we all use tor, for one reason or another, and like most of us your running kali linux or another pentest suit. if you are then you know most of them run as root, and browsers such as chrome and tor are well known to have safeguards to stop us from running them as root. this is how to get rid of it.

You have 2 options
– Make another user
– Remove these lines of code:

– Type

nano start-tor-browser

– Comment those lines

#if [ “`id -u`” -eq 0 ]; then
# complain “The Tor Browser Bundle should not be run as root. Exiting.”
# exit 1

Now you can start as root, its quite quick to do. i will also do a tutorial on how to install it if you guys want.

i should have started off with this

What is Tor?
Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security. This guide guides your through installing tor in Kali Linux.

Why anonymity matters?
Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location.
