There are lot of tasks running on a typical smartphone, can be your whatsapp, facebook, twitter or any other web based app, so as soon as the network is activated, each of them tries to connect to internet, which presumably would be presented by firewall’s login prompt (which you don’t have access to, since all of them are in a background task), now, since there are so many of them accessing net at once, the overall internet speed definitely becomes slow, which will finally lead you to need a proxy. You will need a proxy for many other purposes other than this, such as to filter encrypted data, translate, access services anonymously and so on.
A proxy is a server that stands between an external network (such as Internet) and an organization’s internal (private) networks and serves as a firewall. It prevents external users from directly accessing the internal information resources, or even knowing their location. All external requests for information are intercepted by the proxy server and checked for their validity, and only authorized requests are passed on to the internal server. This security, however, comes at the cost of inconvenience to genuine users and slower performance. While this arrangement results in higher access speed, the information may be outdated if updating of the original document or file (stored on a different server) does not automatically updates the information in the proxy server. Proxy settings allow an intermediary to come between your web browser and another computer, called a server. Basically, the use of a proxy and VPN (Virtual private Network) are same, with a little difference.
Useful for you:
The Android Lollipop has the in-built feature to use proxy while connecting to a WiFi network. To configure the proxy settings, while connecting to WiFi in your Android device running on Lollipop or higher versions, follow these simple steps:
You should note that the proxy configured for a WiFi network will not work on other connections, which means you will have to configure the proxy separately for each networks, which you want to do so.
