Zoosk is an online dating platform where users are given a simple way to find their perfect match. It has over 40 million users worldwide as it is available in 80 countries and in 25 different languages. Zoosk personalizes your dating experience to help you find the perfect person and relationship for you.
As previously mentioned, Zoosk is only available in 80 countries so if you live in a country that cannot access Zoosk, you need to change your IP address to a country that does have access to Zoosk. This can be done through the help of a Zoosk proxy but you can’t simply use any kind of proxy. You need to use residential proxies as these types of proxy use residential IPs from actual devices making you seem like a genuine user from any location you chose.
Another great use of a Zoosk proxy is when you want to create multiple accounts on Zoosk, whether it be for reaching more people or advertising and marketing. Zoosk limits the number of accounts a single IP can create and ban any accounts that exceed that limitation. To bypass this, you need to rotate your proxies so that every time you create a new account, it would have a different IP address attached to it and thus, would not be banned.
Let’s set up a Zoosk proxy server.
Note: Make sure that the web browser you’re using for Zoosk is set to automatically copy your computer’s proxy settings. Google Chrome automatically does this, so it’s recommended to use it.
To set up proxies in Windows, simply search for “Proxy Settings” in your windows search bar and open the search result.
You are then given two options to choose from: Automatic proxy setup or Manual proxy setup. If you want windows to automatically detect your proxy settings, choose the first option. Choose the second option if you want to utilize a specific ip address and port number.
If you chose the first option, then:
- Turn on Automatically detect Settings
- Turn on Use setup script
- Enter the script address
- Click Save
If you chose the second option, then:
- Turn on Use a proxy server
- Input both server address and port number
- If you have any addresses you would like to visit without a proxy, enter them here
- Turn on Don’t use the proxy server for local addresses check box if you want to access a local server without a proxy
- Click Save
To start configuring your proxy settings in MacOS, simply:
Step 1. Click on the Apple Icon.
Step 2. On the drop down menu, click on “System Preferences”.
Step 3. Click on “Network”
Step 4. Click on “Advanced”
Note: Make sure to connect to your wi-fi first.
Step 5. Click on “Proxies”
This should then redirect you to MacOS proxy settings. MacOS is more straightforward compared to windows. You only have one option which is to manually configure your proxy server.
Here are the steps to follow:
- Select which proxy IP protocol you want to configure. This depends on which protocols your proxy service provider offers.
- Turn on Secure Web Proxy
- Input the Proxy Server Address and Port Number
- Click OK to save the configurations
Note: You may be prompted for your Mac user password to save your settings.
