Following the progress of the internet, proxy providers have increased in numbers and features. While in reality, that isn’t a bad thing, having too many options can be complicated. The main reason for that is the vast options and not knowing which one to go for.

The good news for you is that today, you’ll be able to find out if one of the many is a good option. I had a chance to play around with proxies gotten from Leafproxies and put them to the test.

So, the question is: will Leafproxies perform as advertised?

In the proxy world, Leafproxies is a provider that won’t make it to the top of many lists. That doesn’t mean that it’s a bad option, it just means that the company probably isn’t as widely known as some of the others.

Getting people on board to purchase a package from a particular provider usually means that they need to read something good. In most cases, that comes from the websites, something that Leafproxies doesn’t seem to be extremely impressive. It’s not that the website is terrible, but I believe the company could do with a bit more boasting of its services.

For example, finding out the number of residential proxies took a bit of clicking, and when I reached the number, I was pretty surprised. Leafproxies claims that it has over 100 million residential proxies. Based on this alone, this is the largest proxy network in the world.

With residential proxies aside, you also have datacenter proxies. The exact number and location of these aren’t available. There are 6 datacenters across the world, without any specifics for the locations.

In addition to that, Leafproxies also has Windows servers, which I won’t be getting into in great detail.

Overall, the providers seem to has a lot of options, but are they worth it? In today’s review, I will put Leafproxies to the test and let you know if it’s a provider that you should look into.

  • 2FA available
  • Over 100 million residential proxies
  • Last Minute offers
  • Datacenter, residential and mobile proxies are available
  • 60-day packages
  • IP whitelist and username and password authentication
  • Average latency and download speed results
  • No trial or refund

Proxy Types, Features, and Pricing

Starting with the proxies, you have the option to choose between residential and datacenter.

At first glance, for the residential proxies, it will seem like you have only one package, but there are multiple options. Like most residential proxy providers, you have limited bandwidth, and that’s where the packages differ. You can pick up a package for as low as $19.50 up to $67.50. There are 3 packages, with 1, 2, or 4 GB of bandwidth included.

Leafproxies has a slightly unique package system. When you purchase any of the plans, you get 60-day access to the proxies, and they will remain active until you use up the bandwidth. As for the pool of proxies, Leafproxies claims to have over 100 million proxies throughout 4 networks. Even though the list of locations is unknown, the company claims to have IP addresses in every country. In terms of authentication, IP and username, and password options are available.

You can also find datacenter proxies, separated into several groups, but things get weird. There are 4 packages, and even though Leafproxies advertises them as datacenter ones, there are also mobile and residential ones.

The mobile IP addresses come with no limit on the bandwidth and are active for 30 days. Leafproxies claims that all proxies have 100Gpbs speeds but don’t specify the number of IP addresses. Location-wise, all of them are from North Virginia. Unfortunately, the only available authentication method is with a username and password.

For the residential ones, it’s more or less the same story. You get North Virginian IP addresses for a month that should have 20Gbps speeds. The number of proxies is unknown, and these allow captcha harvesting. As with mobile proxies, the number of available IP addresses is unknown.

There are also a few other options that may interest some people, but only in specific situations. You can find several other packages of IP addresses that cover additional use cases or locations. Leafproxies also has IPv6 IP addresses that you can use for PVA tools. In addition to that, you can also get weekly proxies and some last-minute sales. They change a lot, based on what the company offers, but you may find some good bargains on proxies that may work for you.

With the proxies aside, Leafproxies also offers servers. You may be left with the impression that Leafproxies has plenty of server options, but in reality, there is only one. It’s a Windows server located in Ashburn, Virginia, with a few options to choose from. The storage options remain the same, and the difference is in the number of cors for the CPU and RAM.

One aspect that I’m not a huge fan of is the refund policy or the lack thereof. All sales on Leafproxies are final, meaning that you won’t be able to ask for a refund or get a few proxies to test drive them. When you look at the price, you will understand why, as Leafproxies has quite competitive prices compared to its competitors.

Location of Proxy Servers

I’m not a huge fan of proxy providers that don’t provide too much information, and that’s the case with Leafproxies. The company claims to have over 100 million proxies in every country in the world. Looking at the numbers, that isn’t impossible, but I would have liked to see some transparency.

