• 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 **

Can’t play videos on any sites
Every time I try to play a video it doesn’t show the play button
The original Tor browser - for free!!
If you are a desktop tor user looking for the original Tor browser, you found the right one. Works flawlessly as long as you know the settings.
Beginner tip - If your site is not working, press on the shield on top left and select silver or bronze security settings.
Kudos to the developer. Urge all to contribute and fund the Tor initiative. It is the only way to safeguard yourself against the internet predators.
