      Tor Browser is a browser that connects to Tor, therefore not a proper alternative.

      Just your way to go in case of needing to reach Tor on mobile. The others are, even if alternatives, surely not as good as this for mobile.

      crazypens30 Orbot, for what it is, is the most similar to the desktop Tor client. In fact, it has several advantages over the desktop version - it's easy to configure bridges and its VPN all from the same console (even though the VPN is in beta at this point). You can also easily configure which nodes to include or exclude. It does occasionally have security leaks, but these have improved in later versions.

      tor and cyberghost both protect your identity but in entirely different ways, but the main diff is the fact that tor has a built in browser specifically built for security and access to the deepweb

      crazypens30 While CyberGhost, as a VPN, does help protect your privacy and identity, it's quite different from Tor. Tor bounces your communications around the world through a series of relays and nodes.
