Support

If you have questions about using Tor:

  1. Check our support wiki for answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about Tor.
  2. See if your question is asked or answered on our StackExchange page. If it isn't, please consider asking it there! Then everybody else can benefit from your question and the answer to it.
  3. Join the #tor irc channel, state the issue, and wait patiently for help.
  4. Read through the archives of the mailing lists to see if anybody else has raised your issue recently. Note that you need to subscribe to the mailing lists before you can post.

If you find your answer, please stick around to contribute back and help others who were once in your position.

IRC

Tor users and developers can also be found in the following channels on OFTC:

  • #tor - For questions about using Tor (as a client, as a relay, as an onion service). Having trouble running Tor or have a question for other Tor users? Then this is the spot for you.
  • #tor-dev - Channel for people who want to do development. Discussions about Tor-related coding, protocols, and project ideas are all welcome.
  • #tor-project - Organization discussions unrelated to software development. A great place to discuss Tor community events, outreach, translation, or website improvements.
  • #tor-meeting - The various Tor teams, like the network team, the browser team, the UX team, and the metrics team, hold periodic publicly logged meetings in this channel.

Email

If you have Tor questions, please try to help yourself via the above support venues. Please don't use this contact address for helpdesk or user requests — we all get too much mail and we won't be able to help you there.

  • frontdesk@rt.torproject.org is for questions and comments about Tor the non-profit organization: funding and donations, trademark questions, affiliation and coordination, major gifts, contract inquiries, etc. Please note that email is not a great approach for safe communication, so if you need privacy consider reaching us some other way. Also note that the frontdesk is currently handled by volunteers, so please be patient.

Should you need to reach us via old-fashioned mail, our mailing address is:

Security Issues

If you've found a security issue in one of our projects or our infrastructure, please email the respective maintainer. You can find their GPG fingerprint/key on our developer ldap search page. Due to the many different projects we have, we do not offer a single list for security issues.
