Enter URL (website address) in the top right form and hit the browse button to start browsing anonymously, using a random proxy site. Or enter a website address and click on a proxy of your choice, from the list to open URL in that proxy.
Proxies keep your computer/mobile data and your location protected on the internet. Apart from data protection web proxies have become the easiest way to bypass geographical bans and internet filtering imposed in different areas. Glype is most popular proxy script followed by PHProxy and CGIProxy.
If you are not using a web proxy you reveal your geo location
Proxy websites servers are located across the world. When someone starts using these servers to browse the internet, their real geographical location, IP address is never exposed to sites they visit.
If you are not using a proxy, your real location and computer information, are logged by websites. A web proxy provides you a different IP address, with new geolocation hence your computer and browser data remains private.
There has been a surge in encrypted and secure proxy sites, as long as you are using a secure https:// proxy, you can rest assured. About 40% of proxy sites listed on PreProxy are secure sites with SSL certificates. Look for SSL when selecting a proxy site. Glype and other proxy scripts work on SSL connection.
The short answer to this question is yes. However, most sophisticated activity tracking comes from likes of Youtube and Facebook. Proxy sites cannot match size and scale of these sites. Proxy scripts on the most of the servers, do not log activity. Advertisements on these proxy sites are pretty irrelevant, which suggest they are not tracking users, hence displaying random ads.
Be wary and be selective. Select a secure proxy on Pre-Proxy. Check browser address bar to confirm HTTPS with a green lock displayed. Never use a proxy to log in to your bank account. In case of emergencies, use the proxy to check your email but later on, change your passwords.
If you are using proxies to log in to Facebook, Instagram and other social media sites, develop a habit of changing passwords and enable two-factor authentication on these sites. Sites with two-factor security are safer as you need a password and a code to log in. So even if your password is compromised, your account remains protected.
Majority of proxy sites are US based followed by proxies in Germany, UK web proxies and Canadian proxy sites.
