If you're attempting to use Zyte Smart Proxy Manager(formerly Crawlera) to avoid getting blocked, the website will still be able to track you (with the user details you used to log in) and Smart Proxy Manager won't help much.


Using Smart Proxy Manager to avoid region restrictions (ie. crawl from specific locations/countries) is a valid use case. If this is your case, you should use Smart Proxy Manager sessions.
