Setting up a proxy in the Proxifier app on Android

Comments: 0

The Proxifier app for Android allows users to route all network traffic through proxy servers and supports various proxy protocols such as SOCKS, HTTP, and SSH. It enables saving settings for multiple proxies, facilitating easy switching between them, and allows for tracking and analyzing network activity.

How to configure a proxy in Proxifier on Android

Configuring a proxy server in the app as a gateway enables traffic to be directed through faster routes via apps that lack built-in proxy functionality.

  1. Download and open the Proxifier app on your Android device.


  2. In the settings menu, select "Proxy Server".


  3. In the proxy settings window, choose the required proxy protocol from the ones listed - for example, select SOCKS.


  4. Enter the proxy details: IP address, port. Fill in the username and password if using private proxies with authentication.


  5. Press "Save" to confirm and save the changes.


  6. To select an application that will work with the proxy, you need to add rules. Go to the "Rules" section in the main menu.


  7. In the "Applications" field, select the required resource and move the slider. For example, choose the Chrome browser.


  8. Navigate to the "Settings" section in the main menu, enable the “Resolve hostnames on proxy” slider, and press "Save".


After completing the setup, Proxifier will route the traffic of selected applications through the proxy server. Now, programs that do not have their own proxy setup functionality will operate with the chosen IP. The app's operation on Android will ensure security and privacy in mobile applications, offering the ability to manage settings for multiple proxies.
