What Are Mobile Proxies?

Mobile proxies are a specialized solution comprising dedicated equipment and software. They act as intermediaries between your device and the open internet. A remote server receives signals from your device, assigns it a new IP address, and forwards it to the internet. Consequently, your real address is masked, and access to the global network occurs with entirely different data.

This method is quite effective and opens up broad possibilities, prompting many users to opt for mobile proxies for regular use.

Advantages of Data Substitution Relative to Location:

  • Bypass restrictions on many resources.
  • Access music, games, and movies.
  • Browse websites safely and download files from torrent trackers.

In simple terms, mobile proxies are similar to regular servers, except that the device is assigned an IP from one of the cellular operators. A person can use a SIM card from one provider, while the fixed signal will come from another. Additionally, the communication standard, such as LTE, 3G, or 4G, can be altered.

Using Mobile Proxies in Social Networks

Internet professionals know how to utilize mobile proxies in their work.

The functional advantages of proxies help people in various professions:

  1. SEO specialists conduct keyword parsing to compile semantic cores and gather extensive information to study various factors.
  2. Marketers expand the target audience reached by advertising campaigns, promote services, and goods.
  3. Arbitrage specialists smoothly process various traffic sources.

Usually, social media algorithms identify repetitive actions, considering them suspicious, and may impose sanctions like blocking or reducing trust levels for such accounts. However, cellular operators have a limited number of addresses, so this rule does not apply in this case.

Most often, a large number of subscribers are registered on one server. Due to address blocking, all users connected to it may suffer, so the practice of restrictions does not extend to mobile operator IPs.

Advantages of Mobile Servers

A private server allows the registration of multiple profiles for successful business promotion and advertising launch. Meanwhile, the user remains anonymous and can conceal information about their activities.

Unlike other types of connections, a mobile proxy server is more functional regarding social platforms. It significantly simplifies processes like mass profile viewing, subscribing, and distributing likes. Specialists can run an unlimited number of advertising campaigns, including contextual ones. Optimizers have an excellent opportunity to parse without limitations, simulating natural internet activity, thus speeding up the process and increasing its efficiency.

Equipment from Alt VPN ensures a high level of security. Connecting through an intermediary server allows hiding personal information as well as logins and passwords. Analytical algorithms from social and search systems cannot identify the device and collect data about it.

What Are Mobile Proxies Used For?

There are numerous use cases for mobile proxies, and we’ll describe the most popular ones here.

Social Media Marketing (SMM)

Are you trying to grow your presence on social media platforms like Instagram, VK, Twitter, TikTok, or Facebook, but facing constant account blocks?

Technologies are evolving, and social networks have become adept at detecting server proxies (IPv4). They scrutinize numerous parameters, with particular attention to the provider hosting the IP address. They can discern that the IP address used to log into the system doesn’t belong to a real user but likely to a bot attempting automated actions. We’re not suggesting that server proxies are obsolete; however, mobile proxies offer a more convenient and secure option for account growth on social media platforms. We highly recommend using mobile proxies.

Why Are Mobile Proxies Better Than Server Proxies?

Mobile proxies operate on a mechanism involving:

Modem from a mobile operator > Real SIM card, real IP address of the mobile provider

This setup is what our clients receive after purchasing and connecting mobile proxies. With such IP addresses, social media mechanisms perceive you as real individuals casually accessing the network, thus raising no suspicions.

It’s worth noting that if a social network intended to block you, it would entail significant risks, as many people could be affected since multiple individuals might use the same IP address. Hence, it’s not in their interest.

Posting Ads on Platforms like Ebay, Amazon, etc.?

Forget about blocks; these services operate on the same algorithms as social media platforms. You’ll be seen as a genuine user accessing the site from a mobile device or computer. Many satisfied customers are already using mobile proxies for ad placement or web scraping—join them.

In summary, in simple terms, mobile proxies are suitable for virtually any purpose, including:

  • Mass registration of accounts on social media platforms, messengers, and more.
  • Comment and Direct message blasts.
  • Traffic arbitrage and multi-account creation.
  • Private users seeking to maintain anonymity online.

Differences Between Shared Channel and Private Channel

We offer two communication channels to choose from: the «Shared Channel» and the «Private Channel.»

