How to set up and run a proxy in SessionBox

One of the easiest and most efficient ways to set up a proxy in a browser is through a browser extension. Using a proxy server to route traffic not only changes your IP address but also enhances your online anonymity. It's particularly useful for managing multiple accounts, which can be beneficial for traffic arbitrage, social media management (SMM) tasks, and other purposes. For Chrome users, the SessionBox extension is an excellent choice.

SessionBox allows you to create multiple sessions for a single website directly within Chrome, eliminating the need for a separate anti-detect browser. Its proxy switch feature enables you to configure and manage proxies for each session independently. This makes SessionBox a convenient tool for marketing and other fields where multi-accounting is common. The following instructions will guide you on how to set up a proxy in the SessionBox multi-login proxy extension.

Step-by-step guide on how to set up a proxy in SessionBox

  1. Once you've installed the proxy switcher extension, it will appear in the browser's top panel. Click on the extension icon, locate the three horizontal bars, and expand the menu.

  2. Select “Settings”.

  3. In the window that appears, switch to the “Proxy” section. Click on the “Add new” button.

  4. Enter a name for the proxy and select the protocol type from the drop-down list.

  5. Enter the IP-address and port. If you're using private proxies, you'll also need to input your username and password. Double-check the information and click “Save”.

  6. To start a session with the configured proxy, begin a session and select “Other” in its settings. Choose the previously configured proxy from the drop-down list.

By following these steps, your session will operate from a new IP address, allowing you to log into multiple accounts without leaving the browser. This approach effectively eliminates the risk of IP blocking and enables you to bypass geographic restrictions.
