I love this app. It secures your privacy and even gives you piece of mind proving what country you are in. My browsing is safe and protected. The speed is good to. In next version it would be cool to see how many spying attacks it saved me but I am so happy as it keeps no cache and stops any kind of breach of privacy. Can’t go wrong. I rarely review but this is worthy. 5 stars from me! Well done, better than a VPN and more secure than any other kind of Anonymous Onion style browser :)

Amazing ! *****

I use Tor on Mac so this iPhone browser was a no-brainer to get. Having all the security implemented in the browser app itself is more handy than setting up a VPN. I can enjoy all the freedom and privacy on my iPhone.
