BLOCK TRACKERS
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. 

DEFEND AGAINST SURVEILLANCE
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. 

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

MULTI-LAYERED ENCRYPTION
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: 

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

    tor browser alpha apkpure 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.

    Plain and simple, real easy to use... It does tend to stray away from your original search and if you search for things like names, brands, titles, places,etc.; with uncommon spellings, it returns your search with its "corrected" spelling and wrong search results, or with people names, if there's anyone famous with that name, you will get nothing but results for that person ... Aside from that, it gets 5 stars, best one for privacy n the dark side !

    The first time I used it was the only time it seemed to work. After one day Google popped up asking if I wanted to save information on the page. Wasn't I using this browser to hide my personal information from Google? If you download it from the play store Google can corrupt it anyway they want to. I can't even make a donation to For without Google saving my information. I can't email Tor to get a response. It's just another Google browser displayed how Google wants to.

    Excellent private browsing program. Add the complementary search engines and the vpn to get an awesome package. Websites like Google and Microsoft are trying to block the use of this program because it blocks cookies and spybot advertising. With Firefox selling out to Google search (by making Google search as default search engine), your privacy has just been blown.

    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.

    I love this app, but ever since I updated it this last time, it glitches out about 3 seconds after I try to connect to the Tor network, the furthest i have gotten it to connect to Tor since then before it stops is 10% bootstraped. I hope that this can be resolved because I would very much like to be able to get back to using this as my browser, as it is by far, my favorite option for a browser that is secure and has been stable up until this last update.

    I love what TOR is doing, but I do wonder if they will ever release an official TOR browser for IOS. Either way, I have used TOR for years now and it is impressive to see what they have accomplished so far speaking they're non-profit. I enjoy this browser more than orfox because it felt more clean, smooth, and user-friendly while orfox just felt like it was a little too complex for an average user. However, this new app feels just like any other browsing app on Android except it includes everything you need to stay anonymous and respects your privacy unlike many other browsers claiming to do so.

    I installed the browser on my Samsung tab A version 8.1.0 tablet. although it worked fine in itself, when I tried afterwards to 'google' something, there was an 'oops' message & no web page. This happened on Chrome also. The browser that still worked was Opera. I uninstalled the Tor program, but it was still the same. I then did a factory reset on Chrome (I was unable to uninstall, as it was part of the operating system) & everything was back to normal. Today I updated Chrome & all was OK.

    So far, the browser is ok for an Alpha. But: That typewriter font is not confortable for reading, pretty slow and, most important, it has affected my phone performance. Some apps, such us Twitter and Spotify, crash almost all the time. I will move to Orbot for now. Still, is a very promising app. Keep the good work

    Did everything to get this app to work, though it ended up being a complete waste of time. I even tried to download Orbot as the Tor Browser "apparently won't work without it". That was also a waste of time, as was signing up for the Tor newsletter which I thought may help in some way. I can see that this app is installed on my mobile, though when I click on the app icon, nothing happens accept having to start this whole ordeal over and over again. What a complete waste of time.

    This App is really good, and the fact that I could easily access the Hidden Links to access an encrypted version of Facebook. Although, I still do know modern cryptography is still easy decrypt and get the data off, which of course doesnt seem to make it completely Anonymous as it is meant to be, but the software is really nice softwares and works pretty well; I like it. Nonetheless, anyone who would like to access the TOR; I would recommend this for direct access other than using Orbot/Orfox.

    Everybody already knew that they had to install orbot before using this browser, but in this update you just added inbuilt orbot vpn again? Do you know that these two cannot work simultaneously and there is no option to ignore inbuilt vpn? So this a problem for me. Another problem is the expanded notification which doesn't expand just like new orbot update... everything else works great keep up the good work!

    The Alpha version is quite useable. You'll have to sacrifice connection speed, but that's the usual price to pay for anonymity. It has one quirk: When opening a link from another App, you're taken to the browser's start page. You have to go back to your App and follow the link again.

    Cannot find proxy so I can configure it to get around EU GDPR restrctions ! I know nothing about Browsers, well enough to use NoScript, UblockOrigin etc, so I've no choice but to start learning, not that I wanted to. Pity Orbot and Orfox were sunsetted, life was so much simpler with that set up. Only one star because it does not do what I want in a simple and straight forward manner. My opinion may be (is) biased. Your experience may differ to mine.

    I had love to rate this app 5 star but yet to meet the required criteria. This project should be well integrated with the Orbot engine as there are clashes in communication between the VPN services. Also, I observed that this browser automatically stays on a static VPN ( that is; China). This should be resolved on the beta version. The excellence in this browser performance will be if the IP generated can be altered based on users interest/decision. Lastly, other applications needs full access.

    I Love it and the comments would suggest it'd be safer than Orfox for the generation largely unaware an internet beyond social networks exists. PLEASE KEEP maintaining ORBOT though, it's still essential for connecting many apps to the internet, from cryptocurrency wallets to things like Zeronet,even light browsing on I2P. If it helps,the url box at the top also acts as a search box. The captcha trap is the equivalent of the mobile browser blocking at the turn of the millenium(it'll pass).

    It's all still acceptable. The connection is fast, secure, and anonymous. The problem is I can't save image everytime I clicked "save image". I don't know if it's a bug or purposedly made like that, but if it isn't a feature then just remove the option to save image.

