Content of the article:

Postern is an application designed to facilitate proxy connections on Android devices, enabling users to change their IP address. The app allows for the routing of all device traffic through a proxy, and users can also set rules to change the IP address only when using specific applications or visiting certain websites. In the following instructions, we will explore how to set up a proxy in the Postern application.

Step-by-step proxy setup in Postern

The app is not available on the Play Store, so you need to download the .apk file from third-party sources to install it. After installation, follow the step-by-step instructions:

  1. In the main menu of the application, navigate to the “Proxy” section.


  2. To add a new proxy, click on the “Add Proxy” button.


  3. The next step is to set the name of the proxy profile in the top field and select one of the available protocols in the “Server Type” field. This setting is shown using SOCKS5 as an example.


  4. Then you need to add the proxy IP address and port. When using private proxies, you also need to enter your username and password in the appropriate fields.


  5. After entering the required data, you need to click on the “Save” button, and the proxy configuration will be saved.


  6. Now you need to return to the main page of the application and go to the section called “Rules” to create a rule for connecting a proxy.


  7. In the new window, click on the “Add Rule” button.


  8. Now in the “Match Method” field, you need to select the desired rule by which the proxy will work. In our example, a proxy will be installed on the entire device, which corresponds to the “Match All” rule.


  9. In the “Rule” field, you must select the “Proxy/Tunnel” item so that the application routes traffic through the configured proxy. Below in the “Proxy/Proxy Group” field, you need to select the proxy that was added before from the drop-down menu.


  10. Click on the “Save” button. To check your IP address and make sure it has been changed successfully, you can use any convenient online checker. The result of the check must match the IP address of the proxy server.


The Postern application is a convenient way to set up private proxies on the Android system to bypass blocking and perform various work tasks. It should be remembered that working with free proxies is not always effective, since they can cause an unstable connection. The instructions provided an example of setting up a private proxy, which, in turn, provides an anonymous connection and high connection speed.
