Proxy Integration with Sphere Browser

Regardless of your internet browsing destinations, you can be sure that you’re being traced, monitored, and possibly recorded, with traces of your data stored in long-term storage. You can’t be anonymous without conscious precautions and dedicated tools. 

Sphere is a free Chromium core based anti-detection browser for managing multiple identities and protecting user’s digital fingerprint. Each browsing session automatically changes or encrypts (using the most trusted AES-256 encryption) the entirety of detectable data shared by your computer under the guise of a disposable virtual identity. 

Naturally, on top of all the aforementioned security measures, the browser allows you to change and rotate your IP address. Geo-location change is an essential measure in ensuring anonymity.

This article will showcase how to integrate Oxylabs Dedicated Datacenter Proxies with the Sphere private browser on Windows (the process on Mac OS and Linux is identical to the one described below).

How to set up proxies with Sphere?

The portable format allows you to use the browser without installation. You can easily run Sphere from an external drive or a private section of your computer.

  1. Navigate to the official website and download the Sphere browser.

  2. Extract the downloaded files to a preferred location.

  3. Click Sphere.exe and run the program.

  4. Set up your account with a password-only login.

Now, let’s configure a new identity.

  1. Once on the home screen, click on a new identity.

Setting up a new identity

Note that Sphere requires a numerical connection IP. Therefore, this integration showcases Dedicated Datacenter Proxies as you can acquire a proxy list and use the listed IPs one by one instead of a random IP address provided by a common (alphabetic) address.

2. In the Session setup window, fill in the identity name and choose your connection type, such as Tor, HTTP, SOCKS5, or SSH Tunnel. 

In this case, choose HTTP or SOCKS5 connection according to your proxy purchase and enter the following: 

Connection IP: a specific IP address

Proxy port: 60000

You’ll need to choose a specific IP address from an acquired list. Please refer to our documentation for more details.

3. Enter your Oxylabs sub-user’s username and password. You can create and manage your proxy sub-users with our all-in-one dashboard.

4. Detail the Timezone and language settings and click Save.

The new identity is now set up. Keep in mind that you can import and export your identities by clicking Identity import/Identity export under Tools.

And that’s it. You can multitask without the fear of being interrupted or blocked. Browser instances (tabs) will be viewed as separate devices and browsers originating from different locations.

Wrapping up

Sphere is a simple-to-use browser designed to enhance security and anonymity in everyday tasks as well as to help manage multi-account tasks.
