Never trust a $2 app for privacy!
Malicious Software...? 2/5
Once I downloaded this, the incognito mode on my google chrome app stopped working. The app wouldn’t let me use the Incognito feature without doing the not-a-robot test that they give you when starting some sort of account online. I looked up the reason for this and it could have been from malicious software on my phone. I deleted the red onion app and restarted my phone and everything was fine in google chrome.
How can I use Chinese? 5/5
I buy this app,ok,but open this app,all is English,I need use Chinese,How can I do?
Not great 1/5
Its not worth, opens and closes
BADLY OUTDATED - DON'T USE THIS APP! 1/5
THIS APPLICATION IS BADLY OUTDATED! BY USING IT YOU WOULD ALMOST CERTAINLY BE EXPOSED TO ALL TOR VULNERABILITIES WHICH WERE DISCOVERED IN TWO YEARS SINCE THIS APP WAS LAST UPDATED! YOU WOULD BE TAKING A DANGEROUS GAMBLE WITH YOUR PRIVACY IF YOU USE THIS APP!
Privacy is nice but it is slow and lacking most modern features. Please update for iPhone X.
Well satisfied 5/5
By Bu Cephalus
To date, well satisfied with app.
I can’t download anything anymore :(
Not as good as free onion browser 2/5
I tried using the free onion browser before getting this one. One of the key things I wanted to be able to do was download files to my phone. However, in all other respects the general performance/usability for web browsing is not as good as the free onion browser. I've found that I tend to use that one instead whenever I don't need to download something. Even when I do use red onion, it is often so hard to actually download whatever I wanted to download that I typically just give up.
My suggestion is just use the free onion browser.
Security is important but first you need to open the websites, this browser try to connect tor server and then just stays like that.
Stay away 1/5
By Zap B.
I am not usually suckered by a scammy app, but credit to red onion for getting $2 out of me. This app has not been updated in a year and does not work. It crashes instantly upon launch. Do not download.
Needs security fixes, DON'T RELY ON THIS FOR STRONG ANONYMITY 3/5
By poobop boy
Most of these things are not the fault of the developers. But seriously, don't use Bing and spoof user agent. Also the options for MAC address spoofing and changing the size of the screen to match default Tor settings would be great. Even better would be the option to shut down all background applications and notifications so that all traffic on the device was connected exclusively to this app.
All in all this is probably the best Tor app for iOS. It is far better than just using Safari for protecting your human rights. Also get Signal or Telegram and use that instead of SMS or 'Messages' if you really want to invoke your right to privacy (and it is a human right according to the UN).
Also, on the subject of abuse: don't use Tor for immoral or immoral and illegal things. And also do not clog the network with massive file downloads unless you are getting content restricted in your country. We need more normal people to use Tor in their day to day lives. Too many people have been conditioned to (albeit unknowingly) quote Joseph Gorbells in saying, "If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear". No, the fourth amendment was written to protect not the guilty but the innocent. Mass surveillance is a violation of your constitutional and human rights. Your ISP should not legally be allowed to sell your internet history to advertisers. Use Tor everyday, resist mass surveillance. Report immoral activity and abuses if Tor to the authorities if and when you see them. Get your friends and family members to use Tor. Donate to the Tor project! Be responsible and if you use iOS a lot, give this app a whirl!
Don’t Use It! 1/5
This app has not been updated. Updates are important in the tor community. And as current time its been one year since the last one. Security is important, don’t look over your shoulder. This developer has hardly released updates since initial release. Nevertheless, updating should be a few times a year, not one.
Wish I didn’t buy this 1/5
By Jp Staclz
I spent $2 on this app. I RARELY pay for apps. But the description for this app was what I was looking for. But every time I open it up. It says connecting, goes to 80% and hangs. Never connects. Waste of $2 a bit upset.
By sam lord
it operates like champ
Edit: Yep this is abandoned. The developer has released a regularly updated Red Onion 2 with no word of this fact here. I wouldn’t trust someone happy to trade your privacy and online safety for another $2.
