What is Tor?

The Tor Browser is a web broswer that anonymizes your web traffic using the Tor network, making it easy to protect your identity online. If you’re investigating a competitor, researching an opposing litigant in a legal dispute, or just think it’s creepy for your ISP or the government to know what websites you visit.

Tor Browser isolates each website you visit so third-party trackers and ads can’t follow you. Any cookies automatically clear when you’re done browsing. So will your browsing history.

Why does Global Site Guard block Tor?

While we all like our privacy, we have noticed that visitors using Tor are prone to attempt to hack into your website. Millions of websites use WordPress, and millions hackers attempt to get into your site using exploits within the WordPress framework, plugins as well as themes. Because Tor users can easily hide their location, with over 6,000 exit nodes we have decided to block them all. As seen below by the URL’s hackers will try anything to get into your website.
