Red onion - tor-powered web browser for anonymous browsing and darknet
Description
Red onion is a unique browser that lets you access the Internet privately and anonymously. With Red onion you can bypass corporate, school, public wifi internet filters and access the entire Internet without restrictions with complete security. Not only that with the built downloader you can freely download without ever revealing your true identity or IP address. Red onion is a full-fledged tor-powered browser that offers you a REAL solution, with multiple tabs, customizable start screen, built in ad-blocker, history, bookmarks, and much much more. Features: - Internet access tunneled over the tor network - Websites do not see your real IP address - Access the entire Internet from behind corporate/ISP/national internet filters and censors - Auto clean up of cookies on exit - Reset history/tabs/etc on restart (App Settings > Full Reset or Always Full Reset options for flexibility) - Access websites on the "dark net" of anonymous .onion web sites, only accessible through tor - Multiple tabs, Bookmarks & History - Supports Do Not Track - Start screen with the most frequent visited history entry's - Real-time search in your browsing history, bookmarks and tabs - Search engine integration in the Address bar - Share URL's via Twitter, Mail, Google+ - Search in the webpage - Download files by just tapping the link or "long press" the link to Force Download it - Simultaneous downloads (App Settings > Concurrent Downloads - default is set to 3 for performance can be changed to max of 5) - User-Agent spoofing - Ad-block (for most ad-networks) - Passcode lock and Touch ID support (NEW!) - File Manager - Preview Apple supported format right from within the app or "Open in..." others app on your device. - Multi format video/audio player allows you to play almost any video and audio format without leaving the app (wmv, mpeg, mpeg1, mpeg2, mpeg4, 3gp, sf, avi, divx, dv, gxf, m2p, m2ts, m2v, m4v, mkv, moov, mov, mp4, mpg, mpv, mt2s, mts, mxf, ogm, ogv, ps, qt, ts, vob, webm, wm, mp3, m4a, wma). - Address bar search engine options (Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo, StartPage can be changed App Settings > Search Engine) - Extract audio from mp4 files (convert to mp3) - Robust File Manager - m3u8 streams over tor.

Block HTTP referrer - (NEW!) Cloud backup optional (off my default) - (NEW!) Unzip/Untar - (NEW!)

Not worth paying for
by Blayckon on 2019/08/13 20:36
Not optimized for iPhone X and probably some other iPhones as well, missing features and poor maintenance from the developer.
Works Flawlessly
by minniemaiqq on 2019/08/09 15:19
This is the only app that I have found so far that actually works. It stays connected and I’m able to surf the web . TYTYTY
Schnozola
by Znose on 2019/08/05 20:57
-Download understanding the following. -App has been neglected by Developers & no Updates since I downloaded it, about 1.5 years ago -This IS NOT TOR!!! Apple has yet to allow their iOS or phones to use TOR. -When App “sticks” at a %, I found success by closing it, re-opening it(May need to do this a couple of times) -Since this App is NOT TOR, and NOT a VPN, I urge anyone using it to be extraordinarily vigilant and to NOT search the “Dark Web” for any Sites that may be “sensitive”, so to speak! -Only use DuckDuckGo or Disconnect for Search Engines>all the others know and almost, assuredly, sell your Info! -I use it as alternative to Safari which I find very “leaky”
Please remove old version so others don’t end up with old
by Iwtnf99$$ on 2019/07/21 22:08
Upset because I just purchased only to find there is a new version two minutes after purchasing
5 Stars
by IAmBigDarrell on 2019/07/16 11:42
Best Tor Browser for iOS
broken for a while now
by VDNYC on 2019/07/06 00:03
desperately needs an update. the app has been unable to establish an initial connection for a couple weeks now. other tor browsers continue to work fine.
Won’t work
by Chargor on 2019/06/29 05:38
Waste of the money
Great interface, definitely recommend combining with a VPN
by bobdole828 on 2019/06/22 00:00
I tried the product out and ended up delving deeper than I intended. The Tor network bridges failed a few times, had to remember to copy paste... I don’t like how much analytics are collected. But it’s encrypted well enough. Thanks for the extra security.
Great tool
by Subscription-not on 2019/06/21 17:49
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.
Stopped working
by disappointedNdallas on 2019/06/18 05:14
It stopped working. It tries to load but thats about it
Needs to be compatible with Xs and Max
by Irushsjdlg on 2019/06/17 05:40
Looks weirder without compatibility and also needs tor V3
Fast great browser
by kev080909 on 2019/06/15 15:37
I like how quick it connects,,
DO NOT USE!
by A. Chadwick on 2019/06/14 20:48
His app hasn’t been updated in over 3 years. That is a lifetime in developer-world. This app is subsequently insecure and broken. AVOID!!!
Good but could use some features
by WilliamVincent on 2019/06/07 17:18
Very good and secure, could use some features such as dark mode, iPhone X support, etc Anyways good app
Bad influence
by Payton1405 on 2019/05/14 16:58
No restrictions on anything bad influence and can be used for misdeeds
So far so good
by 29199019 on 2019/05/05 12:37
No complaints. Serves its purpose.
Plz update

Where is the mobile data and Wi-Fi download function set?
Worthless
by Disappointed consumer #2567 on 2019/04/24 16:55
Can’t even search up anything before the robot check comes out , I never got to browse just because captcha keeps popping up before I search and it never approves the check it just loads again after completing , thinking about a refund
Awesome app that works like it’s suppose to!
by DJB in OKC on 2019/04/21 14:35
I have been through four or five other TOR browsers and I just had issue after issue with them and it was just a big pain in the butt so I abandoned the whole TOR deal altogether for a year or so. Finally I decided to jump back in and after digging around a while I found “Red Browser”. I downloaded it and took it for a spin and I’m really glad I did. It actually did what it was suppose to without locking up or glitching me to the nut-house. It worked smoothly and just made it fun again and you could focus on what you want to be doing and not trying to figure out glitches and stuff. It is a super-solid program and would recommend it to everyone. By the way I do know software pretty well. I was a beta tester back in the 80’s for Microsoft’s big VB6 campaign and launch. Enjoy Red Browser, it was coded right!! DJB
Worked great 1st few weeks
by Dem outlet on 2019/04/10 22:52
Now doesn’t connect or it sits for 10 mins save your money
Works great
by SilkySmoothRoad on 2019/03/17 06:25
Best Tor browser on the App Store.
Can’t play videos in it
by cehoofe on 2019/03/15 18:18
Something I like is that the app is really fast that’s for sure but it doesn’t let me play videos
Works very well.
by Igdujgf on 2019/03/05 01:07
I tried the free ones with no luck. Red Browser has consistently worked well with no problems.
Very Slow
by joestru123 on 2019/02/18 16:10
The app generally take 5+ minutes to open and downloads can take 30-45 minutes. Please let me know how to speed those up.
Need Update

Ripped off
by Musclenerd80 on 2019/01/30 05:02
The thing won’t load. Does absolutely nothing.
DONT USE
by jay51801 on 2019/01/06 13:07
keylogs everything you used and compromises accounts.
The best one of all!
by Kelr0k on 2018/12/16 13:23
Top-Notch! And Red is the most advanced of all the ones that try to do this thing! Wow!
Please make it fit the screens of the newer phone
by Labhustle on 2018/12/14 08:25
Please, your app was successful in its own way and would have been quadruple the intake from sales if more care and updates came. It’s a shame, the only one I like.
It stays at 5%
by joe_john3 on 2018/12/12 22:37
It never loads past that. I tried going through a different tor, hard restart, everything I know to do and still it never gets past 5% even after waiting close to an hour
Good app ‘worth the purchase ‘
by Kellzconn on 2018/11/05 19:03
Didn’t expect it to be this good when i first saw it on the app store...but-am glad I purchase it and impressed.
Great app. Great developer.
by Bookfad on 2018/11/04 22:33
This app is great and superior to safari in almost every way. I had a problem where a feature wouldn’t work, but I emailed the developer and he responded THE SAME DAY with a solution. I’d highly recommend this app.
Anonymous?
by Shell56 on 2018/10/15 11:05
I don’t believe it is anonymous. When I use it, white pin in a day I will get porn spam friend requests in Fakebook. I have a cloaking blanket for sale also, it must work because I said it does.
Good stuff
by Ethnomethodology on 2018/10/14 22:37
Seems to work fine. Glad I have it.
No updates in two years

