Orweb Private Web Browser Orweb: Private Web Browser

Yesterday we learnt how one can browser privately using Orbit app on an Android device. Today we are going to see how Orweb works and why when used with Orbit App

To begin with, Orweb is a privacy enhanced web browser that support proxies. Just like Orbit, it serves the purpose of private and anonymous web browsing on Android while visiting any website, even if it’s normally censored, monitored, or on the hidden web. The browser evades tracking and censorship by bouncing your encrypted traffic several times through computers around the world, instead of connecting you directly like VPNs and proxies. This process takes a little longer, but the strongest privacy and identity protection available is worth the wait.

When used with the Orbot app, this web browser provides enhanced privacy features. Through Tor, it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked. It also blocks cookies, keeps no local history, disables Flash, and requires only Internet permissions, keeping you safe from malicious content. Finally, beyond Tor, it can support any HTTP proxy server. So if your office, school or region block any websites, Orweb is able to bypass almost every kind of network restriction.

This app requires you to first install & activate Orbot: Tor on Android app.
