How To Install Tor Browser 3.6.2 On Ubuntu 14.04

Tor Browser is an internet browser based on Mozilla Firefox configured to protect the users’ anonimity, via Tor and Vidalia. The bundle also includes 3 Firefox extensions: Torbutton, NoScript and HTTPS-Everywhere.






The Tor Browser anonymizes the traffic and encrypts everything everything in the Tor network. Via the HTTPS-Everywhere extension, it also encrypts the traffic between the Tor network and the final destination.


To install TOR just run the following Commands via your systems Terminal.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/tor-browser

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install tor-browser

That's it.

    1. Mark I had no problems myself. I tried to create the problem and what I found was if I did not correctly copy the commands and place them in the terminal I would get the "E: unable to locate package tor-browser". The only thing I can say is try again and see if that helps.

  8. I am just now installing tor-browser on the latest version of Ubuntu. Which was made easy by Henson so thank you for that. Might there be a newer version that can be installed with the proper updates? I cross referenced these easy instructions with tors site and they mentioned constant updates along with some very complicated steps to take as far as downloading tor-browser in its entiret. Thanks again in advance.
