With a refreshed look, comes a better infrastructure to support faster, better proxy management and processes.
Dashboard V3
Control and search all of your proxies from Illusory Dashboard. Additionally, change IPs, set auto-rotate settings, disable IPv4 (explained later), authorize users via IP whitelist, activate superPort (also explained later), and see current proxy connections and last IP change.

Illusory has invested heavily in the infrastructure, hardware, and locale R&D to support 5G and future developments of the technology. All devices operate on 5G-capable hardware, running the latest Snapdragon 888; all within 5G network 2 vicinities to capitalize on such connections.
What does 5G mean for Illusory users?
There are huge benefits to 5G in general. The primary plus for Illusory customers is improved latency, faster proxies, and early access to a better, more reliable proxy experience as the globe continues to develop and adopt the protocol.
Illusory superPort
superPort is a special feature of the Illusory platform. It allows you to forward HTTP & SOCKS5 requests through any proxy you specify, without having to change the proxy details in your application.

This allows you to set the superPort as your proxy within your application, but forward the requests through any of your proxies via Illusory Dashboard or API.
T-Mobile ISP
With the latest Sprint merger, T-Mobile proxies are more powerful than ever. We’ve now added T-Mobile to the Illusory family to join AT&T and Verizon.
IPv6 Only Feature
IPv6 + Illusory = 3+ nonillion IP addresses (a lot)
Illusory allows users to disable IPv4 entirely. This forces “supporting sites and apps” to identify you by your external IPv6 address only, rather than your IPv4. This is a huge benefit since there are 340 trillion trillion trillion (3+ nonillion) IPv6 addresses.
Here’s a great video 👇 explaining the main difference by Linus from 2014.
IPv4 vs IPv6
IPv6 is the latest version of the Internet Protocol.
The previous version, IPv4, uses a 32-bit addressing scheme to support 4.3 billion devices, which was thought to be enough. However, the growth of the internet, personal computers, smartphones and now Internet of Things devices proves that the world needed more addresses.
Fortunately, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) recognized this 20 years ago. In 1998 it created IPv6, which instead uses 128-bit addressing to support approximately 340 trillion trillion trillion. Instead of the IPv4 address method of four sets of one- to three-digit numbers, IPv6 uses eight groups of four hexadecimal digits, separated by colons.
What are the benefits of IPv6?
In its work, the IETF included enhancements to IPv6 compared with IPv4. The IPv6 protocol can handle packets more efficiently, improve performance and increase security. It enables internet service providers to reduce the size of their routing tables by making them more hierarchical.
