Anonymity is perhaps the most sought after thing in today’s internet age. VPNs, incognito mode are part of a single step but you can cross all the unforeseeable limit of privacy with the Tor Browser.
Tor has now finally released the Stable Build of the Browser which is available on Android. According to Tor,
“Mobile browsing is increasing around the world, and in some parts, it is commonly the only way people access the internet. In these same areas, there is often heavy surveillance and censorship online, so we made it a priority to reach these users.”
The browser is based on firefox such is feature packed and convenient. Instead of having a direct connection with the server, Tor uses a plethora of middle links which effectively hides your IP address and other identification. You can also go over to the Onion Network without even installing the Orbot app which is now inbuilt and is launched automatically.
This means wonders for activists, political journalists as they can use Tor to successfully avoid the government and the prying eyes of other authorities. Even your Internet Service Provider cannot make out exactly what was being talked about. The browser isn’t completely problem free either. On various you might be denied access as multiple users using the server might get flagged as a bot.
There is no support for iOS devices. Apparently, Apple blocks access to the computation power and thus forces the companies to focus on their own methods.
