After nearly a year since releasing the alpha version of Tor Browser on Android, it's time to sunset Orfox 🌇

Thanks to everyone who gave to the this month 💚💜

Documentation is critical to the health of projects, but it is often overlooked. We heard from a number of you who wanted to help with ours, and next week is your chance.

Join our DocsHackathon Monday 2 September to Friday 6 September. We’ll be rewarding the top 3 contributors with prizes at the end of the week.

11 days remain to contribute to our Bug Smash Fund

You'll help us respond quickly to bugs, improve test coverage, and keep up with Firefox ESRs. These are essential, but sometimes we have to divert developer attention away from grant-funded projects and use unrestricted funds to do them. That's why we need your help.

Tails, a live operating system relying on Tor that helps you to use the internet anonymously and circumvent censorship almost anywhere you go and on any computer, turns 10 today.

Happy birthday, Tails 🎂…/tor-…/2

If you use Firefox or Chrome, we developed an easy way you can help people bypass censorship.

Our Snowflake extension turns your browser into a proxy that connects Tor users in censored regions to the Tor network.

Come see us in the vendor room at to pick up your onion badge, available by donation. Thanks to see_ess for making these happen.

Code & manual:


Next Friday at , Roger Dingledine will get you up to speed on the ways governments have tried to block Tor, walk through our upcoming steps to stay ahead, and give you some new—easier—ways that let you help censored users reach the internet safely.

Throughout the month of August, every donation to Tor will be earmarked for smashing bugs 👾

This work is critical to keeping Tor strong.

Your donation can help us be prepared for what bugs may come, and in turn, we can better help millions of people around the world stay safe online and keep an entire ecosystem of tools healthy:
