The Web Proxy Autodiscovery Protocol (WPAD) is a method used by web browsers, primarily Internet Explorer, to locate a proxy auto-config file automatically and use this to configure the browser's web proxy settings.

The method, devised by Microsoft, is available as an IETF internet draft "draft-ietf-wrec-wpad-01". The draft expired in December 1999 and has not, as of 2007, become an internet standard. Nevertheless, Internet Explorer and other major browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Opera retain this functionality.
