How to configure proxy on iPhone/iPad (iOS) | iPhone and iPad (iOS) proxy tutorial

Introduction

Eventually Internet service providers (ISP) block some websites and dont care about the privacy for their users. Generally ISP blocks an access for some range of IP-addresses, so if your device (PC, tablet, smartphone) gets an IP-address from this range, you cant visit some websites or use some services as torrent or ftp. The most simple and effective way to bypass this restrictions is to use our proxy service.

Devices with iOS (iPhone/iPad) can get access to proxy via Wi-Fi.
