I like an output with more informations like proxycheck it does:

Yes, I am the owner of the site. I recently finished building it. So if you do find issues, let me know.

Currently, there are no limitations. I do not plan on adding any for this API ( Y / N ). Results are being cached by Cloudflare for 7 days assuming multiple people hit the same Cloudflare DC. We update our proxy, ASN, and tor data once a day. The ASN service we query for determining which ASN is hosting which IP every 7 days.

I agree with your point of view on a better API that provides more features. I have already been coding this up. I am not sure what I will do with it yet, but I might make it a paid service for this more full-featured API. I plan on making it very reasonable cost-wise, but I haven't determined that yet fully.

The API that I posted with the ( Y / N ) will be free for the life of me hosting it. I do not plan on ever making the API limited in any way for that one beyond having the cache.

The goal of the project is at its heart to provide a:
  • Free
  • Fast
  • Drop-In Replacement
  • Improved with Hosting Providers, Tor Relays, and Open Proxies.


If you think any of this is unfair or in need of a rethink let me know!

Let me know if you have any troubles, and I will work on addressing them.

Just a warning to everyone out there, that website has a lot of false positives and some false negatives.

I sent emails to MUN about false positives and did not receive any response.

We've made our own VPN detector since then.

What email did you send this to?

Are you sure it was me?

When did you send the email. I have checked all my accounts and I have nothing from you. Are you sure you are not confusing me with the original site?

Sorry I thought you made the original blackbox site as well since your new website was also named blackbox.

A'ok.

Was just wanting to confirm that I hadn't ignored you.

We do not use the same list, but the API was built as a drop-in replacement for the other service you were talking about. That is why the names are similar and meant to be similar.
