What is it?

An SDK that provides alternative monetization

Spider Proxy Network

Users may join Spider P2P Proxy Network and contribute routing resources when not using their device.

Friendly

Routing only when the user is idle, has at least 60% battery, or is on external power. We prefer to use WiFi. The SDK may use very limited cellular data..

Full transparency

Users choose between plans for your service: subscription service, ad-based service, or free usage in return for sharing resources.