Works fine on my iPad but is useless on the iPhone now.
Good app

The app works fine.
The worst two dollars I’ve spent In my whole entire life.
by xbrenden on 2018/09/04 21:01
Who ever made this app should go kill them selves
Do NOT buy this app!!
by isnsisjsdishidbdsjd on 2018/08/25 03:30
At first, I was gullible and trusted the reviews but after I bought it, it went all glitchy and didn’t even load websites. I had to request a refund cause I wasted my money on garbage and I want it back!
Greedy developer
by Nikcanon on 2018/08/20 22:56
Instead of updating app, developer makes it so you pay for the first one and the update, but the update is designed as a whole new app, don’t waste your time on this one.
Fail
by •holy_priest• on 2018/08/06 04:33
Not Working, no connection to tor network
Lags very bad. Sometimes doesn’t connect
by Let Justice Be Done on 2018/08/04 18:30
This browser used to work OK, but now it takes forever just to connect and sometimes doesn’t connect at all. Going to the webpage for support was not helpful either. Devs, please update this app and fix these connectivity issues.
No privacy

Please give me a refund
Nice but forgot password
by DeepThoughtBrony on 2018/07/10 01:36
This is a really nice app but I forgot my password and it doesn’t give any way to recover it, so now it’s totally useless to me. It needs someway to reset or recover a password or something, imo. I hope the developers see this and have a solution.
This is fun lol
by Renegade Mastah on 2018/07/08 16:41
Very fun experience
Way to slow
by TheRevoew on 2018/07/05 20:41
It is so slow for two dollars there are much better free browser that are touch id secured
Garbage
by Manduck2k3 on 2018/05/30 23:23
Never trust a $2 app for privacy!
Malicious Software...?
by Jude450 on 2018/05/23 22:55
Once I downloaded this, the incognito mode on my google chrome app stopped working. The app wouldn’t let me use the Incognito feature without doing the not-a-robot test that they give you when starting some sort of account online. I looked up the reason for this and it could have been from malicious software on my phone. I deleted the red onion app and restarted my phone and everything was fine in google chrome.
How can I use Chinese?

BADLY OUTDATED - DON'T USE THIS APP!
by tabaks on 2018/05/06 15:21
THIS APPLICATION IS BADLY OUTDATED! BY USING IT YOU WOULD ALMOST CERTAINLY BE EXPOSED TO ALL TOR VULNERABILITIES WHICH WERE DISCOVERED IN TWO YEARS SINCE THIS APP WAS LAST UPDATED! YOU WOULD BE TAKING A DANGEROUS GAMBLE WITH YOUR PRIVACY IF YOU USE THIS APP!
Mediocre
by Aganthorp on 2018/04/26 23:16
Privacy is nice but it is slow and lacking most modern features. Please update for iPhone X.
Well satisfied

Not as good as free onion browser
by ----------------------d on 2018/04/10 13:47
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.
by yarkanlik on 2018/04/01 15:17
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
by Zap B. on 2018/03/17 02:36
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
by poobop boy on 2018/02/22 18:43
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!
by AphrodisiacDuo on 2018/02/21 05:43
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
by Jp Staclz on 2018/02/03 20:36
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.
yes
by sam lord on 2018/01/30 02:04
it operates like champ
Abandoneware
by Hot-Flaps on 2018/01/27 17:20
Edit: Yep this is abandoned. The developer has released a regularly updated Red Onion 2 with no word of this fact here. I wouldn’t trust someone happy to trade your privacy and online safety for another $2. Old review: Yeah I wouldn’t trust a TOR app that hasn’t been updated for over a year. The official pc version gets updated nonstop and this app must be light years behind in security and patches. There are plenty of other maintained tor apps on iOS and they also don’t ask for a 5 star review to unlock features.
Can’t use duck duck go
by Wizard 101 for mobile please on 2018/01/22 17:32
All it does is say forbidden. If you won’t let me choose my browser then you lose my business
Can’t use select or share features
by cjbluez on 2018/01/13 03:02
This app would be nice if you could select content and use “share” function to integrate pgp But the function options disappear before you can press them making this app inferior to the TOB app. **Developers please fix this issue or kindly refund me...
Fantastic Browser!
by Braiden Psiuk on 2018/01/05 07:39
I’ve been using this browser for about a year now. The downloading/offline viewing features are incredible, and it does its job to ensure you remain anonymous when browsing. This is the perfect browser for anyone interested in being able to store files such as MP3s, MP4s, WEBMs, and so fourth. And for everything it’s doing in the background, I have to say, it’s very quick. It’s full of security options, HTTP options, and other various settings. There are a few small bugs- but it takes quite a long time and very specific circumstances to notice them. However. it’s totally worth the money. Browse quickly, securely, and with loads of additional features at your fingertips with Red Browser!

Please make the app logo look better but grate app worth every cent
Update this Allready!!!
by Bookman on 2017/12/05 10:27
Red Browser has gone a year and a half with out updates. That means that all the security holes that have been found in the last year and a half are still active in Red Browser. Tor 3.0 has been released, spread into the wild, and there sites using it...but Red Browser can't access said sites because it doesn't support Tor 3.0. Come on Mr. Mody! Update your previously stellar program. Lots of us are hoping you will.
Great!
by Kensuka on 2017/11/26 13:28
Fantastic!
It alright if you absolutely need a tor
by Tattoo joe1000 on 2017/11/25 03:49
Slow, but if you have ALOT of patients you will eventually finish what should of taken no more than 30 min. I understand that it's a tor browser and automatically gonna be slower. But I have a brand new iPhone and it has taken me 2 days to do something I did with an android tor in 10 min
Not working in 🇸🇦
by Meshal349 on 2017/11/23 04:35
I’ve been working on this app a long time ago, but suddenly with no reason the app itself just stopped connecting to the “red onion”. Please fix this issue as faster as you can.
Not worth $2.
by iTunesBreaksEveryComputer on 2017/11/21 06:19
WebRTC and other common de-anonymizing attacks are not blocked by this browser. This is an easy fix and is present on many other tor browser apps. It is not secure. You are not safe using this.
Nice

Terrible

Hasn’t been updated in a very long time.

