How to Configure Proxy Server on Samsung Galaxy S4 ?

If your workplace uses a proxy server, you may need to configure your Galaxy S4 with manual proxy settings in order to access the Internet.

  1. On your Galaxy S4, go to home Settings > Wi-Fi
  2. Tap and hold the Wi-Fi network ID (SSID) you’re connected to, and then select Modify network config.
  3. Check Show advanced options.
  4. Scroll down to select Manual for Proxy settings.
  5. Next, fill in the Proxy host name and Proxy port fields with the appropriate information.

  6. Tap Save to save the settings.
  7. Launch the Internet browser to start browsing.

By doing the above, all HTTP traffic that goes through the Wi-Fi connection will be proxied, which means the Internet access should work with any browsers such as the stock browser, Chrome, Firefox, Dolphin and etc. on your phone.


  1. While the proxy settings at Wi-Fi should work with any browsers on your Galaxy S4, but in my testing, I found that it didn’t work with One browser and Maxthon.
  2. I’ve written a similar guide for Galaxy S3 in the past. In that post, I’ve also included 2 additional methods: Configure proxy server at the browser level and Connect to Tor secure network. They’re pretty much applicable to Galaxy S4 as well.
