Various websites and search engines use browser fingerprinting as protection against malicious bots. Every browser leaves its traces online, so this information allows websites (or search engines) to identify unique users, detect bot traffic, and even track their users’ online activity.
Browser fingerprinting is already making a significant impact on web scraping as well. It gradually becomes the primary tool to identify web scraping bots. One way to beat browser fingerprinting and browse the internet more privately is to use browser management tools.

For Self-Service Dedicated Datacenter Proxies, the port indicates the sequential number of an IP address from the acquired list. Check our documentation for more details.

You can check if the proxy works by clicking Check Proxy.
For login credentials:
Proxy username: your-username
Proxy password: password
In all cases, if everything is fine, click OK which is situated just below the Advanced block.
Step 4. Launch the browser. You can do so by clicking Open under Tags.
As discussed before, the AdsPower tool doesn’t provide proxies by itself. For a smooth web scraping and browsing experience, you need to be sure that you’re using the most reliable proxies. Using AdsPower with our Residential or Datacenter Proxies helps you to avoid many browsing issues, e.g., dealing with browser fingerprinting.
If you have questions on how to configure our proxies in the AdsPower application or considering starting using Oxylabs’ Residential or Datacenter Proxies, contact our sales team for more information.
