How to set up a proxy and unblock Telegram

Sometimes hackers or ISPs can monitor your activities on Telegram. A proxy server will help you avoid this: it will provide anonymity on the network and protect your data from prying eyes.


A proxy will hide your IP address and location as well as help you bypass regional or local restrictions. Telegram will become available from anywhere in the world and from any device!

What proxy to use for Telegram

The application on IOS and Android supports SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 proxies. On a PC, you can configure SOCKS and HTTP protocol servers.


Therefore, choose the type of proxy server based on your device. But keep in mind that SOCKS will be more reliable and faster than HTTP anyway.
