Se informações pessoais, tais como senhas de login, viajarem pela Internet sem serem criptografadas, elas poderão facilmente ser interceptadas por um espião. Se você estiver fazendo o login em qualquer website, certifique-se de que esse site oferece criptografia HTTPS, o que protege contra esse tipo de espionagem. Você pode verificar isso na barra de endereços: se sua conexão for criptografada, o endereço começará com “https://” ao invés de “http://”.

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.
