Tracking, surveillance, and censorship are widespread online, but Tor tools, including Tor Browser and onion services, empower you to take back the internet.
The original vision of the internet was a free and open space where you could share resources and communicate freely, a decentralized space where your identity didn’t matter. When powerful entities recognized that huge profits could be made online, the technology that made up the internet was co-opted to form a centralized, traceable, ‘self-centered,’ system. The decentralized vision of the internet faded from the consciousness of the general public. In this session, we’ll look at what happened to the internet to make Tor necessary and how Tor can help you take back your privacy and freedom online.
