Google Chrome by default uses your operating system's default setting to connect to the network and the Internet. You can route your Internet traffic via a proxy by configuring your system's proxy setting via Chrome's setting page.

Change proxy setting in Google Chrome:

  1. Open Chrome's Setting page by going to chrome://settings from the URL bar
  2. Go to the bottom of the page and click Advanced
  3. Scroll down till you come to the System section and click on Open proxy settings to configure your system's proxy setting.

    Proxy management browser plugins such as FoxyProxy will be listed in the section if installed

  4. Configure your proxy accordingly based on your operating system.
    1. macOS.
    2. Ubuntu.

      The caveat to this approach is that it will configure the system's proxy setting whereby all the other traffic for your systems will through the configured proxy. To route only your browser's traffic through a proxy, it is advisable to use proxy extensions such as FoxyProxy
