If you want to browse the web anonymously, the official Tor browser for Android is here to give you complete web privacy. Now you can visit any websites from your Android smartphone without leaving any internet footprint.
Tor Browser For Android
A couple of days ago, Tor Project announced an official web browser for Android devices. The new browser has been launched is in an experimental stage but an alpha version has been released in Google PlayStore as of now.
However, before the release of the official Tor browser for Android, the company has already released Tor-based browsers in Google’s Playstore for surfing the web secretly. The Tor Browser uses a set of decentralized relays for hiding the internet footprint of users making it almost impossible for ads, location trackers and law enforcement agencies to track you on the web.

Tor Browser isolates each website you visit so third-party trackers and ads can’t follow you. Any cookies automatically clear when you’re done browsing.
