Tor is an anonymous network maintained by The Tor Project, Inc, a research and education non-profit organisation.

Tor directs Internet traffic through a global, free, volunteer network consisting of over seven thousand relays.

Tor conceals the location and usage of network users from anyone spying on the network or from those analysing traffic, giving users a secure anonymous platform in which to communicate. Basically it allows users to protect their internet activities from monitoring.
