Working with a Backconnect proxy service (Oxylab.io) we spent a long time looking for a way to authorize it. Originally we used JSoup to get the web pages’ content. The proxy() method can be used there when setting up the connection, yet it only accepts the host and port, no authentication is possible. One of the options that we found, was the following:
Recently we encountered a new service that helps users to scrape the modern web 2.0. It’s a simple, comfortable, easy to learn service – https://dataflowkit.com

Oxylabs.io is an experienced player in the proxy market. In the past few years, they have significantly expanded their proxy pool.
Right now they have a residential proxy pool with over 60M IPs and over 2M datacenter proxies. Their residential proxies cover every country in the world (!) and offer city-level targeting. Oxylabs datacenter proxies come from 82 locations and feature 7850 subnets.
Oxylabs is mainly focused on businesses and it is reflected in their product subscription plans. But recently they have introduced a Fast-Checkout feature, where customers can purchase residential proxies in a few clicks. Together with a recently added smaller plan ($300/month for 20GB of traffic) Oxylabs becomes much more attractive for smaller customers as well.
Proxies are an integrated part of most major web scraping and data mining projects. Without them, data collection becomes sloppy and biased. This is why it’s essential to know how to find the best affordable proxies for any web scraping project.
One of the best proxy types you could use for scraping is residential proxies. In this post, you’ll learn what they are, how they are priced and what to look for before committing your project’s budget.
Often, you want to detect changes on some eBay offerings or get notified of the latest items of interest from craigslist in your area. Or, you want to monitor updates on a website (your competitor’s, for example) where no RSS feed is available. How would you do it, by visiting it over and over again? No, now there are handy tools for website change monitoring. We’ve evaluated some tools and would like to recommend the most useful ones that will make your monitoring job easy. Those tools nicely complement the web scraping software, service and plugins.
After a great deal of work, the Death By Captcha developers have finally released their new feature to the world – new Recaptcha v3 Support.
As you may already know, the Recaptcha v3 API is quite similar in many ways to the previous one used to manage tokens (Recaptcha v2). In Recaptcha v3, the system evaluates or scores each user to determine if it’s bot or human, then it uses the score value to decide if it will accept or not the requests from said user. Lower scores are identified as bots. Check this link to verify the API documentation and download client based sample codes.
With very competitive pricing, Death By Captcha is at the cutting edge of solving tools in the market. Check it out – you can receive free credit for testing from this LINK; ping the service with the promo code below to receive your captchas.
P. S. See the ReCaptcha v2 test results.
So far the latest developments of the services that develop captchas (google, nucaptcha, etc.) are no match for the captcha bypassers, and Endcaptcha is living proof of it.
Endcaptcha developers have been working hard to make this new feature possible – they’re finally releasing Recaptcha V2 support!
Getting precise and localized data is becoming difficult. Advanced proxy networks are the only thing that is keeping some companies running intense data gathering operations.
Residential proxies are in extremely high demand, and there are only a few networks available that can offer millions of IP addresses around the world.
Smartproxy is one of those networks, rapidly growing to offer the best product in residential and data center proxies.
