Your log tells you, that you have no usable consensus. So I guess, its not about the restricted sites you like to visit, its about your firewall, not letting you connect to the tor-default bridges behind 109.105.109.163. Restart your Tor-Client and read this information for a possible solution: https://www.torproject.org/docs/faq.html.en#BehindANAT

The signature is not bundled with the archive; it can be found on the Tor Project website in the same place as the download (just append .asc to the end of the archive's path or look for the sig link under the download link). See here for a full list of TBB 3.5 archives and signatures.

Your ISP is able to figure out that you're using Tor from the network traffic you make. In particular they can analyze ordinary Tor traffic for telltale fingerprints. If you live in a (relative to those less fortunate) free, fair, democratic nation, they really shouldn't be able to say you cannot use Tor. This is because ordinary Tor traffic uses TLS for ...

This app was already identified as fake. In the public bug tracker you'll find report #10549. A complaint was filed at 26th December 2013. It is unclear how and when Apple will react. I can only recommend to not use this app.

If you're having trouble saving the changes to the prefs.js file, might be a permissions issue.

Tor decided not to support the naming system anymore. There is a proposal which proposes to kill the Named flag. Sebastian Hahn announced this change in August 2014. So instead of names you should use their fingerprints. For instance the relay CatRelay02 has the fingerprint CF6160C40FF2A9FB8A1CB5D02F4A2D56ACDC4CF6. Just insert this into you torrc and it ...

There is no official Tor app that is developed by or maintained by the Tor Project. If you trust the Tor Project, that does not necessarily mean you should trust arbitrary Tor apps you find in the iOS store. Maybe they work. Maybe they are safe. That being said, recently the Tor Project has endorsed Onion Browser, which is available on the App Store here.

Why Run Supported Software I agree with @canonizingironize, you are still going to be a target. There are so many people running out-of-date software that targeting them is lucrative. Also, let's not forget that you'll still be vulnerable to many of the newly discovered security issues. Many security holes are only found and fixed years after they were ...

that's perfectly possible, at least if there's an exit node in/on that particular city/state/country/continent (you'll need to do your research as to where exactly the exits are physically located yourself), but quite discouraged, as for certain scenarios it makes attacking you easier - if you still want to go down that route, see https://www.torproject.org/...

According to the torrc manual page the correct syntax is ExitNode X.X.0.0/16,Y.Y.Y.0/24 So it should work when you leave out the curly braces.

Tor can work on both Firefox and Chrome. Its like an add-on and not a browser in and about itself. You can also install a button on your chrome to toggle Tor on and off which is much quicker than launching Tor again and again separately. Here is a good guide on how to do it plus some more tips and explanations that will help you better understand how Tor ...
