Orfox: Tor Browser for Android Fennec-52.9.0esr/TorBrowser-7.5-1/Orfox-1.5.4-RC-1
Orfox is built from the same source code as Tor Browser (which isbuilt upon Firefox), but with a few minor modifications to theprivacy enhancing features to make them compatible with Firefox forAndroid and the Android operating system.Orfox REQUIRES Orbot appfor Android to connect to the Tor network.In as many ways aspossible, we adhere to the design goals of Tor Browser(http://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser/design/), bysupporting as much of their actual code as possible, and extendingtheir work into the additional Android components of Firefox forAndroid.** Also, includes NoScript and HTTPSEverywhere add-onsbuilt in!The Tor software protects you by bouncing yourcommunications around a distributed network of relays run byvolunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching yourInternet connection from learning what sites you visit, it preventsthe sites you visit from learning your physical location, and itlets you access sites which are blocked.Learn moreat:http://guardianproject.info/apps/orfox* * How is Orfoxdifferent than Tor Browser for desktop?* The Orfox code repositoryis at http://github.com/guardianproject/tor-browser and the TorBrowser repository ishere:http://gitweb.torproject.org/tor-browser.git/. The Orfoxrepository is a fork of the Tor Browser repository with thenecessary modification and Android-specific code as patches on topof the Tor Browser work. We will keep our repository in sync withupdates and release of Tor Browser.* Orfox is built from the TorBrowser repo based on ESR38(http://dev.guardianproject.info/issues/5146http://dev.guardianproject.info/news/221)and has only two modified patches that were not relevant ornecessary for Android* Orfox does not currently include the mobileversions of the Tor Browser * Button, but this we will be addedshortly, now that we have discovered how to properly supportautomatic installation of extensions on Android(http://dev.guardianproject.info/issues/5360)* Orfox currentlyallows for users to bookmark sites, and may have additional datawritten to disk beyond what the core gecko browser component does.We are still auditing all disk write code, and determining how toappropriately disable or harden it.(http://dev.guardianproject.info/issues/5437)* * How is Orfoxdifferent than Orweb?Orweb is our current default browser forOrbot/Tor mobile users (http://guardianproject.info/apps/orweb)that has been downloaded over 2 million times. It is VERY VERYSIMPLE, as it only has one tab, no bookmark capability, and anextremely minimal user experience.Orweb is built upon the bundledWebView (Webkit) browser component inside of the Android operatingsystem. This has proven to be problematic because we cannot controlthe version of that component, and cannot upgrade it directly whenbugs are found. In addition, Google has made it very difficult toeffectively control the network proxy settings of all aspects ofthis component, making it difficult to guarantee that traffic willnot leak on all devices and OS versions.Orweb also only provides avery limited amount of capability of Tor Browser, primarily relatedto reducing browser fingerprinting, minimizing disk writes, andcookie and history management. It trys to mimic some of thesettings of Tor Browser, but doesn’t actually use any of the actualcode written for Tor Browser security hardening.
Orbot: Proxy with Tor 16.0.5-RC-2-tor-0.3.4.9
Orbot is a free proxy app that empowers other apps to use theinternet more securely. Orbot uses Tor to encrypt your Internettraffic and then hides it by bouncing through a series of computersaround the world. Tor is free software and an open network thathelps you defend against a form of network surveillance thatthreatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential businessactivities and relationships, and state security known as trafficanalysis. *** Android 4.0 and lower, you can download olderversions from http://guardianproject.info/releases/ or through theFDroid.org open app store at http://f-droid.org. The last releasewith KitKat and older support is:http://guardianproject.info/releases/Orbot-v14.1.4-UpToKitKat-nonPIE.apk*** *** SAMSUNG GALAXY USERS *** On some devices, aSamsung app islistening on the same network port that Orbot needs. Download'SockStat' from Google Play. Look for the app on port 9050. Forcestop and disable that app. You can also try to change Orbot's "TorSOCKS" setting under the Debug section to 9051 or AUTO. You can seethe fix in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yK-nK4F67_g***** Orbot is the only app that creates a truly private internetconnection. As the New York Times writes, “when a communicationarrives from Tor, you can never know where or whom it’s from.” Torwon the 2012 Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) Pioneer Award. ★ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTES: Orbot is the safest way to use the Interneton Android. Period. Orbot bounces your encrypted traffic severaltimes through computers around the world, instead of connecting youdirectly like VPNs and proxies.

OONI Probe 2.0.0
Are websites and social media apps blocked? Is your networkunusually slow? Run OONI Probe to find out! With this app, you willexamine the blocking of websites and instant messaging apps,measure your network's speed and performance, and check whethersystems that could be responsible for censorship and surveillanceare in your network. OONI Probe is developed by the OpenObservatory of Network Interference (OONI), a free software project(under The Tor Project) that aims to uncover internet censorshiparound the world. Since 2012, OONI’s global community has collectedmillions of network measurements from more than 200 countries,shedding light on multiple cases of network interference. Collectevidence of internet censorship You can check whether and howwebsites and instant messaging apps are blocked. The networkmeasurement data you will collect may serve as evidence of internetcensorship. Detect systems responsible for censorship andsurveillance OONI Probe tests are also designed to uncover thepresence of systems (middleboxes) that could be responsible forcensorship and surveillance. Measure the speed and performance ofyour network You can measure the speed and performance of yournetwork by running OONI's implementation of the Network DiagnosticTest (NDT). You can also measure video streaming performance withthe Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) test. Open dataOONI publishes network measurement data because open data allowsthird parties to verify OONI findings, conduct independent studies,and answer other research questions. Openly publishing OONI dataalso helps increase transparency of internet censorship around theworld. You can explore and download OONI data here:http://ooni.io/data/ Free software All OONI Probe tests (includingour NDT and DASH implementations), are based on free and opensource software. You can find OONI software projects on GitHub:http://github.com/ooni. Curious to learn how OONI Probe testswork?
