Internet privacy is huge concern these days, especially with the increase of network surveillance software on more and more computers. TheTorProject brings its privacy experience to your mobile phone with Orbot: Proxy with Tor. Once you open up the app, just tap and hold the rather large power button for a few seconds to turn on safe internet navigation. Orbot works by encrypting your traffic information, so you don’t have to worry about Big Brother or anyone checking out what you’re doing. Orbot also features the option to encrypt all net traffic from all of your apps.
Orbot is a small, quick download and very easy to set-up. The Tor Bridge option lets you encrypt your traffic in networks that block Tor traffic. It currently supports a large host of international languages, with more frequently being added. The app runs in the background.
Orbot doesn’t work with every device, sometimes refusing to open or function correctly in some devices. There are only a few privacy settings available.
