The Proxifier program is required to connect the proxy to software that does not support this feature. With its help, you can use any software that works via the Internet on the basis of intermediary servers: browsers, messengers, software for account promotion, etc. This proxy software will help you to secure the work on the network by using intermediary servers that hide valid data about your pc.
Below you will find detailed step-by-step instructions for setting up proxies in Proxifer for all network connections or individual programs.

Proxifier settings in Proxifier for all network connections
To get started with this tool, download it from the Internet and run it on your computer. Follow this step-by-step instruction:
Open the "Proxy Servers ..." tab.
Go to the "Profile" section.
Press the “Add” button.
Enter the IP address and port of your proxy server in the free fields.
Select the protocol of your proxy server.
If your proxy supports authorization by login and password, then put the mark in the "Enable" checkbox and enter the login, password to access the proxy.
Press the “Check” button to test the work of the proxy server.
If you see a red message “Testing Failed” after doing the test, this means that the data is incorrect or the proxy is not working. You need to replace the server or adjust the IP address, port, username, and password.
If the proxy testing is successful, then you will see the highlighted green inscription.
When testing is completely successful, press the “OK” button.
Press the “Yes” button so that the connected proxy server performs by default for all programs.
Now all network connections will be transferred through the added proxy server.
Proxifier proxy settings for individual programs
Do you need to assign a separate proxy to a specific program? Then add the server according to the instructions above, and then follow this step-by-step instruction:
Click the “Profile” category.
Open the "Proxification Rules ..." tab.
In the opened window, press the “Add” button.
Type in the name of the new proxy. For example, we’ll configure a server that will work only for the Google Chrome browser.
Select the file to launch the application you need (for example, the Google Chrome browser) and press the "Open" button
Near the “Action”, select the proxy server you need from the drop-down list.
Press the “OK” button.
Press the “OK” button once again to save the changes and exit to the main menu.
The setup is completed. Run the program for which the proxy server was configured (in our case it was Google Chrome). To check the connection, go to the site that detects your IP address, for example, whoer.net. Also, information about which proxy is used for the application used can be obtained in the main Proxifier window.
By the same principle, you can connect a proxy server to any browser, messenger, software for promotion or another program.
