MTProto proxy was first introduced by Durov the founder of Telegram. He made this protocol in order to create secure and fast communication. Based on MTProto proxy all text and voice messages, stickers, emojis, videos and photos are end-to-end encrypted. (This means that only the sender and the receiver of the message can access the content.)
As written on the official website of Telegram:”The protocol is designed for access to a server API from applications running on mobile devices. It must be emphasized that a web browser is not such an application.”. Mtproto proxy was already available on iOS and windows. And now the new update of Telegram on Android supports it too.
3 components of MTProto proxy
They subdivide this protocol into three virtually independent components:
- High-level component (API query language): This protocol converts API queries and responses to binary messages.
- Cryptographic (authorization) layer: This method encrypts messages before being transmitted through the transport protocol.
- Transport component: defines the method for the client and the server to transmit messages over some other existing network protocol (such as HTTP, HTTPS, TCP, UDP).
Why MTProto proxy?
After Russia’s and Iran’s government banned Telegram proxies became very popular. By MTProto proxy you can unblock Telegram in addition to having a safe and fast conversation.
How to use this proxy
First you need to download the latest version of Telegram on your device. Then make sure that you are not using any kind of VPNs. So now you need to have access to the proxies that channels like @MTPProtoProxies offer.
- Go to the Setting menu
- Tap on Connection type
- Enter your proxy’s IP address, port etc.
- Now your Telegram account is available and your MTProto proxy is working. You don’t need to use VPN anymore.
- Enter a channel like @MTPProtoProxies on Telegram
- Click on an MTProto proxy
- Finally tap Connect (It will connect automatically.)
How MTProto proxy works
In the past the encrypted message you sent would be re-encrypted in the server and sent again to the receiver. However, in this new protocol you send the encrypted message directly to the receiver without re-encryption.
