WhatsApp Rolls Out New Proxy Support So Users With Network Disruptions Stay Connected

Meta’s leading messaging app is on the lookout to help its users stay connected during governmental censorship. And what better way of doing just that than rolling out a new feature in the form of proxy support?

This is designed to rid poor networking and disruptive servers by including proxy support for all the users involved. In the end, it provides users with the chance to use the right proxy server that helps them remain connected at all times. And that’s true even in circumstances when you’re facing a poor network connection or internet lockdown.

The app says it would even work during a mandated disruption by the government, which happens to be one of the leading causes of outage in communication.

The app’s chief recently highlighted how selecting the right proxy allows you to connect to the app (on Android, iOS or web) via servers that are set up, thanks to the likes of volunteers around the world. They are dedicated to assisting individuals to communicate in a free manner.

Moreover, connections through such proxies mean maintaining the highest level of privacy as well as security that this platform provides. Moreover, you can benefit from the likes of having end-to-end encryption, which stays between you and the individual that you’re connecting with and won’t be visible to others that wish to come in between your privacy and proxy servers.

In case you did not already know, WhatsApp is the world’s leading messaging app and usually is deemed to be critical for communication and providing the right channel for linking with others. Today, as more and more people get connected and information starts to flow in from all directions, such features are turning out to be important. After all, you don’t want to be cut away from crucial updates.

We can only imagine how government agencies feel about such news. They aren’t going to be happy about it as the platform is adding more access to the likes of blocks and restrictions. But from the company’s point of view, this is definitely one crucial service and one that was a long time coming, considering the amount of feedback they’ve been getting on the matter.

WhatsApp recently launched a public statement where they claim that a goal for 2023 is to avoid as many internet shutdowns as possible but in cases that such disruptions do occur, it’s important to be well equipped, and what better way of doing just that than this?
