    Re: Is TOR safe to use?

    I only somewhat recently learned about TOR. Since I needed to reinstall Ubuntu anyway, I downloaded the .tar TOR bundle. Opened it up and just had a quick peak around and then did the re-install.
    I know it's not illegal to use, but it could draw attention to you. At least thats what I think. I'd like to check it out more though and see what it's about. I'll probably make a ubuntu live-usb and download the bundle to there and use it off the USB stick.
    I'd set up a proxy server for home and use public networks.

    Not sure how good TOR's search engine is, but you could use DuckDuckGo which is HTTPS.

    Well the whole point of tor is that you are anonymous while using it, so unless it's flawed on some technical level I don't see how anyone would know that you're using it in the first place.
    Please mark your thread as solved if you get a satisfactory solution to your problem.
