Stay anonymous while hacking online using TOR and Proxychains

In this tutorial we will guide you how to stay anonymous while hacking online using TOR and Proxychains. Hiding your ass while hacking is easy just require some configuration which we will gonna see in this tutorial. Just follow this as shown.

First thing First!!!!


Tor is software and an open network that helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy. It gives you access to the dark web.

Dark web is nothing but the encrypted network that exists between tor servers and their clients.

For more detail :


A tool that forces any TCP connection made by any given application to follow through proxy like TOR or any other SOCKS4, SOCKS5 or HTTP(S) proxy. 

Supported auth-types: "user/pass" for SOCKS4/5, "basic" for HTTP.

Lets start!


1. Open kali linux terminal and type
root@kali:-# sudo apt-get install tor proxychains
root@kali:-# sudo service tor start
root@kali:-# gedit /etc/proxychains.conf
Go to . Select one ip and add as shown :

root@kali:-# proxychains wget -qO-

That's it! Now you can use proxychains with any sort of command.

root@kali:-# proxychains sqlmap -u --dbs


  1. Why give a timeout error?

  2. I tried many ropes but I still can not find the solution that gives timeout error :(

  3. E: Unable to locate package tor
    E: Unable to locate package proxychains
    i use kali light btw

    1. edit this file "/etc/apt/sources.list"
      add the following lines:

      deb kali-rolling main contrib non-free
      # For source package access, uncomment the following line
      # deb-src kali-rolling main contrib non-free

      Save and restart.

  4. Don't work still I'm running on usb

  5. Don't work still I'm running on usb

  6. You gotta be really stupid to use hidemyass proxy ,because most of the "hackers" which used it got busted by police few years ago shame on you for telling newbies how to get arrested

  7. If i use kali on android via vnc viewer / linux deploy can i still use proxychains or should i use SShtunnels?

  8. I spent 20 mins looking through /etc for proxychains. With kali 2017 it needs to be installed. Thanks for the post.
