Hello Linux Geeksters.

In this article I will show you how to install the Tor Browser on Debian Systems.

As you know, Tor is a free software that hides your internet data, helping you to protect against a form of network surveillance that threatens your own internet privacy.

But remember. Nothing on Internet is anonymous. If you do something stupid, no proxy can save your ass.

Let’s start doing the preferable configurations:

Create /opt/torbundle directory:

$ sudo mkdir /opt/torbundle

Set ownership on /opt/torbundle:

$ sudo chown $USER:$USER /opt/torbundle

Replace $USER with your username.

Download Torbrowser:

$ wget

Extract the archive:

$ tar xvf tor-browser-gnu-linux-x86_64-2.3.25-6-dev-en-US.tar.gz

Create this alias, for the tor browser:

$ echo "alias torbrowser='/opt/torbundle/tor-browser_en-US/./start-tor-browser'" >> ~/.bashrc

Reload the ~/.bashrc:

$ source ~/.bashrc

To start the torbrowser, do this:

$ torbrowser
