How do we get our residential IPs?

Bright Data has an SDK that allows 3rd party apps to offer their users an appealing alternative to paying or watching ads — by choosing to become peers on Bright Data’s residential network. This way, users can choose an alternative to paying for or watching advertisements, the app developer gets paid by Bright Data, and Bright Data can offer its customers a larger and more distributed network.

Bright Data's rotating residential network around the globe
Bright Data’s residential network allows customers to use a few megabytes of bandwidth every day while their device is free (not in use) and as long as the device is charging or has more than 60% battery life.

Any peer is asked whether he wants to opt-in and become a peer, and he can easily opt-out at any time.

Who can use Bright Data’s residential network?

Only companies that pass Bright Data’s strict user compliance evaluation (Know Your Customer) process successfully.

KYC = Know Your Customer
Prospects who wish to use Bright Data’s residential network fill up a “Residential activation” form, in which they identify themselves by providing personal details (email, phone number, address, social profile, payment method, and more) and sign an agreement in which they confirm that all their activity is legal. After their details are checked and verified manually, they may be approved.
Bright Data’s systems and personnel continue to monitor the customer’s activity to ensure that it is compliant with the agreement.

This is what the form looks like:Residential IP activation form
