iphitus Posted April 26, 2008 Report Share Posted April 26, 2008 Yes I downloaded TOR but cannot start it - there are no instructions, hence nothing changes.Could you advise me how to start the program. Why hide I.P.? And Why not? I guard my self against bad unhealthy interests besides It is absolutely normal to hide IP address like concealing any other personal information from the third parties. * You close your door so that nobody can come into your residence. * You hide your mobile phone number if you want so. Millions of people do it. So why not? It's not really. An IP address isn't anything personal or special. Most people will have dynamic IP addresses, changing, so it's certainly not like a mobile phone number. You'll have a dynamic IP too. Why not? Cause you can't! TOR doesn't really hide your IP address. You've still got one, and need one to connect to the internet. You get it from your ISP. So if the government for example ever want's to know your IP address, all they need to do is ask your ISP (depending on countries laws). Easy! TOR is also often blocked. Many sites wont permit TOR connections, and many email servers will flat out reject TOR as TOR is often abused to send spam. So you may find that you won't be able to send your email over tor... starting to defeat the point of setting it up, isnt it. So you can feel fuzzy wuzzy if you want. But it doesn't make a difference. James Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
