Tor Browser isolates each website you visit so third-party trackers and ads can’t follow you. Any cookies automatically clear when you’re done browsing.

Tor Browser prevents someone watching your connection from knowing what websites you visit. All anyone monitoring your browsing habits can see is that you’re using Tor.

Tor aims to make all users look the same, making it difficult for you to be fingerprinted based on your browser and device information.

When you use Tor Browser for Android, your traffic is relayed and encrypted three times as it passes over the Tor network. The network is comprised of thousands of volunteer-run servers known as Tor relays. Watch this animation to learn more about how it works:

With Tor Browser for Android, you are free to access sites your local internet service provider may have blocked.

Tor Browser is free and open source software developed by the Tor
Project, a nonprofit organization. You can help keep Tor strong, secure,
and independent by making a donation:

I love the desktop version, but there are a few problems (although minor) that I have with this mobile version. First, when I change my home page, it reverts to about:tor after I restart the app. I imagine this is a quick fix, so it's not too big of a problem. The second problem is that the network speed on the mobile version seems to be even slower than the desktop version. Finally, I have a quick suggestion: I think the browser should have a built in QR code reader for secure link sharing.

Very good program, no problems establishing and maintaining a connection to the Tor Network and accessing restricted websites. There are a few small bugs: -I wish there was an option in the settings to automatically connect to the Tor Network when the application is started, instead of requiring the user manually click the onion-shaped "START" button. I only launch this app on my device when I intend to connect to the Tor Network, it would make sense to connect-on-launch. -There is an option in the settings the user can uncheck to disable Always-On Notifications, but the option does not seem to work. -The "save file" or "save image as" options on webpages does not work. Maybe the application is saving the images somewhere deep in the applications folder, I don't know. But there is nothing in the standard downloads folder in Android, this is inconvenient for most users. Overall though this application does the job, and does it much more smoothly that having to use Orbot and Orfox separately.

It works well, except for one thing: I often get rejected on YouTube with an "unusual traffic" message. I wish the browser would check YT connectivity before assigning an exit point. This error sometimes happens repeatedly, and the only cure is to close the browser, restart it, and hope that you get an exit point that YouTube (Google) "likes". Also, it would be nice if you could specify the country for the exit point as well.
