Hi! I'm Mike Tigas, and I work on a ton of security / anticensorship / investigative journalism ish stuff. By day, I'm an investigative journalist and news applications developer at ProPublica. He also works on other open-source software for the good of the world — like Tabula, tool that helps extract data tables from PDF files.



Onion Browser is a free, open-source web browser for iPhone and iPad that tunnels traffic through the Tor anonymity network and provides extra features to help you browse the internet safely and privately.


Onion Browser has been featured in The New York Times, Salon, TechCrunch, Boing Boing, Gizmodo, and The Guardian and the app is recommended by many in the Tor community.

A glut of Tor iOS apps exists today, and that’s partially because many of them are forks of the original Onion Browser codebase. Unfortunately, many of these forks are unmaintained or introduce scary security issues — like leaking unsecured traffic by loading ads before Tor connects. Onion Browser has received an independent third party security audit.

Mike Tigas, the lead developer of Onion Browser, is a volunteer core contributor to the Tor Project and is committed to keeping Onion Browser free, open source, and transparently developed.

You can get Onion Browser or read more about it here:
https://onionbrowser.com/

There are also non-Patreon methods of supporting Onion Browser. You can donate via the in-app "tip jar", which uses in-app purchases. Or, you can send one-off PayPal or Bitcoin donations here: Donation Options

Supporters at the $5+/month level will be listed in the supporters section of the app credits. (To protect your privacy, this is optional. You can also use an alias/handle.)

Supporters at the $10+/month level will receive an invite to the beta testing program. (Please note: As of Summer 2018, new builds have slowed to a trickle, so invites may not go out right away.)


The app used to cost $1, but is now a free App Store download -- because of this, any financial support is appreciated. Even a $1/month pledge would help tremendously. Feel free to click "Become a Patron" and enter any amount.

Onion Browser is developed by a very small team and your support allows continued development of the app and the supporting frameworks.

Supporting Onion Browser helps make safe, anonymous, censorship-resistant web browsing accessible to iPhone and iPad users everywhere.

Thanks!
