Step 3: Set up your Web Browser with Tor
Setting up TOR with Firefox is also really easy, since there's a ready-made add-on for Firefox: Torbutton. Just go to this link to download the add-on, install it, and restart Firefox to get it running.
When it's installed right, you'll see a link at the bottom right of your browser window, reading "Tor Disabled." Just click that and it will switch to "Tor Enabled." A series of screenshots are below to help you out.
Once it's running, you're protected! All of your data will be running from computer to computer and switching paths, hiding your location. Web pages will load a little more slowly because of this, but when you need to get online safely, that's a small price to pay.
BTW, when I say you're protected, I mean that you're mostly protected. Read on; my last step talks about other things you can do to improve your security even more.
