Orbot is a free VPN and proxy app that empowers other apps to use the internet more securely. Orbot uses Tor to encrypt your Internet traffic and then hides it by bouncing through a series of computers around the world. Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security known as traffic analysis.

★  Traffic Privacy
Encrypted traffic from any app, through the Tor network, gives you the highest standard of security and privacy.

★ Stop Snooping
No extra eyes know what apps you are using, and when, or can stop you from using them.

★ No History
No central logging of your traffic history or IP address by your network operator and app servers.

Orbot is the only app that creates a truly private internet connection. As the New York Times writes, “when a communication arrives from Tor, you can never know where or whom it’s from.” 

Tor won the 2012 Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) Pioneer Award.

★ ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTES: Orbot is the official Tor VPN for Android. Orbot bounces your encrypted traffic several times through computers around the world, instead of connecting you directly like traditional VPNs and proxies. This process takes a little longer, but the strongest privacy and identity protection available is worth the wait.
★ PRIVACY FOR APPS: Any installed app can use Tor via the Orbot VPN feature, or if it has a proxy feature, using the settings found here: https://goo.gl/2OA1y Use Orbot with Twitter, or try private web searching with DuckDuckGo: https://goo.gl/lgh1p
★ PRIVACY FOR EVERYONE: Orbot prevents someone watching your connection from knowing what apps you are using or websites you visit. All anyone monitoring your network traffic can see is that you're using Tor.

    Used Orbot for yrs w/few probs. Lately tho it crashes constantly, takes forever to completely launch - if it ever does - & until it finishes launching, it won't let me get a new ID no matter how many times I hit the new identity button. And then only once. Suspect local hackers, which are a big prob here. But it cld be a glitch. Either way, makes it useless for the purpose I use it for - which is to thwart hackers. BTW this is the 2nd time posting this review. Last one got deleted somehow. Hm.

    Orbot works great and doesn't have an ad Everytime you use it! Plus it's easy to use for my phone and all you do is hit the start button! No harassing ads to upgrade!

    Running a bit slower is absolutely nothing to what Orbot does. Probably top 3 greatest inventions made by actual human beings that actually care about something besides themselves. I will always be a huge supporter of the Guardian Project

    Rarely works anymore. Was once the best, now barely even usable. I don't have the time or effort to invest in making this app work for me.

    ☹️🥺👎 Not good app. İt can not connect to internet since i instai orbot. Don't know it might be internet provider blocking orbot but i tried it's all options like connecting with bridge etc. İt didn't worked. Without orbot I was using internet fast. May be not safe. But with orbot no internet. 😇☹️

    Needs to add master control settings to mobile app to setup and edit settings on other devices on the same network (from tablets, laptops and Android TVs).

    When it works it's great. The problem is 70% of the time I start the app up. I connect through bridges kicking the vpn open my browser and nothing. Zero, nada, zilch. No access to tor or onion. Even though the app shows its sending and receiving and connected.

    This is an awesome VPN. It tunnels TCP traffic through a secure proxy chain. I port forward everything through it. The only problem is the battery... Looking at other reviews, I can clearly tell that no one understands what Tor is.

    I've been using tor in general on my pc for as long as I can remember, and once I learned I can use orbot on my phone I'm always connected to the VPN the internet can be a scary place it's great to see creations like this to help increase security
