A few days after the blocking of websites, Tor browser and 8 other subdomains of Tor project were blocked. Tor was blocked after it was noticed that its users are increasing in number to overcome the governmental blocking policies. Tor is an open-source application administrated by volunteers. Its aim is to support the protection of privacy on the internet (it hides IP addresses and encrypts communications). The number of blocked websites had rose to 34 at the time Tor was blocked (Massar’s calculations).
