We all love Tor Browser for a lot of reasons. For starters, it is most certainly the best way to browse anonymously on the internet. Sadly, the major chunks of the perks the browser offers have so far been limited to the desktop version as there was no official Android app to provide us with the same features.
Finally, it is good news for the lovers of Tor as the first official Alpha version of the app has made it to the Google Play Store.
Though the stable release will take no less than 4 or 5 months and will be released in 2019, you can get your hands of the alpha right away (the download link is at the end of the post).
Tor Browser for Android: Full features
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
Prevent someone watching your connection from knowing what websites you visit. All anyone monitoring your browsing habits can see is that you’re using Tor.
Tor aims to make all users look the same, so Tor Browser for Android makes it difficult for you to be fingerprinted based on your browser and device information.
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.
With Tor Browser for Android, you are free to access sites your local internet service provider may have blocked.
