UI for tweaking/customizing Tor settings ?
Hi, there was that Windows only app (forgot its name) that allowed for customizing Tor settings, such as : demanding 4 hops instead of the regular 3 ; block bootstrapping and/or exit nodes (although the latter are non existent for cwtch) by geolocalization, blacklists etc... Maybe it was a UI for the Tor expert bundle, I simply don't recall.
Is this possible with the current version of cwtch and if not, is this on the roadmap ? It might increase security for certain classes of people.

No, Cwtch runs it's own password-locked instance of Tor which isn't accessible by any other application.

We do have most of the wiring already in place to allow these kinds of configurations (https://git.openprivacy.ca/cwtch.im/libcwtch-go/src/branch/trunk/lib.go#L159), but they are not currently exposed in the UI.
As a note: because Cwtch only uses onion services we already block non-Onion traffic in the tor config (and also no-exit nodes are selected because Cwtch will never attempt to resolve a non-onion address).
Deleting a branch is permanent. It CANNOT be undone. Continue?
