This guide tells how to set up datacenter proxies for Android devices without getting root access.
You can find the guide for proxy connection for Android devices with root access here.
Use the latest Android version available for your device whenever possible.
Depending on the OS, device item names may differ insignificantly from this guide. We used the device with Android 13.
Let’s review two options for proxy connection: by IP and by login/password.
Proxy connection by IP
Important: When configuring a proxy this way, the IP address is used by the device browser and all apps installed.
Change of authorization type “by IP” is possible for Russia, Ukraine, the USA, Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands, and Canada.
If proxies of the abovementioned countries do not support authorization type change, contact the technical support via chat on the site or in the Telegram bot.
Enable authorization “by IP” in the “My Proxies” section of the personal account. Then, set up a proxy on your device.
Step 1. Go to the settings section of your device and open “Wi-Fi”.
Step 2. Select the network the device is connected to.
Step 3. Scroll through the network parameters and find “Proxy” (this menu can be a part of the advanced settings or a separate item). Proxy is not used by default, so “None” is selected.
Step 4. Open this menu, select “Manual,” and follow to enter proxy data. You can find them in the personal account.
Step 5. Enter the hostname and port.
The hostname is the proxy IP address.
Port is the port address specified with the proxy IP address after the colon.
If you do not want to use the proxy for some sites, add them to the list of exceptions (“Unused sites”). This field is empty by default.
Step 6. When you finish entering data, reduce the menu. Wait for 15-30 seconds for changes to activate.
Go to www.whoer.net and make sure that the proxy works.
If the configuration is correct, the IP address on the site coincides with the one in the settings.
Proxy configuration using login and password
Important: When connecting the proxy this way, the IP address will be used only in the device browser, where you specified login and password. Applications installed on your device cannot use this IP address.
Enable authorization “by login and password” in the “My Proxies” section of your personal account. Then, set up the proxy on your device: follow steps 1-6 of this guide.
Then open the browser. Refresh a page, create a new tab, or enter any site address in the address bar.
After any of these actions, a dialogue box requesting a username (login) and password will appear.
You can find these data in the “My Proxies” section of your personal account and add them to the browser. Confirm data entry.
After completing these steps, check the functionality of the proxy on http://www.whoer.net/. If the configuration is correct, the IP address on the site coincides with the one in the settings.
