How do residential proxies work?

Learn the basic facts about residential proxies in this article: how they protect your anonymity online and eliminate blocks.

A residential proxy acts as an intermediary for your Internet traffic. When you send a request to a website, the proxy receives it, replaces your IP address and location with the new one, and sends an updated request to the addressee. This not only preserves your anonymity but also ensures that the website you are requesting is "seen" as a normal user.
