    This might interest only a handful of people, but I've just tested Orweb and I'm finally able to browse the web using Tor.
    Tor works on 10.3-img_20140519_134442.png


    And the good news is that you can protect all your apps ' traffic simply by adding the local proxy (localhost:8118) to your Wifi connection profile.
    Tor works on 10.3-img_20140519_135902.png

    On top of that, the Hub in 296 has got a live notification feature I wasn't aware of. I can see real time traffic used by Orbot, straight from the hub. Tapping the notification brings up an Android Notification viewer, similar to the dropdown notification drawer you get on Android.

    Woot!!
    That means I'll need to switch to 10.3 soon...

    Also, OP... can you please tell if the traffic for native apps also goes through TOR?

    Thanks for the nice find!

    If you configure your connection to use the proxy, then all traffic goes through Tor. If Orbot fails then you can't connect to anything any more which is a good way of preventing data leaks.

    The point is TOR is to protect anonymity. So why ask the question? I'm interested out of principle.

    Did you get orbot from snap? I tried it and it wouldn't connect. What do I need to do to get a connection? Thanks

    Yes indeed, but I also got Orweb to test the connection. Try to go through the wizard again and make sure you don't select the rooted option.

    Also I'm on 296, so let us know if you're on 442 and things are different...

    I'm on. 296 with. 442 radio and I've been both apps (orbot and Orweb) and have selected the non-root selection but the wizard doesn't have me do anything to configure, that's where I'm confused.

    I've tested OpenVPN apps and it's still a no go.
    And regarding apps, Firefox somehow bypasses the Wifi proxy, so I'm thinking other apps do as well. I think it has something to do with DNS resolution.

    And for people who can't connect, check the logs in Orbot. It gives out pretty detailed info.

    "Snap" is the best stop-gap solution for Android apps while we wait for BlackBerry to get its act together...

    RT: TOR is NOT PRISM Proof | Deep Dot Web

    Posted via CB10
    In short:
    • data leaks through browser add-ons
    • nasty agencies monitor nodes

    It's nothing new. Tor can be as secure as you want it to be, just like Android, but at some point you've got to take into consideration the risks vs the costs related to protecting your anonymity/data. And if you're the target of a country's security agency, you know better than using a smartphone anyway...

    But what if searching the net using Google could have a negative impact on your credit rating and get banks to offer you an interest rate for your first mortgage 1 point higher than that of your neighbour? etc.
    There are lots of reasons to be anonymous online when searching, browsing the web or using apps.

    ofutur, thank you very much for sharing. I am in fact one of those handful of people!

    This is a step in the right direction in terms of anonymity on BB10, but alas, I wish OpenVPN would finally be added. I am glad you made mention of that as well in one of your posts as I have been asking people on 10.3 about it to no avail. I can at least hold out hope that once the official release happens that it may be packed in there? I can hope...

    There's been no move on the OpenVPN front since they've added the drivers and config scripts... It's just like with S/Mime and PGP, management at BlackBerry still thinks only enterprises need it and so they only offer that through BES, totally ignoring the SMEs which can benefit from being able to just sign the emails they send to their customers and clients.
    I wouldn't be surprised if OpenVPN was only added to support some line of hardware to make some of their partners happy.

    That's interesting... I wonder what's preventing it from connecting to the control ports...
    Are you using a Wifi connection?
