A Simple Guide to Block VPN or Proxy IP

Many organizations block VPN or Proxy IP addresses from accessing websites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. If you want to block VPN or Proxy IP addresses access to your website, All you need is just use API of ProxyRadar.io

But First, Learn the Difference Between the Proxy and VPN

The terms "proxy" and "VPN" are two different things. Unlike a proxy, which is solely accessible by the program, a VPN protects all traffic. Both VPNs are encrypted, but only one hides your IP address. VPNs redirect your internet traffic through an encrypted tunnel. You can browse the web safely and securely with a proxy, but it's not as secure as a VPN.

Use Firewall:

A firewall is another tool you can use to manage port access.

Typically, proxies will try to connect to their servers using port 80 or 443. Some programs offer the option to use alternative ports if this fails.

Block via Cloudflare:
