How to use Facebook through a proxy

You can visit Facebook anonymously using a proxy server. You can also use it to unblock access to this social network by changing your real IP address with other data. Facebook does not support the use of proxy servers, so you cannot connect an intermediary server on the site itself. You need to configure the whole thing in a browser, proxy, or computer system parameters. Below we will provide you with detailed instructions on how to configure the proxy setting for Facebook.

Connecting a proxy server for Facebook through computer settings

The peculiarity of this solution is that the proxy will be active not only when visiting Facebook, but also when performing any other network connections. Let's consider the principle of proxy server activation based on the Windows 10 operating system.

To configure a proxy server through the system parameters, follow all the steps outlined in the instructions below:

  1. In the search engine for the operating system, enter the word "Proxy".
  2. In the options that appear, select the action "Manually change proxy server settings".
  3. In the "Manual proxy settings" section, there is a toggle switch next to the "Use proxy server" parameter. Turn it to the "On" position.
  4. In the "Address" and "Port" fields, enter the corresponding data of your proxy server.
  5. In the free field located below, you can enter sites that will not use the specified proxy server.
  6. Click "Save" to update the network connection settings.

The principle of connecting proxy servers on other versions of the Windows operating system will be approximately the same, but taking into account the individual characteristics of the interface.

Configuring a proxy for FB through a browser

For example, consider activating a proxy in Google Chrome. How to connect working proxy for Facebook through this browser:

  1. Open Chrome settings (3 dots icon on top of each other).
  2. Select the sub-item "Settings".
  3. In the line "Search in the settings," write "proxy".
  4. Select the point farthest from the bottom.
  5. The browser will redirect you to the section of the system parameters of the computer, where you will need to select the proxy mode and specify the data of the new server.

On Windows 10, to do this, in the "Manual proxy settings" section, move the toggle switch next to the "Use a proxy server" item to the "On" position and enter the proxy data below: IP address and port. Then you need to click the "Save" button.

On other browsers, the proxy server is connected in approximately the same way, but with individual features of the interfaces.

Setting up a proxy for Facebook through a proxifier

Another way to unblock FB with proxy is to use a proxifier. With this unique program, you can set up a proxy server exclusively for Facebook.

There are different types of proxifiers. Let's consider, for example, setting up a proxy for Facebook through the Proxifier program:

  1. Download this program by finding its official website on the Internet.
  2. Install Proxifier on your computer and launch it.
  3. Go to the following path: "Profile" - "Proxy Servers ..." - "Add".

  4. Enter the IP address, the port of the proxy server.
  5. Select a proxy protocol.
  6. If you are using an intermediary server, access to which is limited by username and password, then check the box next to "Enable" and enter the requested data.
  7. Click "Check" to test the added proxy.

  8. If testing was successful, then click "OK". In case of failure, the replacement of the proxy server will be required.
  9. If you want this proxy to be used by default, select “Yes”.
  10. Click “OK” twice.
  11. Take the following step: "Profile" - "Proxification Rules ..." - "Add".

  12. Name the new rule with any suitable name in the “Name” field.
  13. In the "Target Hosts" section, enter "* facebook.com" into the blank window. Please note that the "*" symbol must be placed in front of the site name.
  14. Next to the "Action" parameter, select the previously added IP address and port from the drop-down list.
  15. Click "OK" to save your changes.

Proxifier, which we used in this review for the example, is paid. It can only be used free for a limited trial period. It is possible to bypass these restrictions using reusable keys that users post on the Internet.

We recommend using a separate proxy server for each Facebook account. This will help avoid blocking by the social network.
