Tor Browser and VPNs

To get maximum security, try using a VPN with the Tor browser. A VPN encrypts online activities by hiding your IP address, while Tor passes your internet traffic through encrypted relays, making it more difficult to trace you.

Connect to a VPN, Then Use Tor (Onion Over VPN)

The process of using Tor after connecting to a VPN (also known as “Onion over VPN” or “Tor over VPN”) gives you the complete security protection that the Tor network offers. Moreover, using a VPN on the browser prevents Tor nodes from detecting your IP address.

When you use the Tor browser, your home network may notice and raise concerns about it. However, you don’t need to worry if you’re using a VPN, as Tor will only see the encrypted traffic coming from the VPN server. Plus, Tor over VPN helps you access even the geo-restricted networks of the Tor browser, such as school or organizational systems. Additionally, a VPN provides an additional layer of security for coping with threats or bugs (if any exist) within Tor.
