Built-in proxy manager (HTTP, SOCKS, SSH)

It is important to change your IP address with a proxy if you want to reach full privacy on the web. Read this article about the importance of proxies.

In Kameleo v1.3 the fully-functioning built-in proxy management was introduced. With this function, you can set up Kameleo easily to connect the web thru proxies. IP, port, username, and password can be set inside Kameleo app as you can connect to different type of proxies:

  • Socks4A
  • Socks5
  • Http / Https
  • Ssh

Direct connection / No proxy

By default, Kameleo will connect without any Proxy. Your IP won’t be handled by Kameleo. Basically, it will be your PC’s IP.

If you are using a VPN you can change your IP. In this case, inside Kameleo you can select a Direct connection.

If you are using Proxifier you will also have to select Direct here.

Socks4A

If you select Socks4A, you can connect to any Socks4A proxy.

In this case, you can select the Proxy's IP and the Port. Authentication (username, password) is not supported in this protocol.

Nowadays SOCKS4A proxies are not so popular.

Socks5

If you select Socks5, you can connect to any Socks5 proxy. This is the most common use case.

In this case, you can select the IP, Port and optionally Username and Password. Leave them blank if they are not required. With Socks5 you can also change DNS resolution settings. Read in our article.
