A proxy server is a powerful tool that sits between your device and the internet, allowing you to access websites and services anonymously. However, sometimes accessing certain content can be restricted based on your geographical location. This can be frustrating and limiting, but with the help of a proxy, you can bypass these geo-restrictions and access the content you want. In this guide, we'll show you step-by-step how to configure your iPhone or iPad network settings for proxies, so you can start browsing anonymously and accessing blocked content in no time.
