Proxies

Updated 2 months ago by Yvonne


Multilogin neither provides proxies nor has any proxies bundled in. However, it supports multiple connections types and can be integrated with 3rd party solutions. This article covers working with  IP and password authenticated of several types: SOCKS4, SOCKS5 and HTTP(S). 

IP authenticated proxies

This section will guide you how to use IP authenticated proxies in Multilogin. Before you start, make sure you have 4 things (if you don’t, ask your proxy service provider):

  • Proxy type (SOCKS4, SOCKS5, HTTP/s)
  • Proxy host/address
  • Proxy port
  • You have authenticated your IP address in the dashboard of your current proxy service provider (ask your provider for more details).

Once you know all of the above-mentioned things, you are ready to get started.

  1. Add a browser profile
  2. In “Proxy settings” choose the type of proxy you are using (SOCKS4, SOCKS5, HTTP/s) 
  3. Insert host and port of the proxy (e.g. host: 12.123.455.12 and port: 8100).
  4. Keep the Username and Password fields empty
  5. Configure the rest of the browser profile and save it (if needed)
  6. Launch the browser profile and verify whether the IP address is changed


Password-authenticated proxies

Note: these type of proxies are particularly useful if you are planning to share sessions with virtual assistants, clients, partners or friends.

This page will guide you how to use password-authenticated proxies in a Mulilogin browser profile. Before you start, make sure you know 5 things (if you don’t, ask your proxy service provider):

  • Proxy type (SOCKS4, SOCKS5, HTTP/s)
  • Proxy host/address
  • Proxy port
  • Proxy Username
  • Proxy Password

Once you know all of the above-mentioned things, you are ready to get started.

  1. Click "New browser profile" in the main menu
  2. In “Proxy settings” choose the type of proxy you are using (SOCKS4, SOCKS5, HTTP/s) 
  3. Insert host and port of the proxy (e.g. host: 12.123.455.12 and port: 8100)
  4. Insert Username and Password of the proxy into their respective fields
  5. Configure the rest of the browser profile and save it 
  6. Launch the browser profile and verify whether the IP address is changed

Troubleshooting

Due to different reasons related to proxy configuration and connectivity sometimes you may experience the following errors:

  • “The site cannot be reached” 
  • “Connection time-out” 
  • “Bad gateway”

      Sometimes it can be resolved through leaving Name and Password fields blank. You will be then prompted to type them in after a browser profile is launched.

      Make sure to check your external IP through https://www.whatismyip.com/ after you configure a proxy mid-session.
