- How much can I trust Tor? 5 answers
OK, I came across tor browser couple of years ago. Then I have been using tor browser some some reason or another. Normally I use Firefox or Google chrome but if I want to hide my IP then I use tor.
Recently I came across deep web. I had previously knowledge about deep web but now I thought of doing some research on it. You can access many deep websites through tor. Which is in many cases useful.
So, many people with tor browser knowledge, they know that the Internet traffic is routed through tor’s network and goes through several randomly selected relays before exiting the Tor network. The last Tor node, where the traffic leaves the Tor network and enters the open Internet, can be monitored.
Now my question comes here. When the exit nodes can be monitored, Can it also be monitored from whom the request came from? Yes, I have read in the internet it cannot be monitored but also I have read somewhere that the actual IP address and the request was monitored. I really want to know if it is really really safe to use tor browser in-terms of anonymity. If I want to use deep web, will tor browser will really really help me. Can I be really safe without any authority or government agency like NSA spying on me?
