What is a proxy

A proxy is server that acts like a gateway or intermediary between any device and the rest of the internet. A proxy accepts and forwards connection requests, then returns data for those requests. This is the basic definition, which is quite limited, because there are dozens of unique proxy types with their own distinct configurations.

Proxies make up our websites, online services, and other networks. People use proxies for many things: most proxies can change your IP address, while others can protect large websites or simply authenticate public Wi-Fi users.

Finding an IP Address

What can someone do with your IP address

Types of Proxies

People use proxies to:

Avoid Geo-restrictions

Many websites limit access to some geographic regions. They detect locations by checking the IP addresses of every device that tries to connect to their servers.

People use good proxy servers to hide their IP address and change it to the proxy server's IP. This means that anyone using a high quality US proxy can access any US-only content without restrictions.

Protect Privacy and Increase Security

The internet has become a dangerous place, and people are looking for ways to use services privately and not give away any sensitive information. Your IP address is some of the most vulnerable information about you, as it pinpoints your location and internet service provider.

In some sense, browsing the internet with your IP address in the open is the same as displaying your social security number or passport everywhere you go, because hackers can use any IP address to track you or break into your device. Proxies put a stop to this violation of privacy and hide the IP

Avoid Firewalls and Bans

Schools, workplaces and even some countries block certain websites. Their firewalls and blocks have no effect on proxies, so you can connect to a proxy server and use it to connect to Instagram , Reddit or Twitter with ease.

This works, because the firewall does not detect your true goal, it just detects that you are connecting to the proxy IP address. The proxy server then connects to the site you want and sends the information back to your device. The firewall once again cannot detect the true origin of that content, as it seems like coming from the proxy.

Automate Online Processes

Automation and higher efficiency is on everyone's mind these days. As the internet expands in leaps and bounds, it is impossible to do some things manually. For example, you cannot run a travel planning company without a script that automatically checks every flight service's prices

Those same flight services have to protect their servers from malicious attacks, so your IP gets banned after the first hundred of connections. This is when you can use a proxy network to automate the process.coming from the proxy
