❄️ 🚨 Snowflake operators, your help is needed!

Make sure you're running the most recent version of Snowflake. If you don't update, your Snowflake will stop working in the near future.

This includes people running the web extension AND the standalone proxy.

Dear relay operators,

Tor 0.4.6.x reached end of life and relays running that version will soon be rejected from the Tor network. Please upgrade your relay as soon as possible.

Thank you for your help powering Tor.

We need your help to smash Tor bugs. 👾 🔨

🟣 HTTPS-Everywhere has led a long career protecting our users. Now, HTTPS is actually everywhere. Firefox calls this feature HTTPS-Only Mode. Starting in Tor Browser 11.5, HTTPS-Only Mode is enabled by default for desktop, & HTTPS-Everywhere will not be bundled with Tor Browser.

🟣 Plus, we've introduced a new feature called bridge cards. Before Tor Browser 11.5, bridges used to be almost invisible, even when configured. Now, your saved bridges appear in a handy stack of bridge cards—including new options for sharing bridges too.

🟣 We've also redesigned Tor Network settings for users who prefer to configure their connection manually. This includes a brand new name—Connection settings—connection statuses, and streamlined UX for selecting a bridge.
