    Hello,

    I am trying to capture the traffic of​ instagram android app, I tried it Andy emulator then real device both of them failed.

    I set proxy manually and I can capture data browser http,https there is no problem when capturing browser.

    But I cant sniff my twitter android app traffic. I tried drony and proxydroid but couldn't sniff any data.

    there is no certiface error even I can sniff all htttps data on browser. Instagram doesn't send any data to fiddler.

     How can I solve this problem ?

    If a client application does not properly respect the system proxy settings, there's not much Fiddler can do. I know that some users have successfully used ipTables or other tricks on jailbroken devices to force traffic through Fiddler.

    Having said that, I know that the Twitter app uses Certificate Pinning, so even if you do get its traffic through Fiddler, you must also use another tool on the jailbroken device to circumvent the certificate pinning mechanism.

    Hi, Koray--

    I've already shared what others have suggested worked for them (with real devices); I unfortunately haven't tried either of these scenarios myself and thus can't offer any further advice.
