Authorizing Residential Proxies

What does authorizing my IP mean?

You are pre-authorizing the use of the proxies so that they can establish a successful connection.

This is mandatory. Your proxies will not work if you do not enter an IPV4 in the authorized list.

You are authorizing the IP where you are running your bots. 

We will repeat this again: You are authorizing the IP where you are running your bots. This means if you are on a server, you auth that IP. If you are local host, then you auth that IP. 

What if I have a server?

You need to enter the IPV4 of your server so the proxies will work.

Do I have to authorize my IPs?

You have to auth your IP. Your proxies will not work if you do not enter an IPV4 in the whitelist. 

What if I don't authorize my IPs?

If you do not whitelist your IP, your proxies will not work. 

How do we authorize an IP?

1. Purchase your specific residential plan.

2. Visit your orders page here. Make sure to click into the correct tab for your plan you purchased.
