# Introduction


Proxy Backconnect is deprecated. Make the smart switch to Smart Proxy for speedier, stealthier browsing and AI-driven ban avoidance.

Proxy Backconnect will let you use our entire IP pool through a single address, which means you do not need a separate proxy list.

To connect to the Proxy Backconnect you must use the host and port, please check the connection details here (opens new window).

If you need to manage the Proxy Backconnect using an API to utilize all of its features, you are in the right place.

We've created an API which will make managing your Proxy Backconnect access very easy (not to confuse with the Crawling API).

  • Requests to Proxy Backconnect API start with the following base part: https://api.crawlbase.com/proxy
  • All the requests to the Proxy API require to send the token parameter using your private token ?token=_USER_TOKEN_
  • Please note that this API is to manage the Proxy Backconnect and not to actually use it. For usage of the Proxy Backconnect head here (opens new window).
