Difference between Tor browser and Tor over VPN

Everyone with a paid Proton VPN plan has access to Tor over VPN, which lets you access onion sites and the Tor network with a single click.

So what are the key differences between using the Tor browser and Tor over VPN?

  • First and foremost, you do not have to install any additional software to your device other than the Proton VPN app to use Tor over VPN.
  • With Tor over VPN, you can access onion sites, like Proton Mail’s Tor website, using your favorite browser.
  • By connecting to a VPN service first, you prevent your Internet service provider from knowing that you are using Tor.

Note: When you connect to Proton VPN, we will be able to see your IP address, like any VPN service. This may be an issue if you trust Proton VPN less than the Tor network.
