Why Use Proxies in Cốc Cốc Browser?

Using proxies in Cốc Cốc Browser is especially beneficial for users in Vietnam, a country with a very active online community. Many Vietnamese people work remotely and engage in various online activities, making proxies essential for enhancing privacy, bypassing geo-restrictions, and improving security. Proxies allow users to access a wider range of content, optimize connection speeds, and maintain online anonymity, which is critical for remote workers and those engaged in sensitive activities.

Setting Up Proxies in the Cốc Cốc Browser

The Cốc Cốc browser is developed using the Chromium open source project. This means that its core settings, including proxy configurations, are similar to those in other browsers built on the same platform. Examples of such browsers include Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Opera, and Brave. These browsers share a common foundation, allowing for a consistent approach in managing settings like proxies.

Due to its reliance on the Chromium architecture, the Cốc Cốc browser lacks advanced proxy settings out of the box. It does not fully support proxy authentication via username and password, nor does it provide full support for the SOCKS protocol. This is a significant limitation as the SOCKS protocol is considered to be the most anonymous and versatile. As a result, users are forced to use proxies that support HTTP and HTTPS protocols, which may not provide the same level of anonymity as SOCKS.
