Tor Project releases first alpha of Android mobile browser

"For the past year, we've been working to reach the rising number of mobile users worldwide", the Tor Project said in a tweet, so the app brings the privacy protections from the desktop version to Android devices.

As for iOS users, don't hold your breath for an official Tor release any time soon, but you can always try the Onion Browser right now.

The Tor Project, the organization behind the Tor network and the Tor Browser, launched today its first ever mobile browser with the release of the Tor Browser for Android.

Also, it comes with NoScript 10.1.9.1 and HTTPS Everywhere extensions. It is an alpha version on the other hand and that means that you should expect bugs and issues; if you need to use Tor in critical environments you are probably better off using other apps or methods for now.
