    I have been using proxies for a while now with Scrapebox.

    I wonder if I can stop subscription and switch to some VPN with 1000+ IPs instead.

    Can I then stop scraping proxies in Scrapebox and use VPN for both harvesting and posting?


    What about mass mailing? Does VPN save me from transparency of my laptop IP?

    In which case proxies are better than VPN, if any?

    VPN is good for overall work but if you want for SB,you should choose Private proxy.Because VPN proxy is also spam also.....

    Does HideMyAss VPN requires any soft installations?

    I use HMA too and I like it... depending on what I'm doing I usually set my ip to change every 15-30 minutes.