Private Channel

If individuality and having no neighbors nearby are important to you, then you’ve made the right choice.

When you connect to mobile proxies via a private channel, you gain complete control, down to rebooting the modem if you wish.

Features of the Private Channel:

  • When you connect to the modem, you become the sole owner managing the mobile proxies, with no additional clients on your modem.
  • Full control over the modem, change the IP address at any time with a click, and set a specific time for IP address changes. We offer our own API for developers, allowing you to customize the interval for changing IP addresses as needed.
  • No limitations on connections; utilize your service to the fullest.

Shared Channel

In addition to you, there are 2-3 other users on the modem with whom you share the channel speed.

Features of the Shared Channel:

  • You receive the same high-quality and secure IP addresses from mobile operators. However, you cannot change the IP address by time or at your discretion. The IP address changes automatically every 5 minutes, regardless of whether you wish to change it or not.
  • The shared channel does not offer the ability to work through an API, nor does it provide control over the modem.

We want to emphasize that despite the limitation of the shared channel, both mobile proxy tariffs are suitable for any purposes and tasks.

If you’re unsure which mobile proxy channel to choose, feel free to reach out to our support team or speak to our specialist in the online chat. We’ll be happy to help you make the right choice.

How to Access Modem Functions and API

If you’ve purchased mobile proxies with a Private Channel, you’ll need to visit altvpn.link (this page only works with connected mobile proxies).


  • Change IP address with a click or at a set time.
  • Work through an API for programs or developers.
  • Reboot the modem.

Are These Features Available on the Shared Channel?

Unfortunately, no. These features are only available on the Private Channel.

HTTP vs SOCKS5: What’s the Difference?

When you purchase a proxy server, you have access to three protocols for use: HTTP/HTTPS and Socks5.


  • Recommended for: Browsers and programs that support the protocol.
  • Pros: Easy to use, no authentication required.
  • Cons: Not as secure as Socks5, can’t be used with all programs.


  • Recommended for: Programs that don’t support HTTP/HTTPS, anonymous browsing.
  • Pros: More secure than HTTP/HTTPS, can be used with all programs.
  • Cons: More difficult to set up, requires authentication.

Here is a table that summarizes the key differences between HTTP/HTTPS and Socks5:

ProtocolTCPTCP or UDP
AuthenticationNot requiredRequired
SecurityLess secureMore secure
CompatibilityWidely compatibleNot as widely compatible

Which protocol should you use?

If you are looking for a simple and easy-to-use proxy for browsing the web, then HTTP/HTTPS is a good choice. However, if you need a more secure proxy for use with programs that don’t support HTTP/HTTPS, then Socks5 is a better option.

Here are some additional tips:

  • If you are using a proxy server to access blocked websites, make sure that the proxy server is located in a country where the website is not blocked.
  • If you are using a proxy server to protect your privacy, make sure that the proxy server does not keep logs of your activity.
  • If you are using a proxy server to improve your internet speed, make sure that the proxy server is located close to your physical location.

Proxy Authentication: Login & Password vs IP Binding

How do your proxies work? Do they use login and password authorization or IP address binding?

By default, all our proxies use login and password authorization. However, we can also set up IP address binding for you if you have a static IP address.

What is IP address binding?

IP address binding is a method of proxy authentication that allows you to access the proxy server without having to enter a username and password. Instead, your IP address is used to authenticate your connection.

How do I get IP address binding?

To get IP address binding, you need to have a static IP address. You can then contact our support team and they will help you set up IP address binding for your account.

What are the benefits of IP address binding?

IP address binding offers a number of benefits, including:

  • Convenience: You don’t have to enter a username and password every time you connect to the proxy server.
  • Security: IP address binding can help to improve security by preventing unauthorized users from accessing the proxy server.

What are the drawbacks of IP address binding?

IP address binding also has a few drawbacks, including:

  • Compatibility: Not all proxy servers support IP address binding.
  • Flexibility: You can only use the proxy server from the IP address that is bound to your account.

Which type of authentication should I use?

The best type of authentication for you depends on your individual needs and preferences. If you are looking for a convenient and secure way to connect to a proxy server, then IP address binding may be a good option for you. However, if you need to be able to connect to the proxy server from multiple IP addresses, then you will need to use login and password authorization.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our support team.
