Example use cases

Ad networks use Luminati to anonymously view their advertisers' landing pages to ensure they don't contain malware,
or improper advertising. If ad networks used a regular server based proxy network,
the malicious advertiser would know he's being checked, and could cloak them with a different message.
Retailers price their products algorithmically relative to competitor’s pricing.
They use Luminati to collect this data without being blocked or deceived.

Luminati is based on our consumer P2P routing service

Hola's popular P2P routing service allows consumers to browse anonymously, by routing their HTTP requests through other Hola users.

Consumers choose to be part of the network

Consumers can use the HolaVPN service by contributing their idle resources or by paying a monthly subscription instead.

The Luminati business proxy network

Luminati enables businesses to route their HTTP requests through this huge P2P network on a pay-as-you-go basis. The Luminati service is what makes the Hola consumer network free for millions of users.
The Luminati network consists of millions of nodes with residential IPs and geographic coverage of every city in the world. Scale up to millions of IPs and back down to a few, using a simple API.
