How to Authorize your Proxies

If your proxies are not working correctly, the first thing you'll need to check is if your device IP is authorized in the proxy dashboard.

It is important to understand that authorization for the proxies is required to prevent non-authorized users from being able to use the proxies. It keeps the proxies secure to you. That is why the proxies will not work if you do not authorize correctly. 

There are a few different types of authorization options we provide depending on your use case. Please find the authorization type you need below for instructions.

IP Authorization: 

*IP Authorization uses the port 3128 with the proxies.

  4. The proxies will not work for 30 minutes until your IP is fully authorized in the system. The IP will be added to the system after 30 minutes, and then you will be able to use the proxies.
