Tor Browser para Android

O Tor Browser para Android é o único navegador oficial suportado e desenvolvido pelo Tor Project. É como o Tor Browser para desktop, mas no seu aparelho Android. Algumas das funcionalidades mais importantes do Tor Browser para Android incluem: reduzir o monitoramento entre websites, defender contra vigilância, resistir "browser fingerprinting" e evadir censura.

DESCARREGAR E INSTALAÇÃO

Existe o Tor Browser for Android e o Tor Browser for Android (alpha). Utilizadores não técnicos devem usar o Tor Browser for Android, visto que é estável e com menor probabilidade de ter erros. Tor Browser for Android is available on Play Store, F-Droid and the Tor Project website. É bastante arriscado descarregar o Tor Browser de fora destas três plataformas.

Google Play

COMEÇAR O TOR BROWSER FOR ANDROID PELA PRIMEIRA VEZ

When you run Tor Browser for the first time, you will see the option to connect directly to the Tor network, or to configure Tor Browser for your connection with the settings icon.

Connect

Connect to Tor Browser for Android

Na maioria dos casos, escolher "Ligar" irá permitir-lhe ligar à rede Tor sem qualquer configuração adicional. Once tapped, changing sentences will appear at the bottom of the screen, indicating Tor’s connection progress. If you are on a relatively fast connection, but this text seems to get stuck at a certain point, see the Troubleshooting page for help solving the problem.

Configurar

Configure Tor Browser for Android

Se sabe que a sua ligação é censurada, deve seleccionar o ícone das definições. O Tor Browser vai guiá-lo por uma série de opções de configurações. The first screen will tell you about the status of the Tor Network and provide you the option to configure a Bridge ('Config Bridge'). If you know your connection is censored, or you have tried and failed to connect to the Tor network and no other solutions have worked, tap on 'Config Bridge'. You will then be taken to the Circumvention screen to configure a pluggable transport.

EVASÃO

Os retransmissores de ponte são retransmissores Tor que não estão listados no diretório Tor público. As pontes são úteis para os utilizadores do Tor que estejam em regimes repressivos e para pessoas que queiram uma segurança extra porque estão preocupados que alguém saiba que estão a contactar um endereço IP público de um retransmissor Tor.

To use a pluggable transport, tap on the settings icon when starting Tor Browser for the first time. The first screen tells you about the status of the Tor network. Tap on 'Config Bridge' to configure a bridge.

Censored internet on Tor Browser for Android

The next screen provides the option to either use a built-in bridge or custom bridge. With the "Use a Bridge" option, you will have two options: "obfs4" and "meek-azure".

MANAGING IDENTITIES

New Identity

New Identity on Tor Browser for Android

When Tor Browser is running, you would see so in your phone's notification panel along with the button "NEW IDENTITY". Tapping on this button will provide you with a new identity. Unlike in Tor Browser for Desktop, the "NEW IDENTITY" button in Tor Browser for Android does not prevent your subsequent browser activity from being linkable to what you were doing before. Selecting it will only change your Tor circuit.

SECURITY SETTINGS

Security settings and security slider on Tor Browser for Android

Security settings disable certain web features that can be used to compromise your security and anonymity. Tor Browser for Android provides the same three security levels that are available on desktop. You can modify the security level by following given steps:

  • Tap on a button of 3 vertical dots in URL bar.
  • Scroll down and tap on "Security Settings".
  • You can now select an option i.e. Standard, Safer or Safest.

UPDATING

O Tor Browser deve ser sempre atualizado. Se continuar a utilizar uma versão antiga do programa, expõe-se a sérios problemas de segurança, que comprometem a sua privacidade e anonimato. You can update Tor Browser automatically or manually.

With Tor Browser closed, remove it from your system by uninstalling it using your device's settings. Depending on your mobile device's brand, navigate to Settings > Apps, then select Tor Browser and tap on the "Uninstall" button. Afterwards, download the latest Tor Browser release and install it.

More about Tor on mobile devices

Orfox

Orfox was first released in 2015 by The Guardian Project, with the aim of giving Android users a way to browse the internet over Tor. Over the next three years, Orfox continuously improved and became a popular way for people to browse the internet with more privacy than standard browsers, and Orfox was crucial for helping people circumvent censorship and access blocked sites and critical resources. In 2019, Orfox was sunsetted after the official Tor Browser for Android was released.

Orbot

Orbot is a free proxy app that empowers other apps to use the Tor network. Orbot uses Tor to encrypt your Internet traffic. Then you can use it with other apps installed on your mobile device to circumvent censorship and protect against surveillance. Orbot can be downloaded and installed from Google Play. Check out our Support portal to know if you need both Tor Browser for Android and Orbot or either one.

Tor Browser for iOS

There is no Tor Browser for iOS. Nós recomendamos uma aplicação para iOS chamada de Onion Browser, que é de código aberto, usa reencaminhamento Tor e é desenvolvido por alguém que trabalha de perto com o Tor Project. Contudo, a Apple exige que os navegadores no iOS usem algo chamado de Webkit, que impede que o Onion Browser tenha as mesmas proteções de privacidade que o Tor Browser.

Tor Browser for Windows Phone

There is currently no supported method for running Tor on older Windows Phones but in case of the newer Microsoft-branded/promoted phones, same steps on Tor Browser on Android can be followed.
