What is AdsPower?

AdsPower is a multi-login management tool that provides users independent fingerprint browsing for each individual account. Some of this tool’s core capabilities include:

Browser fingerprinting – Define a customized fingerprint for each account in order to attain ultimate levels of security.

Automated operation – Take your real-time monitoring operation progress and combine it with your batched automated operation.

Super Browser – Use a variety of browsers, each possessing its own individual environment

Multi-account operation – Import/export accounts with batches of proxy information

Team Collaboration – Accounts can be used by different users while maintaining environment consistency

IP proxy support – Their systems support and integrate with most major proxies, supporting IPv6

Why you need an AdsPower proxy integration

In practice, AdsPower is used for use cases pertaining to eCommerce and social media marketing in different geolocations as well as managing social media accounts in different GEOs. It provides users with a secure and centralized management tool (much like a CRM in some aspects) with a secure environment in your browser for each dedicated account. If you are managing any number of accounts this is the perfect tool for you.

The only issue is that this tool does not have any global IP infrastructure or networks. Think about it, let’s say you need to manage social accounts in Japan, France, and South Africa. You have the management tool (AdsPower), but what about your ‘fingerprint’ which also needs to be localized? That’s where Bright Data comes in, providing AdsPower users with IPs with very Specific country, city, ASN, and even carrier targeting (for mobile devices, e.g. mobile advertising verification).

Here is how you can set up AdsPower in 3 easy steps:

Step 1: Download and install AdsPower

Step 2: Launch AdsPower and select Upload Accs from the Account Management menu

Step 3: Fill in Bright Data proxy information:

  • Proxy Type: Bright Data

How to automatically match Bright Data’s dynamic residential IPs in AdsPower

Step 1: Click the “Free Upgrade” button in the lower right-hand corner of the AdsPower software to upgrade to the Team version of AdsPower (from $ 25 / month)

Step 2: Go into the menu by heading to EnterpriseSettings

Step 5: Fill in the desired country, state, city information associated with the IP you want to get from Bright Data, or the IP address associated with the account used to log in / currently being used

Step 6: After the configuration is complete, click ‘OK’

Step 7: In the account management dashboard, hit ‘Open Browser’, and AdsPower will utilize the proxy you connected to place you in your desired target region

Summing it up

AdsPower is a great tool which can be used to streamline your browsing efficiency and enhance your privacy while performing data collection tasks. As you may already know, AdsPower does not maintain its own proxy networks which is why you may want to use one of Bright Data’s 4 proxy networks, with our Residential Network serving as the optimal choice for this integration.
