Description (last modified by arthuredelstein)

At the Montreal meeting we discussed how OONI data can be used to make the Tor Launcher workflow simpler and safer for users. Specifically, if we ask users the country in which they are located, Tor Launcher could, in some cases, decide to automatically connect to Vanilla tor, or to a specific bridge type, or to ask the users further questions. The basic data on whether Vanilla Tor will work from a given country should be available relatively soon.

This ticket can serve as a discussion/parent ticket for the data analysis, UX analysis UI design, Tor Launcher patching, etc.

Hi, letting you know that the UX team sees this ticket, and is on the list of tickets we're keeping track of. We're juggling a bunch of things right now, and haven't yet decided on a firm, month-by-month roadmap for 2018 yet. We'll loop you back in once we know when we can take this on.
