IP Address Authentication
Make sure you've authenticated your own current IP address to the proxy of your choice on your dashboard. For details, see Authenticated IPs & Hostnames in "Dashboard Tour & How-To.".
Are you blocked because of too many failed login attempts? Failed attempts may be due to incorrect user credentials. Too many failed logins can look like a brute force attack. The ProxyMesh website is protected with a firewall, which can prevent you from logging in if you have too many failures.
Temporary bans may be indicated by a message from ProxyMesh's Sucuri Web Application Firewall that looks like this:
Risky Behavior Warnings
Risky Behavior warnings (
Risky Behavior Detected) can be caused by any of the following login attempts:
Using a VPN
Are you connecting to a VPN before logging into your ProxyMesh account? If so, please disconnect from your VPN before attempting to log into your ProxyMesh account. Once you have deactivated your VPN, you may need to reboot your computer, especially if you are using a MAC.
Using Another Proxy Service
Are you connected to another proxy service while trying to log into your ProxyMesh account? If so, please disconnect from the other proxy service before logging in. Once you have deactivated the other proxy service, you may need to reboot your computer, especially if you are using a MAC.
Many User Agents in a Short Time
Did your IP access proxymesh.com with several different user agents in a short period of time? To the system, this may look like bad bot behavior.
Using a Server Instead of a Browser
Are you using a server to log into your ProxyMesh account? If so, please use your browser to log in instead.
Using a Public Wi-Fi
We do not recommend using a public Wi-Fi to sign up for a ProxyMesh account, or to log in, as it can trigger Risky Behavior warnings.
You could be trying to login through a blocked IP address. If you suspect this is true, you should contact your Internet Service Provider – or the blocking party itself – with any questions about blocking and the health and reputation of the IP address.
Using Incorrect Credentials
Could you be using an incorrect username or password when attempting to log in? Please check to be sure you’re using the ones you designated for your ProxyMesh account, and try logging in again. You may also have to reset your password.
Using an Incorrect Email
Could you be using an incorrect email? Please make sure you are using the email address that you entered into the ProxyMesh billing information.

Updating Your Payment Account
Are you trying to update your payment information, and have you made frequent attempts to do so in a brief period of time? A temporary 4-6 hour ban may result from multiple attempts to log in. You will need to wait until the ban is lifted before attempting to log in again.

How Are You Using Your ProxyMesh Account?
The way you are using your ProxyMesh account may cause your account to be deactivated if the system observes a fraud context. If this occurs, please contact Support. For one example where a fraud interpretation may occur, see Setting Up Your Subscription Payment Method.
Cookies and Cache Clearing
In addition to the above solutions, if you have received a Risky Behavior warning, you will need to clear all cookies and your cache before attempting to log in again.
Logging in with Your Smartphone
You can try logging in with your smartphone (with the Wi-Fi turned Off and mobile data turned On).
Logging in from a Different Browser
If you are unable to log in with your current browser, we recommend trying a different browser.
If you have tried all of these solutions, but are still experiencing login issues, please contact Support.
