Even after jailbreaking an iOS device, I'm unaware of any way to run Tor Browser on it. However, you can approximate Tor Browser on Apple's iOS with the open source Onion Browser, by Mike Tigas. Onion Browser will use the Tor network for transport. Onion Browser is not a Tor Project app. That said, it does appear to be developed and distributed with ...

You could try Onion Browser. It's worth noting that this isn't an official release from the Tor Project so there's no guarantee of what you're getting. The source code is available so at least you can review that if you're interested. See this Tor Stack Exchange question for some discussion.

As long this these issues are open... Caveats: HTML5 <video> tags will leak <video>-related DNS queries and data transfer outside of Tor. Javascript cannot be disabled, HTML5 Geolocation API cannot be disabled. I'd say: Okay for circumvention, when anonymity isn't desired. Okay for adding hay to the haystack (Tor). Your contribution ...

By default Tor listens on this port. However you of course need to have Tor up and running, else you won't be able to connect anywhere. If you set this proxy and Tor is running on a device it will connect through Tor. If you don't set the proxy your browser (or any other application) won't be using Tor at all. No anonymity will be provided, because Tor might ...

It is not an official product by the Tor Project, and I would recommend against its use. Tor official products are not on sale. They are free of charge.

If you just want to be able to visit .onion sites, you can use a tor2web proxy like onion.cab or onion.to. (Note that your anonymity relies on your trust to the proxy provider.) I was never able to run a Tor-client on any of my apple products. One thing you could try is running a virtual machine on your iPhone (->Android) and then run the Tor-client inside ...

This app was already identified as fake. In the public bug tracker you'll find report #10549. A complaint was filed at 26th December 2013. It is unclear how and when Apple will react. I can only recommend to not use this app.

As you've written it isn't an official application, so that means that it can have security bugs which won't be addressed by the core Tor team. We don't know how to verify the security of the included versions of Orbot and Vidalia - they pass check.torproject.org, but without analysing the source code there's no way to ensure there isn't a gap anywhere that ...

Sebastian advised you to use the meek transport. However you can also use the current version of Tor browser. This has support for a new protocol called obfs4. Just use the dropdown menu at the green onion and at network settings choose obfs4 as transport type. As far as I know obfs4 bridges work quite good inside China. The older protocol obfs3 usually ...

Bridges are a way to make a connection not directly with the Tor network, but using a server that isn't part of the official network even tho it runs Tor. Unfortunately, they don't work in China. What does work as far as I know is the meek transport. You can get it by using the normal Tor Browser. Here's the documentation for how it works.

The Tor Browser is not an application for an iPod touch. The applications on Tor's website that are available currently are only supported by Windows Computers, Apple Computers, and Linux Computers. There are applications for Android on the Google Play Store that are really well done as well. I am not familiar with any apps on the App Store that will connect ...

There are now many Tor Browsers on the iOS App Store, some are clones/forks of the open source Onion Browser. To address your release cycle question, iOS apps currently have a two week review period. On top of that a new tor version would have to be incorporated into the app and tested, so it will be three weeks to release. That said, iOS owners update ...
