WhatsApp Inc launches various features every month for the safety of the users. Recently, the instant messaging app launched a proxy feature for Android, iOS and desktop devices. What is the benefit of the new feature? It allows users to access WhatsApp without an internet connection.
With a proxy connection to WhatsApp, users can easily send and receive messages even if the internet connection in their area is disrupted or restricted due to government censorship.
Users can try proxy servers to continue using WhatsApp without an internet connection. These proxy servers are set up by volunteers and organisations who help people communicate safely. Users can save multiple proxy server addresses through trusted social media sources if they face internet problems in their area.
It is important to save multiple proxy server addresses. If users are unable to connect to one proxy network, they can easily connect to a different proxy server.

How to create WhatsApp proxy servers?
WhatsApp users can set up a proxy connection using a server with ports 80, 443 or 5222 available and a domain name that points to the server’s IP address. It is important to note that using a third-party proxy connection can share your IP address with the proxy provider.
