In early 2023, WhatsApp launched a feature to connect the messenger to the internet through a proxy server. Now, if WhatsApp is blocked in your country, communication with the messenger can be re-established using a secure connection via proxy.

According to the UN, internet disconnection is "dramatic" and has a huge impact on people's lives. They said in their report.

"Internet disconnection has emerged as the digital world has become increasingly important, indeed essential, for the realization of many human rights. Internet shutdowns cause irreparable damage, both materially and in terms of human rights," said UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet.

It is also noted that the Internet shutdown threatens the lack of medical assistance at a critical moment. In some parts of the world, people need the Internet to call for medical help in critical situations.

In case of connection through a proxy server, messages and calls between interlocutors will remain secure. Only those who exchange messages will be able to view the content of the messages.

At the moment, officially, WhatsApp supports connection via proxy only with ports 80, 443 or 5222.

WhatsApp also recommends that those who have the ability to do so, look for instructions and join in creating proxy servers. And also recommends sharing the addresses of proxy servers you know with people in countries that may have WhatsApp blocked.
