Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of product is offered by litport.net?
We provide high quality mobile proxies. These proxies give your an IP address like you are using 4G/LTE connection on a mobile device. That means that you will be like millions of other users of mobile carriers. Moreover, your TCP fingerprints will also be like you are using typical Android phone.
We offer devices in United States in different locations. All our IPs are fresh and clean, never been used for proxy purposes before.
How's mobile proxies different from residential proxies?
Most of residential proxies you may get on the market today, are belong to hacked computers and IoT devices. They change frequently and loose its reputation pretty fast after being used on of those residential proxies networks. Usually you have no control and no idea on how fast your IP changes and from what device it comes from.
In our case, you have specific mobile device that are assigned to you and you can be sure that it's the same location and clean IP without any hackish background. For any website you will look as a typical mobile user. It gives you maximum possible reputation and trust.
What type of proxies do you offer?
We offer backconnect rotating proxies.
Backconnect means that you connect to our server first, and then it routes your traffic via specific mobile proxy. When you use a common proxy, you usually connect directly to the proxy server.
Rotating means that your external IP address changes automatically every X hours (see port description), you don't need to change proxy settings in your software.
This type of proxies doesn't affect your business in any way. We just state it for your better understanding how things work.
What type should I get?
If you are a beginner or just wanna try mobile proxies for the very first time, try to get shared ports. But keep in mind that it may work nice for you today, but tomorrow your neighbour can make a mistake and all of your accounts will be affected. It's always risky to work on shared ports.
If you are a professional and already know what you are doing, then your best option is a private port. This is the only way you can be find the proper settings of your software and use the proxy performance potential by 100%.
These aspects apply to not just litport.net, it's about any mobile/residential proxy providers, it's just how stuff works.
Currently I pay $15 per month for a mobile proxy, why would I pay more at litport.net?
There are providers on the market that set that low prices. But you need to understand that there is no such thing as free money, there are dozens (if not hundreds) of clients that pay same amount and get access to the same device. One mobile device has one IP address at the moment. That means that all those people share the same mobile IP. And most of them are newbies chasing for cheap service and run enormous amount of actions out of safe limits.
Moreover, there is no technical way to detect amount of social accounts per customer. It's impossible because all traffic is encrypted nowadays. A proxy provider cannot limit amount of social accounts per customer.
All these factors make that $15 IP even worse than a typical data center proxy, because social networks clearly see all inconsistent patterns of behaviour coming from the same mobile IP and they mark it as suspicious.
Conclusion: for the best performance use private ports or shared ports with limited amount of customers per port. At litport.net we limit shared proxy to 5 clients maximum.
What are a port and an access token?
Port is a term that describes specific proxy. It has a specific device assigned to it, type (private / shared), IP rotation frequency and other settings.
Access token is a combination of username, password, hostname and TCP port. When you get our proxies, you receive a separate token for each proxy port with specific expiration date.
How will I get my proxies?
You need to register on this website, then you will get access to your control panel where you can see all of your current proxies, credentials, expiration dates and other information. Everything is automated, we invested a lot of time and resources to build this platform.
What is TCP fingerprints?
There is one thing that your software cannot control and it's TCP fingerprints. Those are set of characteristics of your IP address that remote server can recognize. Most important of them are MTU and OS fingerprint. Based on these two values, IG (or any other website) can detect whether you use data center, residential, or mobile IPs.
For all of our proxies we have proper fingerprints that clearly say that it's a mobile device on Android.
Please, adjust your software accordingly. If your TCP fingerprints says that it's an Android but your User-Agent says that it's a Windows 7, it could be suspicious for a social network. It's much better when you keep all your fingerprints in a consistent way.
Why does my proxy on Shared/Private service plan not work?
It's important to resolve DNS on proxy side when you are on Shared or Private Service plan. If you resolve it locally, then you won't be able to open any website. For example, when you use SOCKS5 you should use socks5h:// instead of socks5://.
How many accounts per port I can run for IG / Twitter / YouTube / etc?
Very frequent question, but unfortunately there is no the only answer to it. Number of accounts is based on your software, settings and account quality. Next thing is how good is your IP address.
On a private port you are the only person using this social network, so you can experiment with different settings and find your perfect most optimized values for follows, likes and other actions. Usually our clients run up to 30-35 accounts per private port with no issues.
Please, keep in mind that to be able to reach maximum amount of accounts per port, you have to be an advanced user. You have to warm up your accounts, increase amount of actions steadily, have well trusted aged accounts and other nuances. If you aren't sure about what you're doing, try to keep the number lower for better results. Usually it's more than safe to run 10-15 accounts per private port.
On a shared port this number can fluctuate a lot. Today you may have 20 accounts working fine, tomorrow you may have performance issues running just 5 accounts. It all depends on your neighbours on the port at specific point in time. Today you may have 5 people slowly running IG actions, tomorrow there may be 3 people running same actions extremely active. You never know.
What kind of software your proxies work with?
We provide HTTP proxy with user/login authentication. It works with all widespread or custom software you may find nowadays. We don't usually use authentication by IP but we can add it to your account by request, just contact us.
I try to use it with my software and it doesn't work. Why?
Some software check proxies by making a request to some server. Usually on our ports you are locked to some specific service (say, IG), that means that all requests to other servers will be rejected.
You need to make sure that you specify correct URL for proxy verification in your software. For example, in Jarvee or Mass Planner you may see "bing.com" as a default server to test proxy. But it won't work if your port has allowed access only to Instagram.
You will have to change this setting to "instagram.com" and then it will show it alive. Here is the screenshot.
How to avoid email verification (EV), phone verification (PV) and bans?
Every time you start using new proxy, always have some warm-up phase.
Use smaller amount of actions, see how social network treats you. Increase amount of actions steadily and step by step.
Same idea with amount of accounts. Do not start new proxy with large amount of accounts, begin with 1-2 accounts and add more accounts every 12/24 hours.
What country should I choose for a mobile proxy?
It depends. Most important thing is to make it consistent for each account. If you run an account for a client with business in US, then you should use US proxies, because Russian proxy will look less natural.
Usually proxies from Asia, Russia, Ukraine are cheaper and it makes it more affordable. Some people have theories that social networks may treat it with less amount of trust. But at the same time, there are millions of real people using social networks from same IPs because they have same carrier.
Conclusion: try to be consistent with account country, don't change it frequently.
I need a proxy to work with a website different than IG, Twitter and others.
Please, contact us. We can add any website to your port, let's discuss it.
Can you provide an invoice?
Yes, we can provide invoice for any payment. We run business fully legally and pay taxes on each transaction.
When will I get my proxy after the payment?

You will get an email once your proxy is ready. Your proxy will be displayed on your ports page.
Your time will start ticking only after we issue a proxy for your account.
