How can I keep my Mycelium Wallet IP address private, and keep it from being associated with my bitcoin addresses?

AT -

Although we do not log IP addresses, there is no way for you to know whether that is true. Using the Socks Proxy feature and an app called Orbot you can make your wallet connect to our backend servers using the Tor network. This ensures you that you use our services anonymously. To set this up, download and install Orbot from the Google Play Store, and connect it to the network using the instructions provided in the app. Then, in Mycelium Wallet, open the Settings in the pop-up menu, scroll to the bottom to find «Socks Proxy,» and enter localhost:9050 as your proxy. In the settings, the «Socks Proxy» should now say «Enabled» in parenthesis.
