“The best Tor-related offering on iOS right now is Onion Browser” - The Daily Dot, October 14, 2015.

• Browse the internet over Tor:
- Protect your privacy from website tracking
- Secure your traffic from insecure wireless networks and ISPs
- Support for HTTPS Everywhere, an automatic switch to HTTPS enabled websites
- Access .onion sites that are only accessible over Tor.
• Fight online tracking: block scripts and automatically clear cookies and tabs, based on your preferences.
• And more privacy-enhancing features!
- Web browsing is much slower than through a normal web browser or a VPN because your traffic is encrypted and relayed through the Tor network.
- Multimedia often bypass Tor and compromise your privacy; video files and video streams are blocked by default and are not supported by Onion Browser.
- Onion Browser might not work on networks with advanced network restrictions. If the app does not connect, try using bridges (or a different type of bridge), force-quit, and then restart the app.
- Use of Onion Browser is at your own risk; remember that sensitive data does not always belong on a mobile device.
** Onion Browser is free and open-source software. You can read more about Onion Browser and how to support development of Tor on iOS by visiting onionbrowser.com **
- Fixed a problem with the meek-azure bridge and the MOAT service to fetch new bridges.
- Updated Thai translation.
Ratings and Reviews
Smells like Vidalia
Nice Tor bundle, seems to be working fine. But please (pretty please, with sugar on tor - I mean, on top), add tabbed browsing.
Some built-in controls would be nice, too (for example, "get a new IP" is a great feature to have).
Works perfect on iphone 6+.
Please add an option that allows you to set up passwords/patterns/pin-lock to open the app.
Simple to use and completely free
