Using Proxy (exact alternative to VPN) in Android multiuser.
Im just gonna cut to the chase and not give long introductions. For those of you running the 'secondary' or 'non-owner' account in Android multiuser, you know it is impossible for the secondary user to use VPN. That would require you to actually open the primary/owner account and launch the VPN from there which is quite frustrating and unfeasible. So heres how you CAN do it. I researched for months on how to do it on my Xperia Tablet Z LTE and I found a way.
REMEMBER : IF YOU WANT IT TO WORK EXACTLY LIKE VPN, THAT IS PROXYING/BYPASSING BLOCKED SITES /PROXY CHANNELING FOR EVERY APP,YOU WILL NEED ROOT!
First: Root your phone. Optional but Recommended.
Second : You can check root by any app..There are some on Google Play.
Third : Download OrBot from Google Play (cant post links as Im new user
Fourth : Install It. If you dont have/wanna root you can use OrWeb (for browsing internet on your device through proxy/bypassing block) You can find it on Google Play, You can use a few selected apps that support OrBot natively (Google's your friend) AND ANY other app which supports channeling its data through a proxy tunnel.
Fifth : For proxy tunneling use 'localhost' or '127.0.0.1' in HOST field and use '8118' in PORT field for ANY APP WHICH DOES SUPPORT CHANNELING ITS NETWORK DATA THROUGH A PROXY CHANNEL.
Sixth : In case you DO have root.It easy as pie for you to channel ALL NETWORK DATA through OrBot. Simply use the 'Transparent Proxying' option in OrBot settings.
Seventh : Enjoy unblocked sites and complete privacy.
REMEBER : ORBOT IS A VERY EFFICIENT AND COMPLETELY EFFECTIVE WAY TO HIDE YOUR IDENTITY ONLINE. Read more at its website.
