Tidal Music, or simply Tidal, is a global streaming service that offers users a variety of high-quality music, podcasts and videos. Although Tidal was originally owned by a Swedish company, Aspiro, it’s now majority-owned by an American company named Block. Tidal Music is available for free but users can gain access to higher quality audio by subscribing to their higher tier subscriptions. Compared to other music streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music, Tidal’s highest tier subscription has the highest audio quality and sound quality but it does cost more.
Tidal Music has over 70 million tracks, 250 thousand videos, and lots of user playlists. So, if you want to scrape valuable data from Tidal then you would need to use a scraper bot as manually doing so would take too much time and effort. Although using a bot would save you so much hours and energy, Tidal Music has a strict anti-bot system that will immediately ban your IP address if it recognizes that you’re using a bot. The best way to circumvent this policy is to use a Tidal Music proxy.
Tidal Music proxies are simply regular proxies that work as a gateway between your device and the internet. Any website you visit or application you use will only be able to see the IP address of the proxy server and never your own IP address. By constantly changing the IP address of your bot through rotating proxies, you can mislead Tidal Music into thinking that your bot’s requests are coming from different people with various locations instead of it coming from a single IP address. This enables you to scrape without restrictions and not be afraid of being banned.
As Tidal Music is only available in 61 countries, a Tidal Music proxy is also useful for bypassing geographical restrictions if you live in a region that has no access to Tidal Music. Even if you’re just visiting those regions, you still won’t be able to access Tidal and play music.
The best Tidal Music proxies to use would be either residential proxies or datacenter proxies, depending on what you want. If you want full assurance that your bot won’t be banned by Tidal Music while giving you total anonymity, then residential proxies are the one for you. If you value speed and want a faster way to scrape data, then datacenter proxies are what’s best for you.
Let’s set up a Tidal Music proxy server.
Note: A reminder to make sure that the web browser you’re using for Tidal Music is set to automatically copy your system’s proxy settings. It’s recommended to use Google Chrome because it automatically does this.
