What is a residential proxy?

A residential proxy functions as a mediator server connecting you to a target. It employs an IP address assigned by an Internet Service Provider (ISP). Residential IPs originate from mobile or desktop devices connected to a local network, so anti-bot systems treat them as genuine users.