Security focused apps should at least be updated to address the latest vulnerabilities and support improvements.
Please fix it....
by Hp561 on 2017/10/26 15:02
I love this app but it is very unstable and glitchy. Especially on the new iPad Pros. I hope you guys didn’t stop supporting this app.

by Calarcon000 on 2017/10/17 13:06
I would give zero stars if possible not once was I able to get this browser to work tried it at home nothing just got to 5% tried it at a public wifi. Same thing. Save your money.
Extremely slow

Un- usable
Best Tor browser for iphone
by Unique-Horn Unicorn on 2017/10/13 15:34
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
by Chiefcheeba on 2017/10/09 08:25
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.
Great
by Shoepuffigton on 2017/10/08 06:09
This is a great browser for people who don't know too much about tech. It's a little slower but still it's nice. If you know about tech then it's honestly better to hide your own IP address and such using a program for google.
Was great, now is broken
by Mithrandir Prime on 2017/09/30 17:13
I loved this app. Used it for years. Then came the 1-2 punch of iOS 11 and T-Mobile. No IPv6 support in Red Onion, even if you understand torrc enough to configure it yourself. I'm guessing that the author hasn’t integrated the latest TOR into this app in a couple of years. So, no joy if using a t-mobile iPad or using WiFi to a T-Mobile hotspot phone. —- Old review —- So glad I found this app. I started off with a competing iPad TOR product. It was buggy as heck, had very poor compatibility, and the author talked about all the features that were coming in "the fall", like tabbed browsing. Fall came and went, then winter, spring, and summer. Then 2014, 2015, 2026, and 2017. So, I looked for a new TOR product, and amid the complaints that one or another was fake, I found this one. All the features that the other browser had been promising for over a year, and way less bugs. Pages load faster and look better. It's just an improvement in every way. Best thing, it uses a ton less bandwidth than my old browser. I never knew that the other app had a "bandwidth sucking" bug until I started using this one. Doesn't burn through the mobile plan in the field, and it's so much more responsive than the other browser when on WiFi.
The way to go

Dark Web

Does this browser give access to the dark web?
Don't use this.

It does appear to work (somewhat), but is not actively maintained, not open source, and not endorsed by the tor project for various reasons. There are currently no iOS apps worthy of using for improved anonymity. Most of these reviewers are likely unaware of what they're reviewing and why... using a tor based browser for everyday clear web activities. Good effort from the author. iOS has limitations that make utilizing tor very tricky. I don't mind donating $1.99 for a few hours of testing. However, I don't trust this app any more than the author... who closed the project website for an "ethical dilemma" in regards to the project. TL;DR - Don't trust 99% of these reviews (or this app).
Stuck at 5%

