• Browse the internet over Tor:
- Websites do not see your real IP address.
- ISPs and insecure wireless networks cannot track your browsing.
- Access .onion sites that are only accessible over Tor.
• Defeat internet filters and censors with "obfs4" & "meek" traffic masking.
• Fight online tracking: use a new IP address and clear your cookies/history/cache in one button.
• And more privacy-enhancing features!
Web browsing is much slower than through a normal web browser or a VPN because your traffic is encrypted and relayed through the Tor network.
Multimedia often bypass Tor and compromise your privacy; video files and video streams are blocked by default and are not supported by Onion Browser.
Onion Browser might not work when inside countries or using ISPs that actively block Tor. If the app does not connect, try using bridges or visit the Help/Support page to see what you can do. Onion Browser does not carry any guarantee of successful use.
Use of Onion Browser is at your own risk; remember that sensitive data does not always belong on a mobile device.
Onion Browser is free and open-source software. You can read more about Onion Browser and how to support development of Tor on iOS by visiting onionbrowser.com
What's New in Version 1.7.8
Onion Browser 1.7.8 contains a security update to Tor:
* Updated to Tor 0.3.0.9. Tor 0.3.0.9 fixes a path selection bug that would allow a client to use a guard that was in the same network family as a chosen exit relay. https://blog.torproject.org/blog/tor-0309-released-security-update-clients
Previous changes in the Onion Browser 1.7 series:
* OpenSSL updated to 1.0.2L. (Since 1.7.6.)
* A new in-app purchase to help support continuing development of Onion Browser.
* Bridge handling revised so that built-in bridges get updated when Onion Browser updates. (Previously you had to de-select and re-select a bridge type to get updated bridges.)
* Tor, libevent, and OpenSSL are now built using the Tor.framework toolkit. See github.com/icepa for more information.
* The Onion Browser default homepage is now significantly faster.
Can't Access 1/2 the Sites I'd Like To
Couldn't get on Alphabay or Hansa (irrelevant now but it was annoying), can't get on to Dream either. I imagine it does a fine job of keeping me anonymous but if the sites on which I'd like to be anonymous aren't accessible then what's the point...?
I'm no guru, not even a student, but I can use this app just fine
Yes, it's a bit rough around the edges, but it's better than the alternative.
