I'm trying to set Orbot up not to exit in certain countries, eg, United States. However, if I set it to exclude United States or similar, Orbot refuses to connect to Tor.

I've tried to apply TLD's (.us), ISO 3166-formatted country codes, short- and longnames both with and without quotes, but still no luck.

If the idea is to only exclude single fingerprints, then it's going to take a while to exclude them all.

Any suggestions?

Orbot v15.4.1-RC-1-multi on Android 7.1.2


You need to use curly brackets like this:


The syntax corresponds to the one of ExcludeNodes in torrc.

  • I thought it would be {uk} but you're correct, countries codes are according to ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 so {gb} is the way to go.
