A Web Unlocker use case

An international electronics retailer needs to collect product pricing data from its competitor’s websites

Problem 1

Target sites detected their scraper

Things were going well until their competitors started using advanced bot detection software, detecting their web scraper. The competitor fed them misleading information, and as a result, products were priced at a competitive disadvantage.

Problem 2

Proxies alone were not enough

Simply masking their IP address wasn’t enough and finding the right browser configurations to bypass their competitor’s sites would cost them too much time and money.

SOLUTION

Bright Data's Web Unlocker

Web Unlocker handled all the work for them. After a quick installation, they told the Unlocker which URLs they wanted to see and their scrapers were able to collect the accurate pricing data. They fixed all the false data they collected, corrected their prices for certain products, and became more competitive than ever — saving their development team a massive amount of time while expanding their data collection operations.

FAQ

Web Unlocker is best for use cases that involve web scraping. Instead of manually dealing with CAPCHAs, blocks, and other restrictions, Web Unlocker does the unlocking for you, and does so at an extremely high success rate (typically 100%). All you need to do is send one request, and the Unlocker takes care of the rest including adapting to constantly changing site blocks.

Web Unlocker uses Bright Data’s proxy infrastructure and has three major components that other premium proxies lack:

1. Request management: Web Unlocker uses retry logic and CAPTCHA-resolving to ensure a near 100% success rate.

2. Complete user emulation including:

  • Network-level – IP type, IP rotation, TLS handshake
  • Protocol-level – HTTP headers manipulation, User-agents generation, and HTTP2 support
  • Browser-level – Cookie management and browser fingerprint emulation (for example, fonts, audio, canvas/WebGL fingerprints, etc
  • OS-level – Emulating device enumeration, screen resolution, memory, CPU, etc

3. Content verification: The data you collect is automatically validated using parameters such as request timing, data types, and response content to ensure you are collecting the highest quality information available.

No, Web Unlocker is not made for use on browsers or third party tools like Adspower, Puppeteer, Playwright, or Multilogin (MLA). If you need a solution that interacts with a browser, which also incorporates Bright Data’s unblocking tool Web Unlocker, check out our Scraping Browser solution.
