How to disable the proxy in Telegram?
When there is no need to use a proxy:
- on the smartphone go to the Settings, the Data and Storage section, the subkey Proxy, and drag the “Use proxy settings” slider to the inactive position;
- on the computer go to the Settings, look for the Advanced Settings section, click Connection type, and select Auto.
What is the difference between a proxy and a VPN and what connection is better to use in the Telegram?
The difference between connecting through a proxy and a vpn is the following. Both types of connections create a virtual “tunnel” between your device and the service to which you are connecting and hides your IP address. But the proxy works rather slowly and is less reliable in terms of data encryption. VPN wins in speed and reliability, but its use often needs to be paid for, and it’s more difficult to configure it.
In the case of the Telegram, it’s more convenient to use a proxy: the settings will only affect the messenger, and will not affect other applications. And to connect it much easier – in a couple of clicks with the Telegram Proxy Bot
. If you want to use a vpn connection, you will need to install a special application for the phone, or configure the network on the computer.
However, if the application is blocked, only the proxy server in the Telegram isn’t enough. To download a blocked application from the Play Market or the App Store, you will need to use a VPN server. Although with the advent of Telegram X any locks aren’t terrible – download the official alternative application, or any other alternative messenger based on Telegram.
