Advantages of using a proxy

Connecting to the web through a proxy allows you to access websites from a different IP address than your own. You do not connect to the websites anymore, you only connect to the proxy, the proxy fetches the sites for you and gives you back the results. Note the even when you access the web through a proxy, your cookies remain the same, on Firefox, use "Start Private Browsing" to start fresh with no cookies.

  • Allows you to access websites that are blocked on your network.
  • Allows you to access websites that have blocked your IP address.
  • Allows you to see how websites look to other countries.
  • Allows you to benefit many times of something that each person should benefit from 1 time but uses IP address to differenciate persons (example, megavideo..).
  • Allows to create multiple accounts that cannot be linked to each other (do not forget to clear cookies too or use private browsing, might wanna have a look at flash cookies and clear cache as well!)

Dangers of using a proxy

Please be aware that using a proxy does not mean that you are 100% anonymous and protected.

  • proxies owners can access the information that you pass through their proxies. never submit any personal information through a proxy. avoid loggin on to important sites or entering any financial information when you are browsing through a proxy.
  • using a proxy to commit a legal offense over the internet does not make you untraceable. the authorities could obtain the collaboration of the proxy owner to be able to trace a legal offender.
