IP Authorization Instructions
We provide multiple ways to update your IP address and grant you access to our proxy network. To start, navigate to the IP Authorization page for the subscription you wish to modify.

Your public IP address, the one provided by your Internet Service Provider, is the information we use for identification purposes. When you authorize an IP on your account, we then take that IP and allow it access on our firewall. This way only our customer's authorized IPs get white-listed and are allowed access to our proxy services. Unauthorized IPs are blocked.
Note that you only need to authorize your IP if you are using DNS Proxy, HTTP or SOCKS5 Proxy services. If you are only using our VPN service, you do not have to authorize your IP address.
