How safe is TOR?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Can your IP address be tracked through it? For example, you're living in North Korea and make a forum post on a North Korean forum about some North Korean things that North Korean government finds offensive, can they track it and force your ISP to reveal them the identity of the owner of the said IP address?

TOR is a black box. It scramble everything that passes through it (simplification ) so your ISP cannot immediately tell what you are requesting.

But just to be on the safe side, don't do anything stupid and you won't have any problems

If you are creating posts on terrorism and explosives and the like, then they WILL find you regardless of what counter measures you take. The government have access to software that end users like yourself cannot even begin to imagine so again, don't do anything silly

Yes, you can be tracked through it. But the tracking part isnt for everyday buddys.

No you cannot, but it is also slow as hell.

@ MooMoo, how do you think you can be tracked through it?

You go through a bunch of other pcs selected at random, good luck tracing that back

Oh for Christ's sake, why does everything always have to do something with terrorism?!
It's just that I'm living in Finland, it's all fine and dandy, but once you download an illegal copy of RoboCop 2 one time too many you'll have overexcited police officers knocking on your door.

if it's on the internet, it's not anonymous. especially not if you log in to a forum etc (for example, they could just get the IP of the place you registered at)

i wasn't implying anything by that

im just saying, if you're downloading games and movies, TOR will stop you getting tracked, but your downloads will be VERY slow

Probably because you mentioned North Korea and Tor in the same post

Until some facts are found that it doesn't, TOR is unbreakable
