January 2017 PLUG Meeting: VPN & TOR: THIS MONDAY

TOR Project Logo

This coming Monday...

VPN & TOR

Jason Wallwork will be introducing the basics of using a VPN client or a Tor client within the Tails linux distribution. Using a VPN and/or a Tor client is a powerful way of protecting your privacy and anonymity online. Tails is a live Linux distribution that includes the TOR client and leaves no traces behind after you use it on a computer. However, you can easily download and install Tor inside any Linux distribution (or Windows or Mac).
