How to change proxy on an Android Device
At present, we see many of the websites are blocked due different reasons and when we encounter such issues, it becomes little tough to go through it. We assume that an internet connection is sufficient to get access to every data available on the Internet, but it’s not true. There are many websites which are region specific, or are restricted in your country. You must have heard regarding YouTube, as it was banned in many Asian countries due to content issues. Those countries do not approve the kind of content availability on YouTube, so it was banned by the respective country’s government.
Further, there are many websites which are only accessible by US citizens, KIKE, HULU, Netflix or for US citizens, there is BBC iPlayer. This restriction in turn has increased piracy rate in countries where that content is not legally available. Over the PCs, somewhat that comes handy to tackle such issues, through the proxy software or putting custom proxy in the browser’s settings. On an Android device, if we know the right way or right application, changing proxy is even easier than we do on our PCs.
It’s not a rocket science if you have an Android device! With just one app and one click, we can easily change current proxy to something foreign and can open each and every website without any restrictions.
