The Brave Tor window refers to a feature in the Brave web browser called "Private Window with Tor." Tor is a network that allows users to browse the internet anonymously by routing their connections through multiple encrypted nodes. The Brave browser offers a built-in Tor integration, allowing users to access the Tor network directly from the browser's interface.
When a user opens a new private window with Tor in Brave, their internet traffic is routed through the Tor network, providing enhanced anonymity and privacy. This feature can be especially useful when users want to access websites anonymously or bypass censorship restrictions. Additionally, it helps protect against monitoring or tracking by ISPs (Internet Service Providers) or other entities.
Opening a Brave Tor window launches a separate browser window with a purple onion icon, indicating that it is connected to the Tor network. It allows users to browse the web with an additional layer of privacy and security compared to regular browsing modes.
