Used to work 1/5
Post purchase the App was working well for a short time. A little slow but that was to be expected. Fast forward a few weeks and it only loads a very small handful of sites, at most. All other sites I try to access thru this just sit there 'loading'. I am also still on an older version since every update has continued to break this application further, per the reviews.
The only recommendation I received to try to remedy this was to uninstall and reinstall the app. Basically the equivalent to "did you try to restart your (insert device name here)". Save your $$$ and look elsewhere.
Don't bother 1/5
Plays ad and not easy to stop it unless you pay I think. Forget about using TOR for iPad I think unless from a desktop or laptop.
Crooked Developers 1/5
I’m kinda angry and want my money back. When I download Tor Browser initially I was offered a free premium upgrade for a 5 star review which I did. I didn’t get my free upgrade so I purchased the app. When I updated it VIA the App Store Tor Browser turned in to / updated to TorVPN and now wants me to pay 4 bucks a week to use an app I already purchased. I want my money back NOW! How does Apple allow this scam to take place? My only guess would be that Apple gets a slice of the pie! I STILL WANT MY REFUND.
Peace be upon America 5/5

Absolute trash update 1/5
This app is called a ToR browser. That is its first and foremost function. When a new update absolutely destroys that function and replaces it with a different trash function, we have a problem. The update absolutely killed the ToR browser aspect, it wouldn't even load over the most reliable connections, and replaced it with a poorly integrated, poorly written VPN, with hundreds of other apps just like it.
Was great browser... 1/5
It was a great browser until the last update. Now it is just a garbage. Super slow, buggy and whole bunch of limitations. I guess developer just became too greedy and careless at the same time. Sad to see this browser die.
By milk may
All these people really think they are on the TOR network searching with bing....crazy.
God Awful 1/5
Jesus this app crashes every 5 seconds. At first I thought it was because I was using my "DL" phone and that's a 4s but after using this app on my iPhone 7 and having it c ash every time like on my iPhone 4s I deleted it. I would recommend you not download this app.
The Last update made the app useless. Don't update!!! 1/5
The browser doesn't work anymore.
Great Browser 1/5
Latest update is a scam to start charging monthly instead of a one time fee!
VPN subscription charge out of nowhere 1/5
I don’t recall this app telling me at any point that it was going to charge me $40 to renew a VPN subscription. Just totally out of nowhere. Awesome.
Latest update made it completely unusable 1/5
10 minutes and the page still hasn’t loaded, nor will any page load. Yeah it was slow before but now that they’ve added VPN it is now entirely useless. I have deleted the app and will never go back.
Interesting business model, guys. The app world is far too competitive for this sort of nonsense. Do you actually know how to write an app??
No browser in the bundle 1/5
By Jam Bo
Downloaded it but there is no browser. Just vpn.
Latest update killed all functionality 1/5
It worked great until Oct. 2017 when the new update killed everything. I paid for premium, and now I am stuck with limited functionality and it is now incapable of advancing past the most basic re-captcha.... useless
Ad for VPN is annoying 3/5
Considering I just wanted the tor service and paid for that not interested in seeing this intrusive ad everytime, so three stars for now.
Was ok, then update degraded experience 2/5
By Grawn 12345
Maybe the update did something for other users, but not for me. Biggest issue is speed.
New update destroyed 5 star rating. 2/5
New update feels like a cash grab. Removed some settings, and made the experience slow/clunky.
Crap App 1/5
By Cash 4 Chaos
This App was great before the VPN functionality just killed it thou !! I paid not to see Ad crap now it’s back !
FIX PLEASE!!...and I paid for this? Re: last 2 updates 1/5
#2-OK noticed newer update supposedly fixed iPad issues... not hardly. Still stuck in CAPTCHA land, supposedly VIRUS land & page WON'T LOAD land, it NEVER accepts the Captcha's. I've updated, unloaded, reloaded & reset still no go.
And what happens if you don't update? (I.e.: my phone) you get booted off during search! Devs please fix, till then I'm gonna check out Aloha, has good reviews, since it isn't one of the hundreds piggybacking off Tor browser, reading reviews they are experiencing all the same issues you caused. STILL THE WORST.... at least I screen capped my bookmarks & can reset them in a different browser....
