Best tor browser by far!!  phunkybass757  5 star

If you are interested in keeping your internet activity as secret as is possible for most people, Download this App!! But take your time learning how Tor works and how to better secure your data even even though your running this browser......Take it from an ex dark web “entrepreneur” who has.....well nvm I can just say that I’m sure you can truly feel free to do whatever you desire with the aid of these programs.....

Security focused apps should at least be updated to address the latest vulnerabilities and support improvements.

Best Tor browser for iphone  Unique-Horn Unicorn  5 star

Well worth the price. This is the best thing going. I used the other Tor Onion browser before, but after I paid for the ad-free version they changed it to a subscription service and raised the price! So I tried Red Onion out and it's so much better. It doesn't have the bugs that other one did. It's faster and more user-friendly.


IOS and phone service  Chiefcheeba  1 star

Can’t use the app anymore thanks to new iOS updates and phone service providers. Use to be a great app someone should update it so it’ll work again. Useless now.

It's all good!!  Mustardhot  5 star

Got the app to see just what the darknet is all about! This app is pretty good with no pop up ads like the others. It runs just fine and not slow as some people stated in with earlier versions. I'm already getting to know my way around, and would definitely recommend this app. Great!!!


Getting better  Jmzmcmsju  5 star

Thanks for great browser  Phil Astro  5 star

Great VPN browser so far


Bite me, BBC  Fxnerd  5 star

While an awful lot of these reviews seem to be from kids who need to circumvent their parents or school, rest assured that we older folk appreciate this program as well. When I need my DR. WHO or SHERLOCK fix a little earlier than BBC america would like, and without all the commercials, this little app makes it possible. Works like a champ.


Eh, could be better  MrPeery  3 star

I spent about 2 bucks on this app....yep, spent money on a so-called "secure" browser; which by the way, blocks certain sites because of my IP provided by "Tor" connection itself. Yelp of all websites is blocked. A review site. It won't connect me. Come in guys, can this be fixed? You are advertised as a very good private secure web browser and I'd expect to get something out of what I payed because normally, I wouldn't pay for a browser of all things. Update?

I enjoy this app very much. It is my "Go To" app whenever I want to use the Tor network. This app works very well. Loads fast. Highly recommended.


Nice Tor app  DellaTheCow  5 star

Be patient the first time you load it - the initial connection takes a while. After that it's much faster.
