Vidalia is a graphical controller for the Tor software.
Tor is a network that protects the privacy of the users that connect to the Internet through it. For doing that, it uses virtual tunnels. This way, Tor users will be able to connect to any website without revealing where they are placed, or which computers they use. They will also be able to avoid being blocked by their ISPs or governments.
The program runs in Windows, OS X and Linux. The program offers several language options.
Vidalia will let you start and stop Tor, see how much bandwidth you are using, how many circuits are you using, and where are these circuits connected on a world map. It also provides a button that will show you the messages that Tor sends about its progress and current state. Through Vidalia you will be able to configure Tor settings.
This program includes a help system that will help the users to understand all of the Tor´s options.
This program will not always protect your Internet connection. You will need a dynamic IP configuration.
- It is free.
- It is very easy to use.