I paid for this and I'm stuck at 5% all the time every time
Does What Its Suppose To
by Muay Thai Warrior on 2017/04/03 09:57
This app serves it purpose, however, to better avoid frustrations you must understand that Tor doesnt function the same as your typical well-known browsers. One of the differences impact the rate of data transmission - a small trade-off for anonymity. By the way, one user question the use of a PIN, that is to further secure access to the app, from what i have been able to determine.
Better than Safari
by Cletus B. on 2017/06/22 19:54
Better security and more privacy... what more could we ask for from our technology these days. It's nice to have it require a pin or Touch ID to access, so when you hand your phone to someone (to look at or find something for you), they don't come across any personal information, "suggestions" (from your history), etc. Also I've noticed lately that when we clear Safari's cache, cookies, history (from the settings); and click advanced - website data, some cookies/websites won't delete... even when you delete them one by one, they go away until go back into that selection tab, they just reappear. I have a feeling it has something to do with my location being fetched randomly by the time zone setting... (which I have always had turned off). I'd delete Safari if I could.
Near perfection
by 6445678766 on 2016/03/18 17:19
This app is pretty good with securing your information through many tests I have conducted. Although like everything it's not perfect and the first few nodes it passes through are insecure, even though it it highly unlikely someone can snatch that information it is still insecure. Other than that there's not much tweaking to make this app more user friendly because it is very well done. The only user friendly problem while using this app is that when you scroll down you need to go all the way up again to change your page to do whatever you wish to do. Other than that this app is absolutely great at downloading videos, sound files, etc. and I haven't seen any applicant have a proxy mesh and download this fast, so good job. This app is awesome and I'd rate this 9.9 with a repentant on top!
Fantastic Browser!
by Braiden Psiuk on 2018/01/05 07:39
I’ve been using this browser for about a year now. The downloading/offline viewing features are incredible, and it does its job to ensure you remain anonymous when browsing. This is the perfect browser for anyone interested in being able to store files such as MP3s, MP4s, WEBMs, and so fourth. And for everything it’s doing in the background, I have to say, it’s very quick. It’s full of security options, HTTP options, and other various settings. There are a few small bugs- but it takes quite a long time and very specific circumstances to notice them. However. it’s totally worth the money. Browse quickly, securely, and with loads of additional features at your fingertips with Red Browser!
Best Tor Browser
by Binxsalem on 2017/09/01 07:26
I spent a couple of weeks trying many of the free tor browsers available in the App Store, and although a few allowed me to navigate many spaces on the deep web, none of them offered a way to actually view videos and media like this browser does. I was hesitant to spend money, fearing that I would also face the same restrictions on different sites blocked by the free browsers, but Red Onion actually lets me freely browse a ton of addresses that seem arbitrarily blocked by the others. So far this is well worth the purchase and I would highly recommend it to anyone finding dissatisfaction with the free web clients they've tried before.
Was great, now is broken
by Mithrandir Prime on 2017/09/30 17:13
I loved this app. Used it for years. Then came the 1-2 punch of iOS 11 and T-Mobile. No IPv6 support in Red Onion, even if you understand torrc enough to configure it yourself. I'm guessing that the author hasn’t integrated the latest TOR into this app in a couple of years. So, no joy if using a t-mobile iPad or using WiFi to a T-Mobile hotspot phone. —- Old review —- So glad I found this app. I started off with a competing iPad TOR product. It was buggy as heck, had very poor compatibility, and the author talked about all the features that were coming in "the fall", like tabbed browsing. Fall came and went, then winter, spring, and summer. Then 2014, 2015, 2026, and 2017. So, I looked for a new TOR product, and amid the complaints that one or another was fake, I found this one. All the features that the other browser had been promising for over a year, and way less bugs. Pages load faster and look better. It's just an improvement in every way. Best thing, it uses a ton less bandwidth than my old browser. I never knew that the other app had a "bandwidth sucking" bug until I started using this one. Doesn't burn through the mobile plan in the field, and it's so much more responsive than the other browser when on WiFi.
WORTH THE 2$ excellent functionality even on crapple;)
by Samwallis15 on 2017/01/10 00:10
So I was curious to see if you could even deep web on a mac safely and I still think there's some fishy things apple does in regards to users content but for simple deep web stuff like alpha bay this is perfect, and the 4-digit passcode protection for every time the screen closes so no one but you can possibly be viewing your websites is great! I'm thinking the only thing I could criticize is speed but it's running Tor and is definitely more than bearable :) fire up your VPN and get your bitcoins ready :D
Forced review
by Kplan23 on 2016/03/31 22:50
I'm writing this review because it's a requirement to unlock the Pro version. This sort of extortion should be banned by Apple. All reviews positive or negative should be completely optional. Did I receive the Pro version? I wouldn't know how to determine that since the app doesn't contain an IAP. Was I duped into giving a 5 star review and got nothing in return. It's possible. From my use of the app I will say it's very slow which was expected as all Tor browsers are. Does it protect my anonymity? I can't say.
Almost perfect!
by H4R61NG3R on 2016/08/14 07:54
I think everything about this app is good though there are some features that can make it perfect... I believe one is that really necessary is a toolbar at the bottom of the page that includes home and bookmarks. Other than that it's a bit slow and I believe it can be worked out. Yet there is no other encrypted browser that I would prefer over this.
Not as good as free onion browser
by ----------------------d on 2018/04/10 13:47
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.
Slow, but awesome!
by jmac93427 on 2016/03/21 07:32
When loading on an iPhone (I have a 5S), it seems to take forever. But once it's loaded, it works great. I use it on my iPhone and my iPad Air for anonymous browsing. I know that "Big Brother" (NSA) has absolutely no problem following me no matter what I use, but at least this helps a little bit. I'm not trying to hide anything, but this is the gateway to the dark web.
Great App
by Valiantthor7794 on 2016/08/25 01:36
Great App ! Has good accessing security like a Pin and fingerprint verification. The App runs smoother than the .99 cent version by Mike Tigas, but lacks some of the browsing security that it has. If you want to access the Deep Web it will take you there, but I wouldn't do much more than looking. It's not totally secure like the Tor browser bundle running on a Linux PC, but it's definitely better than using Safari.
Yay for Privacy.
by cdkii on 2016/03/18 14:53
The new icon is great! — Not that there was anything wrong with the old one. As for the app, it works quite well. An issues with speed, and what not just seem to be an issue of using TOR's network itself. Overall though, given all the encryption and privacy issues that is quickly eroding civil liberties, it's nice to have an option to use TOR on iOS.
Remarkable
by Ed Esso on 2016/03/22 20:53
I'm in my 70’s and don't know what a torrent is, but this browser is very friendly and works like a charm. I love being able to choose so quickly and easily between downloading and direct streaming because I'm crawling along on an iPad 2 and TV shows and films often stutter in other browsers. If that starts to happen in Red Onion I just download first and smoothness happens!
Best Tor browser for iphone
by Unique-Horn Unicorn on 2017/10/13 15:34
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.
Eh, could be better
by MrPeery on 2017/05/16 18:05
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?
Excellent
by iBayern1 on 2016/03/19 03:17
It is excellent...even DO NOT think about other tor browser apps for ipad/iphone...this app is an absolutely must-have app for all. Update: As we expect from Omar, it is excellent...Just I wish it has an option to just backup bookmarks and browser setting in icloud without syncing downloaded files, and also ios 9 split view.
Tor doesn't work anymore
by abcdNawaf1 on 2017/01/07 06:34
i have in issue with the app since 2 months the issue is when i start opening the app its take about 1 min from 0 to 10 % after that i wait more then 20 minutes but nothing change its still 10% and the doesn't work anymore it was work very well but now dont idk whats the problem i hope you guys see my problem and fex it and yes my internet speed is very good about 20 MG and i tryed to uninstall the app and download it againe but its still doesn't work so I guess 99% the problem is from the app .
The Best Tor Browser Available!!
by Lurch5thGroup on 2016/03/18 14:32
What you read in their description is exactly what you will get with the app. No letdowns whatsoever! I've ran a sniffer on my connection and get no external communications of any kind. I do not give 5-Star reviews lightly and it's only been after using this Tor Browser for over a year now that I give this review. Great job Devs!!
Good but...
by MarkM in Vancouver on 2017/04/09 21:41
I like the browser and its interface, but the buttons are not always responsive. For instance, I keep clicking the upper right tabs button and nothing happens. Also the backspace button doesn't work unless I change to another tab. Unfortunate blemishes on an otherwise great app.
Great service and features
by Kali Housè on 2016/04/13 12:36
I always go into secured websites preference panels before usage, but this application has a decent amount of settings to configure. I liked that, promoting security to the fullest. The application loads pretty fast I would say, especially depending on Internet services. I'm an average user of Onion Browser. Works great! Thank you developers :)
Good not perfect
by Bill GBG on 2016/07/23 15:50
Yes this app is a gateway to the dark web if not a very slow one. One of its problems is that it consumes unnecessary battery power. My gauge says it stays in the background 2 to 3 times longer than it's screen ready time. So now I'm looking for something faster and less battery consuming. One nice thing about it is it's built-in browser and fairly good downloader. Honestly I do use these quite a bit.
It used to be the best
by krystina82 on 2016/12/29 06:48
I used to loved this app. Suddenly it no longer can connect to tor. It get stuck at 25%, & has been doing it for days. Other onion browsers have no problem connecting to tor (however I don't like those tor browsers). My original rating before it broke would have been 5 stars. I don't know why this browser broke, it pains me to give it only 1 star-- something I only give programs that completely do not work. I've checked for updates, reinstalled, connect over a VPN, cold reboots -- you name it. Ive done everything on my end that I can think of to get it to work. Like I said, other tor browsers can connect so it is not my isp. I hope this is fixed ASAP, and when it is, I would be very happy to change my review. Sadly, this no longer works. I guess it's time to move on, unless they fix it.
Malicious Software...?
by Jude450 on 2018/05/23 22:55
Once I downloaded this, the incognito mode on my google chrome app stopped working. The app wouldn’t let me use the Incognito feature without doing the not-a-robot test that they give you when starting some sort of account online. I looked up the reason for this and it could have been from malicious software on my phone. I deleted the red onion app and restarted my phone and everything was fine in google chrome.
It seems good
by Disc0 bliss on 2016/10/31 01:33
I'm not sure how this app keeps up to date with the latest tor versions - I never get an update notice (every tor browser update requires you to download the update for instance). This makes me a little wary of optimal security/anonymity. I like the extra features, including being able to view PDFs on my iPhone quickly. I feel that and the spoofing made it worth the price I paid...
Privacy is important.
by Epws on 2016/03/18 20:41
I personally think that when you have the Tor browser in computer, then you should be able to browse the internet privately, aswell on your iPhone and for this purpose, this app is the best and it is exactly like the computer version(Tor).
Red Onion Delivers the Tor Experience!
by GuntherBurghardt on 2017/04/18 23:54
I must say I am delighted to have found this app. I tried a couple of other Tor browser apps which didn't function ... they didn't even seem to get onto Tor at all. This one is nearly flawless on my iPad Pro -- it does what needs to get done. Get it.
Abandoneware
by Hot-Flaps on 2018/01/27 17:20
Edit: Yep this is abandoned. The developer has released a regularly updated Red Onion 2 with no word of this fact here. I wouldn’t trust someone happy to trade your privacy and online safety for another $2. Old review: Yeah I wouldn’t trust a TOR app that hasn’t been updated for over a year. The official pc version gets updated nonstop and this app must be light years behind in security and patches. There are plenty of other maintained tor apps on iOS and they also don’t ask for a 5 star review to unlock features.
Great web browser is getting even better
by Lobstrick on 2016/03/20 14:47
I'm confident about privacy while browsing and it really makes sense for me. Recommend to everybody The only thing to ask developers is to add reading view like it is in native Safari app.
Red onion
by 10yearsreloader on 2016/08/28 00:08
Using red onion with Vpn express (I'm very capable of setting up vpn and Tor networks on all platforms) I have constant problems with data completely stopping cause Vpn express tries updating and gets stuck. This happens with email, Internet, anything requiring data. So I expect all problems are due to Vpn an not red onion. Sorry this review isn't so much about red onion, I wish I could give an actual review.
Shouldn't app be getting more freq TOR related updates?
by Robert Huebi on 2016/11/30 10:48
I like and use this app but it just occurred to me: Tor gets updates several times per year (maybe due to updates in the Firefox browser) but it seems that this app updates less frequently. Is this a cause for security concern?
An Excellent Secure Tor Browser
by kevncarlin on 2016/03/23 09:59
This browser is perfect for when you are stuck on an untrusted wi-fi network or want privacy in the workplace, via wi-fi or cell network. Not for video or audio, though, since those protocols leak information and clog onion networks.
Look no further, there's actually a good solution!
by Tolejo on 2017/01/16 00:17
This app is amazing. Fast, beautiful, safe (of course), versatile. You could literally make it your default web browser. The best way to access the WHOLE internet on your iOS device.
Great
by Shoepuffigton on 2017/10/08 06:09
This is a great browser for people who don't know too much about tech. It's a little slower but still it's nice. If you know about tech then it's honestly better to hide your own IP address and such using a program for google.
Red Browser
by BB Seattle on 2016/04/30 21:32
Although I do not use the full capacity of the App it does what I want. It opens up browsing and eliminates unwanted history tracking. I find it fast and simple to use adding, apparently , another layer of bug protection.
Simple, fast, and free to browse...
by Cindow22 on 2016/09/13 07:44
What more can be said about the Red Onion Browser? I tell my friends about this safer way to browse the web, and many have no idea what it is! Let's keep the Internet free and unfettered by more governmental controls! Much appreciated Red Onion!
Great interface, definitely recommend combining with a VPN
by bobdole828 on 2019/06/22 00:00
I tried the product out and ended up delving deeper than I intended. The Tor network bridges failed a few times, had to remember to copy paste... I don’t like how much analytics are collected. But it’s encrypted well enough. Thanks for the extra security.
Best tor browser for iPhone
by ckwmom on 2016/03/22 03:08
Only problem is that the browser bar bends out of shape a little when switching between landscape and portrait modes, making it a bit tricky to tap the browser bar. Other than that, worth the buy.
Quick, good
by NOT THIS ONE OMG on 2016/08/11 00:35
I did NOT test the security of this app, but have been very happy w/the browsing experience and figure it must be doing something because I'm getting ads in multiple different languages.
Great app. Great developer.
by Bookfad on 2018/11/04 22:33
This app is great and superior to safari in almost every way. I had a problem where a feature wouldn’t work, but I emailed the developer and he responded THE SAME DAY with a solution. I’d highly recommend this app.
Exactly what I was looking for
by MetallicCOLORS on 2017/01/12 07:17
This app is very useful. It served the purpose I had intended for it to be used for. $1.99 is worth it in my eyes. At least I knew what I was getting. Red Onion app is worth the price and would never go back to any other app.
Not perfect but still great
by RON NYC on 2016/10/22 15:17
It's not perfect but for what it's it does, which is to protect your privacy it's a great product. As some have said it's a little slow compared to your regular mainstream browsers but not too bad. For me it just works.
Good job fellows!
by Fanfare100 on 2016/05/30 15:25
It's great to have TOR in your palm and when you're on travel. Thank you for your service in keeping people safe from snoopers and centralized oppression. Just yesterday, it was published that Eric Holder finally admitted that Edward Snowden performed a public service! Finally!!
How...?
by KuttNitup on 2017/06/12 19:58
I've heard a lot about the deep web and the dark web. I get the idea behind these "tor" browsers. However, I don't really understand exactly how to properly use red onion browser. I wish I knew a little more on how to use this app. It certainly by all accounts works. I just don't know how to properly use it to search the deep web.
Fast, easy to use
by Dieselmedic on 2016/03/21 02:14
I really like the use of having a secure browsing experience. This is easy to use, and has connected faster than I'd expected. It's become my browser of choice!
Required 5-Star Review to Unlock Pro Version
by Gank! on 2017/01/03 02:21
I was asked to write a 5-Star review to unlock the pro version of the app. I guess there's really nothing wrong with that. I use the app more than a few other Tor browser apps I have.
Very nice
by Worderator on 2017/07/11 03:08
Very simple application to use to get some additional security and anonymous Internet access. While not perfect, for the ease-of-use and speed of the application it is very good. I have been really happy with it.
Best thing since slice bread
by Baltimorekid24 on 2017/02/23 10:03
Tired of people tracking your every move. Don't want every website keeping files of what your doing then this is a most have!!
Don't use this.

