Proxy is a service that hides your IP address and helps to surf the Internet more safely and confidently. 

When you connect to the Internet, your device is assigned an individual address (IP address). It can be used to gather a lot of data about its owner. An IP address can determine the user’s location, Internet provider, full name, phone number, and address. Some of this info is openly accessible, some can only be obtained at the request of the authorities.

If you want to hide your IP address, use a proxy. It will substitute your IP address for another one and help you to stay anonymous.

Proxies are located on special proxy servers.

How do proxy servers work

How do proxy servers work?

Your computer or any other device connects to a proxy server, receives an anonymous IP address, and then goes online to visit whatever resource you want.

A proxy server is a computer that acts as an intermediary between the user and the website they wish to connect to. If you use a proxy server, all the websites you visit see its IP address instead of your real one. For example, if you bought a German proxy, you will be regarded as a user from Germany online.
