How to set up a proxy in ProxyCap

What is ProxyCap

ProxyCap is a handy tool for setting up proxy servers. It allows you to set a proxy for all programs on your device or individual software. For example, if you need to set up a proxy server for only one online game, you can easily do this using ProxyCap.

The service supports the main types of proxies: SOCKS4, SOCKS5, HTTP, HTTPS, and SSH connections. You can use one proxy, or you can immediately create a chain. All you need is a high-quality server, and the program will provide you with reliable protection for your device.
