How To Force Tor Browser To Use U.S. IP Addresses Only


The Tor browser project is "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." In other words it's a browser that uses different IP Addresses and none being yours. Out of the box it randomly uses IP addresses from around the world. But once you add this very simple code to the tor torrc file it will only us U.S. IP addresses.

To locate torrc file navigate to "Tor Browser\Data\Tor\torrc". Simple temporarily change the name to torrc.txt in order to edit the file. Add the following two lines of code directly after the existing code within the torrc file. Now all your random IP's should be within the U.S. - you can use this site to confirm your new IP location.

ExitNodes {us}
StrictNodes 1
