Anonymous Proxy Working!

I read and understands what is an anonymous proxy is. But, since when we are connecting to the internet via your own IP address, how do you actually protect your anonymity?

Re: Anonymous Proxy Working!

Anonymous browsing is simply browsing the World Wide Web with most of your identity hidden. This is primarily done through what is known as an anonymous browser based proxy. These are the websites that you can use to input the address of the web page that you wish to visit, and the service will take you to that website with information such as the location of your computer and the IP address hidden from the web page. For example, when the user tries to access something on a certain part of the web, the proxy will talk to that file as an ambassador of the user, maintaining the privacy of the user. The practice of anonymous browsing can also maintain the privacy of the user from potential loggers spying on the user's connection.

As anonymous browsing also lets the user bypass restrictions placed in the Internet connection such as a simple firewall, it is a widely used technique. It is especially often used in schools and offices where there are heavy restrictions on web pages that are and are not accessible.

Re: Anonymous Proxy Working!

Anonymous (not anonymous) proxy servers hide your IP address and thereby prevent your from unauthorized access to your computer through the Internet. They do not provide anyone with your IP address and effectively hide any information about you and your reading interests.
Besides that, they don?t even let anyone know that you are surfing through a anonymous proxy server. Anonymous proxy servers can be used for all kinds of Web-services, such as Web-Mail (MSN Hot Mail, Yahoo mail), web-chat rooms, FTP archives, etc.

HTTP Proxy Server

It is the most widespread type of server and when you hear just "proxy", it means nothing, but this type of a server. Earlier with a help of this server it was only possible to view web pages and pictures and download files. Now, new program versions (ICQ, etc.) know how to work through the HTTP proxies. Browsers of any versions know how to work with this type of proxy server.

Re: Anonymous Proxy Working!

How to browse Anonymously:

Step 1: Download and Install the Firefox Web Browser by clicking the image below. It's just like Internet Explorer, but blocks all ads and makes it easier to get to the sites that you love, like MySpace.

Step 2: Download an install the SwitchProxy Extension for Firefox. It's super easy and fast!

Step 3: Add this Anonymous Proxy List to SwtichProxy.