For the mobile proxies, there aren’t too many options; there is only one. The proxies are from North Virginia, but unfortunately, the number of proxies is unknown.

Things are a bit better with the datacenter proxies, at least in terms of locations. Leafproxies outlines where the servers are located. The downside is that the number of available proxies is unknown.

Ping and Speed Test

I couldn’t test every type of proxies that Leafproxies has, so I took the residential ones.

As residential proxies, I had some high expectations, but I figured that I shouldn’t expect too much considering the application. This was backed by the fact that Leafproxies doesn’t have any claims in terms of the speeds.

I have mixed feelings about the results in the table. On the one hand, I’m a bit disappointed, and on the other hand, I’m a bit impressed. Let me break it down for you.

Starting off with the latency, things aren’t as good as I was hoping for. The pings were hovering around the 100 ms mark, which wasn’t as low as some of the competitors. The good thing about it is that the numbers are more or less similar, meaning that there is plenty of consistency.

The download speeds were not what I was expecting. Despite not getting any claims and promises from Leafproxies about the speeds, these are not record-breaking speeds. I’m aware that residential proxies aren’t as fast as datacenter ones, but there are some better performers out there.

For the upload speed, I cannot say that it’s excellent, but it’s much better than the download speeds. All of them are in the 3-digit section, with one going almost to 300 Mbps. The problem is that there was one that’s a bit over 100 Mbps, meaning that the range is quite big.

GEOlocation Test / ISP Test

Depending on the use case, you may end up in a situation where you need proxies from a specific location. In those circumstances, the IP addresses need to be identified correctly. Regardless of whether you’re bypassing geo-restrictions or verifying ads, you cannot be in a situation with proxies from a different location than the one advertised.

Leafproxies claims that the IP addresses I was testing are from Ashburn, Virginia, so I put that claim to the test.

The results are as expected, meaning that I received proxies from Virginia. There is a slight discrepancy, though. One of the services identified the proxies from Ashburn, while the second one found them to be from Centreville. Even though both are part of different counties in Virginia, they are still fairly close, so that shouldn’t pose any problems.

IP Compatibility Test

There are some specific situations where you’ll need a proxy to access a website that may not be available in your region. This is a geo-restriction bypass, but you may end up with a problem.

Some websites are designed to be better at others at detecting proxies. They will restrict access if you notice that you are trying to access them behind a proxy.

In most cases, an excellent way to avoid this restriction and strictness is to use residential proxies. The ones I got from Leafproxies are residential ones, but I still tested them to see how they perform.

Each proxy managed to get access to every website I tested it on, which should be expected. This is not anuncommon occurrence, but I’ve had some residential proxies fail this test.

Features of Leafproxies

Unlimited bandwidth for datacenter proxies

There are some cases where you’d want to have no restrictions in terms of usage. Thanks to Leafproxies’ datacenter packages, you get no limit on the bandwidth, which many people want. I would have like to see an unlimited package for the residential and mobile proxies as well. Naturally, it would have been with a higher price tag.

Over 100 million proxies

I’m taking this with a grain of salt, but I won’t call Leafproxies a liar. Having this many proxies means that this is the largest proxy network in the world. One thing that strikes me odd is that providers like Bright Data are considered the largest, probably due to the marketing. Location-wise, Leafproxes doesn’t outline the countries and says that there are IP addresses in every country in the world.

IP whitelist and Username and password authentication

To be honest, I wasn’t thrilled to find that the datacenter proxies could only be authenticated with a username and password. The good news is that there are proxy packages from the residential and mobile section that also have IP whitelisting. Having both types of authentication gives you greater flexibility in terms of usage.

60-day packages

This is another feature available for the residential proxies, but it’s worth mentioning. Unlike most providers, Leafproxies offers 60-day packages for a very attractive price. The IP addresses will remain active wither for 60 days or until you used up the bandwidth.

Last minute deals

If you’ve even been shopping, you certainly have noticed some last-minute sale in the store. Leafproxies have a similar section where the company adds some packages with a discount. You may not find what you need every time, but you may succeed if the timing is right.

