How to Remove Proxy Servers From Macintosh


Proxy servers are used by many school networks for the sake of security. Having a proxy server between students' computers and the Internet helps prevent hacking attempts while also keeping students from using the network for activities that are unauthorized. However, most home networks use routers rather than proxy servers, and when you take your computer home, the configuration will need to be changed. Remove the proxy server from your Macintosh when you are changing networks and no longer need to use a proxy to get online.

  • Click the "Apple" icon, then click "System Preferences." Alternatively, click the "System Preferences" icon on the dock if it is present.

  • Click the "Network" icon.

  • Click "Built-in Ethernet," or the network connection that you are changing, then click "Configure."

  • Click the "Proxies" button in the middle of the window.

  • Confirm that "Manually" is selected on the drop-down menu next to "Configure Proxies."

  • Remove the check from each box under "Select a proxy server to configure."

  • Click the "Apply Now" button to save your changes.