Old review: Yeah I wouldn’t trust a TOR app that hasn’t been updated for over a year. The official pc version gets updated nonstop and this app must be light years behind in security and patches. There are plenty of other maintained tor apps on iOS and they also don’t ask for a 5 star review to unlock features.
Can’t use duck duck go 1/5
By Wizard 101 for mobile please
All it does is say forbidden. If you won’t let me choose my browser then you lose my business
Darkweb for iPhone hahaha 5/5
By TheGuy patreonRobbed
Please remember to use a VPN before accessing this app, or you have a 99.99% chance of getting hacked.
Can’t use select or share features 1/5
This app would be nice if you could select content and use “share” function to integrate pgp
But the function options disappear before you can press them making this app inferior to the TOB app.
**Developers please fix this issue or kindly refund me...
It is not working for Iran these days 4/5
It is not working for Iran these days.
Fantastic Browser! 5/5
By Braiden Psiuk
I’ve been using this browser for about a year now. The downloading/offline viewing features are incredible, and it does its job to ensure you remain anonymous when browsing. This is the perfect browser for anyone interested in being able to store files such as MP3s, MP4s, WEBMs, and so fourth. And for everything it’s doing in the background, I have to say, it’s very quick. It’s full of security options, HTTP options, and other various settings. There are a few small bugs- but it takes quite a long time and very specific circumstances to notice them. However. it’s totally worth the money. Browse quickly, securely, and with loads of additional features at your fingertips with Red Browser!
It works if you write a review
Not working 3/5
I loved this ... Until it stopped working about a month ago :/
Crashes constantly with iOS 11.2 1/5
Red Onion has been a fantastic app for the past two years I’ve had it but now, after finally updating my iPhone 6S to iOS 11, it crashes when loading sites almost every single time. Honestly, I blame Apple for this but unfortunately Red Onion is now completely broken for me.
Nice fairly secure browse 5/5
Title says it all, sometimes tot browsers hardly function this one works very well
Waste of time and money no matter what I do i can not connect to tor, no matter bridges, uninstall, reinstall. NOTHING....
Will we see any updates soon??
Ugly app design 5/5
Please make the app logo look better but grate app worth every cent
Update this Allready!!! 2/5
Red Browser has gone a year and a half with out updates.
That means that all the security holes that have been found in the last year and a half are still active in Red Browser.
Tor 3.0 has been released, spread into the wild, and there sites using it...but Red Browser can't access said sites because it doesn't support Tor 3.0.
Come on Mr. Mody! Update your previously stellar program. Lots of us are hoping you will.
It alright if you absolutely need a tor 3/5
By Tattoo joe1000
Slow, but if you have ALOT of patients you will eventually finish what should of taken no more than 30 min. I understand that it's a tor browser and automatically gonna be slower. But I have a brand new iPhone and it has taken me 2 days to do something I did with an android tor in 10 min
Not working in 🇸🇦 1/5
I’ve been working on this app a long time ago, but suddenly with no reason the app itself just stopped connecting to the “red onion”.
Please fix this issue as faster as you can.
Not worth $2. 1/5
WebRTC and other common de-anonymizing attacks are not blocked by this browser. This is an easy fix and is present on many other tor browser apps. It is not secure. You are not safe using this.
It does exactly what it should 10/10
Best tor browser by far!! 5/5
If you are interested in keeping your internet activity as secret as is possible for most people, Download this App!! But take your time learning how Tor works and how to better secure your data even even though your running this browser......Take it from an ex dark web “entrepreneur” who has.....well nvm I can just say that I’m sure you can truly feel free to do whatever you desire with the aid of these programs.....
Another loser tor browser, Never connects
Hasn’t been updated in a very long time. 2/5
Security focused apps should at least be updated to address the latest vulnerabilities and support improvements.
Please fix it.... 4/5
I love this app but it is very unstable and glitchy. Especially on the new iPad Pros. I hope you guys didn’t stop supporting this app.
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).
