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).

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.
