Orfox – a web browser for Android that enables mobile phone users to have secure communications through the Tor network. Coupled with the Orbot app, Orfox users can have encryption and anonymity on the Internet. In addition, Orfox comes with NoScript and HTTPS Everywhere preinstalled, and a number of security settings are preselected to enhance your protection against malicious websites.
Orfox is built from the same source code as Tor Browser (which is built upon Firefox), but with a few minor modifications to the privacy enhancing features to make them compatible with Firefox for Android and the Android operating system. In as many ways as possible, we will adhere to the design goals of Tor Browser, by supporting as much of their actual code as possible, and extending their work into the additional AF-Droid components of Firefox for Android.
Orbot is 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.
Orbot and Orfox are are under development by the Guardian Project.
