Burp Proxy operates as a web proxy server between the browser and target applications. It enables you to intercept, inspect, and modify traffic that passes in both directions. You can even use this to test using HTTPS.

Burp Proxy is an essential component of Burp Suite's user-driven workflow. You can use it to send requests to Burp's other tools.

Note

Using Burp Proxy may result in unexpected effects in some applications. Until you are fully familiar with its functionality and settings, you should only use Burp Proxy against non-production systems.

Burp Proxy works with Burp's browser to access the target application. To launch Burp's browser, go to Proxy > Intercept and click Open Browser. All traffic for this browser is proxied through Burp automatically.
