HTTPS

The short answer is: Yes, you can browse normal HTTPS Sites using Tor.

HTTPS Connections are used to secure communications over computer networks. You can read more about HTTPS here Tor Browser has the HTTPS Everywhere plugin which automatically switches thousands of sites from unencrypted "HTTP" to more private "HTTPS".

Tor impedisce agli spioni di conoscere quali siti internet hai visitato. Tuttavia, le informazioni inviate sui internet senza crittografia utilizzando il semplice HTTP possono essere intercettate dagli operatori degli exit relay o da qualcuno che osservi il traffico tra il tuo exit relay e il tuo sito di destinazione. Se il sito che stai visitando utilizza HTTPS, allora il traffico in uscita dal tuo exit relay sarà crittografato, e non sarà visibile agli spioni.

This visualization shows what information is visible to eavesdroppers with and without Tor Browser and HTTPS encryption.

The following visualization shows what information is visible to eavesdroppers with and without Tor Browser and HTTPS encryption:

  • Click the “Tor” button to see what data is visible to observers when you're using Tor. The button will turn green to indicate that Tor is on.
  • Click the “HTTPS” button to see what data is visible to observers when you're using HTTPS. The button will turn green to indicate that HTTPS is on.
  • When both buttons are green, you see the data that is visible to observers when you are using both tools.
  • When both buttons are grey, you see the data that is visible to observers when you don't use either tool.
