Apify Proxy

Improve the performance of your web scrapers by smartly rotating datacenter and residential IP addresses.

Sometimes you need a helping hand from other IP addresses.

Proxies not only prevent blocking but also let you access content, which can vary based on your location.

Combine that with intelligent proxy rotation and take your scraping to the next level.

IP address rotation

Every scraping request is assigned a different IP, which lowers the chance of your activity being tracked or getting blocked. Our addresses are checked regularly, with dead or burned proxies automatically removed from the pool, ensuring healthy and reliable scraping sessions.


Seamless integration with the Apify platform

Proxies are an integral part of Apify platform’s ecosystem and are easy to set up and use by any Actors. You can easily track your proxy sessions to monitor your usage and spending.

Additional charges for data transfer apply.

Shared datacenter IPs.svg
Shared datacenter IPs

Datacenter IP addresses shared with other users. They represent the most cost-effective option for many websites, although there is a chance of IP-blocking due to the activity of other users. Included in all plans by default.

From $0.6 per IP

Dedicated datacenter IPs.svg

Dedicated datacenter IP addresses are not shared with other users. You have full control of the traffic over these IPs, resulting in a predictable blocking and crawling rate. Dedicated datacenter IPs are available on request.

From $7 per IP

Residential IPs.svg
Residential IPs

Download your data over IP addresses located in homes and offices of people all around the world. These IPs have the lowest chance of getting blocked and have the best geographical coverage.

From $8 per GB

Frequently asked questions

How do I set up Apify Proxy?

When using scrapers from Apify Store, proxies are generally set to Automatic by default, with no further configuration necessary. If you’re building an actor with the Apify SDK and would like to implement Apify Proxy, you need to add the ProxyConfiguration class into your code.

How do I change the settings of Apify Proxy?

Settings can be changed through Apify Console, where you can adjust parameters such as the type of proxy and its location. You can also input the URL of a custom proxy via the “Own proxies” tab.

Can I use Apify Proxy outside of the Apify platform?

Our free plan lets you use proxies within Apify Console. To use Apify Proxy externally, you need to subscribe to a paid plan.

Using proxy servers is legal, as is web scraping. You just need to make sure not to scrape data that is protected by copyright or contains sensitive information such as personal data.

Can I use Apify Proxy in a web browser?

If you have a paid plan, you can use our proxy for browsing the web or testing the target websites you would like to scrape. Simply install a proxy browser extension and input the Apify Proxy configuration.