#1-This update has me scrambling from a perpetual CAPTCHA land (even if I have bookmarked them) for a different private browser. I've used this for years it WAS the best, now faced with loosing all my bookmarks etc... sad to see a fine app as this go down the tubes. I paid for this originally, not gonna hold me hostage for better ratings or more $ either! Leaving the CAPTCHA land for greener pastures.....
PS- agree with all other reviews.The best is now the worst...
How do I keep it on? 3/5
The “VPN” display on my top left corner on my phone keeps turning off no matter what I do. Whether or not I keep the app open in the background it will stay on for a couple minutes then just turn itself off. Am I doing something wrong? Does background app refresh need to be on to keep it up or it this just a glitch? I payed for the dang thing, why is it acting funny? Plz help
Does not work on iPad 4 1/5
By this is not iphone quality
Previous version was much better. Deleted....
New version is a disaster 1/5
By Could have liked the app...
They had a browser that worked reasonably well. It had its limitations but overall was quite useable. The latest update, however, is terrible. It's slow, and even worse, they removed the blue bar that showed the progress of a page being loaded. Now, I can't tell whether a page is loading slowly, has stopped loading, or never began loading. Also, the refresh page icon does not work, and trying to reload a page using the address line also no longer works. Needs fixing asap.
Last update ruined this app 1/5
I was a big fan of this app. It had its quirks like the back button having a mind of its own but still, worth the price of privacy and pretty solid overall.
But what the hell...! This last update has killed it stone dead. As soon as you switch to another app, then try and load this again you have lost your connection and it simply won't reload no matter what you do, except by killing it and starting again.
I don't know what QA process these guys use but I am amazed how cruddy this suddenly became.
When I complain I get no response. I want my money back. Honestly, don't bother with this.
By break the norm
Paid, not a whole lot, but paid nonetheless for the "premium version" with no ads. Then the update popups kept on popping up so I did the update. Now it's demanding $40/yr for a vpn subscription. No thanks. I already subscribe to a vpn service. Deleting the app.
Ummm no.., 1/5
By Bella serenity
Until someone contacts me back this app gets only a zero as to write a review. I was absolutely loving the service for my PAID app and now it wants me to pay weekly!! This app WAS the best but after so much time they take you for more money. Until someone contacts myself or my husband back (we have both been trying to reach a HUMAN) we will continue to diss your product!!!!
Just kill time 1/5
By Matin Rahman
It's not free don't install apps without payment, if u want to use few seconds it's ok
The latest update ruined the app. 1/5
First off they started charging, not a little, a lot. I liked the app enough that i subscribed. But not only did they start charging, they messed with the whole app. The browser with a fluently encoded vpn is not the first screen you see, now you sign in to the vpn, and transfer to a browser, and hopefully by that point app hasn’t crashed yet. The new update also has problems running the browser in landscape mode. I’ve only gotten it to turn sideways once in the two days I’ve been using it.
I cancelled my subscription before being charged luckily they gave a free week. Unfortunately, i will never try the paid version of this app again, and now need to find a new TOR browser.
Dudes. How do you sleep releasing a flawed update at the same time that you start charging for your product? You had the best browser, and I’m sure many of us would consider paying your extraordinary $40 a year subscription, but not after this. really shot yourselves in the foot here.
Loaded reviews 1/5
So, I was chugging along dealing with this app - it’s not the best but I was getting used to it’s bad points and was resigned to it. For instance, the catchpas (sp?) were all jumbled so you can’t really fill them out. The browser back button is badly located if you’re using the keyboard I have cause you cant reach it. The list goes on. But I was all “whatevs, this is entertainig” and then all of a sudden the app stops and demands that I leave a five star review or else I could not continue to use it. Which...OK...I paid MONEY for this???? So....I’m not sure where you guys get off demanding crap from me when I already gave you money?
