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

Requirements

In order to set up the Proxy on 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.

Go step-by-step through following instructions:

  1. Open the OPERA browser, click on “Opera” (1) and on “Preferences” (2).
