Some antivirus software will pop up malware and/or vulnerability warnings when Tor Browser is launched.
If you downloaded Tor Browser from our main website or used GetTor, and verified it, these are false positives and you have nothing to worry about.
Some antiviruses consider that files that have not been seen by a lot of users as suspicious.
To make sure that the Tor program you download is the one we have created and has not been modified by some attacker, you can verify Tor Browser's signature.
You may also want to whitelist certain processes to prevent antiviruses from blocking access to Tor Browser.
Download Tor Browser to experience real private browsing without tracking, surveillance, or censorship.
To advance human rights and freedoms by creating and deploying free and open source anonymity and privacy technologies, supporting their unrestricted availability and use, and furthering their scientific and popular understanding.
