PUBG Mobile is the mobile game version of the famous PC game PlayerUnkown’s Battleground. It’s developed by Lightspeed and Quantum and was published by Tencent Games in March 2018. PUBG Mobile is free to play and is available on nearly all Android and iOS devices.
Similar to its PC counterpart, the importance of a strong internet connection cannot be understated. It would provide you with low latency and overall, a better gaming experience. If you do have high ping, it would be nearly impossible to play any game especially PUBG or PUBG Mobile.
To ensure that you have low latency and a smooth gaming experience, you need to use a PUBG Mobile proxy. Through a PUBG proxy, you can connect to a faster and more reliable internet connection for your mobile device ensuring that you won’t experience lag. A PUBG proxy can also help you protect your privacy when playing the game and give you total anonymity.
The best PUBG proxy to use would be either a datacenter proxy or a residential proxy. If you want a faster internet connection and low latency when playing, then datacenter proxies are what’s best for you. You can use residential proxies if you want to sacrifice a bit of speed to protect your privacy and gain total anonymity.
Let’s configure your PUBG Mobile proxy settings.

If you want your device to utilize specific proxy server settings, choose the first option “Manual”. Choose the second option, “Auto”, if you want your device to automatically detect your proxy settings.

If you chose Manual configuration, then:
- Enter your proxy hostname Note: You can enter hostnames or ip addresses here

Configuring Your iPhone’s Proxy Settings
After being redirected to your iPhone’s proxy settings, you are then given two options to choose from: Manual proxy setup or automatic proxy setup. If you want automatic proxy detection for your proxy settings, choose the “Auto” option. Choose the “Manual” option if you want to utilize a specific ip address and port number.
If you choose the “Auto” option, your iPhone will then immediately check if a proxy is needed for your current network before automatically configuring your proxy settings. Your iPhone will not use a proxy server if it deems it to be unnecessary, but if you really want to use one then simply obtain an automatic proxy configuration script, or a .PAC file for short, and enter it in the url section as seen below.

If you chose the “Manual” option then:
- Enter the server address or a IP address
- Enter the port number
- If your proxy provider says that authentication is required for the proxy server, then turn this on
- Enter your authentication details
