How to Setup Proxy Server Usage for iPhone and iPad

We are aware that a 4G proxy will help us get the most out of the different websites and social media apps we use. However, it is no doubt that Apple users are having difficulties in setting up various applications and other stuff on their devices — this includes proxies. You will not have to install third-party applications to run your 4G proxy on iOS; you just need a WiFi connection and follow these steps.

Step 1: Settings > WiFi

On your phone, head to Settings, then turn on the wireless connection. Connect your device to your preferred WiFi network.

Step 2: Wireless Network

Select the network that you’re connected to; you will see a list of different settings and configurations of the network connection.

Step 3: Setting-up Proxy

Scroll down to the bottom, and you will see an option for HTTP Proxy. This is usually turned off by default — you could either set it to Auto for the device to automatically detect your proxy or to Manual for manual configuration. For this tutorial, please select Manual.

Step 4: Configuring Proxy

After selecting Manual setup, you would see Authentication below, which is also set to off by default, so you must turn it on. Afterward, you would need to take note of the following information: (1) Server, which consists of several characters or digits; (2) Port, which consists of four digits; (3) Your proxy’s username and password. Type the credentials needed under the Authentication button. For the best and easiest experience, The Social Proxy can provide an excellent and trusted 4G proxy service.

Step 5: Save and Enjoy

Now that you’ve finished doing all the needed steps, do not forget to click on Save at the upper-right corner of your screen to save the changes you made to the WiFi settings.  You can now try if the configuration works by going to any website — if you can access them without any hassles, then you’re good to go. You can also check your IP and geo-location and see if it has changed.

Bottomline

That’s pretty much all you need to enjoy the best of your wireless connection using an iPad or iPhone. If there are any problems with accessing websites, you may check if the credentials you’ve put in are correct.
