THOR is a hardware version of the Tor (The Onion Router) bundle, which provides you with anonymity and privacy you need to bypass any ISP restrictions and enhance your privacy online. This project can turn compatible routers into THOR. You can then connect any other device to TOR network allowing your smart phones and streaming stick to be tunneled privately through TOR.Discover
We agree, using software Tor Bundle is much more convenient for the security aware user. However we argue that Tor bundle cannot be installed on every device you own. For example the streaming stick or one of these 'smart' devices cannot have Tor on them. Hence we created THOR | Tor Hardware Onion Router.
Here you can find the code we use to flash our router. We open source it so anyone can contribute to make it better and investigate any security issues.
Our Tor Hardware Router is based on the MT7620N chipset. These routers have 4 external antennas to cover all your house.
Our router is based on TP-Link C50 routers. This means you get wired Ethernet and wireless 1200Mbps options. Tor is of course much slower than these speeds, but just in case you want to use your router for other purposes.
Our Tor Hardware Router is based on TP-Link C50 routers. These routers have 4 external antennas to cover all your house.
Our Tor Hardware Router doesn't need any further steps or any special apps to be installed. You simply plug it with your Internet provider modem and connect to the new Tor Wi-Fi just like any other Wi-Fi. The difference is the new Wi-Fi will have anything connected to it going through Tor network.
We know Tor users are security aware individuals. Hence we auto update Tor to the latest Tor client on router level after each release automatically.
The router firmware is open source based on OpenWrt. We have nothing to hide from our users. The user can check the source code and inspect the router's hardware too.
No setup required. Just plug next to your ISP modem and wait for the new Tor Wi-Fi to pop up.
Router is based on TP-Link C50 hardware dual band Wi-Fi and Ethernet links.
You pay for the router and own it for life. No extra or hidden fees involved.
We donate portion of our sales to the EFF and Tor foundation to support them keeping our privacy safe.
OpenWrt is baked by many contributors. It's known to be a secure open source firmware for many routers.
Naturally we also keep our routers up to date with the latest Tor releases and flash them into the router.
