WhatsApp introduces proxy server connectivity

While the feature is for users all over the world, it has been launched primarily for the people of Iran, where the Islamic Republic banned WhatsApp and Instagram as part of measures to quell the anti-hijab protests that have been on since September last year.To get more news about ip change, you can visit pyproxy.com official website.
Now, users will be able to communicate through WhatsApp even if the service is banned or blocked where they live, or if they do not have access to internet. Yes, people will be now able to use the Meta-owned platform by connecting through proxy servers, set up by volunteers and organisations.

While the feature is for users all over the world, it has been launched primarily for the people of Iran, where the Islamic Republic banned WhatsApp and Instagram as part of its measures to quell the anti-hijab protests that have been going on since September last year after the death of Mahsa Amini at the hands of the country's ‘Morality Police.'

“Happy New Year! While many of us celebrated by texting our loved ones on WA, there are millions of people in Iran and elsewhere who continue to be denied the right to communicate freely and privately. So today we’re making it easier for anyone to connect to WA using a proxy,” tweeted Cathcart on Thursday.

“The world has never been more connected yet there are still internet disruptions that threaten people’s access. We hope that making it easier to use a proxy will make it that much harder to violate people’s right to communicate privately,” he added.

For this, a servers with any of these ports – 80, 443 or 5222 – will be needed, along with a domain (or subdomain) pointing to the server's IP address. Detailed doumentation and source code are available on GitHub.

What are the Benefits of Reverse Proxy?
1. Load Balancing
Load balancing refers to distributing incoming client requests across multiple backend servers. When a client sends a request to a reverse proxy, the reverse proxy can decide which backend server should handle the request based on various factors, such as server availability, server load, or geographic location.

Load balancing helps improve performance and scalability by allowing multiple servers to handle incoming traffic. This helps distribute the load evenly among the servers, preventing any server from overloading, slowing down, or failing.

2. Caching
Reverse proxies can cache frequently accessed content and serve it directly to clients, reducing the load on backend servers and improving response times.

3. SSL Termination
Reverse proxies can handle SSL encryption and decryption, allowing clients to connect securely to the backend server without the server having to take the overhead of SSL.

4. Threat Prevention
Reverse proxies can help protect backend servers from malicious traffic by filtering requests and blocking suspicious traffic. By blocking or rate-limiting suspicious requests, reverse proxies can prevent servers from being overwhelmed and keep the application running smoothly. It can also mask the server’s IP address, making it harder for attackers to launch a DDoS attack.
