Tor Browser – Change Country IP Address

Many companies on the Internet allow to access their services from certain countries only.

If you need to access a website that is blocked from your country – you can use a Tor Browser.

By default, the Tor Browser picks random exit nodes from any country, but it can be configured to use the exit nodes with IP addresses from a particular country only.

Set Country in Tor Browser

To use an exit node from a particular country, find your Tor Browser installation folder and navigate to:

Browser -> TorBrowser -> Data -> Tor

Open the file torrc with a text editor.

Add the following line to make the Tor Browser use exit nodes from specified country only, e.g. from the United States:

ExitNodes {us}

Tor Country Codes: Letters in curly brackets are ISO-3166 country codes.

You can also specify a list of countries whose IP addresses should be used as an exit point:

ExitNodes {kr},{ru},{sy},{cn}

Save modifications and restart the Tor Browser.

The same way you can specify which countries should be used as an entry point or blacklist the nodes located in specified countries.

Use entry nodes with IP addresses from specified countries only:

EntryNodes {country_code},{country_code},...

Never use nodes from these countries, when building a circuit:

ExcludeNodes {country_code},{country_code},...
StrictNodes 1

Never use nodes from these countries when picking an exit (nodes listed in ExcludeNodes are automatically in this list):

ExcludeExitNodes {country_code},{country_code},...
StrictNodes 1

StrictNodes: To really exclude some nodes – you must enable StrictNodes, otherwise the Tor Browser still may use the excluded nodes if it decides that it will be necessary.
