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 16.0.2-RC-1
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 older versionsfrom 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 onlyapp that creates a truly private internet connection. As the NewYork Times writes, “when a communication arrives from Tor, you cannever know where or whom it’s from.” Tor won the 2012 ElectronicFrontier Foundation (EFF) Pioneer Award.★ ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTES:Orbot is the safest way to use the Internet on Android. Period.Orbot bounces your encrypted traffic several times throughcomputers around the world, instead of connecting you directly likeVPNs and proxies.

OONI Probe 1.3.2
Collect evidence of Internet censorship. Measure the speed andperformance of your network. Play an active role in increasingtransparency of information controls around the world.By runningOONI Probe, you will examine the blocking of websites, yournetwork's speed and performance, and whether systems that could beresponsible for censorship and surveillance are in yournetwork.These tests have been developed by the Open Observatory ofNetwork Interference (OONI), a free software project (under The TorProject) that aims to uncover Internet censorship around theworld.Since 2012, OONI has collected millions of networkmeasurements across more than 190 countries, shedding light onmultiple cases of network interference. By running OONI Probe, youwill help increase transparency of Internet censorship around theworld.Collecting evidence of Internet censorshipOONI's WebConnectivity test is designed to examine whether access to sites isblocked through DNS tampering, TCP/IP blocking, or by a transparentHTTP proxy. By running this test, you will collect data that canserve as evidence of Internet censorship, and you will be providedwith circumvention tips.Detecting systems responsible forcensorship and surveillanceOONI's HTTP Invalid Request Line test isdesigned to uncover the presence of systems that could beresponsible for censorship and surveillance.Measuring the speed andperformance of your networkOONI's implementation of the NetworkDiagnostic Test (NDT) measures the speed of your network byconnecting to M-Lab servers near you and by collecting low levelTCP/IP information that can help characterize the speed andperformance of your network.Open dataOONI publishes all networkmeasurement data that it collects because open data allows thirdparties to conduct independent studies, verify OONI findings and/orto answer other research questions. Such data also helps increasetransparency of Internet censorship around the world. All data ispublished on OONI Explorer:http://explorer.ooni.torproject.org/Free softwareAll OONI tests,as well as its NDT implementation, are based on free and opensource software. You can find the source code through the followinglink: http://github.com/thetorproject/ooniprobe-androidFollow uson Twitter: http://twitter.com/OpenObservatoryPlease note: RunningOONI Probe might be against the terms of service of your ISP orlegally questionable in your country. By running OONI Probe youwill connect to web services which may be banned, and use webcensorship circumvention methods such as Tor. The OONI project willpublish data submitted by probes, possibly including your IPaddress or other identifying information. In addition, your use ofOONI Probe will be clear to anyone who has access to your computer,and to anyone who can monitor your Internet connection (such asyour employer, ISP or government).
