We at the Tor Project would like to express our deep concern regarding the well-being and the rights of Ola Bini.
This is my first blog post as the Tor Project’s Executive Director. I can’t express how excited I am for this next journey. I have been a Tor user and advocate since its early days, in the Vidalia times. Tor has come a long way, always evolving to provide a holistic solution for anonymity, security and privacy online.
The Tor community is vast and deep yet remains a virtual entity outside periodic physical events. In New York City on December 7, we are going to start to change that.
It’s essential for us to reach people in areas in the world with heavy online surveillance and censorship, especially those in the Global South. Most people in these regions only use smartphones to access the internet, and we want to better support these users by upping our support for mobile browsing.
