How to authorize IPv6 proxies

How to authorize Rotating proxies

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

  1. Get your PC/Device's IP - To do this, open your web browser, and click this LINK
  2. Login to your IPv4 Proxy Dashboard
  3. Select 'Via IP', 'HTTP' in the Authorization Type section of your dashboard
  4. Enter your device IP in the Authorized IPs and then click 'Add IP'
