How am I protected with DarkNetBox?
You're protected via the Tor network which encrypts all of your internet traffic making it virtually impossible for anyone to trace it back to the source (you).
How can I be sure I'm protected?
There are several online tools which will report your public IP address (used to track you). When using DarkNetBox and visiting these sites you'll notice that your IP address doesn't relate to your physical location. These will often think you're in a completely different country.
