Using Web Stealth Proxy

Making requests with Web Stealth Proxy is easy, especially if you have previously used regular proxies for web scraping. Please note that you will have to disable the SSL certificates verification (-k switch in cURL, verify=false in Python etc.)

Web Stealth Proxy is available via:


Your Web Stealth Proxy credentials are stored in the Start Here section of the Web Stealth Proxy service page.


Here’s an example of a simple request using cURL:

curl -k -x "" \


-X GET ""

You don’t have to specify any parameters. Our system will add all standard headers, select the fastest proxy and deliver the response to you. To use more advanced features, such as choosing a specific proxy location or using the same IP for multiple requests, you can include additional headers in your request.

You can find more code samples in our documentation.

Geo-location settings

Web Stealth Proxy allows you to send the request from different countries, by passing the X-WSA-Geo-Location header to your request.

Here is how you can send a request from an IP address located in Germany:

curl -k -x "" \


-X GET "" \

--header "X-WSA-Geo-Location: de"

Here you can find the complete list of all the supported geo-locations.

Session control

You can create and use a new session in order to scrape multiple pages of the same website and reuse the same proxy (IP Address) for each request. To use the same IP, simply add the X-WSA-Session-ID header with any integer value of your choice. The value will be used to identify the new session created by you:

curl -k -x "" \


-X GET "" \

--header "X-WSA-Session: 1234"

Your sessions will expire 5 minutes after the last usage.

More code samples in other languages can be found here.

Custom headers

Custom HTTP headers are useful when you want to provide additional information to your request. If your request requires passing custom HTTP headers, all you have to do is to append WSA- to your header's name and add them to your request:

curl -k -x "" \


-X GET "" \

--header "WSA-random-header: random" \

--header "WSA-User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64)"

Follow this link to find code examples in other languages.

Custom cookies

You can also set custom cookies for the target website. Custom cookies are treated just as custom headers. In order to add your own cookie to the request, simply pass the name and value to the WSA-Cookie custom header when you send your request:

curl -k -x "" \


-X GET "" \

--header "WSA-Cookie: SID=abcd"

More code examples in different languages can be found here.

JavaScript Rendering and Screenshots

Web Stealth Proxy uses headless browsers to render the complete contents of any web page and return you the resulting HTML. Add the X-WSA-Render: screenshot to receive a screenshot of the page. The request will return a JSON object containing the base64 encrypted image:

curl -k -x "" \


-X GET "" \

--header "X-WSA-Render: screenshot"

POST requests

Do you need to send some data to the targeted website? Web Stealth Proxy supports both POST and PUT requests.

curl -k -x ""\


-X POST "" \

--data '{"foo":"bar"}'

You can find more code samples for different programming languages here.

Usage and Statistics

You can view your credit usage at any time by visiting the Statistics section of the Web Stealth Proxy service page:


You will be charged with only 1 credit per successful request. A request is considered successful if it returns a 200 status code.


Web Stealth Proxy is ideal for web scraping tasks. Instead of manually handling CAPTCHAs, blocks, and other restrictions, Web Stealth Proxy takes care of the unblocking process for you with a high success rate (usually 100%).
