Windows has a built-in Proxy that gives administrators granular control over a network. You can think of a proxy as a middle-man that sits between you and the internet. When the proxy is enabled, all the requests will first send to the proxy, which forwards them as needed on your behalf. Since all your requests will route via a proxy, the network administrator who manages the proxy can monitor and control all the network activity going through that proxy. On Windows 10, you can find the proxy configuration in the Settings app’s “Network & Internet → Proxy” page.
The proxy settings significantly protect your network and sometimes even speed up. Most office and educational environments require you to use specific proxy settings to ensure secure and safe communication. Though the proxy feature is helpful in many ways, you can disable it permanently if you are not using it or don’t want other users to change the proxy settings maliciously. So, if you’re going to disable Proxy, this risewindows article will help you with how to do that.