    Worked well before latest update. Now formerly problem-free sites display the "No video with supported format and MIME type found"! Search for solutions for android phones fruitless. Amazing disintegration of a once fantastic app. Sad, really. Even forced a star out of me just to post this!!!

    Many basic features do not work. You cannot save a photo for example. You click to save but nothing happens. even the set as wallpaper does not work. To refresh a new photo of my wife, I have to use chrome. I hate the resource usage and personal info hungry company google, but al least it works.

    Even though I had Orbot running prior to installing this app, it's asking me to start a new Tor session. This was fine on its own, but starting a new session resulted in the bootstrapping process stuck at 10%. I would recommend getting Orfox instead; it seems to be more stable.

    Latest update added orbot to tor browser. Inoperable. Trashing it and returning to orbot plus orfox for now. Thank you for working on this coders, I wish I could do what you do and have faith you'll work out the bugs. I'll check back in a few months. Thank you for helping to keep the internet freer and trying to keep the psychos from totally enslaving us.

    Updated version is garbage. OverSimplified version took away server selector. Now no longer able to connect quickly, has been sitting without proper connection for over 10 minutes. Absolutely garbage! Edit: does not connect. App is 100% useless. Stick to version 60.5.1 it's far more efficient and actually works

    Does what it's supposed to do. The only regret i have is, since this project is based on principles of freedom, users don't get to easily switch their guard relays. Also, there is perhaps no way on android to see the circuit / from which our data is travelling like in Desktop version. Other then that, bravo Torproject Team.

    The main tor browser app goes to the purple connect screen then i hit connect and the app closes and puts me back on main screen of device. Then i go to recent/running apps and there is the tor browser with no preview picture or anything.. Just empty.. Click it to get back to tor and acts like screen opens up then closes and back to home screen again.. Hope this version actually works but im doubtful.. Edit: tried opening: 25% bootstrap then same thing as main tor browser app.. Come on guys..

    Freezes and Hangs many times while commenting on Non YouTube Video sites. Encountered it on different occasions on 2 different devices models. This issue didn't occur in other browsers. Its better to use Opera,Kiwi,Firefox or any other good browser of your choice on a TOR Network rather than this browser. Experienced similar issues on Orbot Browser also.

    The best tor browser. The people complaining clearly don't know what alpha means. Explaination: It's not even in the beta stage yet. However for an app that's still early in its life it works perfectly for me not had a single problem and always feel secure when using it. Edit. A tor browser tells sites your in a different location hence the captcha problems on social network sites. If Your using this for clearnet social media your a moron. Educate yourself.

If this does come with a built in VPN, do I need to turn it on or does it turn itself on automatically? And if this does not come with a built in VPN, what free VPN app should I use? Thank you!

Onion address a simple search engine nothing could come up this is nothing but a scam and it would be stupid to use the TOR browser on your phone I was just checking it out because I have a very good VPN and other protection but come to find out it is worthless! do you not get the Tor proxy either as you do not want a free VPN! Make sure you have a good VPN!

    it was working fine for me for a day or two but the past two days it's not working and just keeps saying "orfox is starting" it's been taking a long time and still no luck

    Excellent! The new age of TOR for Android has finally arrived! Unfortunately, after installation, it shows that silly purple fox icon. Was looking forward to seeing the cool neon green world icon.

    The most unstable of the releases yet, bookmarking a page is useless, cannot conventionally select the bookmarked page, just like all Firefox based browsers, setting a home page is still dumb. Uninstalled, unusable.

    I have used it before and it worked well. However, now there is a Connection warning for every .onion I visit, and of course I want to stay secure

    Worked fine at first, then I noticed my Gmail just kept crashing every time I tried to open it. Tried multiple methods after decided to uninstall this app. "Magically", my Gmail started working again...

    DONT REPAIR WHEN ITS WORKING. It was doing fine before this update.After the update it stopped working. I don't know what the hell is wrong with Android app developers. Why you have to bombard with updates. will give 5 stars back after its repaired

    This should contain a settings menu to add tor config (torrc) lines. ( likely by integrating with orbot ). App crashing on startup on Asus Max Pro M1. Tried clearing cache, data and closing all other apps.

    It's great to be on the ground floor of what is the future of browsers. When you build a house, you start with a good foundation.That's what you have done here. I have supported TOR publicly, and financially when able, for years. Keep up the great work, people I can't wait to use the finished product!

    Great app overall, although sometimes it's very slow. Also, there's a big issue where having this app installed causes Hangouts to crash, and it's only fixed when uninstalling this.

    app is really good and has user friendly interface..but the only issue is it takes a lot of time for a website to get loaded please fix this problem and do add swipe down refresh feature.

    Permission to Collect Diagnostic information??? Ummm... no thank you. That gives you access to absolutely everything we do on our devices... including passwords and such. Horrible. Pass.

    I cannot browse a single page. I always get stuck at the captcha screen, it's never ending. I get a message, "..have detected unusual internet traffic.." on everything, regardless of the content.

    Works flawlessly, connects in seconds on android one program by google. Can switch between apps and back without issues, tabs always stay open. Always in English the preferred language in my country, lightweight and super fast.

    Just love it. Thank God for the Tor project!! You guys have done a great service to all the internet users who were susceptible to privacy violation and had no idea or option to protect themselves. Once again great job!

    Android Oreo: a nightmare compared to other Android versions. Notifications don't work properly, VPN mode for orbot works but not for this app. obsf4 binary not included, UI update is ugly and anti-functional