Not worth paying for
by Blayckon on 2019/08/13 20:36
Not optimized for iPhone X and probably some other iPhones as well, missing features and poor maintenance from the developer.
Works Flawlessly
by minniemaiqq on 2019/08/09 15:19
This is the only app that I have found so far that actually works. It stays connected and I’m able to surf the web . TYTYTY

by Znose on 2019/08/05 20:57
-Download understanding the following. -App has been neglected by Developers & no Updates since I downloaded it, about 1.5 years ago -This IS NOT TOR!!! Apple has yet to allow their iOS or phones to use TOR. -When App “sticks” at a %, I found success by closing it, re-opening it(May need to do this a couple of times) -Since this App is NOT TOR, and NOT a VPN, I urge anyone using it to be extraordinarily vigilant and to NOT search the “Dark Web” for any Sites that may be “sensitive”, so to speak! -Only use DuckDuckGo or Disconnect for Search Engines>all the others know and almost, assuredly, sell your Info! -I use it as alternative to Safari which I find very “leaky”
Please remove old version so others don’t end up with old

Best Tor Browser for iOS
broken for a while now
by VDNYC on 2019/07/06 00:03
desperately needs an update. the app has been unable to establish an initial connection for a couple weeks now. other tor browsers continue to work fine.
Won’t work
by Chargor on 2019/06/29 05:38
Waste of the money
Great interface, definitely recommend combining with a VPN
by bobdole828 on 2019/06/22 00:00
I tried the product out and ended up delving deeper than I intended. The Tor network bridges failed a few times, had to remember to copy paste... I don’t like how much analytics are collected. But it’s encrypted well enough. Thanks for the extra security.
Great tool
by Subscription-not on 2019/06/21 17:49
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.
Stopped working
by disappointedNdallas on 2019/06/18 05:14
It stopped working. It tries to load but thats about it
Needs to be compatible with Xs and Max
by Irushsjdlg on 2019/06/17 05:40
Looks weirder without compatibility and also needs tor V3
Fast great browser

I like how quick it connects,,
DO NOT USE!
by A. Chadwick on 2019/06/14 20:48

Can’t even search up anything before the robot check comes out , I never got to browse just because captcha keeps popping up before I search and it never approves the check it just loads again after completing , thinking about a refund
Awesome app that works like it’s suppose to!
by DJB in OKC on 2019/04/21 14:35
I have been through four or five other TOR browsers and I just had issue after issue with them and it was just a big pain in the butt so I abandoned the whole TOR deal altogether for a year or so. Finally I decided to jump back in and after digging around a while I found “Red Browser”. I downloaded it and took it for a spin and I’m really glad I did. It actually did what it was suppose to without locking up or glitching me to the nut-house. It worked smoothly and just made it fun again and you could focus on what you want to be doing and not trying to figure out glitches and stuff. It is a super-solid program and would recommend it to everyone. By the way I do know software pretty well. I was a beta tester back in the 80’s for Microsoft’s big VB6 campaign and launch. Enjoy Red Browser, it was coded right!! DJB
Worked great 1st few weeks

Best Tor browser on the App Store.
Can’t play videos in it
by cehoofe on 2019/03/15 18:18
Something I like is that the app is really fast that’s for sure but it doesn’t let me play videos
Works very well.
by Igdujgf on 2019/03/05 01:07
I tried the free ones with no luck. Red Browser has consistently worked well with no problems.
Very Slow
by joestru123 on 2019/02/18 16:10
The app generally take 5+ minutes to open and downloads can take 30-45 minutes. Please let me know how to speed those up.

by Labhustle on 2018/12/14 08:25
Please, your app was successful in its own way and would have been quadruple the intake from sales if more care and updates came. It’s a shame, the only one I like.
It stays at 5%
by joe_john3 on 2018/12/12 22:37
It never loads past that. I tried going through a different tor, hard restart, everything I know to do and still it never gets past 5% even after waiting close to an hour
Good app ‘worth the purchase ‘
by Kellzconn on 2018/11/05 19:03
Didn’t expect it to be this good when i first saw it on the app store...but-am glad I purchase it and impressed.
Great app. Great developer.
by Bookfad on 2018/11/04 22:33
This app is great and superior to safari in almost every way. I had a problem where a feature wouldn’t work, but I emailed the developer and he responded THE SAME DAY with a solution. I’d highly recommend this app.
Anonymous?
by Shell56 on 2018/10/15 11:05
I don’t believe it is anonymous. When I use it, white pin in a day I will get porn spam friend requests in Fakebook. I have a cloaking blanket for sale also, it must work because I said it does.
Good stuff

by isnsisjsdishidbdsjd on 2018/08/25 03:30
At first, I was gullible and trusted the reviews but after I bought it, it went all glitchy and didn’t even load websites. I had to request a refund cause I wasted my money on garbage and I want it back!
Greedy developer
by Nikcanon on 2018/08/20 22:56
Instead of updating app, developer makes it so you pay for the first one and the update, but the update is designed as a whole new app, don’t waste your time on this one.
Fail

Lags very bad. Sometimes doesn’t connect
by Let Justice Be Done on 2018/08/04 18:30
This browser used to work OK, but now it takes forever just to connect and sometimes doesn’t connect at all. Going to the webpage for support was not helpful either. Devs, please update this app and fix these connectivity issues.

