Introduction

ProxAllium is a Free and Open Source front-end for Tor which makes it easier for normal everyday people to make more out of Tor! With ProxAllium, you can circumvent censorship and be secure while using public internet hotspots (you can also be anonymous but only upto some extent).

Just run ProxAllium and now you have a working Tor circuit for you to use!

You can consult to the FAQ for more information.

Installation

ProxAllium is fully portable, it does not require any setup to be done and it does not mess with anything outside its own folder!

Just use any file archiver (7-zip is recommended) to extract the .7z file onto your computer, you can extract it to anywhere, it is your choice. The 7z archive/package contains a folder called ProxAllium and within it, you can find ProxAllium itself and other necessary files.

Now you can start using ProxAllium by executing ProxAllium.exe! Easy, isn’t it?

FAQ

What does it do?

ProxAllium’s goal is to make using Tor (Not to be confused with Tor Browser) easier for normal everyday users. It’s basically a front-end for Tor, except that it tries to be more than that.

How is it different from Tor Browser (Bundle)?

It is not a replacement for the TBB, ProxAllium does not come with any browser! You should configure your own browser to work with Tor. Don’t worry because it’s really easy! You just have to use the proxy created by Tor. The method for using the proxy created by Tor is the same as using a traditional SOCKS proxy.

Where do I download ProxAllium?

You can find the 7-zip packages at the Releases page.

How do I make it start on startup?

Create a shortcut of ProxAllium.exe at %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and Windows will start ProxAllium automatically on startup.

I have a question, where can I ask?

You can consult to the "Chat" page on ProxAllium’s website.
