Unlike other browsers, Chrome does not have its own proxy settings. Instead, you configure the settings for your computer's built-in browser (Internet Explorer on Windows, Safari on MacOS) and Chrome will automatically use these settings as well.

If you want to use Chrome with Burp, please follow the process for configuring the proxy settings in the relevant browser for your operating system:

If you're not sure where your built-in proxy settings are, you can access them from within Chrome.

Open Chrome and go to the Customize menu. In the Customize menu, select Settings, then open the Advanced settings.

Chrome settings

In the Advanced Settings section, click the Open your computer's proxy settings or Change proxy settings button. This will open the relevant configuration options for your host computer.
