Android: WIFI Proxy without root

On some Android 2.3.X phones(e.g. my Acer Liquid Metal S120, WIFI proxy settings are missed in WIFI settings. The work around are below:
  • Use Opera Browser
    • Install from Google Play, or if you dont have internet connection you can download the apk from on another computer, transfer to your phone and installed it
    • Open the Opera browser app, in the URL field, type opera:config, at this time the Preferences Editor should have opened in your screen.
    • Scroll down to proxy menu, in the HTTP Server and HTTPS Server, enter your proxy setting with the following format <Proxy IP>:<Port>. E.g.
  • Install "HTTP proxy settings" app in Google play. (It may not work on some phones.)
