The path of traffic from your phone to the program you use a proxy in

Terms

Proxy ports - the ip/port/login/password you get in your account. Let’s use the following proxy ports as an example:

IP 31.172.114.132 - this is the IP address of the iProxy.online server when you chose the city closest to you while creating a new Connection
Port 13002
Login username1
Password 123215233124

What is the path traffic takes from your phone to the program using a proxy?

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.

  • The program detects the proxy ports in the settings, so it understands that the website must be accessed exclusively through proxy ports (not the home Wi-Fi).
  • Don’t forget that we input the ip/port/login/password into the program. The program contacts the iProxy.online server using the IP 31.172.114.132 and requests to receive traffic from the 13002 port.
  • The server checks the login and password, and if they match, it contacts the Phone and requests to receive traffic from it.
  • The phone receives the request to visit the facebook.com and fulfills it.
  • Facebook.com sees the request to open the website using the phone’s mobile Internet and responds by sending the website’s content: text, images, etc.
  • The phone sends content to the iProxy server.
  • The iProxy server sends the content to the Program
  • The Program receives the content and opens facebook.com

This way, the following traffic transfer chain is formed:

Program - iProxy server - Phone - Website - Phone - iProxy server - Program. Cover 1.1 (14).png

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.

Why doesn’t proxy ports’ IP address change?

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.

Why you can use the same proxy ports from different accounts

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.

Double traffic consumption on your phone

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.

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”.
