GetTor is a service that provides alternative methods to download Tor Browser, specially for situations where access to Tor Project's official website and mirrors is blocked. For now, the only available method is SMTP (email).
Download Tor Browser via email
Users can communicate with GetTor robot by sending messages via email. Currently, the best known email address to do this is firstname.lastname@example.org. This should be the most current and stable GetTor robot as it is operated by Tor Project itself.
To ask for Tor Browser, a user should send an email to GetTor robot with one of the following options in the body of the message:
- windows: If the user needs Tor Browser for Windows.
- linux: If the user needs Tor Browser for Linux.
- osx: If the user needs Tor Browser for Mac OS X.
Options are case insensitive. If a user selects two or more options, only the first one will be considered. After the user sends a valid option, GetTor robot will reply with links to download Tor Browser from popular cloud services. For now, the only cloud service supported is Dropbox.
Once the files have been downloaded users should verify the integrity of Tor Browser by following the instructions listed in the signature verification guide. After verifying that the downloaded file is valid, users should follow the install instructions to start using Tor Browser. A user that can't reach the Tor network after the install process should consider using bridges or pluggable transports. These guides will be provided by the GetTor robot in the future.
