Tor Challenge Inspires 1,635 Tor Relays
By Rainey Reitman for Electronic Frontier Foundation
Good news for whistleblowers, journalists, and everyone who likes to browse the Internet with an added cloak of privacy: the Tor network got a little stronger. Tor—software that lets you mask your IP address—relies on an international network of committed volunteers to run relays to help mask traffic. And that network is stronger now, thanks to the 1,000+ volunteers who participated in our second-ever Tor Challenge.
The goal of the Tor Challenge is simple: to improve the Tor network by inspiring people to run relays.
