The Official Tor Browser for iOS Has Gone Free – Download it Now!
The official Tor browser for iOS, otherwise known as Onion Browser, has gone free for iPhone and iPad users.
Onion Browser Encrypts Your Presence on the Web for a Safer Browsing Experience
Safety and privacy are key these days. So much in fact that users try to avoid using public WiFi networks where they can, with the fear that someone might be snooping on them. You can take a bunch of routes to safeguard your presence online. One of them involves using a VPN, or a Tor-enabled browser. The latter is all the rage among power-users, and the official offering of Tor browser on iOS goes by the name of Onion Browser.
Onion Browser is the original open-source Tor-powered browser for iOS. Onion Browser helps you bypass censorship and access the internet with more safety and privacy.
Once you download and install Onion Browser, launch it, you will be connected to the Tor network after a few seconds. Rest assured that the connection established is absolutely secure, and no one will be able to track your IP address at all.
One important thing though - not every country is open to the idea of Tor. While no one is able to track anything, but some regions have blocked Tor connections to take place. This means you won't be able to connect to a Tor server in order to secure your place online. Thankfully, Onion Browser has built-in methods to bypass blockages put in place by governments so you can go online absolutely safe still.
Despite all that, there is a possibility that Onion might not work at all for you if there are extremely strict measures placed online in your region.
Download Tor Browser for iOS From App Store
Onion Browser will set you back $0.99 on a regular day, but the developer behind it has taken down that price tag. Interestingly, there are other Tor browsers available on the App Store that claim to do what Onion does, but beware, they're just ripoffs and offer no real benefit.
I highly recommend giving Onion a try right now if you care about safety and privacy online. It's a great way to get around the Internet without ever coming in the line of sight of Sauron.
