Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get it?
Why does it want so many permissions?
Browsers (correctly) consider setting a proxy to be a very privileged action, since you're voluntarily sending all your browsing information to another computer! In this case it's required since we are - by design - setting your proxy information.
How do I import proxies?
Do I need to enter my password?
No. When you import your WonderProxy servers, the import will include a new proxy token that the Switcher uses for authentication with WonderProxy servers.
Why is it blinking red?
You've set a reminder. This is helpful if you're prone to setting a proxy and forgetting about it.
How much does it cost?
The extensions are available for free.
Will the Switcher protect my identity?
The Switcher was designed to assist with testing, not identity protection. Websites may override the switcher's BrowserLocation hook to determine your actual location (if permitted). Additionally some browsers allow requests using
ftp:// which are not routed through the proxy server, and would reveal your true IP address.
