An untraceable browser is a free, open-source network that randomly routes internet traffic from one computer to another, creating a maze for information to pass through, thus obfuscating the origin of the data and providing privacy for the end-user. Also known as onion-style routers because user internet traffic is layered like an onion, it dynamically changes the user's IP address every 15 minutes, fooling website logs similar to a VPN. By adding a VPN to an untraceable browser, it could be the most secure option to navigate the internet privately. It would hide the browsing data from the VPN company while ultimately protecting the user's initial IP address from the browser entry node. One considerable downside is the transfer speed. The data is sent through several nodes until it arrives at the server, potentially slowing down the overall connection speed.
