Drive [Q] How to configure student wifi proxy for apps

Hey,
I wanted to know if there is a method for changing the proxy setting s for various apps in my phone to the same as the wifi proxy.
Thanks.

No.I want to use the proxy for my apps.For eg playstore can be accessed from browser but not app because the proxy is not configured.

What are you talking about
What proxy are you using? It's an app your installed? Proxies are for browser usually i don't understand why you're talking about app and proxy that doesn't work together.
Can you tell me more about what you try to do?

So you're trying to say that only the browser works and all other apps have no internet access?? Facebook and stuff?

Edit: Finally understood the situation, if you're using the schools wifi and they blocked apps to work (my college wifi does that too), the only way to get it to work is if they unblock it themselves. That's why you should get a data plan lol

Haha! Here we are! You're trying to bypass the security proxy of the wifi
If it's your wifi desactivate it, if you're in public place or school, you're *****ed

Is VPN an option for you? Sounds like deep packet inspection to me. If you'd use VPN your whole traffic will be encrypted. So no dpi to look in your traffic
