How to Install Tor Browser on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy

Learn the steps to install Tor Browser on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy Linux using command terminal to surf anonymously and securely.

Tor uses the principle of onion routing to encrypt the connection and transfer data of users on the Internet. It allows anonymous, secure surfing on the Internet.

It also offers its own browser (Tor Browser Bundle), which already contains the appropriate Tor configurations and other modified scripts – it is based on Mozilla Firefox ESR. The official Tor Messenger has also existed since 2015, which uses Instantbird as a basis but encrypts information via off-the-record (OTR) messaging – the Tor network anonymization is also already integrated.

Tor enables completely two-way anonymization; a randomly chosen route takes place through Tor servers. The network itself therefore not only uses one server but usually connects to at least three servers in order to increase the quality of the anonymization.

Here in this tutorial, we will learn the steps to install the Tor browser on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.
