CyberGhost VPN FAQ

Why Do You Need a VPN for Tor

Tor uses multiple layers of encryption to let you browse anonymously. However, Tor entry nodes can still see your IP address. Your ISP can also identify you as a Tor user and may block access to Tor Browser. To become truly anonymous and access Tor on any network, you need a VPN.

CyberGhost VPN encrypts your internet traffic and redirects it through private servers to mask your IP address. You can use CyberGhost VPN to access Tor from anywhere in the world.

Simply connect to a CyberGhost server, then open Tor Browser. “Tor over VPN” hides your IP address from Tor’s entry nodes. It also means your ISP won’t know that you’re accessing the Tor network.

“VPN over Tor” is the reverse process. You connect to a VPN after going through the Tor network. CyberGhost VPN doesn’t support this option as it’s difficult to set up and doesn’t give you any additional anonymity benefits.

Key differences between the two methods:

Tor over VPN VPN over Tor
Your ISP won’t know that you use Tor. Your ISP will know you use Tor and may block your access to the network.
You can access .onion sites. You can’t access .onion sites.
You can’t access sites that block Tor traffic. You can access sites that block Tor traffic.
The entry node can’t see your IP address. The entry node can see your IP address.
Your traffic isn’t protected at Tor’s exit nodes. Your traffic is encrypted at Tor’s exit nodes.

VPNs are a privacy tool, but not all providers take your privacy seriously. Some VPN providers log data, such as your IP address or web traffic. Make sure your trips to the dark web remain private with CyberGhost VPN!

Our bulletproof No Logs policy ensures we never monitor, keep, or share any information about you. We’re also located in Romania, outside of any “Eyes” alliances. That means we can enforce our No-Logs policy with full government support.

Best-In-Class Encryption

Tor Browser makes it hard for someone to trace your internet activity back to you, but it’s not impossible. If someone compromises your entry point into the Tor network, your data could be at risk.

CyberGhost VPN encrypts all your internet traffic using 256-bit AES military-grade encryption. Anyone monitoring Tor’s entry nodes will see only encrypted traffic to your VPN’s server.

CyberGhost’s top-level encryption also means your ISP won’t know you’re accessing Tor Browser. That means they can’t block your access or tell the authorities what you’re up to!

If you’re using Tor for whistleblowing, then any privacy leak could land you in hot water. VPN connections are generally reliable, but they’re not infallible. A dropped connection could expose your IP address for anyone to see.

Don’t panic! Cyberghost VPN’s Kill Switch acts as a built-in safety net. If your VPN connection drops, even for a second, the Kill Switch disconnects your device from the internet. This keeps your data and IP address safe.

No one can identify you as a Tor user as long as CyberGhost VPN is on duty!

CyberGhost VPN comes with a killswitch

Automatic Kill Switch

Secure Servers in 100 Countries

Worried you may not be able to use Tor if you’re traveling abroad? Countries with strict censorship often ban Tor. Local work, school, or other networks may also have restrictions on Tor Browser.

We believe in a free, borderless internet. CyberGhost VPN has thousands of servers worldwide to help you bypass restrictions and censorship. Connect to one of our safe servers and get an IP address in a country of your choice!

All CyberGhost’s servers are RAM-only. The data held on a server gets deleted every time the server reboots. No one will ever know you accessed the Tor network.

DNS Leak Protection

DNS leaks expose your data, including your IP address. They can occur even when you’re connected to a VPN. Often, you won’t even know it’s happened until an enforcement agency knocks on your door.

Sounds scary? You can protect yourself. CyberGhost VPN has built-in DNS leak protection. Along with our Kill Switch, this plugs all possible leaks.

It only takes a second for an adversary to take advantage of a data breach. Check if you’re exposed and protect every minute of your online activity with CyberGhost VPN.

Ultra-Fast Connections

Tor has a bad reputation when it comes to speed. The process of routing your data through multiple nodes is great for security but a hindrance to fast browsing. Add on a slow VPN and things get even worse!

CyberGhost's servers are fast, stable, and secure. We support the WireGuard®, IKEv2, and OpenVPN tunneling protocols. Pick WireGuard® for the fastest speeds!

If you think your slow speeds are due to your ISP throttling your connection, CyberGhost can help with that, too! Test us out with our 45-day money-back guarantee!

Tor routes your data through a minimum of three randomly-selected nodes. Each node removes or adds a layer of encryption. This means any website you visit can’t trace the connection back to you.

Tor is ideal when you want to communicate highly sensitive information on the internet. It also blocks third-party trackers and lets you access restricted sites, including sites on the dark web.

Tor offers anonymity and helps you fight censorship, but it’s far from perfect:

  • The system is slow because of the multiple layers of encryption.
  • Your ISP can detect that you’re using Tor.
  • Tor Browser only secures your browsing data, so other apps that run separately aren’t protected.
  • Cybercriminals can operate Tor’s servers, so you may still be vulnerable to cyberattacks.

Match CyberGhost VPN with Tor for unrivaled privacy and anonymity across every device.

How Does Tor Work?

Is it Illegal to Use the Tor Browser?

It’s not illegal to use Tor. Activists, journalists, and whistleblowers often use Tor Browser to share information privately and securely on the internet. You can also use Tor to access restricted websites in your country, such as Facebook, Twitter, and TikTok.

ISPs are sometimes suspicious of Tor users, as some people use Tor Browser to access illegal content. If your ISP is blocking your access to Tor, you need a VPN!

CyberGhost VPN encrypts your internet traffic, so your ISP won’t know you’re accessing Tor Browser. Subscribe to CyberGhost VPN and get maximum online privacy!


Tor over VPN provides a more secure solution to protect your online identity than VPN over Tor. CyberGhost VPN masks your IP address, so your identity isn’t revealed to the Tor entry node. Tor over VPN also allows you to access the Tor Browser on a restricted network.

When you opt for VPN over Tor, your ISP and government may detect that you’re a Tor user and block your access. Don’t let that happen! Browse worry-free on Tor with CyberGhost VPN.

Yes, CyberGhost VPN works perfectly with the Tor Browser. Simply, pick a server from our global network to encrypt your internet traffic, then open Tor Browser to access websites anonymously.

If you need extra assistance, contact our helpful 24/7 customer support team.

We don’t recommend you use a free VPN to access Tor. Free VPNs are super slow and they often collect your personal data and share it with third parties.

CyberGhost VPN invests in top-of-the-range servers to give you a fast, reliable browsing experience. Our RAM-only servers and watertight No-Logs policy guarantee your privacy. Your digital identity is safe with us.

You don’t need Tor for everyday use. It’s too slow for activities like streaming or gaming. Tor is best used when you want an extra layer of security and privacy, for example, when accessing restricted websites or if you’re involved in a whistleblowing case.

CyberGhost VPN is better for day-to-day browsing. It protects your privacy on public Wi-Fi connections and lets you unblock restricted websites. Our specialist servers guarantee top speeds for streaming, gaming, and torrenting.

No. Your trips to the dark web remain a secret thanks to Tor’s multiple encryption layers. However, Tor can’t offer 100% anonymity since your ISP can see that you’re accessing Tor Browser.

Protect your identity with CyberGhost VPN and browse safely on Tor without anyone being able to identify you as a Tor user. Try CyberGhost VPN with our 45-day money-back guarantee.

You can use Tor to access blocked content, browse the dark web, stop browser trackers, and share highly sensitive information. The Tor Browser lets you access websites anonymously, but it doesn’t stop your ISP or government from identifying you as a Tor user.

For complete online privacy, use CyberGhost VPN to access Tor Browser.