Nice but forgot password
by DeepThoughtBrony on 2018/07/10 01:36
This is a really nice app but I forgot my password and it doesn’t give any way to recover it, so now it’s totally useless to me. It needs someway to reset or recover a password or something, imo. I hope the developers see this and have a solution.
This is fun lol

Malicious Software...?
by Jude450 on 2018/05/23 22:55
Once I downloaded this, the incognito mode on my google chrome app stopped working. The app wouldn’t let me use the Incognito feature without doing the not-a-robot test that they give you when starting some sort of account online. I looked up the reason for this and it could have been from malicious software on my phone. I deleted the red onion app and restarted my phone and everything was fine in google chrome.

BADLY OUTDATED - DON'T USE THIS APP!
by tabaks on 2018/05/06 15:21
THIS APPLICATION IS BADLY OUTDATED! BY USING IT YOU WOULD ALMOST CERTAINLY BE EXPOSED TO ALL TOR VULNERABILITIES WHICH WERE DISCOVERED IN TWO YEARS SINCE THIS APP WAS LAST UPDATED! YOU WOULD BE TAKING A DANGEROUS GAMBLE WITH YOUR PRIVACY IF YOU USE THIS APP!
Mediocre

Not as good as free onion browser
by ----------------------d on 2018/04/10 13:47
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.
by yarkanlik on 2018/04/01 15:17
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
by Zap B. on 2018/03/17 02:36
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
by poobop boy on 2018/02/22 18:43
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!
by AphrodisiacDuo on 2018/02/21 05:43
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
by Jp Staclz on 2018/02/03 20:36
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.

by Hot-Flaps on 2018/01/27 17:20
Edit: Yep this is abandoned. The developer has released a regularly updated Red Onion 2 with no word of this fact here. I wouldn’t trust someone happy to trade your privacy and online safety for another $2. Old review: Yeah I wouldn’t trust a TOR app that hasn’t been updated for over a year. The official pc version gets updated nonstop and this app must be light years behind in security and patches. There are plenty of other maintained tor apps on iOS and they also don’t ask for a 5 star review to unlock features.

This app would be nice if you could select content and use “share” function to integrate pgp But the function options disappear before you can press them making this app inferior to the TOB app. **Developers please fix this issue or kindly refund me...
Fantastic Browser!
by Braiden Psiuk on 2018/01/05 07:39
I’ve been using this browser for about a year now. The downloading/offline viewing features are incredible, and it does its job to ensure you remain anonymous when browsing. This is the perfect browser for anyone interested in being able to store files such as MP3s, MP4s, WEBMs, and so fourth. And for everything it’s doing in the background, I have to say, it’s very quick. It’s full of security options, HTTP options, and other various settings. There are a few small bugs- but it takes quite a long time and very specific circumstances to notice them. However. it’s totally worth the money. Browse quickly, securely, and with loads of additional features at your fingertips with Red Browser!

by Bookman on 2017/12/05 10:27
Red Browser has gone a year and a half with out updates. That means that all the security holes that have been found in the last year and a half are still active in Red Browser. Tor 3.0 has been released, spread into the wild, and there sites using it...but Red Browser can't access said sites because it doesn't support Tor 3.0. Come on Mr. Mody! Update your previously stellar program. Lots of us are hoping you will.
Great!

Slow, but if you have ALOT of patients you will eventually finish what should of taken no more than 30 min. I understand that it's a tor browser and automatically gonna be slower. But I have a brand new iPhone and it has taken me 2 days to do something I did with an android tor in 10 min

Not worth $2.
by iTunesBreaksEveryComputer on 2017/11/21 06:19
WebRTC and other common de-anonymizing attacks are not blocked by this browser. This is an easy fix and is present on many other tor browser apps. It is not secure. You are not safe using this.

Best Tor browser for iphone
by Unique-Horn Unicorn on 2017/10/13 15:34
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
by Chiefcheeba on 2017/10/09 08:25
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.
Great
by Shoepuffigton on 2017/10/08 06:09
This is a great browser for people who don't know too much about tech. It's a little slower but still it's nice. If you know about tech then it's honestly better to hide your own IP address and such using a program for google.
Was great, now is broken
by Mithrandir Prime on 2017/09/30 17:13
I loved this app. Used it for years. Then came the 1-2 punch of iOS 11 and T-Mobile. No IPv6 support in Red Onion, even if you understand torrc enough to configure it yourself. I'm guessing that the author hasn’t integrated the latest TOR into this app in a couple of years. So, no joy if using a t-mobile iPad or using WiFi to a T-Mobile hotspot phone. —- Old review —- So glad I found this app. I started off with a competing iPad TOR product. It was buggy as heck, had very poor compatibility, and the author talked about all the features that were coming in "the fall", like tabbed browsing. Fall came and went, then winter, spring, and summer. Then 2014, 2015, 2026, and 2017. So, I looked for a new TOR product, and amid the complaints that one or another was fake, I found this one. All the features that the other browser had been promising for over a year, and way less bugs. Pages load faster and look better. It's just an improvement in every way. Best thing, it uses a ton less bandwidth than my old browser. I never knew that the other app had a "bandwidth sucking" bug until I started using this one. Doesn't burn through the mobile plan in the field, and it's so much more responsive than the other browser when on WiFi.

Dark Web

Does this browser give access to the dark web?
Don't use this.
by asininegenius on 2017/09/18 03:17
It does appear to work (somewhat), but is not actively maintained, not open source, and not endorsed by the tor project for various reasons. There are currently no iOS apps worthy of using for improved anonymity. Most of these reviewers are likely unaware of what they're reviewing and why... using a tor based browser for everyday clear web activities. Good effort from the author. iOS has limitations that make utilizing tor very tricky. I don't mind donating $1.99 for a few hours of testing. However, I don't trust this app any more than the author... who closed the project website for an "ethical dilemma" in regards to the project. TL;DR - Don't trust 99% of these reviews (or this app).

