proxitok Setup

In this tutorial we're going to setup proxitok, a privacy front-end for tik tok (one of the most anti privacy services to ever exist.

Initial Setup

Git clone the repo and run the docker-compose.yml file:

[ Datura Network ] [ /dev/pts/8 ] [/srv]
→  git clone ; cd ProxiTok

Then configure the docker-compose.yml file (comment the init line because it's not supported)

[ Datura Network ] [ /dev/pts/8 ] [/srv/ProxiTok]
→ vim docker-compose.yml

[ Datura Network ] [ /dev/pts/8 ] [/srv/ProxiTok]
→ cat docker-compose.yml
version: '3'

Being disabled, it can also cause failures without low memory condition, see To fix this issue add 'vm.overcommit_memory = 1' to /etc/sysctl.conf and then reboot or run the command 'sysctl vm.overcommit_memory=1' for this to take effect.
