  • Don’t Use It!

    By AphrodisiacDuo
    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    By cjbluez
    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...

  • Fantastic Browser!

    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!
