Mobile devices require you to have set up the proxy through the system network on your computer. You will then use your computer running the proxy server as a hotspot for your mobile devices to use the proxy. The mobile device you wish to use must be on the same network as the hosting device.

 

Step 1: Open settings.

Step 2: Navigate to the Wi-Fi page.

Step 3: Tap the information button on the right of the wifi connection (the “i” enclosed in a circle).

Step 4: Scroll down to the bottom of the page and tap Configure Proxy under HTTP PROXY.

Step 5: Select Automatic.

Step 6: On your computer, navigate to the Network settings via System Preferences, which can be accessed from clicking the Apple logo.

Step 7: In Network settings click the Advanced… button.

Step 8: Click on the TCP/IP tab and find the IPv4 Address.

Step 9: On your phone, input the IPv4 Address from your computer with the port number you are using into the URL field like such “http://192.168.1.17:8888/pacHttp” (the port number 8888 in the example may vary from the port number you use; refer to the Running TQ Proxy Server section if needed).

Step 10: Tap save at the top.

Step 11: To ensure that the proxy is working properly, run a speed test at https://www.speedtest.net/ to see if your location, ISP and IP address has changed.
