3rd party tools like Shadowrocket can help you efficiently manage proxies on a day-to-day basis for your specific use cases. Luckily, Oxylabs Residential Proxies can be easily integrated with the Shadowrocket application. In this blog post, we will go step-by-step and with visual explanations on how to integrate our Residential Proxies with Shadowrocket.

What is Shadowrocket?

Shadowrocket is a free and open-source encryption protocol app that secures your online browsing via proxies.

Downloading Shadowrocket

Please note that Shadowrocket is best used with iPhone and iPad. Unfortunately, there is no Shadowrocket for Mac or Shadowrocket Windows. To install Shadowrocket, go to your AppStore and download the app to your iPhone or iPad.

Shadowrocket setup with proxies

To use our Residential Proxies with Shadowrocket, first, open the Shadowrocket application and then click on Add Server.

In the following window, click on Type.

Choose HTTPS and go back to the previous screen.

Enter proxy and authentication information. Under Host type in pr.oxylabs.io. Use port number 7777 to use our backconnect entry. Do not forget to type in your credentials under User and Password. And do not forget to add customer- before your given username. Once you are done, go back to the previous screen by pressing the back arrow.

Country-specific entries

You can also use country-specific entries. For example, if you put us-pr.oxylabs.io under Host and 10001 under Port, you will receive a US exit node with a sticky session.

For a full list of country-specific entry notes, please refer to our documentation.

After filling out the proxy details, you will be able to turn the proxy on. To do that, activate a toggle under Not Connected.

If that is your first time using Shadowrocket, you will get an iOS prompt to add Shadowrocket to your VPN configurations. Click Add. You will need to enter your iPhone passcode to confirm.

And that is it. The toggle at the top of the app should now be activated.

You can easily test if the proxy is working by visiting icanhazip.com.

Conclusions 

Together with Oxylabs proxies, Shadowrocket provides an added level of security and privacy to your iPhone or iPad. 

Shadowrocket proxy integration with Oxylabs Residential Proxies is fast and easy, so you can start working on your projects right away. If you have any questions about integrating Oxylabs proxies, please contact us at any time.
