Description (last modified by gk)

Tor Browser on Android is a thing and will be even more so shortly when we'll release the first stable release. However, the instructions on https://bridges.torproject.org/howto are desktop-only. We need to adapt the text so that mobile Tor Browser users need to know as well how they should add bridges obtained to their Tor Browser.

Do we have instructions for Android somewhere? I don't have an Android phone, so I cannot give it a shot myself.

We may also want to provide instructions for onion browser on iOS.

We recently published the Tor Browser for Android manual: https://tb-manual.torproject.org/mobile-tor/ and there are some details there

Thanks for the link, pili. It's best to link to tb-manual instead of replicating setup instructions on BridgeDB. How about we change the text in the box on this page to the following:


How to start using your bridges

First, you need to download Tor Browser. Our Tor Browser User Manual explains how you can add your bridges to Tor Browser. If you are using Windows, Linux, or OS X, click here to learn more. If you are using Android, click here.
