Red Onion - Tor-powered web browser for anonymous browsing and darknet Reviews


Great tool  Subscription-not  5 star

Does not handle all data types, e.g. flash, but this is likely due to security concerns. For quick work, it is solid if you can get connected to Tor successfully.

No response from developer.  jack_hamm3r  4 star

good app. however, no response from developer when emailed regarding certain in app issues in particular not being able to access the copy, select, select all, speak, etc menu when text is selected/highlighted within a web page. not even a reply to acknowledge sent email and that the issue is being looked into or an explanation as to why the functions aren’t working = i’m disappointed. the techs over at tor project reply on the spot.

Not as good as free onion browser  ----------------------d  2 star

I tried using the free onion browser before getting this one. One of the key things I wanted to be able to do was download files to my phone. However, in all other respects the general performance/usability for web browsing is not as good as the free onion browser. I've found that I tend to use that one instead whenever I don't need to download something. Even when I do use red onion, it is often so hard to actually download whatever I wanted to download that I typically just give up. My suggestion is just use the free onion browser.


Useless.  yarkanlik  1 star

Security is important but first you need to open the websites, this browser try to connect tor server and then just stays like that.

Stay away  Zap B.  1 star

I am not usually suckered by a scammy app, but credit to red onion for getting $2 out of me. This app has not been updated in a year and does not work. It crashes instantly upon launch. Do not download.

Needs security fixes, DON'T RELY ON THIS FOR STRONG ANONYMITY  poobop boy  3 star

Keep in mind this is a third party (not endorsed by the Tor Project) application. One of the first things I noticed was that it uses BING of all things as the default search engine, not DuckDuckGo, Searx, or StartPage but BING. Bing and Google are absolute no-no's for anonymity. In order to use this even remotely securely you have to change the default search engine, use user agent spoofing (keep in mind websites can see the size of your screen and use this to identify you), and disable all javascript, also have all other apps closed and unconnected to the internet (which is impossible on an iphone). Furthermore your phone likely spies on you and keeps logs of your activity. How do download an app onto your phone? Your real ID and credit card. Already Apple (which by the way the NSA has direct access to its central servers, see PRISM) knows YOU use this app. Also max security features are still "experimental". It would be great to see the Tor project actually endorse this app, but it needs to be free. DO NOT RELY ON THIS FOR STRONG ANONYMITY. Most of these things are not the fault of the developers. But seriously, don't use Bing and spoof user agent. Also the options for MAC address spoofing and changing the size of the screen to match default Tor settings would be great. Even better would be the option to shut down all background applications and notifications so that all traffic on the device was connected exclusively to this app. All in all this is probably the best Tor app for iOS. It is far better than just using Safari for protecting your human rights. Also get Signal or Telegram and use that instead of SMS or 'Messages' if you really want to invoke your right to privacy (and it is a human right according to the UN). Also, on the subject of abuse: don't use Tor for immoral or immoral and illegal things. And also do not clog the network with massive file downloads unless you are getting content restricted in your country. We need more normal people to use Tor in their day to day lives. Too many people have been conditioned to (albeit unknowingly) quote Joseph Gorbells in saying, "If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear". No, the fourth amendment was written to protect not the guilty but the innocent. Mass surveillance is a violation of your constitutional and human rights. Your ISP should not legally be allowed to sell your internet history to advertisers. Use Tor everyday, resist mass surveillance. Report immoral activity and abuses if Tor to the authorities if and when you see them. Get your friends and family members to use Tor. Donate to the Tor project! Be responsible and if you use iOS a lot, give this app a whirl!


Don’t Use It!  AphrodisiacDuo  1 star

This app has not been updated. Updates are important in the tor community. And as current time its been one year since the last one. Security is important, don’t look over your shoulder. This developer has hardly released updates since initial release. Nevertheless, updating should be a few times a year, not one.

Wish I didn’t buy this  Jp Staclz  1 star

I spent $2 on this app. I RARELY pay for apps. But the description for this app was what I was looking for. But every time I open it up. It says connecting, goes to 80% and hangs. Never connects. Waste of $2 a bit upset.
