- Use Cases
A proxy is a great alternative to VPNs and HTTP proxies that protects the traffic within a specific source - for example application, browser, or other platform. ZoogVPN operates with SOCKS5 Proxy, which is the newest version of SOCKS - an internet protocol that routes your traffic through a remote server. While you are connected to a server with this technology, it changes your IP address and funnels all data packets through a proxy server which passes information to the destination afterwards. Compared to other proxies, SOCKS5 offers great safety features and authentication that removes a lot of security concerns. The main advantage of SOCKS5 is speed. SOCKS5 proxy is really fast and reliable because it transfers smaller data packets. That's why it usually offers high download speeds and lots of users configure SOCKS5 to various P2P file sharing websites and platforms.
When it comes to a Virtual Private Network (VPN), the main goal is to encrypt your traffic and ensure a complete privacy online. As most proxies, SOCKS5 doesn't encrypt your data. Also, it doesn't change data packets headers that might contain your personal information and can be easily tracked down. That said, it's easier to identify SOCKS5 proxy usage, therefore this technology isn't a great choice if you need to bypass sophisticated firewalls. Even though it automatically improves overall performance and has a lower chance of errors, SOCKS does lack of privacy and security features compared to a VPN. We recommend going with SOCKS5 if you want to achieve the best speeds possible. If you are mainly concerned about protecting your data with bank-grade encryption, then choose a VPN.
Today SOCKS5 Proxy is definitely a better solution than most HTTP proxies. First of all, SOCKS5 is a lower level proxy that can handle any kind of traffic. It makes SOCKS5 a wide-spread tool that can work with different request types including HTTP, HTTPS, POP3, SMTP, and FTP. HTTP proxies work only to retrieve information via a web browser while SOCKS5 can handle any program or protocol without limits. From a security point of view, SOCKS5 is also better as there are low chances of your data being revealed. Still, there might be some problems connecting SOCKS5 to different tools compatible only with classic proxies. It should be able to connect with the tools you generally use, but it makes sense to double-check it before.
While SOCKS5 Proxies don't provide the level of security you would get from a regular VPN, they have their benefits and many users around the world prefer proxies to VPN services. Proxies can be used for following:
• Hiding your real IP address
• Using proxies for torrenting However, we don't recommend doing it with proxies as they don't hide your real identity and you could face DMCA notices in some countries
• Access streaming websites and apps for streaming audio and video content
• Unblocking social media apps and websites
It's super easy to setup SOCKS5 Proxy with ZoogVPN. It can be configured on any supported app, including Telegram, uTorrent, BitTorrent, Vuze, Skype, and various browsers such as Firefox or Chrome.
Complete the simple registration process by this link.
Open the respective settings of the app where you want to connect proxy. Use TCP/1080 port, select "SOCKS5" proxy type, and enter the address of ZoogVPN server compatible with SOCKS5 proxy (you can find them here).
Use your ZoogVPN login and password for the authentication and connect. That simple 🙂
SOCKS5 Proxy can easily help you bypass geo-restrictions, specifically when a certain IP address is blacklisted by a service or an ISP.
Thanks to the support of UDP and TCP protocols, fast and stable browsing is where SOCKS5 really shines. It also allows fewer errors while transferring data between device and server.
SOCKS5 is superior to other proxies when it comes to speeds of p2p operations because it transfers smaller data packets, making it a good choice for torrenting.
When using SOCKS5 proxy, we give you an anonymous IP address, so you can browse privately and fast.
With ZoogVPN Proxy solution, you will be able to access censored content, bypass geo restrictions, and use app blocked in your country.
It's easy as 1,2,3 to use uTorrent, BitTorrent and other apps with our proxy and P2P-friendly network.
Free Proxy servers often have some hidden drawbacks that you may not even know about. The free providers lure clients by giving their customers a free proxy server, but in exchange, they end up collecting their data and personal information and selling it to advertisers and other companies. Besides, free Proxies may contain malware and viruses. If you value your privacy and security, we suggest you avoid such options. Browser proxies always come with hidden drawbacks.

Iam Using Zoogvpn Since 2018,Its a Very Good VPN has Many Servers to Choose From,I Have Not Faced Any Problems till date.Online Customer Care is Always Available For Suggestions and Any Troubleshooting. Its the Only Few VPN Working in UAE. i strongly recommend
To my mind the service is underrated
To my mind the service is underrated. It does all the same as more expensive services. Besides it has their own server in Russia, that is a very rare case nowadays. It gives you the possibility to stream content from Russia and watch some Russian TV channels and listen to music for free. The customer support is responsive and friendly.
Glad and happy with perfect VPN
I’m honestly more than happy using this perfect VPN, It’s working better than many I’ve tried, even though in the country which I’m leaving the most of VPN providers are blocked and unable to bypass restrictions but ZoogVPN do bypass them with perfect speed. The sales team are pretty kind and support team is doing there best to assist in what ever issues you may face. It’s fast, stable and company which you can trust for your security. Highly recommend.
I would like to revise my negative review
from a few weeks back to a positive one. ZogVPN have constantly been in touch with me about their efforts in providing the service I signed up too. All is back in working order and they are doing a great job keeping and maintaining their service to a very high Standard.Thank you once again and keep up the good work. I really am very impressed. Not an easy one but well worth the effort. Job well done.
Check a detailed setup tutorial by this link and get started with SOCKS5 proxy within minutes.
SOCKS5 routes packets between a user and a server, meaning your real IP address is hidden and instead you access the internet with an IP address provided by a Proxy provider,
Overall, VPN is a much better and safer option. It makes sense to sacrifice a bit of connection speed in order to have more privacy and security. However, if you prioritize speed, SOCKS5 is a solid choice.
