Tor with Mobian on Pinephone
#1
Does anyone have any experience with Tor on a Pinephone with Mobian? Thanks!
#2
Are you talking about installing and using Tor browser or forcing all of your traffic through the Tor network?

I can say, that downloading the tor browser and running it from the command line does not work. There only comes a message stating that the cpu does not support a specific feature. I assume that this is because the bundle isn't compiled for the cpu architecture of the pine phone. May it would work by compiling it yourself.

Yes, that was what I was thinking of doing but as @cybercow noted it does not work.

While a working Tor Browser is ideal, til that moment comes, here is what I do:



  1. Follow the video posted in my previous reply to route all firefox through tor (Or I use pi torified router when I want to route everything through tor).
  2. I keep Firefox (tor as proxy from prev link I sent) setup as my 24/7 "Tor browser". I only do "anonymous" browsing-- nothing tied to identity on this to avoid linking it to browser fingerprint/link my accounts.
  3. I installed Falkon browser and use it for my regular web traffic. Falkon works well (smooth scrolling). I suggest trying it out, this browser is worth a look.


One could try a setup like this until Tor browser runs/loads correctly.
