This next Tip is actually for Android Smartphone, Specifically a Android Tracfone that is a (yuk :/ Google-phone)..aka throw-away spyphone:How to browse securely on a Tracfone?
I have this Smartphone that is a Tracfone. Its a decent cheap ZTE made one with Android. The phone hardware itself I have no problem with. But its got Google crap built in which I hate and worse opening Chrome browser that it installs takes you to Tracfone crap with adds etc as its homepage. There is no changing it since Tracfone has it set this way. - - - - > Install Orbot then ---> Orfox
Orbot is a TOR network Proxy app.
Orfox is a custom Firefox browser for Android with Noscript and HTTPS Everywhere enabled already (note that same as all Firefox you have to make any other settings you want within Firefox settings after you install).
Read up on it here:https://www.ghacks.net/2017/09/10/a-look-at-orfox-a-tor-browser-for-android/
and Thanks to Guardian Projecthttps://guardianproject.info/apps/
Note this isn't exactly a tutorial on my part since I don't recall the exact sequence I used since I had to fiddle around with this for about n hour but finally got both Orbot and OrFox installed and they work.
First I installed
F-Droid and enabled the Guardian repositories , but it seemed Tracfone doesn't like this anyway.. IT would run the intall then it would report it failed. Even though I did enable the settings in Android, etc.
I had to fiddle around since Tracfone is set up to thwart such installs.
It never worked trying Google Play.
The process for Tracfone is to browse first (using chrome) to the Tracfone homepage, login phone number then browse search for app Orbot. then install. But not sure it worked
I think the deal was I Eventually I downloaded the .apk file.
Then same deal for Orfox.
At any rate it works. Now I just launch Orbot, then Orfox.
Now I can surf without Tracfone and Google eavesdropping on my browse traffic, etc.
And connect safely at coffee houses, etc. since TOR (Orbot) is a VPN in that respect and all the browser traffic is also HTTPS since HTTPS Everywhere.
