Configuring a proxy in the Waterfox anti-detect browser

Comments: 0

Waterfox is an anti-detect browser designed for secure web surfing, based on the open-source Mozilla platform. It supports operating systems such as Windows, Linux, and MacOS and comes with built-in tracking protection by default. Waterfox allows for proxy server configuration to ensure the highest level of user data protection and anonymous web browsing.

Step-by-step proxy configuration in Waterfox browser

The process of configuring a proxy in Waterfox is very similar to that in Mozilla Firefox.

  1. Download, install, and launch the Waterfox browser. In the top right corner, click on the browser menu icon and select "Settings" from the dropdown menu.


  2. In the "General" section, scroll down to find "Network Settings" at the bottom, and click on the "Settings" button.


  3. In the network settings window, select "Manual proxy configuration", then enter the proxy server details: IP address and port in the respective fields. Check the box for "Also use this proxy server for HTTPS" and click "OK" to complete the setup.


  4. After entering and saving the proxy details, the system will prompt for a username and password if private proxies with authentication were used. In the popup window, enter the credentials in the respective fields and click "OK".


    If public proxies are used, or if the user's device IP address authentication is in place, this prompt will not appear, as the connection is established automatically.

The proxy configuration in the Waterfox anti-detect browser is now complete, with traffic being routed through the set IP address. Web surfing is confidential and secure.
