    Hi,

    I'm about to get into some scraping and just wanted to discuss with others what you're doing to scrape and stealth yourselves up.

    So what's the best way to scrape without being seen?

    VPS -> VPN -> Proxy
    VPS -> VPN -> Proxy Chain (chain of proxies)
    VPS -> VPN Chain (chain of vpns)
    VPS -> VPN Chain -> Proxy Chain


    Here's an example of chaining VPNs - (bhw wont let me post the link to it, so its the 1st google result for the search "Chain VPNs for Complete Anonymity")


    In the case of a VPN chain, is it possible to use free vpn services and keep stealth by chaining them? The article above seems to indicate that. So stealth could be achieved by using a mix of free VPN chains and free Proxy chains? Or is it necessary to go with paid services, that guarantee they don't save user logs?

    Also, if I use beautifulsoup library in python, is it possible to spoof different browsers and thereby get around browser fingerprinting methods?

    I am not sure what you are trying to scrape, why do you need such a high level of anonymity? A single proxy is enough, but if you really must, then you could use your vps, install a vpn on it, add a proxy and get going.
