oxylabs logo Oxylabs launched in 2015 and has since become one of the most popular web intelligence platforms available today. Oxylabs provides a proxy server network and web scraping tools that allow businesses to collect online public data at scale. It offers a variety of proxy types and scraping tools to suit practically every business use case.
In this Oxylabs review, we’ll go over all of the above and more, including pricing and reliability. I recommend reading the full review if you have the time and would like the full details. If not, you can read my summary below.

Oxylabs review summary

Oxylabs is a top-tier web scraping proxy service provider that offers an impressive host of proxy services and web scraping tools. Mobile proxies, residential proxies, and ISP proxies are all available. The proxies and tools can be customized to suit your use case. The service provides its users with a comprehensive dashboard to set up, manage, and deploy their proxies, which is efficient and useful but also somewhat limited.

Because Oxylabs’ dashboard is limited in functionality, you really have to know what you’re doing to get the most out of your subscription, as the bulk of your scraping activities will occur in third-party software or a terminal window. New users may be somewhat intimidated by Oxylabs’ approach. Oxylabs also costs more than other web scraping providers.

Still, if you’re looking for a comprehensive web scraping solution that you can easily adapt to your business case (as long as you know what you’re doing), Oxylabs will serve you well. It is recommended.

Oxylabs pros and cons


  • Comprehensive web scraping solution
  • Massive number of IPs available
  • Highly customizable service
  • Excellent web scraping toolset
  • Great support


  • The dashboard could provide more features

Let’s start by looking at what Oxylabs offers.

Residential proxies

OxyLabs - Residential Proxies
With a pool of more than 100 million IP addresses, Oxylabs’ residential proxies provide worldwide coverage, making it easy to bypass geo-location blocks. You can choose between the HTTP, HTTPS, or SOCKS5 protocol. Oxylabs’ residential proxies can be integrated with various popular third-party software, namely Selenium, Puppeteer, and Playwright. You can choose a location based on continent, country, state, city, or zip code. If that isn’t enough, you can also select a location based on coordinates and even by ASN. You’ll be able to collect all of your web data as if you were in the chosen physical location while masking your original IP address.

Oxylabs recommends residential proxies for:

  • Review monitoring
  • Ad verification
  • Cybersecurity
  • Travel fare aggregation

Mobile proxies

OxyLabs - Mobile Proxies
When using a mobile proxy, your internet traffic is routed through a mobile network connection. With more than 20M cell phone carrier IP addresses from over 140 countries, you can reach smartphones or tablets in your target location. Using a mobile proxy allows you to masquerade as a mobile user over 3G/4G/5G/LTE networks.

Oxylabs’ mobile proxies boast an impressive 99.9% uptime with a 1.1-second response time. With mobile proxies, you can choose a location by country, state, city, coordinates, or ASN.

Mobile proxies are optimized for:

  • Ad verification
  • Review monitoring
  • Mobile app user experience

Rotating ISP proxies

OxyLabs - Rotating ISP Proxies
Hosted in data centers, Oxylabs’ rotating residential ISP proxies are fast and use authentic IP addresses sourced by authorized internet service providers. Because of this, the sites you’re looking to scrape should not be able to distinguish you from genuine users. Because the addresses are continually rotated, ISP proxies make your scraping activities much harder to detect.

Oxylabs provides residential ISP proxies from over 20 locations, including the United States, Great Britain, and Canada.

ISP proxies are best suited for:

  • Web data extraction
  • Marketing on social media
  • Ad placement/management
  • Website testing
  • Travel fare aggregation

Web unlocker

OxyLabs - Web Unlocker
Oxylabs’ Web Unblocker uses AI to masquerade as a regular user, allowing you to access public data even from sites using the most stringent anti-bot systems. Web Unlocker mimics genuine human activity, setting the correct headers, cookies, JavaScript rendering, and other browser parameters. If your scraping request fails, Oxylabs automatically selects another combination of parameters and sends another request.

You can select your location by country, city, or coordinates from over 102 million proxies from 195 countries. Another nice thing about Oxylabs’ Web Unlocker is that you only pay for successfully gathered data – not your failed attempts.

Web Unlocker supports the following features:

  • Worldwide geo-targeting by country, city, or coordinates
  • Automated unblocking
  • CAPTCHA bypass
  • JavaScript rendering
  • Full proxy management
  • Advanced browser fingerprinting
  • Auto-retry

Shared Datacenter Proxies

OxyLabs - Shared Data Center Proxies
Shared Data Center proxies are just that: your traffic is proxied over data center IP addresses that are shared between multiple Oxylabs users. Its shared data center proxies are automatically rotated within a pool of 22 000 shared proxy IP addresses from the US, Europe, and Asia. The shared data center proxies plan also supports unlimited concurrent connections.

Oxylabs’ shared data center proxies can be automated using third-party software (Selenium, Puppeteer, Playwright, and more).

The most common use cases for shared data center proxies are:

  • Price monitoring
  • Market research
  • Review monitoring
  • Website change monitoring
  • Scanning public databases

Dedicated Datacenter Proxies

OxyLabs - Dedicated Data Center Proxies
Oxylabs’ dedicated data center proxies are like the above, but you get your own dedicated proxy servers instead of sharing your proxy with other users. This plan provides you with a pool of over 2M proxies from 188 countries. Also, contrary to the above plan, dedicated data center proxies support both IPv4 and IPv6, expanding your scraping capabilities.

This plan includes free city or state targeting, unlimited bandwidth, and an optional proxy rotation feature that changes your IP address with every outgoing request.

