• Internet access tunneled over the Tor network:
- Websites do not see your real IP address.
- All browsing is encrypted before it leaves your device, protecting your data on insecure wireless networks.
- Bypass restrictive firewalls: you can access the entire Internet from behind ISP/corporate connections that filter websites, or when inside regions that practice online censorship. (See CONNECTIVITY NOTE below.)
- Access websites on the "dark net" of anonymous .onion web sites, only accessible in the Tor network.
• Defeat online tracking: change IP address and clear cookies/history/cache/HTML5 storage in one button.
• User-Agent spoofing option can hide the fact that you are using an iPhone/iPad.
• Ability to block third party cookies or all cookies.
See onionbrowser.com for more information & privacy caveats.
PERFORMANCE NOTE: web browsing through the anonymization network will be SIGNIFICANTLY SLOWER than through a non-tunneled browser.
CONNECTIVITY NOTE: App does NOT function in China, Iran, and other locations known to employ Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) censorship technology to block Tor connections.
Onion Browser is open-source software and relies on other projects including The Tor Project. The developer encourages users to donate to the Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation to support Tor and to the cause of online privacy rights. See onionbrowser.com for more information.
