It is highly recommended to use proxies with TexAu. In this guide we will see what is proxy and which proxy is best for TexAu Spices.

TexAu platform is a growth automation company and proxies are really important for many Spices (Automation Scripts) to work properly and keep user accounts safe.

Let's see how websites track user logins and checks for suspicious activity.

What is a proxy?

In simple terms proxies are used to hide the actual server location and make server feel like it's you who is trying to access the platform not a server which is trying to run the automation as you.

Why do you need a proxy?

Security is very critical for any website and for most social websites, it is the most critical part. Websites keep track of user logins, locations, IP-address, timestamp of each login, the total duration of each session and your activity on the website. If the website finds irregular login patterns from a different location, they start giving warnings and if the activities continue, it may lead to suspension of the account.

Facebook has taken some potential measure after US Jurisdictions and it's now extremely closely observing user logins and IP-address(es)' geographical origins. We highly recommend using proxies while working with Facebook Spices.

How TexAu works?

TexAu uses cookies to authenticate to websites for each user. Our servers are based in Eastern USA so when we log in as you (the user) to any website using your cookies, our server IP address gets logged on the website. So if you're residing in Mumbai and use TexAu to extract data from Facebook, Facebook will see that you're logging in from two different locations back and forth. You are using Facebook App in your cellphone in Mumbai and TexAu servers are trying to authenticate from IP-address in the eastern USA. This is definitely suspicious for the systems and it will trigger warning messages or Facebook may even suspend your account.

Proxies are very helpful to avoid this situation. Proxy service provides you IP-addresses from your geographical area and using proxy TexAu systems will authenticate from your nearest location, this will prevent security warnings and account suspensions.

TexAu supports Luminati, ProxyMesh, WonderProxy and any other proxy provider which provides URL, port, username and password.
