How to Configure a Proxy Server on a Chromebook?

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.

If your current Wi-Fi network is a “shared network”—that is, if you share the Wi-Fi network connection details with anyone who signs into your Chromebook—you’ll need to enable the “Allow proxies for shared networks” option under Internet Connection at the top of your settings screen. If you don’t, the Proxy configuration screen will tell you to enable this option before you can configure a proxy.

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. Select “Manual proxy configuration”.

You can choose to either use the same proxy for HTTP, Secure HTTP (HTTPS), FTP, and SOCKS protocols, or use a separate proxy for each.
