How to set up proxy on Chrome for Windows

In this tutorial we will show you how to set up Proxy on Chrome for Windows but first let’s see what are our requirements.


In order to set up the Proxy on Chrome for Windows you will need:

  1. A CactusVPN account. If you don’t have one you can try our services for free.
  2. Your Proxy username, password and Proxy server address. You can find them in your account on our website, by going to Settings.


To skip the manual setup we recommend to use the CactusVPN Extension for Chrome.

Go step-by-step through following instructions:

  1. In the Chrome browser, press the Customize and control Google Chrome button (1), and choose Settings (2).

  5. In the Local Area Network (LAN) Settings window, check the Use a proxy server for your LAN (7) checkbox.

    In the same window enter the IP address (8) of the proxy server and the port number (9) you want to use.

    You can find IP addresses of all our servers in your account on our website, by going to Settings.

    Click on Advanced (10).

  7. The first time you’ll try to visit a website, a window will appear asking for an username and a password (13).

    Type your VPN username and password.

    You can find your VPN username and password in your account on our website, by going to Settings -> VPN Username & Password. Make sure you use your VPN username and password and NOT the website account credentials (What is the difference?).

    Click on Sign in (14).

That’s all. Now you can browse safely and anonymous.