Oxylabs markets its dedicated data center proxies towards:

  • Market research
  • Brand protection
  • Email protection
  • Cybersecurity testing
  • Competitive and marketing intelligence

Static Residential Proxies

OxyLabs - Static Residential PRoxies
Static residential proxies are sourced from data centers, ensuring top speeds. Using static residential proxies, you appear to be a regular user as you browse the web. That enables you to collect public data from the most challenging websites. These proxies are optimized for high-speed data gathering.

Oxylabs provides over 100,000 static IPs that are officially assigned by ISPs. As with rotating residential proxies, static residential proxies support the HTTP, HTTPS, and SOCKS5 protocols with an average uptime of 99.9%.

This subscription includes unlimited bandwidth and an unlimited number of targets. You’re only charged for the number of IP addresses used, not the number of requests.

Oxylabs recommends dedicated residential proxies for:

  • Competitive and marketing intelligence
  • Brand protection
  • Digital asset protection
  • Scanning public databases
  • Accessing websites that use sophisticated blocking systems

SERP Scraper API

OxyLabs - SERP Scraper API
Oxylabs SERP Scraper API enables you to collect search results from:

  • Google
  • Bing
  • Baidu
  • Yandex

The Scraper makes it easy to collect search results, whether images, videos, ads, maps, etc. It allows you to scrape pretty much any search element you can think of, including:

  • Featured snippet
  • Local pack
  • Knowledge graph
  • Item carousel
  • Top stories
  • Popular products
  • Related searches
  • See more section

You can access search results from 195 countries using the SERP Scraper API. It supports country, state, city, and coordinates-based targeting, and you only pay for successfully delivered results.

E-commerce Scraper API

OxyLabs - E-commerce Scraper API
The E-commerce Scraper API is similar to the above but optimized for online marketplaces. It enables you to scrape e-commerce data from various page types, including search and product pages, in HTML or JSON format. It supports the top 50 e-commerce marketplaces / standalone shops, including:

  • Amazon
  • Walmart
  • Google Shopping
  • Best Buy
  • eBay
  • Etsy
  • Home Depot
  • Lowe’s
  • Target
  • Wayfair

The E-commerce Scraper API allows you to gather highly localized product data from 195 countries, which you can target by country or postal code. The results are rendered as high-quality structured data in JSON format.

As with the SERP API Scraper, you only pay for successfully delivered results.

Web Scraper API

OxyLabs - Web Scraper API
The Web Scraper API is designed for more generalist and large-volume data collection. Out-of-the-box, it’s pre-configured with scrapers for many of the most popular websites. The Web Scraper API uses Oxylabs’ AI-powered web data collection infrastructure, which will take care of everything behind the scenes, from finding the best proxy network to customizing headers, fingerprinting, and CAPTCHAs. All you have to do is send your request; Oxylabs takes care of the rest.

Data Sets

OxyLabs - Data Sets
Not everyone wants to invest the effort or money in web scraping. Oxylabs maintains a few commonly requested data sets that can be bought directly. If you don’t want to get into proxy management and scraping, you can probably find what you need in its bank of pre-built data sets.

The user interface

OxyLabs - UI
Oxylabs provides its users with a centralized web UI. From the UI, you can manage your subscriptions, proxies, tools, and data sets. It’s really just a management UI; the actual scraping happens using your terminal, Postman, or your automation software (Selenium, Puppeteer, Playwright, etc.).

That can be seen as both a blessing and a curse. Because you must do most of your work outside the UI, it keeps the dashboard clean, lean, and straightforward. However, the learning curve will be a bit steeper because of that. You need to know what you’re doing to use Oxylabs’ service adequately. Some of its competitors allow you to do more than manage your services in the web UI.

Chrome extension & Android app

Another way to manage your proxies is to install Oxylabs’ Chrome extension or Android app. Both are free.

OxyLabs - Chrome Extension
The Chrome extension Oxy Proxy allows you to add and switch proxies and connect to the selected proxy server. It doesn’t just work with Oxylabs proxies; you can use the extension to manage any and all your web proxies from any provider.

OxyLabs - Android App
The Android Oxy Proxy Manager app can be downloaded from the Google Play store. Like the Chrome extension, it allows you to manage and connect to your proxies. It also supports proxy servers from any provider and for any purpose.

Customer support

Regarding customer support, each product page in the dashboard includes an Information tab, which includes a Getting Started video for that product, a link to its documentation, and a button to access its chatbot, access more support resources, or schedule a meeting with Oxylabs.

OxyLabs - Support - General

OxyLabs - Support - Chat
You also have a direct link to your assigned account manager. Clicking the link lets you email your account manager or start a chat session.

OxyLabs - Account Manager
And my account manager even emailed me directly to ask if they could assist me with anything after signing-up, along with helpful links to various support resources. Well done.

Do I recommend Oxylabs?

I do. Oxylabs is an excellent proxy/web scraping service that provides an extensive range of options and features. Regardless of your specific scraping requirements, Oxylabs’ service will very likely cater to them. It covered its bases with its wide range of proxy types.

We’ve previously mentioned that this service was on the more expensive side. However, it recently cut its prices while providing the same excellent results, so I’ll leave it to you (and your use cases) to decide whether or not it’s worth trying out.

The service also provides good customer support options, assigning a dedicated account manager to each user. And even if you don’t need to speak directly with your account manager, Oxylabs’ other support options (chat, knowledge base, documentation) should help you.

All in all, Oxylabs is recommended, though improvements to its dashboard would go a long way towards cementing it as a top contender.
