Bright Data SDK - how we get our IP peers for our residential network and monetize apps for our partners

Bright Data is the World’s Largest Residential Proxy IP Network providing companies the ability to emulate a real user in any country, city or carrier (ASN) in the world. These real-user IPs are utilized to conduct ad verification, price comparison, security, website testing or any online environment where transparency and net neutrality are required.

How does Bright Data acquire its Residential IPs?

Bright Data has an SDK (software development kit) that is implemented into applications. Bright SDK provides an attractive alternative to advertisements by providing the app user with the choice to opt-in to Bright Data’s network instead. For every user that opts-in to the Bright Data network, Bright Data pays a monthly fee to the application vendor, who passes that value on to the user by not displaying ads. The Bright SDK provides monetization for the app owner while offering the user a better experience.

How does the Bright SDK work?

When a Bright Data partners’ application is downloaded the user can choose to see ads or become a peer in Bright Data’s network. Users choose (opt-in) to be part of the Bright Data Network, and may opt-out at any time. To become a peer, three conditions must be met, the device must be idle (not-in-use), connected to the internet and plugged into a power source (or battery power over 60%). There is no collection of user’s data and as a result, the app now can offer a better user experience. Bright Data’s partners have seen an increase in not only installs but also in user engagement

Bright Data is not only the world’s largest Residential Network, but it is also 100% opt-in and trusted by Fortune 500 companies across the globe. We are always looking to expand the Bright Data network and are currently interested in working with Windows and Android Applications.