I have no way to know if that was the only weird demand that the developers were going to hold the app I PAID FOR hostage about because at that point I wanted to never use this app again because I don’t like ppl that lie. And that’s what this is. If you don’t leave them 5 stars you forfeit your money. So, just for the record, this is how they got such a high star rating - by hijacking ppl after they gave them money. So that’s who you’re dealing with here.
What happened ??? 2/5
The new update? Can't browse anymore and nothing but offers to upgrade to a paid version? Oh plz. Moving on. Thanks but no thanks. I pay for too many bills already. Bye bye VPN browser.
Used to be a great app 1/5
This app worked perfect when it was just a Tor browser. Now it’s a tor-browser plus a vpn all in one. Interface is horrible, ugly and confusing.
Great until the today’s update 1/5
Loved this app but now it’s trash. None of my bookmarks are loading. There is no more security feature. Meaning that you can not use Touch ID anymore.
By Lucas Nassar
It was a decent app, but now with this update it's worthless, does not work, and where are my downloads?
Is it suppose to load as slow as possible?
App has been compromised. 1/5
Does NOT hide your identity, this app has been compromised. I checked my IP through the app and it showed my address and what city and state I was in. It also showed my IP address.
Just a browser 2/5
Often fails to use any proxy and functions as just a browser. Not reliable. Always check your IP address if you use this product. Pretty lame
After 19 years as a security analyst... 1/5
...what are you people thinking?! This app does nothing to protect your privacy. NOTHING!
Just go to any of the many web sites that will tell you what your IP is using this app then do the same with plain old Safari. Notice it’s the same IP!
This app is doing NOTHING to protect your identity. Nothing except maybe not accepting any cookies (I didn’t waste my time testing that).
The first step in protecting yourself online is to turn your brain on and not just trust that a piece of “security” software does what it says. The testing is just SECURITY 101.
You 5 star raters are just a pack of fools.
Not anonymous 1/5
Just tried this app, and it is not routing through VPN or Tor at all. My real IP is open to websites. There is no settings area to reconfigure it.
It's a scam 1/5
It's a scam and is the worst browser ever
Cannot get into the app any longer after the update, the app seems to have randomly changed my password?
Volume muted thus can't un mute 1/5
By User since start of Yahoo mail
While watching videos my volume was blocked enabling me to hear any sound and now I can't "un mute" it due to this aap. I have idea how to correct this. I thought this was supposed to be a privacy and protect me. I need help in correcting this issue please.
Does not hide IP!! 1/5
This app does not make your browsing anonymous. BE WARNED!
What happened?! 2/5
Worked on my 6s. Upgraded to 7 and now the app doesn't work. The Tor panel isn't even there anymore.
By The Tap Master
This app does *not* route your traffic through Tor. Check your IP address on this app and then again on Safari. You may be surprised to learn that they're the same! This means that you are not at all anonymous when using this app...
I just got scammed 1/5
By big_b 13
I clicked on the button to download this app because it said it was free and then it charged my $14. What the heck
Can I please get my money back? This feels wrong and I don't need the app nearly that bad; if I got scammed just from trying to get the app, I can't imagine how dangerous using this app would be.
It used to work... 1/5
This app used to work well. Now it doesn't even attempt to connect to the Tor network. Try checking your IP address in this app and in Safari. If it were connecting to Tor, they would be different (and Tor would likely have you halfway across the planet). Not sure who they are trying to fool or why, but I'm no longer a fan.
Nothing compared to the real TOR browser 1/5
The app won't hide your IP or spoof your country, it's just a browser but nothing will be hidden
Malware or Spyware! 1/5
This is malware or spyware do not use it!
Cannot access sites after paying 1/5
Websites are blank. Ads interferring. Asking for more money. Pure crap
Waste of 0.99 cents 1/5
So I upgraded to Tor Browser "Pro" because I thought I wasn't getting some privacy/Tor features promised in the description. How did I know I wasn't getting any Privacy? Because I still have the same F-ing IP address! Even after upgrading, the stupid app would not do what it promised to do, even after selecting "Canada" as my default country. My IP address remained the same as it would be without Tor. This POS software is a scam, and they should be sued or at least kicked off the App Store.
