Target version:v14 - April Anons


Orbot is set to start on boot using ec2 bridge
Twitter localhost:8118
Duckduckgo has Tor enabled

I am using an unrooted Samsung Note 8 N5110 with Android 4.2.2 and Orbot 13.0.4a

Problem can be recreated as follows

Restart tablet
Check Twitter. Get tweets ok and Orbot icon shows traffic
Duckduckgo collects new news articles and Orbot icon shows traffic. Goto settings and Check Tor status, "Sorry you are not using Tor" and my home IP is shown
Orweb shows the same error

Restart Orbot. Twitter still ok and Duckduckgo collects news. Checking Tor status shows "Congratulations" and a Tor IP. Orweb always shows the Tor IP.

If you just use Orweb and Orbot (without DuckDuckGo) does this problem occur?

Just trying to determine if DDG is causing the problem somehow.
