People have been longing for a secure way to access the dark web without being tracked for a long time now. The internet browsers such as Google, Firefox, Safari and Microsoft Edge have been able to provide their users with a private browsing window mode where their browsing history won’t be saved. Nonetheless, the ISP is still able to track your visited websites, even if you are using these Private Browsing modes.
This was before the Tor Browser was made available across the internet. Being run by a group of volunteers around the world, Tor helped in protecting the identity of the users and providing them with a platform to access the internet anonymously. Usually, users have been using the Tor Browser to create access points to visit the deep web.
How to get Tor Browser?
As mentioned above, Tor Browser ensures that you are able to access the World Wide Web with complete anonymity. You can easily download the Tor Browser from a number of websites across the internet. However, it is advisable that you download it from their official website www.Torproject.org because of safety issues as other could have meddled with the bundle before uploading it to other websites.

For added security, it is advisable that you use both the about:config settings method and the NoScript method simultaneously to be safe.
The Tor Browser is a useful addition to the internet community as it makes it difficult for people, organizations and websites to track your browsing activities. The Tor works on the principle of creating relays through the help of volunteers across the world and distributing your browsing network over these relays to ensure that tracking you is difficult.
