Learn how to setup your SessionBox proxy settings and integrate with Bright Data’s Proxy IPs.
SessionBox allows you to create different browser profiles in a single window.
It enables you to login into multiple accounts on the same site at the same time.
This can be very useful for data collection and social media automation.
To secure your identity and overcome various types of anti-data collection and other sorts of restrictions deployed by your target website, Bright Data proxies integrate with SessionBox so you can perform your job seamlessly.
