Set a custom HTTP header that will be included when using the Switcher. It's occasionally useful to identify your testing traffic, either to bypass your CDN, or to have your testing traffic omitted from analytics.

  1. Open WonderProxy Switcher extension and click Settings
  2. Ensure that the arbitrary heading setting is checked and you have added values to both fields required
  3. Make sure to save your changes

Exclude/Include Domains

Specify domains you’d like to include or exclude from proxied traffic. Exclusion domains are useful when you wish to access internal network resources (like a bug tracker) while using the proxy, inclusion is useful when you wish to only route some traffic through the proxy (like your website) while skipping the proxy for all other traffic.

  1. Open WonderProxy Switcher extension and click Settings
  2. Add a domain to either the inclusion or exclusion lists (domain.com, *.domain.com)
  3. Save your changes

Warnings & Notices

Notice for Chrome users

This popup may appear at some point after installing this plugin. It's warning you (correctly) that configuring a proxy server means all the data in your browser will be sent through that proxy. In our case, that's what we want: to use a proxy server for GeoIP testing. You will need to select "Keep Changes" to continue using the WonderProxy Switcher.

Chrome Warning: Your Internet Connection is Being Controlled, etc.
