How To Set Up A Proxy For Telegram On Your Android Device

In today’s article, we are going to look at how one can set up a proxy for Telegram on any Android device.

Since the popularity of Telegram has increased its usage, more and more features and additions have been added to it.

Before you can set up a proxy for Telegram, there are some requirements that you will have to meet before. Let us take a look at those requirements below.


Before setting a proxy for Telegram, here are the needed requirements to make that happen. 

  1. A VPN account– the first thing you will need is a Cactus VPN account. In case you do not have a VPN account, you will need to sign up for one right away. If you already have one, then you are good to go provided you have the other requirements on hand.
  2. Proxy username and password– You should have your proxy username and password on hand. You will need to have your proxy server address as well. All these can be found in your VNPN account on the site of the VPN provider where you signed up. Just go to settings and you will find them there.

After you have made sure that you have all the requirements needed, it is now time to set up the proxy for your Telegram on the Android device. To get that done, please follow the steps laid out below is quite easy but following closely is always the best thing to do.
