What is Proxy for?
You should know that LinkedIn does not endorse when you manage someone else's account, no matter with or without automation tools: LinkedIn User Agreement
Proxy is used to change the IP address from which a LinkedIn account is being accessed. It is not needed if you are planning to run only your LinkedIn account.
Basically, proxies for LinkedIn accounts are used in two cases:
- You manage someone's LinkedIn account. You can set up a proxy for that account with the same location as the owner of that account.
- You manage several LinkedIn accounts on one machine. In this case, you can set up an individual unique proxy for each account so they are being accessed from different IP addresses and LinkedIn won't catch you with managing multiple LinkedIn accounts.
Please, find more info about managing multiple LinkedIn accounts here.
What proxy do I need?
Linked Helper supports HTTP / HTTPS IPv4 proxy. There are no particular recommendations on proxy service providers. You must buy a private, not shared proxy. We use proxies bought here: https://proxy6.net/en/e/164120 (IPv6 proxies from this provider works in Linked Helper because IPv6 is implemented there as a tunnel from IPv4 to IPv6 - What IPv6 proxies look like?).
However, choosing this exact provider isn`t mandatory and we cannot guarantee its stability as this is a third party company. You can find another company or use the one you personally prefer.
