Torpark- Alters Computer’s IP Address To Make Web Browsing Anonymous

A worldwide team of computer safety specialists and civil right individuals, known as Hacktivismo, has recently issued Torpark. It is a variation of the mobile Firefox browser with Tor integrated within it. Torpark is designed for application on handy media like a USB flash drive; however, it can also be applied on all hard disk drives. But the browser processes very leisurely, but the tweaks/hacks can operate TorPark quicker.

The Torpark browser alters a PC's Internet Protocol address continually after few minutes. IP addresses are unique numbers allotted to computers on the computer network. The number can be utilized with other information to locate the user and several sites monitor IP addresses.

"We dwell in a period where acquisition technologies are selecting and comparing every part of our online world," stated the creator of Hacktivismo, Oxblood Ruffin. "Torpark carries on Hacktivismo's allegiance towards extending the right of privacy on the net also. Moreover, the finest feature is that it's free. Nobody needs to pay for fundamental civil rights, particularly the privacy rights."

The Torpark web browser utilizes encoding to convey information via The Onion Router; a global network of computers called "TOR"--established to transmit information to each other in a haphazard, confused manner.

Net traffic, like site solicitations, contains data about its origin and destination. However, that's coherent utilizing TOR, duly sanctioned through the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and is difficult to track back to the actual origin.

Slow browsing is the only disadvantage with Torpark when compared to other web browsers via the same link.

Information moving amongst the client and the TOR link is encoded, but the information traveling amid the TOR network and sites is decoded. Thus, the user mustn't offer his/her access code or password on sites that do not request for authorization before start of session.

Hence, while using Torpark, you reinstall Firefox frequently, but never the real anti-censorship application. Just click twice on the Torpark image and you can browse freely.
