What is GetTor?


GetTor is a service that provides alternative methods to download the Tor Browser, especially for people living in places with high levels of censorship, where access to Tor Project's website is restricted.


GetTor

How does it work?

The idea behind GetTor is very simple:

Step 1: Send a request to GetTor specifying your operating system (and optionally your locale).

Step 2: GetTor will send you back a reply with links to download Tor Browser from our supported providers.

Step 3: Download Tor Browser from one of the providers. When done, check the integrity of the downloaded files.

Step 4: If required, get some bridges!


Channels


You can make requests to GetTor using different channels of communication and different locales. At the present moment, we support the following locales: English (en), Farsi (fa), Chinese (zh), Turkish (tr), and the following channels:

Email: you can make a request sending an email to gettor@torproject.org

Quick example:
To get links for downloading Tor Browser in Farsi for Windows, send an email to gettor+fa@torproject.org with the word windows in the body of the message.
XMPP: you can make a request sending a message to gettor@torproject.org

Quick example:
To get links for downloading Tor Browser in Chinese for Linux, send a message to gettor@torproject.org with the words linux zh on it.
Twitter: you can make a request sending a direct message to @get_tor

Quick example:
To get links for downloading Tor Browser in English for OS X, send a direct message to @get_tor with the word osx on it (you don't need to follow the account).

If you have suggestions for more/better channels, or want to improve the current ones, please let us know!


Providers


A provider is where we store the Tor Browser for download. For now, we support the following providers: Github, Dropbox, Google Drive. Ideally, you should check the integrity of Tor Browser after you have downloaded it (if you think your communications are being tampered, then you must do it). If you have suggestions for more/better providers, please let us know!
