Setting up a proxy for iOS

Being engaged in writing articles about proxy servers, we for a very long time bypassed such a wonderful platform as IOS, we agree, undeservedly. But, better late than never, of course. It’s time to figure out how to set up proxies on popular gadgets such as iPhone, iPad, and others on IOS.

With the help of our article, you can set up a proxy for iOS on iPhone/iPad. One operating system means the same settings for each of the Apple smartphones and tablets. Once the settings are completed, you will be able to automatically connect to proxy servers when you go online.

To generally start doing something, we need the necessary basic things, namely:

  • iOS device
  • Working WiFi
  • Free (public) or paid (private) proxy server.

Of course, you can choose a free proxy that is almost obvious in this situation, but there are a huge number of pitfalls, let’s name the most important disadvantages of free proxies:

  • Missing data protection
  • Low anonymity
  • A proxy can have multiple users at once
  • Proxies can already be blocked on many sites and sometimes by providers
  • Realization of practically «open day» for malefactors.

Pleasant little. Of course, even among public proxies, there are quite average instances, however, this still does not justify the time that will be spent searching for them. In the case of private proxies, all the negative aspects of public servers will become advantages, because they are “mirrored”. Where there was low anonymity, it will become almost of better quality, etc. Rumors about inadequate price tags for good proxies are a myth of envious anonymizers. Almost any project that provides a proxy and has a good name in their circles will offer you quite down-to-earth prices that everyone can afford. Contact support and ask what exactly interests you.

In general, there are no complex schemes for setting up a proxy server, and this is all done quite quickly. However, you still need to be careful 🙂
