What is Privoxy?

Privoxy is a non-caching web proxy with advanced filtering capabilities for enhancing privacy, modifying web page data and HTTP headers, controlling access, and removing ads and other obnoxious Internet junk. Privoxy has a flexible configuration and can be customized to suit individual needs and tastes. It has application for both stand-alone systems and multi-user networks.

You can find more about Privoxy at Privoxy Home Page.

If you want to hide your IP address from most adversaries, you should consider chaining Privoxy with Tor. The configuration details can be found in How do I use Privoxy together with Tor section just below.

From Privoxy FAQ 4.7.

Before you use TorghostNG

  • For the goodness of Tor network, BitTorrent traffic will be blocked by iptables. Although you can bypass it with some tweaks with your torrent client 😥. It's difficult to completely block all torrent traffic.
  • For security reason, TorghostNG will disable IPv6 to prevent IPv6 leaks (it happened to me lmao).

How to update TorghostNG

Open Terminal and type

torghostng -u
with sudo to update TorghostNG, but it will download new TorghostNG to
, because you're running it as root. If you don't like that, you can type
git pull -f
sudo python3

Notes before you use Tor

Tor can't help you completely anonymous, just almost: * Tor’s Biggest Threat – Correlation Attack * Is Tor Broken? How the NSA Is Working to De-Anonymize You When Browsing the Deep Web * Use Traffic Analysis to Defeat TOR * ...

It's recommended that you should use NoScript before before surfing the web with Tor. NoScript shall block JavaScript/Java/Flash scripts on websites to make sure they won't reveal your real identify.

And please

  • Don't spam or perform DoS attacks with Tor. It's not effective, you will only make Tor get hated and waste Tor's money.
  • Don't torrent over Tor. If you want to keep anonymous while torrenting, use a no-logs VPN please.

Bittorrent over Tor isn't a good idea

Not anonymous: attack reveals BitTorrent users on Tor network

Don't torrent over Tor, please
