Autofill Magic is an automatic link building tool that’s utilized by SEO professionals to create backlinks. Backlinks are needed to increase a website’s search engine rankings and Autofill Magic can help decrease the time and effort in creating a backlink and only produces high quality ones. Autofill Magic is a premium service but you can have a free 7-day trial if you want to try it out first.
Automation tools are extremely restricted on most websites and if a website detects that you’re using one on their site, they would immediately ban your account and blacklist your IP address. To avoid getting flagged by websites, you need to pair Autofill Magic with an excellent proxy.
An Autofill Magic proxy will act as an intermediary between your device and the internet. Any website you visit will only be able to see the IP address of the proxy server so by using residential proxies and continuously rotating IPs, you would be able to deceive any website into thinking that you’re not using an automation tool.
Let’s set up an Autofill Magic proxy server.
To set up proxies in Windows, simply search for “Proxy Settings” in your windows search bar and open the search result.
You are then given two options to choose from: Automatic proxy setup or Manual proxy setup. If you want windows to automatically detect your proxy settings, choose the first option. Choose the second option if you want to utilize a specific ip address and port number.
If you chose the first option, then:
- Turn on Automatically detect Settings
- Turn on Use setup script
- Enter the script address
- Click Save
If you chose the second option, then:
- Turn on Use a proxy server
- Input both server address and port number
- If you have any addresses you would like to visit without a proxy, enter them here
- Turn on Don’t use the proxy server for local addresses check box if you want to access a local server without a proxy
- Click Save

To start configuring your proxy settings in MacOS, simply:
Step 1. Click on the Apple Icon.
Step 2. On the drop down menu, click on “System Preferences”.
Step 3. Click on “Network”
Step 4. Click on “Advanced”
Note: Make sure to connect to your wi-fi first.
Step 5. Click on “Proxies”
This should then redirect you to MacOS proxy settings. MacOS is more straightforward compared to windows. You only have one option which is to manually configure your proxy server.
Here are the steps to follow:
- Select which proxy IP protocol you want to configure. This depends on which protocols your proxy service provider offers.
- Turn on Secure Web Proxy
- Input the Proxy Server Address and Port Number
- Click OK to save the configurations
Note: You may be prompted for your Mac user password to save your settings.
