Why Use Proxies for ZennoPoster?
ZennoPoster does not force you to make use of proxies. You will have to do that on your own and let face it, there are times when you need proxies. If you need to automate multiple accounts on the same website that does not support a user to manage more than one account, then you will need to use proxies to hide your IP footprint if you do not want to lose your account.
You will also need proxies if you intend to send too many requests within a short period of time. Proxies are also helpful if you intend to access content that is exclusively available only to users from certain locations.

Rotating Vs. Sticky Proxies - Which are the Best for ZennoPoster?
Both rotating and sticky proxies have their strengths and weaknesses, and as such, have projects they are best suited for. If you need to maintain a session on a website for a while such as tasks that towels require you to log into your account, then you will need to make use of sticky proxies.
Sticky proxies are less suspicious as rotating proxies would quickly reveal you are using proxies since IP addresses do not get changed as frequently as proxies change them. On the other hand, if you won’t be logged into an account and you would be sending too many requests, then rotating proxies are the best.
