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. Please, check this article for more info: What is Proxy for?
You can learn more about managing several LinkedIn accounts here.
Add a proxy to Linked Helper
There are no particular recommendations on where to buy proxy. We recommend using private ones to ensure there won't be any issues with logouts.
Linked Helper supports HTTP / HTTPS IPv4 proxy. We use proxies bought here: proxy6.net (IPv6 proxies from this provider works in Linked Helper as well 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.
You need to navigate to "Proxies" and click "Add new"
Let's imagine that your proxy is 14.45.346.234:8000 for example. You need to insert 14.45.346.234 in the "Ip/hostname" field and 8000 in the "Port" field, enter your proxy login and password if you have, and click "Test and save":
After that, Linked Helper tests your proxy and if it's working well, this message will be shown:
If there is any issue with the proxy, an error message will be shown and you won't be able to save the proxy that does not work:
Assign a proxy to a LinkedIn account
- Navigate to the Proxies section in the Launcher menu.
- Choose the proxy.
- Click on Assign to LinkedIn accounts button.
- Choose an instance from the list.
- Click Assign button.
You can assign one proxy to multiple accounts, but we do not recommend doing that as it may be dangerous for your account.
Edit already added proxy
- Choose proxy.
- Click Edit button.
- Change settings and click Test and save button:
If there is any issue with the proxy, an error message will be shown and you won't be able to apply the changes to the proxy.
If you do not need your proxy anymore, you can archive it. Select your proxy and press "Archive".
Archived proxies can still be used by LinkedIn accounts, but you'll be able to see them only by using the "Archived" or "Any" filters.
Check whether the proxy is working or not
Linked Helper has a built-in function to test the proxy. When you choose a proxy and click the Test connection button, Linked Helper tries to open the LinkedIn login web page to check whether it can be loaded without any issue.
If you are experiencing network errors while using proxy servers, then you should know that most of the time it's not a Linked Helper 2 fault. You can use proxy6.net web site or any other web site to check if your proxy server is working. Please, follow these steps:
- Open https://proxy6.net/en/checker
- Insert your proxy credentials:
For example, if your proxy is 14.45.346.234, the port is 8000. Your login is qwer and password zxcv, then you need no type it in like that:
- Click "Check proxy"
- Then, scroll down a little and see the results of your test. If your proxy is working, it should look like this:
- If your proxy is working, please try to access LinkedIn with your regular web browser to make sure that LinkedIn can be accessed with your proxy server.
