Orbot is a mobile phone proxy application that offers Internet users the ability to access the web, email and messaging without being monitored or blocked by their mobile Internet providers. Developed by The Tor Project, Orbot brings the security and functionality of Tor to the Android mobile operating system.
A typical VPN uses a single server, while Orbot uses Tor to route your traffic through various tunnels, making sure no trace is left behind. All traffic that passes through its various relays is encrypted repeatedly.
The user interface is very simple to learn, so you don't have to configure anything for basic use. But more advanced configurations are also available for more experienced users, allowing them to configure it as they see fit.
Orbot contains Tor and Libevent. It provides not only a local proxy, but also the standard proxy interfaces used by the Tor network. Orbot can transparently hide and encrypt all traffic on your Android mobile device, provided it has the appropriate permissions and system libraries.
The Orbot application is available on Android systems via the Google Play Store. You can't download it for pc windows yet, as it is not yet available on pc. The only way to enjoy it is to use an Android emulator.
