I use briar as a messenger and also use orbot system wide with vpn mode switched on. I was wondering if this created tor over tor scenario?

It totally depends on the under-the-hood configuration of the tools you've mentioned. It can happen, yes. But it's not the only way how it can be working.

  • I have orbot configured stock, would a way around this be to select every application besides briar on the VPN allow list on orbot? Feb 10, 2022 at 0:42
  • yes, it's one of the right ways for sure

  • Brilliant, thanks. I seen on orbot github github.com/guardianproject/orbot/pull/514/… it has been hardcoded into the application. But it still shows up on the whitelist below, for example for browser dosent show on the VPN list in orbot. Feb 10, 2022 at 11:09
