#1 in Norway and Ireland, #2 in the UK and Emirates, #3 in the Netherlands, #5 in New Zealand and #7 in the US just within a week!

With this App you are able to browse from over 600 different IP-Addresses in over 100 countries !

As your connection is routed over 3 different Servers before reaching its destination (Website) there is no way for the other end to find out where you are.
To secure your data along the path it is fully encrypted with strong 128bit AES Encryption.

► You need the best Anonymity you can get ?
Just select "Random" from the menu,
and the Software will automatically change to a new IP-Address every few minutes.

► You need to connect to a website from a specific country ?
No problem, just select a Server from a Country you want to pretend browsing from. To do so, just tap on the IP-Address in the upper right of the screen.

► You need to access content which is blocked by your ISP ?
No problem, as your ISP can not see what sites you are accessing there is no way to block them either.

Customer Reviews

An anonymous browser+; Lacks basic functionality

The browser works great for anonymous browsing but it has some irritating functionality issues. I imagine these developer(s) will no longer sell if they do not improve it soon.

JavaScript is disabled to keep you anonymous folks, this is a no brainer and the browser speed will be slower because its routed. However I find it irritating that the on screen keyboard is for URLs only yet it states you can search in the address bar, the problem with that?! There is no space button. Also the ability to choose nodes needs a cancel button for when one hits it accidentally.

Once these and other performance issues/crash issues are fixed this will be a winner. Better hurry though other developers are likely to fill the need.

Good start!

I think a lot of people who buy this app don't quite get what it is and how it works.

Tor is an onion routing protocol. When you visit a website, your request is routed through multiple hosts around the world through the tor network. Inherently this will make browsing a slow process generally. The advantage? Your ISP only sees the Tor start node, not where your request is going. The out node sees where the request goes, but doesn't know where it originated.

I'm happy with the performance of covert browser. Why only three stars then? Because it does not handle cookies. Site logins require cookies. As such, I can't use covert browser for some sites I'd like to visit.

I sent a request to the author for cookie support and got back a response in the same day. So, support is excellent.

Works but not really

I have it working but cannot log into my bank because bank does not recognize my computer. I'm no whiz, but I think having cookies on this app is impossible and defeats its whole purpose! Tor is setup so the website you access is reached from a totally different computer than yours, most likely in a different country. Try putting a cookie on that computer! If you ask for cookies you don't understand the Tor network.
