In this post, I will show you the best proxies for TikTok. With many countries banning TikTok, below is a guide for using proxies to access this platform.
There are different types of proxies available that you can use to access TikTok and they include:
A residential proxy is a type of proxy that makes use of an IP address generated by an Internet Service Provider (ISP). In other words, you can say that a residential proxy makes use of a residential IP address. Such proxies are linked to an actual location. The IP address provided by your ISP is always a residential one that is linked to your location.
Now, when you make use of a residential proxy from a premium proxy provider, you are making use of a residential IP provided by an ISP even though these proxy providers are not Internet Service Providers. The IP addresses you’ll be assigned are still pulled from a proxy pool but they are all linked to an actual location; they are real residential IPs. The location can be any country or region of choice.
Residential proxies are considerably more reliable than other types of proxies. They can work for about anything but here, we are interested in accessing social networks. If TikTok had very staunch anti-spam bots, residential proxies would be the best type of proxy to use. Provided that there is no drop in connection, your IP address is linked to a physical location, which makes it difficult for bots to detect that you’re not in that location.
There are residential rotating proxies that are more reliable. These proxies work just like an ISP as it pulls different residential IP addresses from an IP address pool for every browsing session.
You can opt for a geo residential proxy. With such a proxy, you can select not just a target country but also a city and ISP. Also, while using residential proxies on TikTok, some premium service providers do place monthly limits on data you can transfer. Supposing your task requires you to transfer a very large amount of data, the best solution to avoid data transfer limits is an unmetered residential proxy.
You can call datacenter proxies the opposite of residential proxies. Premium proxy service providers have designated servers that act as an IP address pool where proxy IPs are operated. These IP addresses are not residential because they are pulled from servers (the datacenters) instead of ISPs.
Since Datacenter Proxies do not make use of “real IP addresses”, they are easier for bots to detect and block. The advantage of datacenter proxies and while most people would prefer them is that they are very fast. As a result, you could be done with what you intended to do on TikTok before you’ll be noticed and blocked.
Nevertheless, for now, TikTok doesn’t have a strong anti-spam system so you could try using datacenter proxies although residential proxies remain the best. If you’re trying to access a social media platform with a stronger security system like Facebook, the bot will block you as soon as they notice too much traffic coming from your IP address in a short while. To them, such activities are what a bot would do.
However, there are mixed rotating datacenter proxies you can opt for, somewhat similar to the residential rotary proxies. With such proxies, you would be browsing with just IPs from one location proxy server; instead, you browse with IPs from different server locations. If you are a USA resident, you can take advantage of particular USA rotating datacenter proxies. Such datacenter proxies issue IP addresses pulled from IP pools of only USA proxy servers.
Furthermore, there are shared datacenter proxies. Such proxies give you the advantage of using IP addresses from different datacenters and you get unmetered monthly data transfer.
Almost everyone that accesses TikTok does so with a mobile phone. Most of these residential and datacenter proxies are optimized to work on a desktop. If you’ll be making use of a desktop, then you can go with a residential or datacenter proxy, otherwise, you’ll be needing a mobile proxy you can use with your mobile device.
Mobile proxies could be residential or datacenter proxies as well; hence the best to go for remains mobile residential proxies. When talking about mobile proxies, you have the option of 3G and 4G proxies. The trending cellular generation now is 4G, so 4G proxies are what you should consider for compatibility and speed. Unless you’re making use of a device that supports only 3G network which is unlikely.
The way 4G mobile proxies work is simple, they work similarly to mobile Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). You have the option of connecting using HTTP or SOCKS protocol. You’ll be connected to an actual 4G device that uses actual cellular towers to access the internet. It’s like browsing with another mobile phone from your mobile phone and the intermediary mobile phone can be in any country or region.
You can get a dedicated 4G proxy with unlimited IP addresses and it’s best to go for one with unlimited bandwidth and unlimited servers switch too. When it comes to mobile, security is always paramount because there are several third-party apps you might have installed that could cause a leak. Hence, you should only make use of premium mobile proxies.
