6. Once you have chosen a proxy, a sign-in box will pop up. When it pops up on your screen, just click cancel a few times until it disappears. If the box doesn't disappear after clicking cancel a bunch of times, enter the username and password of your user:pass proxy. They will be a combination of letters and numbers after the IP:port. For example, "123.45.67.892:0123:ABCD1:2EFG34HI" The username will be "ABCD1" and the password will be "2EFG34HI."

7. Once the box disappears, feel free to go on any website you would like to test your proxies on. If the site loads perfectly fine, then your proxies work.