Does What Its Suppose To
by Muay Thai Warrior on 2017/04/03 09:57
This app serves it purpose, however, to better avoid frustrations you must understand that Tor doesnt function the same as your typical well-known browsers. One of the differences impact the rate of data transmission - a small trade-off for anonymity. By the way, one user question the use of a PIN, that is to further secure access to the app, from what i have been able to determine.
Better than Safari
by Cletus B. on 2017/06/22 19:54
Better security and more privacy... what more could we ask for from our technology these days. It's nice to have it require a pin or Touch ID to access, so when you hand your phone to someone (to look at or find something for you), they don't come across any personal information, "suggestions" (from your history), etc. Also I've noticed lately that when we clear Safari's cache, cookies, history (from the settings); and click advanced - website data, some cookies/websites won't delete... even when you delete them one by one, they go away until go back into that selection tab, they just reappear. I have a feeling it has something to do with my location being fetched randomly by the time zone setting... (which I have always had turned off). I'd delete Safari if I could.
Near perfection
by 6445678766 on 2016/03/18 17:19
This app is pretty good with securing your information through many tests I have conducted. Although like everything it's not perfect and the first few nodes it passes through are insecure, even though it it highly unlikely someone can snatch that information it is still insecure. Other than that there's not much tweaking to make this app more user friendly because it is very well done. The only user friendly problem while using this app is that when you scroll down you need to go all the way up again to change your page to do whatever you wish to do. Other than that this app is absolutely great at downloading videos, sound files, etc. and I haven't seen any applicant have a proxy mesh and download this fast, so good job. This app is awesome and I'd rate this 9.9 with a repentant on top!

Best Tor Browser
by Binxsalem on 2017/09/01 07:26
I spent a couple of weeks trying many of the free tor browsers available in the App Store, and although a few allowed me to navigate many spaces on the deep web, none of them offered a way to actually view videos and media like this browser does. I was hesitant to spend money, fearing that I would also face the same restrictions on different sites blocked by the free browsers, but Red Onion actually lets me freely browse a ton of addresses that seem arbitrarily blocked by the others. So far this is well worth the purchase and I would highly recommend it to anyone finding dissatisfaction with the free web clients they've tried before.

