Tor2web: browse the anonymous internet

Tor is a software project that lets you anonymously browse the Internet. Tor2web is a project to let Internet users access anonymous servers.

Here's how it works: Imagine you've got something that you need to publish anonymously, like the Federalist Papers or leaked video from a whistleblower. You wisely protect your anonymity using a Tor hidden service. Then people access those documents through Tor2web; that way anyone with a Web browser can see them.

Getting started

Whenever you see a URL like http://duskgytldkxiuqc6.onion/, that's a Tor hidden Web service. Just replace .onion with to use the Tor2web proxy network. Example:

This connects you with Tor2web, which then talks to the hidden service via Tor and relays the response back to you.

WARNING: Tor2web only protects publishers, not readers. As a reader installing Tor will give you much greater anonymity, confidentiality, and authentication than using Tor2web. Using Tor2web trades off security for convenience and usability.
