Can I use Alby with the Tor Browser?

Yes, Alby works fine! The Tor Browser is one of the most important tools for internet privacy and we are committed to unlock the best Bitcoin lightning experience for Tor Browser users. In fact the Tor Browser has the advantage that connecting Tor your own home node running behind Tor is even easier as it natively can connect to Tor nodes.
By default the Tor Browser runs in "Private browsing mode" and extensions have to be manually allowed to run in "Private Windows".
This means after installing the Alby extension from the Firefox add-ons store go to "Add-ons and themes" and allow Alby to "Run in Private Windows".
  1. 1.
    Install the Alby extension from the Firefox add-ons store
  2. 2.
    Go to Add-ons and themes, (about:addons), select Alby and in the "Run in Private Windows" choose "allow". The Tor Browser will then enable Alby in the default private mode.
Add-ons in the Tor Browser will always have certain privacy and anonymity implications. Depending on what you want to do, do your own research.
