Install Tor on Ubuntu

Tor is a highly anonymous proxy network. Tor is used by sites in dark web as it is almost impossible to find who owns a web site when it is hidden using tor.

To install tor on Ubuntu/Debian, run

apt install -y tor

This will start a sock5 proxy server on your PC on port 9050.

tor proxy

To check if proxy is working, run

root@ok-vm:~# curl --socks5

You can also use “torify”, that work like proxychains.

root@ok-vm:~# torify curl

You can configure your browser to use sock5 proxy server running on on port 9050.

If you are using applications that do not support proxy, then you can use torify or proxychains, for example.

torify google-chrome
