    now i got an IG email verification because i try to login from a different IP.

    when i open the email, click the verification link, it launches a browser. the browser has a default IP.
    how do i make the browser default IP the specific proxy i want to use for the IG account?

    in other words, how do i make IG see me verify from the proxy that I want to use to access the IG account?

    Go to chrome webstore, download switchysharp, insert your proxy into there, then turn on switchsharp.
    Then to be safe, go take a speedtest, or go to whatsmyip, it should verify that you're using your proxy.
    Then open your email, click the link

    sorry, dumb question. it appears that any borwser proxy settings become the default.
    i could also simply copy the link in the email and paste into the browser.

    Sorry, I thought you were also going to be opening the email from the browser with the loaded proxy, which is why i said "click the link"
    But yea, if you're opening the email somewhere else, you can just simply copy the link and paste it into the browser with the proxy on it.

    The thing with switchysharp is that it doesn't make the proxy a system wide proxy, just only for the browser you loaded it in.
