As a thoughtful progression of Oxylabs solutions, Web Unblocker uses the legacy of Next-Gen Residential Proxies as a foundation to build and improve upon while maintaining Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) as standout technologies.

What is Web Unblocker?

Web Unblocker is an AI-powered proxy solution offering a system of processes that supports block-free web scraping. The system automates unblocking by managing proxies, browser fingerprinting, automatic retries, CAPTCHA bypass, and JavaScript rendering.

As an intermediary between your own web scraper/crawler and a target website, Web Unblocker enables you to eliminate hiccups in public data collection. Let’s take a closer look at the components that ensure block-free web scraping at scale.

Core features

ML-driven proxy management Web Unblocker selects and rotates proxies, evaluates the most suitable proxy pools for a specific site to provide the highest possible success rate along with the lowest response time.

Dynamic fingerprinting – ensures organic traffic resemblance. The system selects the right combination of headers, cookies, browser attributes, JavaScript fingerprints, and proxies to appear as a real user, not triggering CAPTCHAs and bypassing target website blocks.

ML-powered response recognition – the tool creates an effective feedback loop between the scraping results and the experimentation engine to determine outcome quality.

Auto-retries – in case a scraping request fails, the system chooses another combination of client device parameters and sends the request again.

JavaScript rendering – the tool supports HTTP(S) requests to dynamic websites that use JavaScript for rendering content.

Functionality of Web Unblocker

Ease of access to public data – with the power of ML algorithms, Web Unblocker enables users to gather publicly available data from the most complex websites without the risk of detection from advanced anti-bot solutions. 

Pay only for successfully extracted data – in case of failure to extract data, the system auto-retries your query at no extra charge. Make sure to test the functionality with a one-week free trial.

Access localized content worldwide regardless of your physical location, you can access geo-restricted content using country, city, or coordinate-specific targeting. Web Unblocker uses a 102M+ ethically gathered proxy pool covering almost every relevant locale globally (195 countries).

Simple integration – Web Unblocker uses a simple backconnect proxy (a single-entry node) and is compatible with your existing code. If you have already utilized proxies in your infrastructure, simply type in a Web Unblocker’s entry node instead of your current one.

Session control – you can extend your sessions using the same proxy to make multiple requests.
