Orbot – a free proxy app that empowers other apps to use the internet more securely. Orbot uses Tor to encrypt your Internet traffic and then hides it by bouncing through a series of computers around the world.

Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security known as traffic analysis. Orbot creates a truly private mobile internet connection.

This tool is used to keep the communications of users anonymized and hidden from governments and third parties that might be monitoring their internet traffic.

Features:
– private web surfing
– private chat messaging
– privacy on Twitter
– privacy for apps
– universal mode
– open-source

Orbot can be configured to transparently proxy all of your Internet traffic through Tor. You can also choose which specific apps you want to use through Tor.
