I'm not sure I fully understand your question, but with Tor there
is no sign-up process. You download the browser and use it just like
you use your other browsers (after having read the warnings:
Adversaries CAN steal your login credentials to other websites
(social networks, email, etc.) if you type them into a website that
does not use HTTPS encryption. This is true of all browsers,
including Tor Browser. You can usually tell if your connection is
HTTPS-protected because the address in the address bar begins with
'https://' rather than 'http://'.
I hope that helps. This is a public mailing list for discussion about
Tor's design, so if you have any other general questions about Tor
see if they are covered by the FAQ:
The question probably reveals me for the non-techie ignoramus I am. But
still...I have secretive (tho' *legal *and *ethical!*) things to do
get there, and I want only the eyes I choose to see what I'm doing.
Alms for the Ignoramus?
