We're excited to share our latest annual report with you!

In the last year, Tor has mobilized against censorship, doubled the number of bridges on the network, & worked hard to make Tor faster.

Read about what you made possible in internet freedom 🔽


"Сеть Tor — мощный и простой в использовании инструмент обеспечения анонимности. Благодаря ему правозащитники в странах с репрессивным режимом могут сообщать о нарушениях прав человека."


Arti 0.5.0 is here! Arti is our ongoing project to create an embeddable Tor client in Rust. This release adds cryptographic acceleration, a useful set of top-level build features, reachable-address filtering, & detection for failed directory downloads.


If some people want to contribute to @torproject but don't know where to start, this week is hackweek ! This means peoples will work on smaller projects, some of which are technical, but some of which aren't, like a project about making comics that draw analogies on Tor.

🎊 HUGE news worth celebrating!🎊

The Russian block on our website (torproject.org) has been successfully lifted for now, thanks to tireless work from our legal team in Russia, Roskomsvoboda.


In 2020 & 2021, the FBI queried the data of more than 3 million people in the U.S. without a warrant in "incidental" capture of conversations through Section 702. With the potential renewal of Section 702 on the horizon, it's time to close this backdoor.


We are hiring two Software Engineers for our Applications Team! You'll work on Tor Browser and future applications and help millions of people circumvent censorship and protect their privacy. All details here: torproject.org/about/jobs/soft

A few minutes of testing and reporting bugs helps us release a better version of Tor Browser, which helps everyone who needs Tor!
You can get started right now. Here's how to volunteer as a Tor Browser alpha tester:

Every release of Tor Browser brings new features: many help people circumvent censorship to Tor, better protect their privacy, or are designed to make Tor easier to use.
These new features can introduce bugs, and we need your help to find and squash them. 🐛
