Proxy ports - the ip/port/login/password you get in your account. Let's use the following proxy ports as an example:
IP 184.108.40.206 - this is the IP address of the iProxy.online server when you chose the city closest to you while creating a new Connection
End user - the user who connects to the proxy (uses the proxy or .OVPN config).
Wi-Fi split - an option in Android application iProxy, which allows to reduce traffic consumption by 2 times and can improve proxy speed.
iProxy Relay Server - intermediate server between the end user and Android-phone. The end user connects to the iProxy Relay Server, which, in its turn, connects to the traffic of Android-phone.
Scenario: you’re working on your computer. The computer is connected to your home Wi-Fi. The computer has a program (an anti-detect browser) where you enter proxy ports and through that browser visit facebook.com.
Let’s say you decided to open facebook.com in your anti-detect browser.
This way, the following traffic transfer chain is formed:
Program - iProxy server - Phone - Website - Phone - iProxy server - Program.
In the above mentioned example: Anti-detect browser - iProxy server - Phone - facebook.com - Phone - iProxy Server - Anti-detect browser .
As you can see from this chain, Facebook only sees part of the “path” the traffic took: from Facebook to the Phone. The website will only see the external IP address of the phone, since it’s only part of the “Phone-Facebook-Phone” chain.
Facebook doesn’t know where the traffic from the phone goes next, which means you can use the same proxy ports from different accounts.
Because traffic always goes through the same iProxy server. The website you visit has no way of knowing that traffic is going through the server.
Let us remind you that the website you visit only sees your phone’s IP address.
Since the website you visit has no way of knowing that the website’s content gets sent from the phone somewhere else, the former can’t identify the proxy ports either, which lets you safely use the same proxy ports for all your accounts.
It should be noted that this model doubles the traffic consumption:
Classic way to load a website: Phone-Website
Loading a website through iProxy.online: the traffic consumption doubles because the phone additionally sends traffic to the proxy (path section: phone - iProxy server)
. Keep this in mind when choosing a tariff plan and the amount of work that you carry out.
Set up Wi-FI Split option to avoid double traffic consumption and increase the speed of the proxy. Learn more about Wi-FI Split in the article.
If, for example, you have unlimited social media traffic, it will still count, since besides loading the website the classic way (#1 from the above mentioned example), that you won’t get charged for, you’ll still be exchanging data with the iProxy server and THAT path section won’t be covered by your “unlimited traffic plan”.
