[App] Orbot – Proxy with Tor
Orbot is a free proxy app that empowers other apps to use the internet more securely. Orbot uses Tor to encrypt your Internet traffic and then hides it by bouncing through a series of computers around the world. Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security known as traffic analysis.

On some devices, aSamsung app is listening on the same network port that Orbot needs. Download ‘SockStat’ from Google Play. Look for the app on port 9050. Force stop and disable that app. You can also try to change Orbot’s “Tor SOCKS” setting under the Debug section to 9051 or AUTO. You can see the fix in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yK-nK4F67_g
Orbot is the only app that creates a truly private internet connection. As the New York Times writes, when a communication arrives from Tor, you can never know where or whom it’s from. Tor won the 2012 Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) Pioneer Award.
ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTES: Orbot is the safest way to use the Internet on Android. Period. Orbot bounces your encrypted traffic several times through computers around the world, instead of connecting you directly like VPNs and proxies. This process takes a little longer, but the strongest privacy and identity protection available is worth the wait.
PRIVATE WEB SURFING: Use with Orfox, the most anonymous way to access any website, even if it’s normally blocked, monitored, or on the hidden web. Get Orfox: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=info.guardianproject.orfox
PRIVATE CHAT MESSAGING: Use ChatSecure with Orbot to chat confidentially with anyone, anywhere for free. Get ChatSecure: https://goo.gl/O3FfS

PRIVACY FOR EVERYONE: Tor can help you confidentially research a competitor, get around the Facebook block at school, or circumvent a firewall to watch sports at work.
