In September, we released 4.22 with updates for Tor Browser and Thunderbird, improvements to the Tor Connection Assistant, and several fixes.

Tails 4.23 is scheduled for October 5.

Highlights of the month

  • We got several reports about folks being unable to download Tails images using Google Chrome, Chromium or Chromium-based browsers, and fixed it. (#18616)

  • We also received reports about a new problem with the Additional Software feature (Splitting of clearsigned file errors), and we're working on it! (#18620)

  • We improved our documentation on Connecting to the Tor network and added a new nice diagram.

    A Tor connection goes through 3 relays with the last one establishing the actual connection to the final destination

  • The documentation style guide is now the single place where we describe how we write our documentation.


  • Tails has been started more than 668 017 times this month. This makes 22 267 boots a day on average.
