    I have private proxies. Not shared private proxies.

    I am the only one using it and only use it for social media. But google today say that I have unusual activities on some of my proxies. I believe that someone else are using them too. It never said that before.

    How can I know if my private proxies are shared or not. I don't think the seller will tell me the truth.

    Check the speed of the proxy if it's higher than 1000kbps then it must be a private proxy meanwhile if you have done nothing (for example things like Google scraping or fast repeated manual searches) then it may be due to the fact it's a shared proxy.

    That is serious nonsense advice. A proxy could easily much more speed than that and still be shared. It has literally nothing to do with being shared/private.
    The speed of a proxy is determined by server load and the network. A private proxy on the same server will most likely be just as fast as a shared one.
