How to Authorize IPs

IP Authorization is a fairly simple yet important step on a user’s part to ensure seamless access to proxies. Often, you may find that although you have bought a proxy product, even after adding the username or password, the proxy fails to connect. The reasons behind this scenario could be myriad. Authorizing your IP address helps you connect to your proxies without fail and also avoids the hassle of adding usernames and passwords every time you try to connect to the proxies.

Here are the steps you can follow to authorize your IP address in MountProxies –

  • Go to www.mountproxies.com
  • Log in using your email address and password.

  • In the case of Chrome, create a new proxy profile by adding a protocol (HTTP/HTTPS/SOCKS5), the server, and the port of your proxy product. Don’t add the username and password of your proxy and click “Apply Changes”.
