Easy proxy management for daily use is highly achievable with mobile apps like Postern. Especially when using it with Oxylabs Residential Proxies. In this blog post, we will go over how to integrate our Residential Proxies with Postern in a few easy steps.

What is Postern?

Postern is a very popular proxy and VPN management application on Android.

Oxylabs proxy integration with Postern 

First, you will need to download Postern. To do that, simply go to Google Play Store and click install

Then, open the app and click Add Proxy: 

Then, in the following window, enter the required proxy information:

  • Server Name – Oxylabs
  • Server Address – pr.oxylabs.io
  • Server Port – 7777 
  • Click Server Type and choose HTTPS/HTTP CONNECT
  • Enter your login credentials under Username and Password. For this to work, you must type customer- before you type in your username, e.g., customer-username.
  • Click Save

You can also use country-specific entries. For example, if you put us-pr.oxylabs.io under Server Address and 10001 under Server Port, you will receive the US exit node with a sticky session.

For more country-specific entry nodes, check out our documentation

After typing in all of the Oxylabs proxy settings, open the app menu and go to Rules:

Click Add Rule:

Under Match Method, select Match All. Choose Proxy/Tunnel as the Rule. Proxy/Proxy Group should automatically fill in with Oxylabs – pr.oxylabs.io:7777. After that, click Save.

Now to use the proxy, you will need to turn on the VPN. Open the app menu and click on VPN Off to activate the connection. And that is it.

Conclusions

Together with Oxylabs Residential Proxies, Postern can provide your Android device an added level of security and privacy.
