This package was approved as a trusted package on 2/12/2016.

The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked.

The Tor Browser Bundle lets you use Tor on Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux without needing to install any software. It can run off a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured web browser to protect your anonymity, and is self-contained.

This package puts the Tor Browser Bundle into $env:ChocolateyBinRoot\tor-browser.

To install Tor Browser Bundle, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install tor-browser --version 5.5.2

To upgrade Tor Browser Bundle, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade tor-browser --version 5.5.2
