How to Set Up Proxies With Adspower

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.

Installing AdsPower

The overall process is the same for both Oxylabs Residential and Datacenter Proxies. To understand how it’s performed in detail, you can simply follow these steps:

Step 1.  Download AdsPower. You can get the tool from their official website by clicking here

Step 2. Create a profile. Open the app and click Create.

Step 3. Specify proxies. To specify which proxies you want to use fill out the form as follows:

Residential Proxies

Proxy type: HTTP

Proxy host: pr.oxylabs.io

Proxy port: 7777

For login credentials:

Proxy username: your-username

Proxy password: password

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

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

You can check if the proxy works by clicking Check Proxy.

Dedicated Datacenter Proxies

Proxy type: HTTP

Proxy host: 1.2.3.4

Proxy port: 60000

For login credentials:

Proxy username: your-username

Proxy password: password

Same as with the residential proxy example, you can check if the proxy works by clicking Check Proxy.

In both cases, if everything is fine, click OK which is situated just below the Browser fingerprints block.

Step 4. Launch the browser. You can do so by clicking Open under Profile Management.

Conclusion

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.
