#32528 closed defect (duplicate)

allow more than 3 bridges in android

Description

because you put default bridges that are not working this has resulted in tor not working via android in a country where tor is otherwise inaccessible

even if you change default bridges from your side it will only work for some time until they get blocked again !!

this happened several times before in previous versions so this means the concerned country is now systematically targeting default bridges and bans them by creating blocking rules which is easy to implement country wise because default bridges dont change

the immediate solution is to allow manual input of more than 3 bridges in torbrowser just like orbot, otherwise torbrowser will not work in an entire country for android users !

I'm guessing this meant to be a Tor Browser ticket.

Matt/GeKo, what's the current story with Tor Browser Android and the ability to put in your own bridge addresses manually?

#30767 is the ticket to track for that. We have patch now which is up for review.

this does not propose the suggested change in this ticket which is increasing the limit of allowed bridges

I'm a little confused, because #30767 should prevent you from using pluggable transport bridges. If you are not using pluggable transports, then this may be one reason the connections are being blocked with such ease.

In any case, the ticket should be #30130. The goal of this is that you can add an arbitrary number of bridges. We encountered some UX problems while implementing the original bridge configuration interface.

you can add them manually via orbot setting "custom torrc"
add each

Bridge 0.0.0.0:9050

on seperate line
