Tor Browser Arrives on Android

Looking for a private mobile browser app? Tor has the answer

That's why journalists, activists, and cybercriminals all use Tor.

The Tor Project didn't say if it was planning on developing an iOS version, but in the meantime, continued to recommend that iOS users use Mike Taggs' Onion Browser app. At the moment users need to connect to Tor network still using Orbot.

The interface of the Tor Browser for Android is similar to any Firefox browser.

This latest version of the Tor Browser is based on Firefox ESR 60, which was released in May 2018 and which marks the launch of Firefox Quantum in the ESR channel.

Webpage requests on a Tor-enabled browser are encrypted multiple times for a journey that detours through three servers.

The new Tor Browser will become the preferred way to connect to Tor on your phone, but it's not done yet.

If you select Safer, Tor Browser for Android will disable JavaScript on non-HTTPS sites, disable some math symbols and fonts, and make HTML5 media click to play. Any cookies automatically clear when users are done browsing. But soon the browser will itself have this feature. For bookmark management, there is a dedicated Bookmarks tab. Though at the moment the browser has a few bugs.

You can browse the Web on the Tor Browser in multiple tabs, and for enhanced privacy, there is an option to open new private tabs as well. These could be fixed in the next release. The release is marked as alpha at this point in time; this becomes obvious right after start as it is required that you install Orbot, a proxy application, on your Android device as well as Tor Browser requires it now for its functionality.

You can get the Tor Browser from the Play Store or on APK Mirror. Alternatively, you can download its APK file from APK Mirror.
