Signal and Telegram require phone numbers. Does using either app over the Tor network using apps like orbot risk anonymity? If orbot can be used as a proxy or vpn for a whole android system, does that increase risks? Or does the fact that the messages may or may not be encrypted also impact the situation?

Where would I go to find the answer to such questions for myself?

  • Your questions aren't clear to me. What does Tor have to do with these apps requiring phone numbers? And what do you mean by "anonymity"? Anonymity from whom?
