How HTTPS and Tor Work Together to Protect Your Anonymity and Privacy

Tor is anonymity software that hides your IP address from the website you are visiting by sending your traffic through three hops, also called Tor relays. HTTPS encrypts your web traffic between your browser and the website you are visiting. These two technologies are separate but complimentary.
