There are a lot of smartphone users which like to use the Incognito mode when they’re browsing on a device. This might be a safer way to visit some websites without being detected, so tech geeks have discovered ways to make things easier for ”anonymous” online surfers.
The Tor Browser can block intruders
Considering the people’s tendency to access certain websites anonymously, the Tor Project launched a new search engine. From now on, Android users can try the alpha version of Tor, a browser dedicated to surfing through the online environment without uncovering your ID.
In addition, the new browser is safer than other search engines, because it allows you to block hackers and possible trackers or stockers. Also, through it, you can access un-indexed parts of the Internet, like Dark Web and Deep Web. Besides, you can download it for free.
You can start by downloading Tor’s apps for free
If you can’t wait to see how Tor works on your smartphone, you can start by downloading its apps. You can find Orbot and Orfox in Google Play. The best part is that these two apps are available for free as well and will help you access Dark Web. However, keep in mind that one app won’t work without the other. You will need both of them for surfing anonymously and accessing Dark Web.
Another well-known element of Tor is the Onion Router. This compound works as a protective layer against intruders and virus attacks. According to Android Police, a more developed and safer version of the browser could be released next year. Until then, Android fans are more than welcomed to try the Alpha version.
The information is new, so you probably need more details before downloading the browser and its apps on your device. Start a research and find out if it suits your needs.
