Hi All,
I hope i am within forum rules by asking this Q here in this thread.

I am using WiFi as a Guest with guest password qt my office. But dont want to open/show my ID / mac address or any
Detail to administrator.
Q1. Is there any APP which can keep me & my device detail invisible while i am surfing / downloading any file via browser or torrent?

Q2. Gmail etc sites are blocked in WiFi , is there any app which can helps to browse to these URL's.

Looking forward for positive response..

The poster above can probably help you with Q1

for Q2 you may want to try VPN services or proxy services.

Orbot is a reputable service. May also want to check out The Guardian Project (which Orbot is a part of)

Orbot has the option to use root to route ALL network traffic through Orbit. Definitely a good app.

I also use DroidWall for some protection on public networks, like really untrusted networks, what I'll do is disable connections from all apps except what I want to do (eg. Chrome browser).

Both apps are free from Play Store, you should check them out.

You can still use Orbot with Firefox proxy extension and/or Orweb without root, that's all I can say.

Hope this helps

I'm afraid you have to root for this.
