Is TOR, The Onion Router Safe?

Hi, I'm new. I heard about TOR recently from the hactivist group, Anonymous. Is it actually safe?

I haven't had any experience with TOR so can't really comment on that.
Welcome though, hope you enjoy the forum!!!!!

I thought TOR was interesting and I was hoping that it would be safe to use.

Does it also make your computer a lot slower?

well that depends on what you are going to use it for. For basic tasks such as searching, checking email, finding forms and other stuff like that it is fast. It is not intended for the use of downloading a torrent of Linux and other legal things due to the fact that everyone will see the change in the network if your doing something like that. Maybe read this if your new to tor: http://www.instructables.com/id/Go-Online-without-Getting-Snooped-Tor-The-Onion-/step1/How-Tor-Works/ Admin or member who has been here for a while, is it ok to post links to other websites in posts or should I know of a rule of some type.I read through all the doucuments as that tends to help. One thing about tor is that it is nice, but it is meant for things that will not get you in trouble such as braking laws. You as the user have to use your judgment and use it for good intent and understand it a little bit before you really know why it works for so many people.
