Now connect to WhatsApp via proxy servers if denied the right

New Delhi: Meta-owned WhatsApp launched proxy support for users around the world on Thursday. For example, the millions of people in Iran and elsewhere who continue to be denied the right to communicate freely and privately.

Choosing a proxy allows you to connect to WhatsApp through servers set up by volunteers and organizations around the world who help people communicate freely.

Will Cathcart, Head of WhatsApp, said:

According to the company, connecting through a proxy maintains the high level of privacy and security that WhatsApp offers.

“Your private messages are still protected by end-to-end encryption – they stay between you and the person you’re communicating with, not a proxy server, WhatsApp or Meta, but anyone in between.” We will make it invisible,” he said in a blog post.

This option is now available in the settings menu for all users running the latest version of WhatsApp.
