    I always test them with many tools including scrapebox, but I can't even find a single working public proxy anymore for search engines or social media sites, why? How to find fresh public proxies?

    tested public proxies get posted here daily in multiple threads by guys who run paid proxy services, do you check those too? or you can find thousands of them on google every day which were tested and worked at the time of the test, maybe not for specific needs though

    i only use free public proxies for social media acc creation when i need them by the hundreds, for spam accs and never for managing the accs or any other task, because they're unreliable, abused to hell for the most part

    unless you don't need a lot from them, maybe you should consider purchasing a few private proxies instead of being on a constant hunt for a few public proxies which may work when you test them, but not in the next moment, you can spare yourself time and a lot of headaches -> you can be more productive, free stuff is not always the cheapest

    isnt trying hard enough, unless hes referring using them in scrapebox
    then there arnt that many that can be scraped, but if hes just referring to live public proxies
    there are at least 2-3k live out there all the time

    did a quick port scan tested in scrapebox no issues there

    also did a quick proxy scrape and tested in bleach then scrapebox
    still got a few, which is to expected from scraped proxies.

    simple fact is with so many people scraping public proxies, u will always get plenty alive
    but the days when u scraped alot that worked in s/box - gscraper are gone.
    you either need to sub to some1 port scanning public proxies
    or buy private proxies
