  • Fail

    By •holy_priest•
    Not Working, no connection to tor network
  • Lags very bad. Sometimes doesn’t connect

    By Let Justice Be Done
    This browser used to work OK, but now it takes forever just to connect and sometimes doesn’t connect at all. Going to the webpage for support was not helpful either. Devs, please update this app and fix these connectivity issues.

  • Nice but forgot password

    By DeepThoughtBrony
    This is a really nice app but I forgot my password and it doesn’t give any way to recover it, so now it’s totally useless to me. It needs someway to reset or recover a password or something, imo. I hope the developers see this and have a solution.

  • Garbage

    By Manduck2k3
    Never trust a $2 app for privacy!
  • Malicious Software...?

    By Jude450
    Once I downloaded this, the incognito mode on my google chrome app stopped working. The app wouldn’t let me use the Incognito feature without doing the not-a-robot test that they give you when starting some sort of account online. I looked up the reason for this and it could have been from malicious software on my phone. I deleted the red onion app and restarted my phone and everything was fine in google chrome.