A TikTok proxy is like a regular proxy except that you are using it to access TikTok. Generally, what proxies do is that they route your web request via an intermediary server before sending it to your destination and that’s also how TikTok proxies work.
When you send a request from your device to access TikTok (the destination), the request gets routed from an intermediary server which could be a server in about any location. Hence, you will be able to access TikTok from anywhere you are, it doesn’t matter if it is banned or not.
All you have to do is to send your request via a proxy with a server in a country or region where TikTok is not banned and you’ll be granted access.
If the Government bans TikTok in your country, for instance, it is made possible by blocking all IP addresses from your region. That is the same way a proxy helps you bypass this block. Instead of accessing TikTok with your local IP, your IP address is replaced with a different one from the intermediary server.
The new IP, similar to what was said earlier, will be from a country or region where TikTok is not banned. The other advantage here is that proxies often feature an IP address pool so you won’t have to make use of a particular foreign IP all the time.
You might want to ask, “Why do I need a proxy for TikTok?” especially when the app is not banned in my country. Well, a TikTok proxy helps bypass geographical restrictions in regions where the app is banned but that is not the only advantage it brings. There are several other uses of proxies with TikTok.
You can use TikTok proxies to make your videos go viral. How? It’s simple. For your videos to go viral on TikTok and be among the trending ones, you need to have lots of engagements, views, shares, likes, and the rest.
With a TikTok proxy, you can use TikTok bots to mass-create accounts and fake engagement on your videos. By default, TikTok only allows one account per user. Operating multiple accounts is not permitted and you could be suspended for it.
This may not be a big deal for regular TikTok users who just make use of the platform for fun but for marketers, it’s even a bigger deal. As a marketer, you need to gain more followers and to make more money and by making your videos go viral with TikTok bots and proxies, that can be achieved.
However, it is not advised that you use bot fake engagements to trick clients into believing that they are real engagements.
Another use of proxies with TikTok is to hide users’ identities. You might want to stay anonymous on the app, not wanting people to know your real location and other details. Without a proxy, your IP address can easily give you away but with a proxy, you can be anonymous online.
To be straightforward, the answer is no. In fact, no major social media platform supports the use of proxies and the reason can be traced down to user privacy. As mentioned earlier, TikTok is against one user managing multiple accounts which is what most persons will want to do with a proxy.
However, while other platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter are constantly on the watch for such proxy-related access, it isn’t the same for TikTok. TikTok is not very strict as the other social media platforms. As a result, you can conveniently access TikTok using a proxy without worrying much about being detected.
However, this doesn’t imply that you might not get blocked. Using just any proxy, like the free ones, will get you blocked and you stand at risk of losing your account. Hence, it is essential that you make use of only premium proxy service.
TikTok was launched in 2017 but it wasn’t until recent years that it caught the buzz. As a social media app that supports over 40 different languages, TikTok is used globally because of its unique features.
With TikTok, people can create interesting short clips, lip-sync, and more. It’s a unique application, about the first of its kind and now, the app boasts of over 2 billion downloads. Now, TikTok is one of the most used social media platforms for marketing and brand promotion.
However, TikTok faces major issues in different countries. This is the issue of banning. With controversies rising on using the app such as addiction concerns, content concerns, user privacy concerns, and a few others.
This has led to a potential ban in different countries and a complete TikTok ban in India. As a result, TikTok users in India are blocked from using their favorite social media app and others in countries like the United Stands are at risk of being blocked too.
However, it’s the internet where almost anything is doable. Whether TikTok is banned in your country or not, you can still make use of the app if you want to. This is why I’ll be showing you the best proxies for TikTok.
TikTok’s went from being unknown to being one of the most popular social media platforms in the world within a short period. I would say the developers were not ready for such massive user numbers in such time; hence TikTok’s anti-spam features are not very staunch.
In this post, we discussed the best proxies for TikTok that can be used to bypass geographical restrictions, make videos go viral, and access the platform anonymously. As mentioned earlier, TikTok proxies are more of an advantage to marketers who can use them to operate multiple accounts on one device at a time.
