Sample Report: Proxy

The proxy report allows you to see if your traffic uses various proxy solutions to hide their origin. The use of a proxy can also indicate non-human traffic. Analyzing proxy traffic may also help you to be compliant with various affiliate networks' regulations, as some of them can withhold a payout if proxy traffic has been detected.
