Postman is a service for software and website testers. Using it, you can perform autotests, send requests and receive responses, and save requests to the repository. This tool greatly facilitates the monotonous workflow of a tester.
To secure your work in Postman, we recommend setting up a proxy server. It will make you anonymous on the web and protect all data from hacks and leaks. Below you will find instructions on how to set up a proxy in Postman.

Setting up a proxy in Postman
Run the program, open the "File" tab in the upper left corner, and then "Settings".
Go to the "Proxy" section.
Check the "Add a custom proxy configuration" box. If you have a different version of the program, move the switch to the “On” mode next to "Global proxy configuration".
Select the protocol of your proxy, and enter the IP address and port.
If you use personal proxies (and we recommend purchasing one for Postman to keep all your data as secure as possible), move the switch to the “On” position next to "Proxy Auth". Enter the Username and Password of the proxy.
In this field, you can add rules to sites or addresses for which the proxy server should not work.
Click the cross in the corner of the window to save the setting. Done!
To disable proxy in Postman, check the “Respect HTTP_PROXY…” box. If you have a different version of the program, move the switch to the “Off” mode next to "Global proxy configuration".
Which proxy protocol to use Postman
Postman does not support SOCKS protocol proxies, so choose HTTP or HTTPS servers. They will provide you with a fast and reliable workflow and protect your data from blocking or leaks.
