Make a Raspberry Pi into a Anonymizing ‘TOR’ Proxy!

Tor + Onion + Raspberry Pi

TOR: The Onion Router is software that enables you to use the internet anonymously. By setting up TOR on a Raspberry Pi you can create a network router that scrambles all of your internet connection.

Turning a Raspberry Pi into a TOR Router has suddenly become much more appealing with Governments changing laws enabling ISPs to track customer internet usage, and selling on the data to advertising companies.

Use a Raspberry Pi to set up a TOR Network Router. I choose a Raspberry Pi 3 specifically because it has built-in wireless networking (the Pi Zero W would work well in this regard too).

The Raspberry Pi connects to the TOR network. All you have to do is then connect the Raspberry Pi to your broadband network, and connect your device to the Raspberry Pi.

What is Pi-Hole?

Pi-Hole is a Linux network-level advertisement and internet tracker blocking application which acts as a DNS sinkhole (And optionally a DHCP server), intended for use on a private network. It is designed for use on embedded devices with network capability, such as the Raspberry Pi, but can be used on other machines running Linux and cloud implementations.
Pi-Hole has the ability to block traditional website adverts as well as adverts in unconventional places, such as smart TVs and mobile operating system adverts.

The Pi-hole project was created by Jacob Salmela as an “Open Source” alternative to the AdTrap.
