Cant believe I spent money on this 1/5
I would give zero stars if possible not once was I able to get this browser to work tried it at home nothing just got to 5% tried it at a public wifi. Same thing. Save your money.
Extremely slow 1/5
Best Tor browser for iphone 5/5
By Unique-Horn Unicorn
Well worth the price. This is the best thing going.
I used the other Tor Onion browser before, but after I paid for the ad-free version they changed it to a subscription service and raised the price!
So I tried Red Onion out and it's so much better. It doesn't have the bugs that other one did. It's faster and more user-friendly.
IOS and phone service 1/5
Can’t use the app anymore thanks to new iOS updates and phone service providers. Use to be a great app someone should update it so it’ll work again. Useless now.
This is a great browser for people who don't know too much about tech. It's a little slower but still it's nice. If you know about tech then it's honestly better to hide your own IP address and such using a program for google.
Was great, now is broken 1/5
By Mithrandir Prime
I loved this app. Used it for years. Then came the 1-2 punch of iOS 11 and T-Mobile. No IPv6 support in Red Onion, even if you understand torrc enough to configure it yourself. I'm guessing that the author hasn’t integrated the latest TOR into this app in a couple of years.
So, no joy if using a t-mobile iPad or using WiFi to a T-Mobile hotspot phone.
— - Old review — -
So glad I found this app.
I started off with a competing iPad TOR product. It was buggy as heck, had very poor compatibility, and the author talked about all the features that were coming in "the fall", like tabbed browsing. Fall came and went, then winter, spring, and summer. Then 2014, 2015, 2026, and 2017.
So, I looked for a new TOR product, and amid the complaints that one or another was fake, I found this one. All the features that the other browser had been promising for over a year, and way less bugs. Pages load faster and look better. It's just an improvement in every way.
Best thing, it uses a ton less bandwidth than my old browser. I never knew that the other app had a "bandwidth sucking" bug until I started using this one. Doesn't burn through the mobile plan in the field, and it's so much more responsive than the other browser when on WiFi.
The way to go 5/5
Good app 5/5
Dark Web 3/5
Does this browser give access to the dark web?
Don't use this. 2/5
It does appear to work (somewhat), but is not actively maintained, not open source, and not endorsed by the tor project for various reasons.
There are currently no iOS apps worthy of using for improved anonymity. Most of these reviewers are likely unaware of what they're reviewing and why... using a tor based browser for everyday clear web activities.
Good effort from the author. iOS has limitations that make utilizing tor very tricky. I don't mind donating $1.99 for a few hours of testing. However, I don't trust this app any more than the author... who closed the project website for an "ethical dilemma" in regards to the project.
TL;DR - Don't trust 99% of these reviews (or this app).
Stuck at 5% 1/5
I paid for this and I'm stuck at 5% all the time every time
It's a awesome browser would be 5 star if upgraded and had a few bugs worked out and add security upgrades to further secure the app.
Loving it so far 5/5
Definitely better than safari! The ability to clean all web data is great. I'm liking it a lot.
Best Tor Browser 5/5
I spent a couple of weeks trying many of the free tor browsers available in the App Store, and although a few allowed me to navigate many spaces on the deep web, none of them offered a way to actually view videos and media like this browser does. I was hesitant to spend money, fearing that I would also face the same restrictions on different sites blocked by the free browsers, but Red Onion actually lets me freely browse a ton of addresses that seem arbitrarily blocked by the others. So far this is well worth the purchase and I would highly recommend it to anyone finding dissatisfaction with the free web clients they've tried before.
great browser 5/5
keep up the great work love the browser
dont work dont buy 1/5
By why gee

So I have a modern iphone 6s and the best wifi 100/60 Mbps and I have to wait minutes just to resolve a DNS address like Google which is super fast resolving website

THE BEST!!! 5/5
By BOSS-CLASS DRAE
iOS could have received a better gift. You get privacy, security, anonymity and you access the dark web!
A better browser 5/5
A better browser and definitely more secure. Two thumbs up.
I didn't realize how much content was out there, it's like a whole new world, a dark world.
Great App! 5/5
The app is great! It works very well it's very useful. Amazing app!
I want a refund 1/5
I get this error message
Description: Unable to locate the server requested --- the server does not have a DNS entry. Perhaps there is a misspelling in the server name, or the server no longer exists. Double-check the name and try again.
Easy to use 5/5
Red browser 5/5
By Surviver boy
it s my first time to use are very good
This app has become unusable 2/5
Every time I leave the app and stay a minute without using it, it disconnects and reloads everything all over again forcing me to resign into account I just signed into a minute ago. Deleting.
Very nice 5/5
Very simple application to use to get some additional security and anonymous Internet access. While not perfect, for the ease-of-use and speed of the application it is very good. I have been really happy with it.
Pretty cool, but tor bridges broke 4/5
It's really great, but it's stuck on a 25%. Great app tho

Better than Safari 5/5
By Cletus B.
Better security and more privacy... what more could we ask for from our technology these days. It's nice to have it require a pin or Touch ID to access, so when you hand your phone to someone (to look at or find something for you), they don't come across any personal information, "suggestions" (from your history), etc. Also I've noticed lately that when we clear Safari's cache, cookies, history (from the settings); and click advanced - website data, some cookies/websites won't delete... even when you delete them one by one, they go away until go back into that selection tab, they just reappear. I have a feeling it has something to do with my location being fetched randomly by the time zone setting... (which I have always had turned off). I'd delete Safari if I could.
In response to the Reviewer consented about code 5/5
Good point that this Tor-based app requires a login/ID, which is something some may be wary of (though, if one really needs to "hide", it's prob best not to use a cell phone), and that the app sends out a tracker that it's being loaded. I verified this by opening Red while the tracking blocker Disconnect was running, and sure enough, trackers were activated...but, they were also blocked by my Disconnect app, so perhaps that is a solution for that pesky login to Red the Reviewer was paranoid with: use it in tandem (though, I have little knowledge about how robust Disconnect's built in VPN is, which is required for operation).
I've heard a lot about the deep web and the dark web. I get the idea behind these "tor" browsers. However, I don't really understand exactly how to properly use red onion browser. I wish I knew a little more on how to use this app. It certainly by all accounts works. I just don't know how to properly use it to search the deep web.
love it 5/5
