Anyone looking to surf the web on their iPhone without running the risk of being snooped on by the National Security Agency may want to check out a browser created by web developer Mike Tigas. As Business Insider reports, Tigas’s Onion Browser connects your iPhone or iPad to the Tor network that uses multi-level encryption to send your traffic through several different servers before sending it through to your device and thus keeps you completely anonymous on the web. The browser costs $0.99 and is available on Apple’s App Store, although the app apparently won’t work if you’re living in China, Iran or France.
