How to Use IPRoyal Proxies With Shadowrocket
When you set up a proxy server on your iPhone or iPad, the device will use it for all outgoing and incoming traffic. This is necessary in certain cases, like when you need to access the internet from a heavily limited university or business network. You can also use a proxy to access geo-restricted websites or apps.
Keep Your iOS Device Safe with Shadowrocket and Proxies
While iOS supports proxies out-of-the-box, it only offers some basic options. Tools like Shadowrocket can help you make the most out of proxies and take advantage of advanced options to cover different usage scenarios and keep your device and private data as safe as possible.
Here's a step-by-step tutorial to help you integrate IProyal's residential proxies with Shadowrocket.
Download Shadowrocket and Run It
It's important to mention Shadowrocket is only available for iPhone and iPad. There's no version for macOS, Windows, or other operating systems. To start using Shadowrocket, download it from the App Store and install it on your device.
Add Your Proxies
Once you run Shadowrocket, you'll see the main window that allows you to toggle using proxies, configure global routing, test if everything works properly, and add new proxies. To set up IPRoyal proxies, tap on Add Server.
The following window allows you to set up advanced options for your proxies. For now, click on Type, select HTTP or SOCKS5 from the list, and go back to the previous screen.
Here you'll enter the details provided by IPRoyal. Under Host, use geo.iproyal.com. If you want to use proxies from a specific region, country, or city, make sure to specify it in IPRoyal's dashboard. As for the Port number, use 12323 for HTTP/HTTPS proxies or 12325 for SOCKS5 proxies. Input your credentials under User and Password. Once you've entered this information, press the back arrow to save your configuration and go back to the previous screen.
Once you've filled out all the details, you can turn the proxy on by turning on the toggle next to Not Connected. If you're using Shadowrocket for the first time, your device will prompt you to allow it to create VPN configurations. Tap Allow and enter your iOS passcode to confirm. After that, the toggle should be activated, and you're good to go.
Proxies add an extra security layer to your iOS devices and offer some additional perks like bypassing geo-restrictions and avoiding IP-based bans and other limitations.
Using Shadowrocket with IPRoyal residential proxies is quick and easy, allowing you to start enjoying all the benefits right away. If you need help or have any questions about our proxies, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us!
