Red Onion is a full-fledged Tor-powered browser that offers you a REAL solution, with multiple tabs, customizable start screen, built in ad-blocker, history, bookmarks, and much much more.

  • Crashes constantly with iOS 11.2

    Red Onion has been a fantastic app for the past two years I’ve had it but now, after finally updating my iPhone 6S to iOS 11, it crashes when loading sites almost every single time. Honestly, I blame Apple for this but unfortunately Red Onion is now completely broken for me.
  • Nice fairly secure browse

    Title says it all, sometimes tot browsers hardly function this one works very well
  • Disappointed

    By TopZoeGod
    Waste of time and money no matter what I do i can not connect to tor, no matter bridges, uninstall, reinstall. NOTHING....
  • Updates

    Will we see any updates soon??
  • Ugly app design

    By Hazard24/7
    Please make the app logo look better but grate app worth every cent
  • Update this Allready!!!

    By Bookman
    Red Browser has gone a year and a half with out updates. That means that all the security holes that have been found in the last year and a half are still active in Red Browser. Tor 3.0 has been released, spread into the wild, and there sites using it...but Red Browser can't access said sites because it doesn't support Tor 3.0. Come on Mr. Mody! Update your previously stellar program. Lots of us are hoping you will.
  • Great!

  • It alright if you absolutely need a tor

    By Tattoo joe1000
    Slow, but if you have ALOT of patients you will eventually finish what should of taken no more than 30 min. I understand that it's a tor browser and automatically gonna be slower. But I have a brand new iPhone and it has taken me 2 days to do something I did with an android tor in 10 min
  • Not working in 🇸🇦

    I’ve been working on this app a long time ago, but suddenly with no reason the app itself just stopped connecting to the “red onion”. Please fix this issue as faster as you can.
  • Not worth $2.

    WebRTC and other common de-anonymizing attacks are not blocked by this browser. This is an easy fix and is present on many other tor browser apps. It is not secure. You are not safe using this.
