Hey guys!

I have a somewhat paranoid way of thinking of security. I would like to be able to tunnel my browser requests using a ssh-tunnel, especially if I am on an open wifi (even though tls should be secure enough).

I have followed some tutorials online:

First result on googling "tunneling-and-port-forwarding-in-android" (apparently new members are denied posting outside links)

First result on googling "shantanugoel ssh-tunneling-android"

I have set up a port forward with connect bot and have tried changing the proxy settings in AP but when I try to browse, it doesn't load anything.
(First result on googling "My internet connection through my operator (3G) does not work. Can I set it up manually?")

I think some tutorial stated that your device needs to be rooted, but if I have understood correctly, the fairphone should already be rooted, right?
