No matter how much you like your Windows Phone, you hate it when you reach college where you are provided with authenticated proxy Wi-Fi. All your friends having Android phones enjoy the Wi-Fi using Psiphon while you are left behind.

Here’s a way to use the Internet on your Windows Phone:

    CCProxy is easy-to-use and powerful proxy server.

  • Fill Proxy Address and Port.

  • Select HTTP as Proxy Protocol.

  • Connect your Windows Phone to your computer’s Wi-Fi hotspot.

  • On your Windows Phone, press and hold the name of your computer’s Wi-Fi hotspot and click on Edit.

  • Switch on Proxy.
