Hi, Are you searching about How to install Tor Browser on UbuntuDDE? If yes, then great you are in the right place. Here, I am going to walk you through the installation process of Tor on UbuntuDDE.

Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against traffic analysis, network surveillance that threatens the form of personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security. It was originally a worldwide network of servers that are developed by the US Navy that allows people to browse the Internet anonymously. Now, it is a non-profit organization whose main objective is the research and development of online privacy tools.

I am assuming that you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple you need to be running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo’ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you through the step by step installation Tor on a UbuntuDDE.
