Configuring Chrome to work with Burp – PortSwigger
October 6, 2021
Unlike other browsers, Chrome does not have its own proxy settings. Instead, you configure the settings for your computer’s built-in browser (Internet Explorer on Windows, Safari on MacOS) and Chrome will automatically use these settings as well.
If you want to use Chrome with Burp, please follow the process for configuring the proxy settings in the relevant browser for your operating system:
Windows (Internet Explorer)
If you’re not sure where your built-in proxy settings are, you can access them from within Chrome.
Open Chrome and go to the “Customize” menu. In the “Customize” menu, select “Settings”, then open the “Advanced” settings.
In the “Advanced Settings” section, click the “Open your computer’s proxy settings” or “Change proxy settings” button. This will open the relevant configuration options for your host computer.

Note About Speed
Proxies can be slower than your direct (non-proxy) internet connection. To optimize your experience, consider using FoxyProxy in patterns mode. It allows you to define which websites load through proxy servers and which do not. With FoxyProxy Plus (Firefox on Windows only), you can also define patterns based on local IP address — not the IP address of the websites you are visiting, but the IP address of your local work, home, or other computer.
Much more info can be found in the FoxyProxy Browser Extension Manual.
