WhatsApp Proxy Support Will Help Circumvent Censorship

WhatsApp has launched a new feature that will allow people in countries where the government has blocked service to the app to connect via proxy servers. The feature is available on the most recent versions of the app. It also allows users to set up proxy servers to help others connect to WhatsApp.


Like using a VPN to circumvent restrictions, this too is a cat-and-mouse game. Expect countries to discover and block these proxy servers over time. Be kind: these proxies are being installed by volunteers. Note that these will slow communications, particularly file transfers, but least these will work.
