In the world of technology, it's always beneficial to remain secure. A proxy, which is a type of website that filters your IP address as viewed by another website or user, can help achieve this. Proxies also allow you to bypass security filters set in place by the owner of the connection. Sony allows you to enter the details of a proxy server when setting up an Internet connection on the PlayStation 3 to connect to the PlayStation Network, or PSN.

    Navigate to "Internet Connection Settings" and press "X." Press "X" on "Yes" when you receive the warning that you will disconnect from the Internet.

    Press "X" on "Custom."

    Keep pressing "Right" to bypass the configuration until you reach the "Proxy Settings" section.
