How to Install the Tor Browser on a Chromebook – How-To Geek

Installing the Tor Browser on a Chromebook requires a slightly different process than on other operating systems. Here’s how you can install the Tor Browser on a Chromebook:

  1. Open the Google Play Store: On your Chromebook, click on the Launcher button in the bottom-left corner of the screen. Then, click on the Play Store icon to open it.
  2. Search for Tor Browser: In the Play Store, use the search bar at the top and search for “Tor Browser.” Press Enter or tap the search icon to initiate the search.
  3. Locate the Tor Browser: Look for the official Tor Project entry in the search results. It should be listed as “Tor Browser: Official, Private, & Secure.” Click on it to open the app page.
  4. Install the Tor Browser: On the app page, click on the “Install” button to begin the installation process. The browser will be downloaded and installed on your Chromebook.
  5. Launch the Tor Browser: Once the installation is complete, click on the “Open” button or locate the Tor Browser in your app drawer to launch it.
  6. Set up the Tor Browser: When you open the Tor Browser for the first time, you’ll be guided through the setup process. Follow the on-screen instructions to configure your privacy and security settings.
  7. Start Browsing with Tor: After the setup process is complete, you can start using the Tor Browser on your Chromebook to access the Tor network and browse the internet anonymously.

It’s worth noting that running the Tor Browser on a Chromebook utilizes the Android app version of Tor, which is not as secure or feature-rich as the desktop version. If you require enhanced security and privacy, consider using the Tor Browser on a different operating system or using the Tails operating system, which is designed to work with the Tor network.

Additionally, please ensure that you use the Tor Browser responsibly and respect applicable laws and regulations while using it.
