Using proxies is one of the most convenient ways to have unique and persistent IP addresses across multiple browser profile. Proxies come in different shapes and forms and each and of one them can fall into three main categories:
- Authentication type
When you are connecting to a proxy, there is a need for a way to authenticate your access to them, so that not everybody is able to use it for their own purposes. Usually, there are 2 types of authentication to access a proxy: IP authentication or Username & Password authentication.
- Access type
Usually, there are 3 types of proxies: Public, Shared, Private and Virgin. Public proxies can be accessed by anybody – these proxies usually get blacklisted very quickly. Shared proxies can only be accessed by certain number of people. Private proxies can be accessed only by you. Finally, virgin ones are not only private, but have never been used before.
- Protocol type
In terms of connection or protocol, proxies also categorize on SOCKS and HTTP proxies.
However, when it comes to using proxies with Multiloginapp, you will need to know the differences in implementation of IP authenticated and username & password authenticated proxies.
