Orbot is a free proxy app, and it is available to use for anyone 12 or older.

A huge focus of Orbot’s is to encrypt your internet browsing information, with the use of several computers SDH said.

This encryption process makes internet browsing private, so watching and messaging anything you’d like remains for your eyes only.
