WhatsApp provides proxy support to provide an uninterrupted user interface 2023


Considering how WhatsApp is among the most popular instant messaging applications worldwide, it is safe to say that people are constantly using this application to share news about what is happening in their part of the world. Ideally, this was an excellent experience. However, some governments around the world would not prefer WhatsApp to have such power, and thus, they often end up blocking the service completely, preventing users from sharing news.


The best thing is that messages will remain end-to-end encrypted but they also issued a warning that your IP address will be shared with proxy providers, which makes sense.

If you want to connect to WhatsApp through a proxy, you can do that, but the platform has suggested that you should look for a reliable and reputable source. Once you find something tangible and something you can trust, you can head to Settings > Storage & Data > Proxy > Use Proxy > Set Proxy. From here, go ahead and enter the address of a proxy you trust and save it.

Another important thing you need to know is that the new service will not work if the internet is shut down in the area.

While this move is certainly in the right direction, the platform can expect a backlash from the authorities. Tell us your feelings about WhatsApp's decision to add the new proxy feature.
