Infrastructure node for other people's use of Tor network
Tor is composed of a client, at least three middle nodes, and a public endpoint, and the result is that privacy-seeking users bounce their web, ftp, ssh, other traffic around the network, and recipients, observers, and even the relays themselves have difficulty tracking the source of the stream.
This package provides only the middle nodes, which are essential for a robust network, but don't provide an entry point or create an exit point.
This package DOES NOT INCREASE YOUR OWN PRIVACY. If you wish to use Tor yourself, get Tor Browser.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
