How to set up a proxy on Safari for MacOS

Comments: 0

Configuring proxies in Safari and MAC OS is not as complicated as it seems at first sight. Safari is the default MAC OS browser.

To start Safari, click on the compass icon in the Doc. A browser window will open. Work in Safari is not fundamentally different from work in other browsers. Let's look at the basic proxy settings in the Safari web browser.

  • In order to perform this operation on a device running on the MAC operating system, you need to open the Safari browser and perform a few simple steps.

  • In the new window, fill in the fields for entering the address or port of the selected server. Click on the “OK” button to complete the setup. If the selected server requires the use of a username and password, then when you enter any website you will see a special window for entering this data.

If your proxy server is tied to the main IP address, you won’t need to enter anything else, and you can freely use the Internet access.

This completes the setup for Safari and MAC OS. We recommend to take care of the security of personal data on the network and buy personal proxies.

To disable the proxy server on a device on MAC OS, you should also perform certain actions in the open Safari browser. Such manipulations are recommended to be carried out only as necessary.

  2. In the opened “Wi-Fi” window select at the upper menu “Proxies” category and take off all the checked boxes. Press the “OK” button after:

From this moment, the proxy will be inactive. But still, after eliminating the reasons that caused the proxy server to be disconnected, you should reconnect it. This step will protect your personal data and avoid the many problems that await each user upon being on the Internet
