Browsing a website usually allows that website to collect and keep data about your visit: your IP address and location, for instance. The proxy’s job is to make sure the website collects the proxy's data instead of yours. They are a perfect solution for those who value their digital privacy.

For Apify Actor runs you can use residential or datacenter proxies, as well as SERP proxies specifically for scraping Google Search results.
