Ok, I think I should explain more about this question and just Collin told
me the answered which I looking for that.

1st the reason I didn't add Tor to the list , because I knew that already
Tor is safe, BUT it isn't use widely in Iran, as Amin said, one of the
problem is Internet Speed.

Today I asked my friend who works at Manoto Tv which is a popular satellite
tv for Iranian based London, to they asked their audience on Facebook to
test Tor... here the result ( in persian you can use google translate )
https://www.facebook.com/manototv/photos/a.373466005978.201927.211358470978/10152223429605979/?type=1&stream_ref=10

MANY OF THEM COULD NOT OPEN EVEN THE URL NOT FROM PC NOT FROM MOBILE.

nowadays I suggestion people Lantern over my twitter @listentous and
Facebook page and probably this week from TV.

google play is blocked in Iran and people downloading these software from
dropbox, some file sharing and it's bad.

we should definitely understand that, people just want to access the free
internet, my mother doesn't care about the security or privacy BUT we can't
not telling them how dangerous this software or app. they should know that
the chance of leak their data on the internet or with Iranian cyber army
who ran lots of vpn servers inside country and selling vpn to people.

Thanks
Nariman
