In Firefox we can remember login details for proxy authorization. How to do it in Chrome.

I have tried giving chrome-proxy://proxy.company.com:port which is suggested in the Google forums, but it doesn't work. Can anybody please help, Chrome is always popping up for proxy logins.

This is very similar to what I fought at my current place of work. I'm sure you've also found something like --proxy-server=http://proxy.example.com:8080 for the desktop file. This works, but I do not believe you can set a login there.

A few suggestions:

  1. Does your proxy use Active Directory logins? Install cntlm and configure it, and then configure chrome to use localhost:3128 when it's running.

  2. Consider installing the foxyproxy plugin for chrome.

  3. If it's a global proxy for a corporate environment and you have a supported desktop environment, you can probably set it similarly in the desktop environment settings and chrome will pick it up. GNOME shell has built-ins for this, however if I remember correctly, you need to use gconf-editor to get to the username and password bit.

Ultimately, I chose cntlm, since I can use it for my package manager (dnf on fedora), Firefox, and numerous other internet applications.
