No. Tails stopped working on 32-bit computer in [[Tails
3.0|news/Tails_3.0_will_require_a_64-bit_processor]] (June 2017). Software
built for 64-bit processors can benefit from several improvements that make it
harder for attackers to exploit security vulnerabilities.
Before Tails 3.0, we estimated that [[only 4% of our
users|news/Tails_3.0_will_require_a_64-bit_processor]] still had a 32-bit
computer. We decided that the increased security for everybody else was more
important than the compatibility with 32-bit computers.

For the moment, Tails is only available on the x86_64 architecture.