Easy to use

In terms of usability, I have to say that I’m impressed with Leafproxies’ dashboard. It is one of the cleanest and simplest ones I’ve seen in a long time. Everything you need is on one page, and you can do everything from there.

Leafproxies dashboard

I would rate Leafproxies’ dashboard as one of the easiest ones to use, making it an excellent option for novice proxies users.

How to authenticate

Leafproxies offers username and password and IP whitelisting authentication for its residential and mobile proxy packages. This is an excellent feature, offering a flexible option, depending on your use cases.

If you’re using them from a single location, then IP whitelisting is the better option. That way, you won’t have to worry about entering the username and password each time.

For people that use proxies on the go, then the username and password option is the best way to go.

In both cases, the setting is in the main dashboard window. There is a toggle under the graph with the used data that needs to be in “Legacy Mode.” This will open the settings for the authentication.

To whitelist an IP address, you need to have “IP Auth” selected and enter the IP address in the field below. For the username and password login, you can set up up to 3 different passwords if multiple people use the same account.

Our Editor’s Verdict

My overall thoughts on Leafproxies are positive. There are aspects of the provider that I’m not a huge fan of, but it’s not too terrible.


Lefproxies is a provider that seems to tick most of the boxes when it comes to its offerings. Even though some of the information is not the most available on the website, the performance is there, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.


Considering the wide range of packages and options, Leafproxies can really be a one-stop-shop for most of your needs. Apart from the datacenter and residential proxies, the company also offers mobile proxies. On top of that, the Windows server options are a nice touch.

You can argue that the flexibility of the packages isn’t as good as with some of its competitors. While that’s true, there are some positive sides. Leafproxies often has last Minute offers where they sell proxies at a discount, which goes in favor of the users.

When it comes to use cases, the wide range of options means that Leafproxies can be used for anything from data scraping to SEO or ad verification. I wouldn’t recommend streaming, as the download speeds weren’t outstanding, so you may not have the best experience.


Price-wise, I would put Leafproxies in the more affordable part of the pool. The prices are not dirt cheap but are cheaper than some of the more popular options. For that, you get access to quite a lot of residential proxies and several datacenters around the world. Plus, the option to have a package be available to you for up to 60 days is a nice touch, especially for those that don’t need to use too much bandwidth.


If we take the speeds out of the equation, Leafproxies is a very reliable proxy provider. All IP addresses I got performed well and had no problems with them, regardless of the tests.


On the support side of things, I have to say that Leafproxies lacks a bit. The only option to reach out to someone in the company is via email. You won’t be waiting for a response, as the team aims to reply in the shortest time available, but I would have liked to see a phone or a chat support option.

Like most providers, you have an FAQ section. It has a good amount of helpful questions answered, so for the most part, you won’t need to reach out to support for help.

Our Verdict

With over 100 million residential proxies worldwide, as Leafproxies claims, this is one of the biggest networks in the industry. The result of this is that users will never feel like the provider doesn’t have enough IP addresses. In addition to that, there are also several datacenter worldwide, meaning that you have a decent amount of proxy options.

In terms of results in the tests, I was fairly satisfied for the most part. I think that the download speeds of the residential proxies are a bit on the low end, but you should be fine with them as long as you don’t stream or download torrents. For the upload speeds, even though they varied quite a lot, I was pretty surprised by how high some of them were. Latency isn’t as low as I would want it to be, but it’s decent and lower than some other providers I tested.

The geo-location and IP test passed with flying colors, as any residential IP address should. I got slightly different results between the two IP lookup services I used, but the consistency was there. In other words, it could be a discrepancy with the services I used, not Leafproxies.

One area of Leafproxies that I don’t lack is the lack of refund or trial. The provider doesn’t offer either one, and each sale is final, regardless of whether you have problems with the proxies or don’t work the way you thought they would.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, there’s something that I like, and that is 2FA. When cybersecurity is crucial, having a two-factor authentication is a nice touch, and I have to praise Leafproxies for having it.

In general, Leafproxies isn’t a perfect provider, but there are more pros than cons. With all the features it has, combined with the lower price tag and plenty of proxies, it’s a provider that I can recommend. Yes, you won’t be getting some premium support or a clear outline of the number of proxies and locations, but it’s not something you can’t live without.