All the features that the other browser had been promising for over a year, and way less bugs. Pages load faster and look better. It's just an improvement in every way. Best thing, it uses a ton less bandwidth than my old browser. I never knew that the other app had a "bandwidth sucking" bug until I started using this one. Doesn't burn through the mobile plan in the field, and it's so much more responsive than the other browser when on WiFi.
WORTH THE 2$ excellent functionality even on crapple;)
by Samwallis15 on 2017/01/10 00:10
So I was curious to see if you could even deep web on a mac safely and I still think there's some fishy things apple does in regards to users content but for simple deep web stuff like alpha bay this is perfect, and the 4-digit passcode protection for every time the screen closes so no one but you can possibly be viewing your websites is great! I'm thinking the only thing I could criticize is speed but it's running Tor and is definitely more than bearable :) fire up your VPN and get your bitcoins ready :D
Forced review
by Kplan23 on 2016/03/31 22:50
I'm writing this review because it's a requirement to unlock the Pro version. This sort of extortion should be banned by Apple. All reviews positive or negative should be completely optional. Did I receive the Pro version? I wouldn't know how to determine that since the app doesn't contain an IAP. Was I duped into giving a 5 star review and got nothing in return. It's possible. From my use of the app I will say it's very slow which was expected as all Tor browsers are. Does it protect my anonymity? I can't say.
Almost perfect!
by H4R61NG3R on 2016/08/14 07:54
I think everything about this app is good though there are some features that can make it perfect... I believe one is that really necessary is a toolbar at the bottom of the page that includes home and bookmarks. Other than that it's a bit slow and I believe it can be worked out. Yet there is no other encrypted browser that I would prefer over this.
Not as good as free onion browser
by ----------------------d on 2018/04/10 13:47
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.
Slow, but awesome!
by jmac93427 on 2016/03/21 07:32
When loading on an iPhone (I have a 5S), it seems to take forever. But once it's loaded, it works great. I use it on my iPhone and my iPad Air for anonymous browsing. I know that "Big Brother" (NSA) has absolutely no problem following me no matter what I use, but at least this helps a little bit. I'm not trying to hide anything, but this is the gateway to the dark web.
Great App
by Valiantthor7794 on 2016/08/25 01:36
Great App ! Has good accessing security like a Pin and fingerprint verification. The App runs smoother than the .99 cent version by Mike Tigas, but lacks some of the browsing security that it has. If you want to access the Deep Web it will take you there, but I wouldn't do much more than looking. It's not totally secure like the Tor browser bundle running on a Linux PC, but it's definitely better than using Safari.
Yay for Privacy.
by cdkii on 2016/03/18 14:53
The new icon is great! — Not that there was anything wrong with the old one. As for the app, it works quite well. An issues with speed, and what not just seem to be an issue of using TOR's network itself. Overall though, given all the encryption and privacy issues that is quickly eroding civil liberties, it's nice to have an option to use TOR on iOS.
Remarkable
by Ed Esso on 2016/03/22 20:53
I'm in my 70’s and don't know what a torrent is, but this browser is very friendly and works like a charm. I love being able to choose so quickly and easily between downloading and direct streaming because I'm crawling along on an iPad 2 and TV shows and films often stutter in other browsers. If that starts to happen in Red Onion I just download first and smoothness happens!
Best Tor browser for iphone
by Unique-Horn Unicorn on 2017/10/13 15:34
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.
Eh, could be better
by MrPeery on 2017/05/16 18:05
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?
Excellent
by iBayern1 on 2016/03/19 03:17
It is excellent...even DO NOT think about other tor browser apps for ipad/iphone...this app is an absolutely must-have app for all. Update: As we expect from Omar, it is excellent...Just I wish it has an option to just backup bookmarks and browser setting in icloud without syncing downloaded files, and also ios 9 split view.
Tor doesn't work anymore
by abcdNawaf1 on 2017/01/07 06:34
i have in issue with the app since 2 months the issue is when i start opening the app its take about 1 min from 0 to 10 % after that i wait more then 20 minutes but nothing change its still 10% and the doesn't work anymore it was work very well but now dont idk whats the problem i hope you guys see my problem and fex it and yes my internet speed is very good about 20 MG and i tryed to uninstall the app and download it againe but its still doesn't work so I guess 99% the problem is from the app .
The Best Tor Browser Available!!
by Lurch5thGroup on 2016/03/18 14:32
What you read in their description is exactly what you will get with the app. No letdowns whatsoever! I've ran a sniffer on my connection and get no external communications of any kind. I do not give 5-Star reviews lightly and it's only been after using this Tor Browser for over a year now that I give this review. Great job Devs!!
Good but...
by MarkM in Vancouver on 2017/04/09 21:41
I like the browser and its interface, but the buttons are not always responsive. For instance, I keep clicking the upper right tabs button and nothing happens. Also the backspace button doesn't work unless I change to another tab. Unfortunate blemishes on an otherwise great app.
Great service and features
by Kali Housè on 2016/04/13 12:36
I always go into secured websites preference panels before usage, but this application has a decent amount of settings to configure. I liked that, promoting security to the fullest. The application loads pretty fast I would say, especially depending on Internet services. I'm an average user of Onion Browser. Works great! Thank you developers :)
Good not perfect
by Bill GBG on 2016/07/23 15:50
Yes this app is a gateway to the dark web if not a very slow one. One of its problems is that it consumes unnecessary battery power. My gauge says it stays in the background 2 to 3 times longer than it's screen ready time. So now I'm looking for something faster and less battery consuming. One nice thing about it is it's built-in browser and fairly good downloader. Honestly I do use these quite a bit.
It used to be the best
by krystina82 on 2016/12/29 06:48
I used to loved this app. Suddenly it no longer can connect to tor. It get stuck at 25%, & has been doing it for days. Other onion browsers have no problem connecting to tor (however I don't like those tor browsers). My original rating before it broke would have been 5 stars. I don't know why this browser broke, it pains me to give it only 1 star-- something I only give programs that completely do not work. I've checked for updates, reinstalled, connect over a VPN, cold reboots -- you name it. Ive done everything on my end that I can think of to get it to work. Like I said, other tor browsers can connect so it is not my isp. I hope this is fixed ASAP, and when it is, I would be very happy to change my review. Sadly, this no longer works. I guess it's time to move on, unless they fix it.
Malicious Software...?
by Jude450 on 2018/05/23 22:55
Once I downloaded this, the incognito mode on my google chrome app stopped working. The app wouldn’t let me use the Incognito feature without doing the not-a-robot test that they give you when starting some sort of account online. I looked up the reason for this and it could have been from malicious software on my phone. I deleted the red onion app and restarted my phone and everything was fine in google chrome.
It seems good
by Disc0 bliss on 2016/10/31 01:33
I'm not sure how this app keeps up to date with the latest tor versions - I never get an update notice (every tor browser update requires you to download the update for instance). This makes me a little wary of optimal security/anonymity. I like the extra features, including being able to view PDFs on my iPhone quickly. I feel that and the spoofing made it worth the price I paid...
Privacy is important.
by Epws on 2016/03/18 20:41
I personally think that when you have the Tor browser in computer, then you should be able to browse the internet privately, aswell on your iPhone and for this purpose, this app is the best and it is exactly like the computer version(Tor).
Red Onion Delivers the Tor Experience!
by GuntherBurghardt on 2017/04/18 23:54
I must say I am delighted to have found this app. I tried a couple of other Tor browser apps which didn't function ... they didn't even seem to get onto Tor at all. This one is nearly flawless on my iPad Pro -- it does what needs to get done. Get it.
Abandoneware
by Hot-Flaps on 2018/01/27 17:20
Edit: Yep this is abandoned. The developer has released a regularly updated Red Onion 2 with no word of this fact here. I wouldn’t trust someone happy to trade your privacy and online safety for another $2. Old review: Yeah I wouldn’t trust a TOR app that hasn’t been updated for over a year. The official pc version gets updated nonstop and this app must be light years behind in security and patches. There are plenty of other maintained tor apps on iOS and they also don’t ask for a 5 star review to unlock features.
Great web browser is getting even better
by Lobstrick on 2016/03/20 14:47
I'm confident about privacy while browsing and it really makes sense for me. Recommend to everybody The only thing to ask developers is to add reading view like it is in native Safari app.
Red onion
by 10yearsreloader on 2016/08/28 00:08
Using red onion with Vpn express (I'm very capable of setting up vpn and Tor networks on all platforms) I have constant problems with data completely stopping cause Vpn express tries updating and gets stuck. This happens with email, Internet, anything requiring data. So I expect all problems are due to Vpn an not red onion. Sorry this review isn't so much about red onion, I wish I could give an actual review.
Shouldn't app be getting more freq TOR related updates?
by Robert Huebi on 2016/11/30 10:48
I like and use this app but it just occurred to me: Tor gets updates several times per year (maybe due to updates in the Firefox browser) but it seems that this app updates less frequently. Is this a cause for security concern?
An Excellent Secure Tor Browser
by kevncarlin on 2016/03/23 09:59
This browser is perfect for when you are stuck on an untrusted wi-fi network or want privacy in the workplace, via wi-fi or cell network. Not for video or audio, though, since those protocols leak information and clog onion networks.
Look no further, there's actually a good solution!
by Tolejo on 2017/01/16 00:17
This app is amazing. Fast, beautiful, safe (of course), versatile. You could literally make it your default web browser. The best way to access the WHOLE internet on your iOS device.
Great
by Shoepuffigton on 2017/10/08 06:09
This is a great browser for people who don't know too much about tech. It's a little slower but still it's nice. If you know about tech then it's honestly better to hide your own IP address and such using a program for google.
Red Browser
by BB Seattle on 2016/04/30 21:32
Although I do not use the full capacity of the App it does what I want. It opens up browsing and eliminates unwanted history tracking. I find it fast and simple to use adding, apparently , another layer of bug protection.
Simple, fast, and free to browse...
by Cindow22 on 2016/09/13 07:44
What more can be said about the Red Onion Browser? I tell my friends about this safer way to browse the web, and many have no idea what it is! Let's keep the Internet free and unfettered by more governmental controls! Much appreciated Red Onion!
Great interface, definitely recommend combining with a VPN
by bobdole828 on 2019/06/22 00:00
I tried the product out and ended up delving deeper than I intended. The Tor network bridges failed a few times, had to remember to copy paste... I don’t like how much analytics are collected. But it’s encrypted well enough. Thanks for the extra security.
Best tor browser for iPhone
by ckwmom on 2016/03/22 03:08
Only problem is that the browser bar bends out of shape a little when switching between landscape and portrait modes, making it a bit tricky to tap the browser bar. Other than that, worth the buy.
Quick, good
by NOT THIS ONE OMG on 2016/08/11 00:35
I did NOT test the security of this app, but have been very happy w/the browsing experience and figure it must be doing something because I'm getting ads in multiple different languages.
Great app. Great developer.
by Bookfad on 2018/11/04 22:33
This app is great and superior to safari in almost every way. I had a problem where a feature wouldn’t work, but I emailed the developer and he responded THE SAME DAY with a solution. I’d highly recommend this app.
Exactly what I was looking for
by MetallicCOLORS on 2017/01/12 07:17
This app is very useful. It served the purpose I had intended for it to be used for. $1.99 is worth it in my eyes. At least I knew what I was getting. Red Onion app is worth the price and would never go back to any other app.
Not perfect but still great
by RON NYC on 2016/10/22 15:17
It's not perfect but for what it's it does, which is to protect your privacy it's a great product. As some have said it's a little slow compared to your regular mainstream browsers but not too bad. For me it just works.
Good job fellows!
by Fanfare100 on 2016/05/30 15:25
It's great to have TOR in your palm and when you're on travel. Thank you for your service in keeping people safe from snoopers and centralized oppression. Just yesterday, it was published that Eric Holder finally admitted that Edward Snowden performed a public service! Finally!!
How...?
by KuttNitup on 2017/06/12 19:58
I've heard a lot about the deep web and the dark web. I get the idea behind these "tor" browsers. However, I don't really understand exactly how to properly use red onion browser. I wish I knew a little more on how to use this app. It certainly by all accounts works. I just don't know how to properly use it to search the deep web.
Fast, easy to use
by Dieselmedic on 2016/03/21 02:14
I really like the use of having a secure browsing experience. This is easy to use, and has connected faster than I'd expected. It's become my browser of choice!
Required 5-Star Review to Unlock Pro Version
by Gank! on 2017/01/03 02:21
I was asked to write a 5-Star review to unlock the pro version of the app. I guess there's really nothing wrong with that. I use the app more than a few other Tor browser apps I have.
Very nice
by Worderator on 2017/07/11 03:08
Very simple application to use to get some additional security and anonymous Internet access. While not perfect, for the ease-of-use and speed of the application it is very good. I have been really happy with it.
Best thing since slice bread
by Baltimorekid24 on 2017/02/23 10:03
Tired of people tracking your every move. Don't want every website keeping files of what your doing then this is a most have!!
Don't use this.
by asininegenius on 2017/09/18 03:17
It does appear to work (somewhat), but is not actively maintained, not open source, and not endorsed by the tor project for various reasons. There are currently no iOS apps worthy of using for improved anonymity. Most of these reviewers are likely unaware of what they're reviewing and why... using a tor based browser for everyday clear web activities. Good effort from the author. iOS has limitations that make utilizing tor very tricky. I don't mind donating $1.99 for a few hours of testing. However, I don't trust this app any more than the author... who closed the project website for an "ethical dilemma" in regards to the project. TL;DR - Don't trust 99% of these reviews (or this app).
