A proxy server is an intermediary between your computer and the Internet, often used to hide your real location and allow you to access websites that would otherwise be blocked.

If you’re having trouble connecting to the Internet, it’s possible that it has been set to use a proxy server.

Note: The steps below will not help you access online streaming services. If you’re unable to access a service because a VPN or proxy is detected, please contact the ExpressVPN Support Team for immediate assistance.
