What is Tor, how does it work:

Why use this?

Most would use Tor for anonymity (Businesses, Journalist, Activists, Bloggers etc) and used with a mobile this is about as anonymous you can get, especially if searching using DuckDuckGo. However this also defeats aggressive firewalls at work or abroad.

I found this while trying to get through a particularly aggressive firewall filter (it even filtered search engines and Google.com with all it's services.) I noticed the firewall would recognise attempts to direct access via a VPN, but once connected to the Tor, it was able to create a VPN which would then passthough the firewall and everything was accessable. Naturally browsing becomes a little slower, but apps work great.

Simply download and start, if necessary touch the VPN button, once active, it works with all your apps and browsers.

Description

Orbot is a free 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.

Also available at iTunes
(Note this is unofficial and not supported by the Guardian Project, who have no idea about it's existence, so use with caution.)

Whilst the Android version is official, the iOS version doesn't seem to be

There would appear to be no association with justkodding.com - which host Orbot (Tob) and the Tor Project on iTunes.
The Tor Project only support Android https://guardianproject.info/apps/orbot/

I am unable to view the code in the Apple version to compare it with the original and cannot be 100% certain it is identical, I have tweeted @guardianproject to discover if they can confirm the source code is identical on the Apple App.

TWEET UPDATE FROM THE GUARDIAN PROJECT
Torbot on Apple? What do you mean? Orbot is on Google Play, not Apple. For iPhones, please use Onion Browser app.
