Proxy Setting in Chromebook
You can set a proxy in Chromebook’s network connection settings.
- To access this screen, click the panel at the bottom-right corner of your Chrome OS desktop and select “Settings” or click menu > Settings in a Chrome browser window.
- Then, click the name of the Wi-Fi network you’re connected to under “Internet connection”.
- Click the name of that Wi-Fi network in the menu that appears to change its settings.
- Each Wi-Fi network has its own proxy settings. If you want to use the same proxy while connected to multiple Wi-Fi networks, you’ll need to configure this multiple times—once for each network.
- Click the “Proxy” tab to access the proxy settings for the network you selected.
- By default, “Direct Internet connection” is selected here. This means your Chromebook won’t use a proxy while connected to this Wi-Fi network.
- In most cases, you’ll want to check “Use the same proxy for all protocols”. Enter the proxy’s address into the “HTTP proxy” box and its port number into the “Port” box.
- Click the “Close” button when finished.
- Browse to www.whatismyipaddress.com or www.iplocation.net to check that it shows the IP of your proxy as being your own
