Use Rotating Proxy on Windows and MacOS

A tutorial on how to use our rotating proxy in Windows/macOS browsers, such as Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer (IE), Edge, and Opera.

Here we will show how to use our Rotating Proxy on Windows browsers (Chrome, IE, Edge, and Firefox).

You can use both our Rotating Premium Proxy services  (stable premium proxies) and Rotating Open Proxy (unstable public proxies) on Windows.

1. Proxy Authentication

Most Windows browsers don’t support username/password authentication of the proxy, you can use IP authentication. In the client area, whitelist the IP that is allowed to use the proxy.
