The differences between mobile proxies and IPv4 server proxies

Blocking from a resource (site, server, social network)

Standard IPv6 / IPv4 Proxy
Normal proxy IP addresses can be easily blocked without harm to the main target audience of the site, resource, social network.

Dynamic (Backconnect / Rotating)  MOBILE PROXIES AIRSOCKS
When blocking a mobile address, ordinary users suffer, as they also use the same IP address, which belongs to the address pool of the mobile operator.
Large site or social network cannot afford to block the IP address from the mobile pool as not only proxy users will be blocked but also ordinary users.
Therefore, mobile proxies completely exclude the IP BLOCKING factor on LARGE sites with a large mobile audience.

Number of available IP addresses

Ordinary proxies are static and are provided by LISTS, buying ordinary proxies you pay for one address!

By purchasing mobile / dynamic proxies, you pay for access to the WHOLE address pool, which can contain thousands of addresses.
Only one proxy gives access to thousands of addresses.
Mobile proxies are dynamic, i.e. the external address from which the site is
accessed (resource, site, etc.) changes according to time or calling the link (API), and the connection address to the proxy that you register in your program (software, browser, curl, etc.) does not change. This makes it easier to work with a large number of addresses.

Reliability, lifetime

Ordinary proxies can “die” very quickly after purchase, not to mention the fact that they can be banned immediately. You will have to change the settings, replace proxy, etc.

Mobile proxies AIRSOCKS do not “die”, providing an adequate service level. You do not have to worry about that the proxy will “die”.
We support the service and guarantee that purchased proxies will work. If there are any problems, our support will solve everything.

Who owns the address?

Modern protection systems against automated actions (parsing) and bots check IP addresses of certain companies and data centers and can distinguish addresses that ordinary users cannot have.

Ordinary proxies in most cases provide addresses belonging to data centers (data center addresses); private individuals cannot have them on computers or mobile devices.

Mobile proxies provide addresses that are used by ordinary users and this does not allow systems to detect suspicious activity during the IP verification phase.

Determining the proxy’s operating system and checking the User-Agent

Modern systems can determine the fingerprint of the operating system at the TCP / IP level. (The technology is called p0f, Passive OS fingerprint)

Most of the usual proxy servers are made on Linux and, accordingly, leave a fingerprint of Linux. At the same time when the software and the browser  connects to the site / social network or other resources usually use the User-Agent header from standard user operating systems (Android, OS X, Windows). When this difference is detected, proxies and accounts will be blocked!

Only Mobile proxies AIRSOCKS allow replacing the fingerprint of the operating system, so that there is no discrepancy between the User-Agent and the Passive OS Fingerprint at the network level.


Ordinary proxies can be bought for about 0,5-2 $ / pcs, taking into account all the disadvantages described above.

Dynamic proxies provide access to thousands of addresses, which reduces the cost of one address to less than 0,01 $.

In order to work with dynamic proxies and get multiple results (100-200-500% more than on regular proxies), you need to deeply study the formation of addresses from mobile users and synchronize the change of addresses, so as to fully emulate the possible behavior of a real user.
