Crypto Wallet Trezor Incorporates ‘Tor Switch’ in its Desktop App for Increased Privacy
The popular hardware wallet, Trezor, is working on providing its users’ privacy.
In its desktop app “Trezor Suite,” the cold wallet service provider has implemented the privacy project Tor to allow its users to obscure their connection.
Tor is an open-source network which has its servers distributed around the world run by volunteers and uses a special protocol that encrypts data at multiple levels. One can now not only enjoy the safety of the hardware wallet but the anonymity of Tor as well on Trezor.
“Tor is the perfect match for users who are concerned about sharing identifying data with a third-party service or anyone who might be observing their communications,” said Trezor in its announcement.
By downloading the latest public beta version of Trezor Suite, one can start using Tor with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Currently, The Tor switch is only available in the desktop app, located in the top-right of the Suite window.
Used by the likes of whistleblowers such as Julian Assange and Edward Snowden to evade espionage from the US governments and from journalists, security specialists, governments to individuals worldwide, Tor has helped protect human rights and individual freedoms.
