What is a private proxy?

A private proxy is an intermediary that works as a virtual bridge between a user's device and the target. Private proxies are exclusively used by a limited group of users, offering peace of mind that the assigned IPs are genuine and not blacklisted.

Frequently asked questions

What is a private proxy server?

A private proxy server acts as an intermediary between your device and the internet, providing an additional security layer for various online activities. Private proxies also help to avoid CAPTCHAs and IP blocks when conducting market research, monitoring SEO performance, and managing multiple social media accounts.

What is the difference between a private proxy and dedicated proxy?

A private proxy and a dedicated proxy are essentially the same. Both refer to a proxy server exclusively used by a limited group of users.

Why use a private proxy?

Using a private proxy enhances online privacy by masking your original IP address. It's also useful when you want to access geo-restricted content or want to avoid blocks when completing traffic-intensive tasks like web scraping or market research.

How do I set up a private proxy?

It’s rather simple! Here’s a quick guide on setting up private proxies:

  • Create your Smartproxy account;
  • Choose the proxy type that better suits your use cases – we recommend choosing between residential and datacenter proxies;
  • In your dashboard, select the proxy type and choose the subscription option;
  • You’ll then be presented with a Proxy setup page where you can authenticate your IPs with username:password or whitelist your IPs.

After that, you can integrate your proxies with third-party tools or plug ‘em with our proxy extension for even easier proxying. 

How do I get a personal proxy?

If you want to get IPs that are truly yours, we recommend getting dedicated datacenter proxies

What are the locations for your proxies?
