Let's face it, anonymity and privacy concerns are paramount to bookmakers and agents.  This being the case, it is important to use practices that abide by specific security protocol.


Tor prevents someone watching your Internet connection from finding out what sites you visit and your physical location.  While not exactly necessary for the average Joe, bookies and agents may want to start using Tor in order to enhance Web surfing security.

The Pay Per Head site PayPerHeadAgents.com advises:

The Onion Browser (TOR) a program developed with the U.S Navy with the sole purpose of browsing the Internet anonymously.

The nuts and bolts of it is that it disguises your identity by moving your browsing activity across worldwide servers and encrypting things so they’re not traced back to you.

If you want to become anonymous- say, if you’re an online bookie that wants to keep Big Brother’s eyes off of you-Tor is one of the fastest ways to keep yourself private.

It’s also free..

It can be downloaded and install to your browser here

Tor is configured to protect your privacy and anonymity as is, so as long as you’re browsing the Internet with the Tor browser, you should be fine.

Just be sure to never install additional add-ons or plugins into Tor Browser and never open documents downloaded while using Tor.


Tor will encrypt your traffic to and within the Tor network, but the encryption of your traffic to the final destination website depends upon on that website. Make sure that websites you provide information to display a blue or green URL bar button, include https:// in the URL, and display the right expected name for the website.

Never access confidential sites (i.e. financials) when traveling and using a hotel Internet access unless the site in question contains the https:// format (NOT HTTP:).  Just remember the "S".
