This brief tutorial will show you how to install the Tor browser on ubuntu 20.04 for a more private, secure web experience.
Step 1: Add the PPA repository
Because we will be downloading Tor from the PPA repository, we’re going to have to add the PPA repository to Ubuntu.
Launch the terminal and run the following command:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:micahflee/ppa
PPA repository should be added to Ubuntu on your system.
Step 2: Install Tor
To download and install the Tor browser from the PPA repository, run the following commands:
$ sudo apt install torbrowser-launcher
And just like that, you’ve installed the Tor browser on your computer.
Step 3: Install related dependencies
To install these packages, all you have to do is launch the Tor browser, as it’ll download them automatically. Go to the Activities search bar and type “Tor browser launcher”, then click on its icon to launch the browser. Sit back for a moment until it runs verifications and finish with the downloads.
If, for some reason, you’ve decided that it’s not for you, uninstall it by running the following command with root privileges.
$ sudo apt remove torbrowser-launcher
This should remove Tor from your computer.
This tutorial showed you how to install Tor on Ubuntu 20.04, and hopefully, you’ve followed the instructions and set up the browser without problems.
