Basically, you can surf the internet with total anonymity. Tor has been around for years and today millions of people use the privacy software from normal people, the military, journalists, law enforcement, to activists, and others. Previously users were able to load Facebook using Tor, but it didn’t quite load correctly and things didn’t work properly either. Today, the company has created a Tor link (https://facebookcorewwwi.onion) that anyone can use to get access to Facebook securely with end-to-end encryption and anonymously. While Facebook has been proactively implementing different ways to offer secure access to the social network by using HTTPS, and Perfect Forward Secrecy, HSTS, and various other technology. This is a particular good news for those people who are in territories with government censorship or restrict freedom of access to internet content, and it also helps Facebook to expand on such territories.


Facebook’s Tor address works really simple, just download and install the Tor software, and from the Tor-enabled web browser visit https://facebookcorewwwi.onion. I have tested the connection using the Tor URL and it works perfectly, like if you’re visiting the regular site. It’s worth noting that if you try to get access to Facebook using Tor for the first time, you’ll be probably locked out of your account, because technically you’ll be using a different place to get access to your account and Facebook red flags this behavior to prevent unauthorized access. Just be ready to answer the security challenge. Source Facebook | image source Flickr All content on this site is provided with no warranties, express or implied.
