This post recommends the best proxies for Periscope – a live streaming video app.
Streaming and capturing videos in real-time can be much fun; with Periscope, you can experience what it feels like to be at a live game show or exploring a wildlife park in real-time.
The best proxies for Periscope are the Residential and Mobile proxies. Both proxy types are difficult to identify and blacklist by Periscope because they use proxy IP addresses allocated to home PCs and mobile devices by ISPs, and mobile network providers.
Using free proxies for Periscope is out of the question because Periscope can identify all free proxy IPs and their subnets; hence they do not offer complete anonymity. Besides, free proxies are slow and unstable for sharing or watching live videos; therefore, the need for a reliable source of premium proxies.
Thankfully, ProxyRack offers premium Mobile and Residential proxies that are suitable for Periscope.
Periscope is a social media app platform that lets users share or view videos and experience the fun of the moment live on their mobile devices in real-time.
While watching a live video on Periscope, you can comment or heart a video and also get a response in real-time from the sharer.
To share, comment, chat, or heart a video, you will have to register an account with Periscope using your Twitter details or mobile number. However, you don’t need a Periscope account to view live videos on Periscope.
All videos uploaded on Periscope are available for view for 24 hours, after which the videos are deleted from Periscope’s server.
You need a proxy server to make you an anonymous user on Periscope. If you’ve signed up on Periscope, all your data becomes available for public view, and it becomes impossible to stream or upload videos anonymously on Periscope without using proxies.
Other reasons you might want to use proxies for Periscope include the need to create multiple Periscope accounts, using bots for Periscope, bypassing geo-blocks, etc.
A proxy server stands between your device and Periscope’s server. It acts as an intermediary computer that receives and forwards data requests from you to the Periscope server vice versa.
A proxy server uses its IP address and location to forward and receive data requests to and from Periscope’s server, thus shielding your device’s IP address and location. This makes you an anonymous user making it difficult for Periscope to track and block your account or for other fraudulent users to track you down using your IP address.
Avoid IP ban
Any of Periscope’s admins can choose to mute you, ban you temporarily, or permanently if it considers your content as spam or malicious, unsafe for the populace. You can also get an IP ban for other frivolous reasons. Therefore, it is necessary to use a proxy for Periscope to protect your account from IP ban.
Accessing Periscope from geo-blocked regions
People living in China, North Korea, Afghanistan, etc., are geographically restricted from using Periscope. The only way of using Periscope to share or stream live videos in any of these regions is by using premium proxies to bypass the geographic limitations in place. E.g., China’s Great Firewall restricts users in China from using the Periscope app on their devices.
Open multiple Periscope accounts
Multiple Periscope accounts can be helpful for giving shared videos the widest coverage and getting more followers. However, Periscope does not permit one user to have multiple accounts. Hence, Periscope watches out for multiple accounts linked to a single IP address.
Using proxies for multiple accounts deceives the Periscope server to believe that traffic from such multiple accounts comes from different devices in different regions since a proxy server allows you to set a location to display.
Automating social media activities on Periscope
Growing your fanbase on Periscope means you will be interacting with other users and their shared videos. You will have to chat, comment, and heart shared videos and also share your live videos. These activities can be automated and scheduled using social media automation tools. These also need premium proxies to protect them from detection by Periscope’s antibot mechanisms.
Residential and Mobile proxies sourced from ProxyRack are the best proxies for Periscope and other social media platforms, including Facebook, VK, Twitter, and Instagram.
