After installation, how do I know Incoggo is working?

After installing Incoggo, for a variety of reasons, , you may find that the application appears not to be working. Here’s a troubleshooting checklist that should help resolve some common issues:

1. Ensure that Incoggo is ‘active’. When you click the icon in your menu bar, you should see something similar to the image below in the dropdown menu.

2. Ensure the system proxy settings are set correctly. To check this, open the System Preferences application, then navigate Network → Advanced → Proxies. You should see something similar to the following (HTTP and HTTPS should both be checked):

3. Ensure that your browser is filtering traffic correctly. To check this, open your browser of choice and click the lock symbol in the URL bar. You want to find an option that says something similar to ‘show certificate’ or ‘certificate is valid’ (on Google Chrome, this option is listed under the ‘Connection is secure’ menu). When you click this, you should see incoggo_ca listed. On Google Chrome, this looks like the below:

4. Ensure that you do not have any other proxies, VPNs, or VPN / proxy browser extensions running at the same time as Incoggo. Even if not running, some VPN browser extensions have been known to cause issues with Incoggo filtering if they are still ‘enabled’.

If any of 1., 2., 3., or 4. is not correct, you should try restarting the application, using the restart function seen here:
