Android PROXy setting tool


In the security test for android apps, we can specify a local proxy server or local DNS server from the Wifi settings and use a proxy tool to check request and response. Since it is troublesome to configure this from the GUI, we created this tool so that it can be configured from the CUI.


  • adb
  • Android Device


$ pip install git+ssh://[email protected]/aktsk/aprox.git


Subcommands are assigned with alias, which is useful.

subcommand alias desc
proxy p Set local proxy server
dns d Set local DNS server(rooted device only)
clear c, cl Clear local proxy/DNS setting
manual m Access WiFi settings page on GUI
