Privoxy is available in repositories for Debian and Ubuntu. This means you can install it from PPM and with APT.

Privoxy is a piece of software which acts as a non-caching web proxy. A web proxy is a service that web browsers can use instead of connecting to web servers directly.
Even though web browsers nowadays have built-in features similar to privoxy, the proxy is a good choice if you use multiple browsers, or have a LAN with multiple computers since Privoxy can run as a server application. This way all the configuration is in one place, and you don't have to maintain a similar configuration for possibly many browsers or users.

useful commands :
sudo systemctl status privoxy
netstat -lntup (what ports are in a listening state)
traceroute www.google.com (all intermediary nodes can monitor our packets being forwarded through the Internet.) The use of Tor stops monitoring in its tracks.

Install tor and privoxy.

It is better to have tor repository in your apt source file :

deb https://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org bionic main

Then add the gpg key used to sign the packages by running the following commands at your command prompt:

gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv A3C4F0F979CAA22CDBA8F512EE8CBC9E886DDD89
gpg --export A3C4F0F979CAA22CDBA8F512EE8CBC9E886DDD89 | sudo apt-key add -

You can install it with the following commands:

$ apt update
$ apt install tor deb.torproject.org-keyring

Source : https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en

You can find Tor in standard repositories, but likely an older version.

To help with configuring Tor and Privoxy, have a look at the link above.
