Tor for Mac description
Tor is a toolset for a wide range of organizations and people who want to improve their safety and security on the Internet.

Using Tor can help you anonymize web browsing and publishing, instant messaging, IRC, SSH, and more. Tor also provides a platform on which software developers can build new applications with built-in anonymity, safety, and privacy features.

By default, Tor is configured to run at startup. If you do not want Tor to run on startup, you can disable this by selecting "Customize" in the Installer, and then un-checking the "Tor Startup Script" box. Be sure to leave the other boxes checked.

If everything works, your IP address should have changed.. Tor: anonymity online. Publisher of Tor for Mac, Author of Tor for Mac 0.2.2.8 Alpha.
