SwitchyOmega - is an extension for your browser. Manage and switch between multiple proxies quickly. The extension has a pretty easy configuration, but many people are facing problems with it. Let’s understand how to set up SwitchyOmega step-by-step.
Step-by-step proxy settings in SwitchyOmega
After downloading the extension SwitchyOmega setting tab will automatically open. Press the “Next” button in the welcome window.
Press multiple times “Next” in the guide windows, there is no sense to read them. After this, you come into the “PROFILES” tab with automatically created “proxy” profile.
So, from the drop-down box under the “Protocol” headline choose the HTTPS - the recommended protocol to work with SwitchyOmega by the Proxy-Seller.
SwitchyOmega requires proxy servers with IP authentication or with Login and Password. So if you haven’t purchased any - it’s time to get some really good proxies from Proxy-Seller. The “Server” field requires the IP address of your proxy server, and the port field is common for any type of proxies. We will use one of our proxy servers as an example.
After filling these fields let’s understand the one really important issue. If you have purchased a proxy server with IP authentication, there is no need to do this paragraph, but if you have the proxy server with login and password authentication - you have to press the “Authentication” button, with a lock icon.
The proxy Authentication window appears. Enter the login and password from the purchased proxy server and press the “Save changes” button.
If the authentication is correct - the lock will be a green color-highlighted. Press the “Apply changes” in the “ACTIONS” tab.
After this, open a new tab of your browser. Left-click of a mouse on the SwitchyOmega icon and choose the configured profile “proxy”.
After this, be sure your extension is working correctly. Let’s enter the whoer.net website to check the IP changes.
The configuration is finished! If you faced any problems - check the settings tutorial once again and pay attention to the authentication of the proxy server!
