Omegle is a video chatting social media website that allows its users to talk with other users without needing to register an Omegle account. You can have a one-on-one chat anonymously with random users and without disclosing any of your personal information. You can talk via text, audio, or video and it’s free to use!
Connecting with random strangers from random parts of the world may lead to some dangerous situations. You will possibly meet with some terrible user with malicious intentions. Using a packet sniffer, hackers can track your location by getting your IP address and may threaten you over it. The best way to protect yourself from this would be to use an Omegle proxy.
Proxies act as an intermediary between your device and the internet so any website you visit would only be able to see the IP address of the proxy server and never your own which prevents Omegle users from tracking your IP address and location. The best proxy for Omegle are residential proxies as these types of proxies use actual residentials IPs from real devices making you appear as if you’re a totally different user.
An Omegle proxy is also helpful when Omegle is blocked by your country or network and you want to access it. Also, Omegle bans any IP address that went against their terms and conditions and the only way to unblock Omegle is through a vpn service or a proxy. It’s also not recommended to use a free proxy from random Omegle proxy sites as those are untrustworthy and most likely have already been banned by Omegle. It’s always better to use the best proxies from the best proxy providers.
Let’s set up an Omegle proxy server.
Note: Make sure that the web browser you’re using for Omegle is set to automatically copy your computer’s proxy settings. Google Chrome automatically does this, so it’s recommended to use it.
To set up proxies in Windows, simply search for “Proxy Settings” in your windows search bar and open the search result.
You are then given two options to choose from: Automatic proxy setup or Manual proxy setup. If you want windows to automatically detect your proxy settings, choose the first option. Choose the second option if you want to utilize a specific ip address and port number.
If you chose the first option, then:
- Turn on Automatically detect Settings
- Turn on Use setup script
- Enter the script address
- Click Save
If you chose the second option, then:
- Turn on Use a proxy server
- Input both server address and port number
- If you have any addresses you would like to visit without a proxy, enter them here
- Turn on Don’t use the proxy server for local addresses check box if you want to access a local server without a proxy
- Click Save
To start configuring your proxy settings in MacOS, simply:
Step 1. Click on the Apple Icon.
Step 2. On the drop down menu, click on “System Preferences”.
Step 3. Click on “Network”
Step 4. Click on “Advanced”
Note: Make sure to connect to your wi-fi first.
Step 5. Click on “Proxies”
This should then redirect you to MacOS proxy settings. MacOS is more straightforward compared to windows. You only have one option which is to manually configure your proxy server.
Here are the steps to follow:
- Select which proxy IP protocol you want to configure. This depends on which protocols your proxy service provider offers.
- Turn on Secure Web Proxy
- Input the Proxy Server Address and Port Number
- Click OK to save the configurations
Note: You may be prompted for your Mac user password to save your settings.
To set up a Omegle proxy server for your mobile device, simply change your phone’s proxy settings. The browser you’re using for Omegle will automatically copy your phone’s proxy settings whenever you use it. This is applicable for both Android and IOS. Here’s a thorough guide for Android and another one for iPhone.
Congratulations! You have now finished configuring a Omegle proxy server. Note that the first time you visit it, there will be a pop up asking for your login credentials.
