Step-by-Step Guide to creating Modify Headers Rule
Select Modify Headers option
From the Select Rule options, click on Modify Headers and click on Create Rule button.
Define the Request URL (exact URL or URL pattern) on which you want to modify the request or response headers. You can also leave this empty in which case modification will apply to all URLs in your browser.
Select Request Headers or Response Headers
All Request Headers modifications go under the left tab and all Response Header modifications go under the right tab.
Different Modification Options
- Add Header
- Remove Header
- Override Header
Add Header adds a new <header, value> to existing headers. Remove header removes the <header> from existing headers. Override header option only modifies the existing header. If the header doesn’t exist, It won’t add a new header.
Define Multiple modifications
You can combine multiple header modifications for the same URL pattern defined in the rule.
Activate/Deactivate it when not in use
Once you save the rule, you can quickly activate/deactivate it when not in use.
Share with your teammates
You can also share the rules with your teammates with a single click. Just select the rule and click on the Share button to get a link.

Was looking for an extension that could redirect/modify header requests, this was the first thing that popped up. I'm not an expert in web dev, and was having a slight issue getting started. Luckily there is a chat feature for assistance, and it turns out the CEO gave me a helping hand to get exactly what I needed! So far this is one of the best extensions I've seen in a long time!
This is an amazing plugin. I also use the desktop application on my mac to modify headers for traffic that comes from Safari or other applications. Works like a charm! I don't know of other tools with the same capability, better than Charles Proxy!
This has been a godsend tool to play around with headers, especially when doing development. Saves a lot of time while developing something and not having to fiddle around with separate config files, just setup your group for say local/stage/prod dev and it magically routes URLs to the correct environments. Best bit is the modify http response, to stub APIs and do web development without having to worry about backends being ready for consumption and also saves up battery to not have to run a backend server at all times, and also helps setup the same API calls for writing tests. Thank you devs for creating such an awesome product!
