What is Privoxy?

Privoxy is a non-caching web proxy with advanced filtering capabilities for enhancing privacy, modifying web page data and HTTP headers, controlling access, and removing ads and other obnoxious Internet junk. Privoxy has a flexible configuration and can be customized to suit individual needs and tastes. It has application for both stand-alone systems and multi-user networks.

You can find more about Privoxy at Privoxy Home Page.

If you want to hide your IP address from most adversaries, you should consider chaining Privoxy with Tor. The configuration details can be found in How do I use Privoxy together with Tor section just below.

From Privoxy FAQ 4.7.

Before you use TorghostNG

  • For the goodness of Tor network, BitTorrent traffic will be blocked by iptables. Although you can bypass it with some tweaks with your torrent client 😥. It’s difficult to completely block all torrent traffic.
  • For security reason, TorghostNG will disable IPv6 to prevent IPv6 leaks (it happened to me lmao).

Installing TorghostNG

TorghostNG currently supports:

  • GNU/Linux distros that based on Arch Linux
  • GNU/Linux distros that based on Debian/Ubuntu

To install TorghostNG, open your Terminal and enter these commands

git clone
cd TorghostNG
sudo python3
torghostng -h

Or you can just type python3 to run TorghostNG :v


  -h, --help      Show this help message and exit
  -s, --start     Start connecting to Tor
  -x, --stop      Stop connecting to Tor
  -r, --renew     Renew the current Tor circuit
  -id COUNTRY ID  Connect to Tor exit node of a specific country. Go to to search country ID
  -mac INTERFACE  Randomly change MAC address. Use 'ifconfig' to show interface devices
  -c, --checkip   Check your current IPv4 address
  --dns           Use this to fix DNS when website address can't be resolved
  -l, --language  Change the display language. English is the default
  --list          Show the available languages list
  -u, --update    Check for update
  --nodelay       Disable delay time

You can combine multiple choices at the same time, such as:

  • torghostng -s -m INTERFACE: Changing MAC address before connecting
  • torghostng -c -m INTERFACE: Checking IP address and changing MAC address
  • torghostng -s -x: Connecting to Tor anh then stop :v

If you have any questions, you can watch this tutorial videos 🙂

I hope you will love it 😃

How to update TorghostNG

Open Terminal and type torghostng -u with sudo to update TorghostNG, but it will download new TorghostNG to /root, because you’re running it as root. If you don’t like that, you can type git pull -f and sudo python3

Notes before you use Tor

Tor can’t help you completely anonymous, just almost:

It’s recommended that you should use NoScript before before surfing the web with Tor. NoScript shall block JavaScript/Java/Flash scripts on websites to make sure they won’t reveal your real identify.

And please

  • Don’t spam or perform DoS attacks with Tor. It’s not effective, you will only make Tor get hated and waste Tor’s money.
  • Don’t torrent over Tor. If you want to keep anonymous while torrenting, use a no-logs VPN please.

Bittorrent over Tor isn’t a good idea

Not anonymous: attack reveals BitTorrent users on Tor network
