Infatica proxies can be used virtually in all-white hat use cases that involve changing your public IP address.
All web browsers can be set up to use proxies and they can route the Internet traffic through proxies (HTTP or SOCKS).
Proxies offered by Infactica do not need password authentication, but they require IP whitelisting and certificate installation. The first step is to navigate to the Client Area > Services > Active Service and add your IP (the IP of your server or virtual machine). Then choose the desired proxy from the Proxy List and proceed with the proxy setup in your browser.
Proxy browser extensions
Infatica is working on its own browser extension, but it is not yet available.
Proxy software or proxy bots
As mentioned above, Infatica proxies can be used virtually in any business scenario that involves proxies, including scraper software (ScrapeBox, Parsehub), social media bots, proxy bots, or other types of proxy tools (Elite Proxy Switcher, Proxifier).back to menu ↑
Smartproxy uses residential IPs, data center IPs, and mobile IP addresses.back to menu ↑
The IPs are rotated every hour. Consequently, after an hour all the IP addresses are rotated. For the World Mix package, even the location of the proxy may be changed after rotation.back to menu ↑
As IPs are rotated regularly there is no need for IP replacement.back to menu ↑
The authentication method is IP based. You may whitelist your IPs by creating from the Client Area (Dashboard). However, you may need to install an additional security certificate to get the proxies to work properly. Check the Infatica knowledge base for more details.back to menu ↑
The residential proxies come with unlimited bandwidth. For the data center proxies, the bandwidth is charged per usage.back to menu ↑
Speed & Performance
For this Infatica review, I used a trial for the WorldMix package. I switched between several locations and tested the speed using Fast.com.
It is difficult to jump to a conclusion regarding the speed and the performance of the Infatica proxies due to the permanent rotating system. However, as long as I was able to test, the download speed was good and the connection stable.back to menu ↑
