Wenn persönliche Informationen wie Login-Passwörter unverschlüsselt über das Internet gesendet werden, können diese relativ einfach durch Angreifer abgehört werden. Wenn du dich bei einer Internetseite anmeldest, solltest du sicherstellen, dass diese HTTPS-Verschlüsselung anbietet, welche gegen diese Art von Abhören schützt. Du kannst in deiner Adressleiste feststellen, dass deine Verbindung verschlüsselt ist, da diese mit "https://" statt mit "http://" beginnen.

The following visualization shows what information is visible to eavesdroppers with and without Tor Browser and HTTPS encryption:

  • Click the “Tor” button to see what data is visible to observers when you're using Tor. The button will turn green to indicate that Tor is on.
  • Click the “HTTPS” button to see what data is visible to observers when you're using HTTPS. The button will turn green to indicate that HTTPS is on.
  • When both buttons are green, you see the data that is visible to observers when you are using both tools.
  • When both buttons are grey, you see the data that is visible to observers when you don't use either tool.
