What is Proxychains?
Proxychains is a free & open-source tool that allows us to run any network tool through HTTP(S), socks4, TOR, and socks5 proxy. With the help of proxychains, we can hide your IP addresses on the internet.

In this stage, We have removed “#” on the dynamic_chain.
Now we will write socks5 127.0.0.1 8080 in the last line of the proxy list. Let’s save by ESC and for the exit file wq.
Before starting proxychains, we will first need to start tor services. For that, open your terminal and follow the below command.
