How to set up a proxy in Freecap

FreeCap is a software tool designed to anonymize user connections and enhance security during internet browsing. Operating by redirecting network traffic through a proxy server, it supports various connection protocols including HTTP, HTTPS, SOCKS4, and SOCKS5. Compatible with all Windows versions, FreeCap intercepts SOCKS requests from applications and reroutes them through a chosen IP address. This functionality not only allows users to circumvent geographical limitations but also maintains their anonymity online.

Step-by-step proxy setup in FreeCap

Setting up a proxy server with FreeCap's user-friendly interface and open-source code is quick and easy, often taking just a few minutes. Here are the step-by-step instructions:

  1. Begin by installing and opening FreeCap. In the main menu, click on the “File” submenu and select “New application”.
