Question Does using Tor affect the entire home network?


Hi,

I'm just wondering, if a PC using Tor (with Tails) can affect the other PC connected on the home network through the router. And by affect I mean hiding their real IP, getting slower connection, etc, or this only applied to the PC running Tor and the other ones can run normally?

Regards.

Unless "a PC using TOR" means a router and you explicitly route traffic from other machines through it TOR has no effect on other machines.

Thanks!

So that means you don't have to worry about the other people on the house that are connected to the same router as you if you use TOR on your PC, TOR is only activated on that PC and doesn't affect the other PC (no slowdowns whatsoever).
