Check if TOR is installed


Recommended Posts


Was working on my router and the Deep Packet inspection detected a TOR connection from my Laptop. Interestingly , I’ve never installed TOR 🤔 Is there a way for me to detect if TOR is installed and what may be using it? I’m using Windows 10(I know, WTF !).

You don't install Tor, it is a service you talk to add a proxy, any application that understands HTTP proxies can use it.

If you've got deep packet inspection then I'd keep monitoring it and note what you are doing when it is detected, see if you can spot what apps are running.

I'd also run malware detection as malware often uses Tor to hide its C&C channel endpoint.
