When the macOS machine is attached to a network that needs the Proxy to access the Internet, Proxy settings are used. These may be discarded when the device is wired directly to the network, or the default gateway to reach the internet is the mounted network. Disabling the proxy or proxy settings would allow access to Wickr resources for your Wickr Pro (for example, registering your app). For individual users, these instructions are for locally managed admin access.

Proxy exists between you and the internet as an interpreter. Your request goes via the proxy server (which updates your IP address) while you are using a proxy, first and only then links to the website. If you want to describe a proxy, this is the important thing to know about Proxy

Proxies allow a link between another server to be tunneled to the user, which allows web requests on their behalf. Only the proxy address and not the actual IP address of the user can be used by the server receiving the connection, providing a valuable layer of protection and privacy.
