Yesterday I showed you how to turn off the proxy server in the Chrome browser on your PC. A proxy server is an intermediary between your computer and the Internet and can block access to some sites or interfere with a VPN.  You can click here to read that article.

The process is slightly different when using Chrome on a Mac. Here’s how to do it. Open Chrome, click the three-dot menu icon and choose Settings from the drop-down menu.

When Settings opens, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and choose Advanced.
