tor usage on the rise

A couple of weeks ago I noted that the release of tails 0.20 seemed to be popular – at least if the traffic on my mirrors was anything to go by. The statistics published by the Tor project itself show an interesting rise in (probable) Tor usage since June.


The graphic shows that the number of active relays rose from around 3,500 in mid June to around 4,200 in mid August. The trend is clearly upwards so it would seem that more people are becoming sufficiently motivated to fund Tor nodes.

That’s fun.
