You finally got a  residential proxy and have no clue how to use it? No fear; in this guide, we will explain how to use our proxy in combination with your browser. This setup allows you to connect to any country without affecting the other processes on your device. 

1. Setup

Download the IPBurger extension from the Chrome Web Store/Firefox web store, if you wish to use the proxy system-wide, we suggest a program such as Proxifier.

Below are official links to IPBurger:

Google Chrome

Mozilla Firefox

IPBurger is a proxy management app that allows you to use your proxy linked per browser; there are other extensions for this, too. This guide will generally work for any proxy extension that allows you to add an IP, port, username, and password.

2. Setting up IPBurger

After adding IPBurger to your browser, make sure you pin the extension to your browser or press on the "extensions" icon and press on the IPBurger logo. A small screen should pop up now.

2.1 Configuration

On this screen, press "Settings" and you'll be greeted with a configuration page. To fill this page out, you need to retrieve your proxy information first. Which can be seen on the "My Proxy" tab when you're logged in.

Your proxy information should look something like this:

ProxyApp proxy settings

Copy over the proxyusername, and password and fill out the configuration from step 2.1; it should look something like this:

The protocol is HTTP, the hostname would be & the port would be 8000.
Fill in your username and password, and press save.

After you press saves, the proxy should connect, and your browser should run the proxy.
