The OS, which had its initial release in 2013, touted that it’s designed for developers, security specialists, network administration, and hackers.
One feature Parrot OS has is the Tor browser. This browser keeps web usage anonymous by hopping traffic from one location to another. It’s known in the mainstream for use in the dark web, but it’s known for its use in regions where censorship is prevalent.
Oracle’s VM software is free, but Parallels will set a user at least $100 after a trial period.
My experience is limited since I’ve only used the Linux distribution in Hack the Box, but I hope to explore Parrot OS a bit more in the near future.
