anonymous with Tor, as do people wanting to post socially sensitive information in chat rooms, like rape or abuse survivors and those with illnesses.  The Tor network also provides protection for people looking for another layer of privacy from the millions of websites and ISPs bent on collecting private information and tracking their moves online.

Tor welcomes your support through purchasing of Tor branded items and through the consistent donations of thousands of individuals through our various methods of donation.

ABOUT THE TOR PROJECT

Based in Walpole, MA, The Tor Project develops free and open-source software that provides online anonymity to the everyday Internet user. Tor was born out of a collaboration with the U.S. Naval Research Lab starting in 2001, and it became an official U.S. 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2006. The Tor Project now works with many individuals, NGOs, law enforcement agencies, and businesses globally to help them protect their anonymity online.

In addition to its efforts developing and maintaining the Tor anonymity software and the Tor network, The Tor Project also helps to lead the research community in understanding how to build and measure scalable and secure anonymity networks. The Tor developers publish several new research papers each year in major academic security conferences, and just about every major security conference these days includes a Tor-related paper. Tor is a project-funded organization with eight full-time staff.
