Orbot is a official TOR client for Android devices, Which enable you connect to the TOR network on the move. Although you can configure your all application to access TOR network via Orbot, Orweb (browser) and Gibberbot ( IM client) are the specially developed to work with Orbot.
On Rooted device with iptables-capable ROM, Orbot can transparently proxy all TCP tra
ffic. That means These rooted device your all applications can be forced to use TOR network, but if your deviceis not rooted you will have to manually configure HTTP or SOCKS proxy settings for
specific applications. But don’t worry, if you don’t want to dirty your hand in these technical
things. Using Orweb browser and Giggerbot IM client you can filly enjoy anonymity and circumvent internet censorship.
Other than Orweb browser, Orbot can also work on firefox browser for android with the help of Add-on named proxymob, it’s also developed by The Guardian Project. But sadly proxymob doesn’t work with latest version of Firefox browser for mobile.
