German police have seized the names and banking details of donors to the privacy browser Tor.



The names and bank details of European donors to the anonymous browser Tor and its associated operating system Tails are now with the German Federal police after coordinated raids on four homes and a lawyers office in Dresden. German police produced a warrant to investigate the privacy activist group RiseUp after a left-wing blog called “Krawalltouristen” (ruckus tourists) used their anonymous email and VPN services to organise a protest of the far-right AfD party. Police were supposedly concerned that the protest could become violent.
