Browsers like Google’s Chrome have a feature called Incognito Mode which is meant to help keep your browsing sessions private. However, sometimes that doesn’t always work as intended and that there is still some work to be done to ensure a truly private browsing session. However, if you don’t mind using an alternative browser, then you might be interested to learn that the Tor Browser has officially launched for Android.
The Tor Browser for Android has been in the works for a while with its alpha released back in September last year. However, the Tor Project has announced that the first stable release is now available on Android and for those who are interested, they can go ahead and take the browser for a spin
For those who aren’t so technically inclined, the Tor network has remained something of a mystery due to the complicated steps needed in order to connect to it. However, the Tor Browser will help do away with some of those complications and make it a more straightforward process, thus bringing it to the mainstream.
Since the browser is based on Mozilla’s Firefox, there will be certain features and conveniences that you might recognize. Interestingly enough, Mozilla had previously announced that they would be exploring the possibility of integrating Tor connectivity into Firefox for a “super private” browsing mode. If you’re interested in checking out the Tor Browser for Android, head on over to the Play Store for the download.
