Smartproxy dashboard – create, edit or delete proxy users for residential proxies

You can create, edit and delete proxy users in the Dashboard > Authentication method > Residential proxies page.

🚧

When you create an account in the dashboard, the system automatically generates a proxy user sp with a default dashboard login password. 

However, if you change the dashboard password, the proxy user credentials will not change (and vice versa).

If you cannot log in to the dashboard, please click Forgot your password?

If you cannot authenticate with proxy user credentials, then change your password in the Dashboard -> Authentication method page.

You can manage whitelisted IPs in the Dashboard > Authentication method page, right below the username and password authentication.

This applies to residential plans only.

You can only add IPs that are in IPv4 format (xx.xx.xx.xx). Make sure that the IP you are adding is yours and you are not using a Proxy or VPN service at the time.

🚧

When you’re adding an IP, make sure that it is an IP only you can access. If you’re using services such as "Amazon Web Services", we highly recommend using the traditional username:password authentication instead.
