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

ExitNodes {us}
StrictNodes 1

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}
StrictNodes 1

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},...
StrictNodes 1

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

  1. Сразу возник вопрос – У меня в настройках нет возможности внести код для того, чтобы выдавались только российские ip. Есть какое-то другое решение?

  2. I knew how to set the entry node & exit nodes in torrc file. . However, when I look at the TOR Onion I have :
    – This Browser
    -Australia x.x.x.x
    -Germany x.x.x.x
    -Australia x.x.x.x
    – Internet.
    and then look at, it shows the IP location located in US, Washington consistently no matter what country domain name(2 letters) I changed. Should it shows IP in town locates in Australia ? Any ideas ?


    1. yea Tor browser default settings are always better but as admin said some websites like spotify available only in US then we (at least me) must to change the exit node to us, but here is a thing if you bored and want to do some illegal things (!) its better to use the default settings

  4. Does not work at all. Always US and Canada.

    It didn’t work for me. I used Tor, inserted “ExitNodes {IL}” and IP location showed my IP address as IP locator showed this address belongs to: Israel HaMerkaz Petah Tikva
    but when I wanted to see an Israeli site, O am still getting the message “his content is unavailable in your country”


  6. Sometimes it seems to work, but not always. I am using “ExitNodes {nl},{be},{lu} StrictNodes 1” in the torrc file.

  7. Don’t forget EntryNodes {country_code}, it works better

  8. I have read several articles in google and watched several videos in youtube regarding this matter. It’s the same tips everywhere but it doesn’t work. Maybe it used to, with older versions of Tor but with the latest it doesn’t. After i edit the torrc file, save and restart the browser is not working. The browser can not connect.

  9. I have read it has to do with the time zone synchronization. When I use exit nodes in my time zone I have no problem connecting to Tor, but as soon as I use an exit node from another time zone, it fails to connect. How do I fix this time zone issue?

    it worked for me

  11. Worked also for me. I just set both Entry/Exit notes to U.S

    1. Sorry for the typo, NODES*

  12. Is this for android? I can’t find the torrc file

  13. Not working at all! Still keeps showing the same location no matter what i put in the torrc file. Also seems like Tor’s New Identity doesn’t work either..
