    So I made another post in which I added this at the end of my post in Computers&IT but I figured I might as well post it here too as I see it as a useful post of it's own for Android Lounge.

    So lets get on with it and show you all how to use Tor on your device!

    Follow these instructions and make your device anonymous. This is the beauty of Android. We, as Android users, can use Tor on our devices. (only on Opera and Tor's limited browser.. for now.)

    First, download the app Orbot. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.torproject.android&hl=en

    Now either get Opera or Orweb from playstore.

    Orweb will already have it working but with Opera it's a little more trickier.

    1. Open up Opera Mobile and type "about:config" in the address bar, then hit go.

    2. Scroll down until you see the "Proxy" section and select it.

    3.Under "HTTP server" and "HTTPS server" enter

    4. Click the checkboxes next to "Use HTTP" and "Use HTTPS" to enable proxy usage for the respective protocols within Opera Mobile.

    5. Click "Save" and restart Opera Mobile.

    Tor suggests to disable Javascript within Opera Mobile to avoid potential address leaks. Also once you have Orbot up and you see the green onion, load up Opera Mobile and visit the following page to check if your setup is OK:


    Keep Orbot running in the background.

    Once you have all of this done you will be free to browse your mobile internet anonymously!


    Have fun. ;)
