How HTTPS and Tor Work Together to Protect Your Anonymity and Privacy

  • Click the "Tor" button to see what data is visible to eavesdroppers when you're using Tor. The button will turn green to indicate that Tor is on.
  • Click the "HTTPS" button to see what data is visible to eavesdroppers when you're using HTTPS. The button will turn green to indicate that HTTPS is on.
  • When both buttons are green, you see the data that is visible to eavesdroppers when you are using both tools.
  • When both buttons are grey, you see the data that is visible to eavesdroppers when you don't use either tool.
  • Potentially visible data includes: the site you are visiting (SITE.COM), your username and password (USER/PW), the data you are transmitting (DATA), your IP address (LOCATION), and whether or not you are using Tor (TOR).
