SSL Proxying

Capture and intercept the HTTPS message

SSL Proxying

Proxyman can be used as a man-in-the-middle that logs all HTTP/HTTPS traffic between your applications and SSL Web Server. Proxyman will dynamically generate certificates on-the-fly, which enables developers to see HTTPS in plain text.

Include / Exclude List

You can define rules for:

  • Include List: Intercept the traffic from apps/domains if it's in the include list

  • Exclude List: Ignore all traffic from app/domains in Exclude List

⌘⌥P to quickly open the SSL Proxying List.

Apps / Domains/ Wildcards

Proxyman supports several formats to define a rule:

  • By app: Intercept all traffic that goes from this app

  • By Domain: Intercept all traffic from this domain

  • Wildcard: If it's matched, we intercept it

For instance,




Intercept ALL traffic

*, *

Intercept all domains that have suffix, e.g:,,, ..


Intercept all domains that match the rule e.g:,

Setup Proxyman Certificates

It's crucial to set up the Proxyman Certificate before intercepting any HTTPS requests. You can follow the macOS setup Guide to install and trust the certificate properly.

Enable SSL Proxying

There are two ways to enable SSL Proxying, which are by App or By Domain.

  • Enable in Source List (Left panel)

Right-click on the app and enable HTTPS Response
  • Enable on right-menu on selected Flow in Flow List (Middle Panel)

Right-Click on the flow and enable HTTPS Response
