Google Chrome is one of the most popular web browser, offering a fast and secure browsing experience. By default, Chrome uses the default proxy settings of your operating system to connect to the network and the internet. However, in some cases, you may want to connect to the internet through a proxy server.

You can access the Settings menu to change the proxy settings for Chrome. This menu opens your operating system's proxy configuration tool. You can also use a proxy plugin such as FoxyProxy to configure a proxied connection just for Chrome. This can be especially useful if you need to access specific websites or content that is restricted in your region.

Another option for changing Chrome proxy settings is using a private VPN provider's browser plugin, such as /SurfShark. By using a VPN browser plugin, you can easily change your proxy settings in Chrome and enjoy the benefits of a private and secure browsing experience.

Steps to change the proxy settings for Google Chrome and Chromium:

  1. Open Chrome's Setting page.

    Go to chrome://settings from the URL bar.

  2. Click on Advanced at the bottom of the page or from the sidebar.
  3. Scroll down till you come to the System section .

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

  4. Click on Open your computer's proxy settings to configure your system's proxy setting.
  5. Configure your proxy accordingly based on your operating system.

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