How to Set Up a Python Proxy?

Estimated read time 1 min read

To set up a Python proxy, you can use the requests library. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Install the requests library by running the following command: pip install requests
  2. Create a Session object from the requests library and set the proxies parameter to a dictionary containing the proxy information. For example, to use a proxy server running on IP address and port 8080, you would create a Session object like this:
import requests

session = requests.Session()
session.proxies = {
    "http": "",
    "https": "",
  1. Use the session object to send HTTP requests to the desired URLs. For example, to send a GET request to, you would use the following code:
response = session.get('')

This will send the request through the proxy server specified in the proxies parameter.

Note that the proxy server must be set up and running correctly for this method to work. Also, keep in mind that using a proxy can introduce additional latency and security risks, so use this method only when necessary and with caution.
