Orbot

Enhance your privacy, break through firewalls and communicate more safely.

Tor is both software and an open network that helps you defend against network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships.

Orbot allows access to Tor by accessing a local SOCKS or HTTP proxy. On a rooted device, the proxying can be completely transparent i.e. the app that accesses the network need not be aware of the proxy's existence; you can choose which apps go via the proxy in the settings.

If you don't have root access, there are some apps that are designed to work closely with tor or allow proxied connections: ChatSecure, Lightning and Twidere. There is also a proxy configurator addon for Firefox called ProxyMob (not yet available from the Mozilla addon site).

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
