Many of you might know Tor Browser that is accessible on desktop and laptops and is said to be the key to accessing the dark alleys of the Internet (the deep Web). Well that’s not the sole benefit of the browser. Among others, Tor Browser truly protects your anonymity on the Internet which is something that we don’t see much on mobile. Now Tor Browser is also available on Android.
If you want to understand the difference between regular browsers and Tor (how they browse), refer the image below. In essence, Tor Browser redirects your IP through a number of other nodes after encrypting it. After it reaches the last node, it is decrypted and sent to its original destination. This can be helpful for journalists or whistleblowers who want to be a source of unbiased information for the masses.
