How to set up proxies in Google Chrome

Developed from Google’s Chromium project, the Chrome browser is one of the most adaptable browsers working on all major platforms including Mac OS, Windows, Android, Linux, and Google’s own Chrome OS.

Setting Up a Proxy in Your Google Chrome Browser

1. Open Google Chrome

2. Click on the three dots on the top right-hand corner of your browser window -> Settings -> Advanced -> Open your computer proxy settings

3. Go to LAN settings

4. Edit the URL in the address section (enter the IP or hostname of the proxy)

5. Add/change the port number of your proxy

                                 

You can disable the proxy server in the same way simply by unchecking the box next to “Use a proxy server for your LAN”.

Proxy authentication using login and password

If you are using a username and password proxy authorization, the window with the login and password will be immediately as soon as you try to access any website on the Internet.

In case you find this setup a little bit tricky you can only install an extension like FoxyProxy (check out a tutorial here) which will make proxy management much easier.
