    For a list of these networks, there's: I2P, Freenet, Zeronet, Lokinet, and Yggdrasil.

  • GitHub repo OnionBrowser

    An open-source, privacy-enhancing web browser for iOS, utilizing the Tor anonymity network

    Project mention: Does anyone know if the tor VPN app is legit? Also, is the onion browser the right one? I’ve been reading a lot about scammers and phishing, just want to make sure it’s the right Onion Browser. Thanks | reddit.com/r/TOR | 2021-04-19

    And I just looked at the screenshot again and saw this is for iOS. In which case, the Tor Project only recommends Onion Browser, which I don't think is official, but it is endorsed by then.
