When we visit any website, our IP is logged till the session is maintained with that website and when we leave that page the trails of our activities are left behind. This could be used in tracking our activities that we did during the whole session and this information could be misused by the hackers or the sniffers. For example if we do some net transaction, then during the whole session from start till the end of transaction; our activities may be traced by the sniffers using the IP through which we work over the internet. So it is recommended to use Anonymous Proxy Server which acts as an intermediary between you and the websites you visit.
What is Anonymous Proxy Server?
Anonymous Proxy Server acts as an online web host that lets you connect to the server and use the server’s internet connection. When we use Anonymous Proxy Server our IP won’t be logged in to the website we visit, thus ensuring privacy for every activity that we do during that session.
So now the next question that comes to our mind is… Every site will look for IP address without which it won’t grant permission to access the page then how do things work here?
The answer is Anonymous Proxy Server acts like a bridge between the user and the target page. So when we try to access a particular page, Anonymous Proxy Server displays it’s IP (Proxy servers IP) instead of showing our IP, then it retrieves the data from that website and sends the final output to us. So the entire session will be completely safe and secured.
Other use of Anonymous Proxy Server
Other than maintaining the privacy of the user Anonymous Proxy Server even acts like a code breaker of geographic restrictions enabled by certain websites. There are certain sites which has geographic restrictions… I visited a site few days back wherein after registering my access got denied saying that I am from India. There are many such sites which grant permission depending upon the actual location of the user which will be traced from the users IP. Such kind of sites can be easily accessed using Anonymous Proxy Server with ease.
Some of the free Anonymous Proxy Servers available are Proxify, Anonymouse, Anonymizer, Ninja Cloak, Elite Proxy Server etc.
