Tor Project ha rilasciato la App Tor anche per cellulari Android in versione stabile. La app si chiama Tor Browser 8.5. Grazie alla rete Tor, la connessione viene dirottata su una rete che permette di raggiungere il servizio che vogliamo raggiungere senza che questo sappia chi siamo e da dove ci connettiamo. Tor Browser è basato su Mozilla Firefox, di cui mantiene alcune funzioni come la navigazione a schede.
Tor Browser 8.5 is now available from the Tor Browser download page and also from our distribution directory. The Android version is also available from Google Play and should be available from F-Droid within the next day. This release features important security updates to Firefox.
After months of work and including feedback from our users, Tor Browser 8.5 includes our first stable release for Android plus many new features across platforms.
Tor Browser 8.5 is the first stable release for Android. Since we released the first alpha version in September, we’ve been hard at work making sure we can provide the protections users are already enjoying on desktop to the Android platform. Mobile browsing is increasing around the world, and in some parts, it is commonly the only way people access the internet. In these same areas, there is often heavy surveillance and censorship online, so we made it a priority to reach these users.
We made sure there are no proxy bypasses, that first-party isolation is enabled to protect you from cross-site tracking, and that most of the fingerprinting defenses are working. While there are still feature gaps between the desktop and Android Tor Browser, we are confident that Tor Browser for Android provides essentially the same protections that can be found on desktop platforms. Note: Though we cannot bring an official Tor Browser to iOS due to restrictions by Apple, the only app we recommend is Onion Browser, developed by Mike Tigas with help from the Guardian Project.
