A proxy authentication is a process that many BlackBerry users utilise to access secured websites such as an internal site within a company website. Accessing this type of website requires a secured and approved connection. If the connection passes the security test, the internal company website allows the user to access the information on the website. However, enabling the proxy authentication may also block access to some less secure websites the user may want to visit. Disabling the proxy allows the user to access these less secure websites.
