In most cases people used to use Proxy Servers to access site blocked by ISP or administrator of a Net.
Usually they start using them because this is the most widespread method to unblock blocked site. In this post I would like to clear some old myth about proxies.
I’m sure that many of you already know what a proxy server is, so I won’t write about this once again. If you want to get any definition of it you can use any of your favorite Search Engine (e.g. Google).
It is all about truth that Proxy Servers cannot help you very much to unblock blocked site. However, many Internet users decided that this is the most convenient, and what the most important for them, free of charge way to unblock blocked site. But as you know nothing is free.
Personally, I had been using lots of proxy servers and programmes that apparently generate huge Proxy Lists. I didn't suppose that paid software and free software use the same proxy servers. What I’m talking about? Read the next paragraph to get the answer.
Most programmes generating Proxy Servers lists, if not all of them, use different algorithms of generating these lists, BUT they have the same Proxy Servers Lists that are available for free all over the Internet.
Talking about that we can assume that these Proxy Servers are not anonymous because a lot of users already know about them, and furthermore, they use them in the Internet for a long period of time.
Concluding, I want to say that this is the high time to understand that all free staff is not safe. By using Free Proxy Servers you risk to be caught for nothing because you cannot realize who used these lists and you do not know where these proxies had been banned and what for either. Any of Security organization dealing with Internet crime can easily identify your real IP address under Proxy Server’s one and find you in several days.
So, before the using of Free Proxy servers it is always a good idea to think about your personal security.
It must be added that software generating Proxy Servers lists also use random algorithm that changes proxy servers every particular period. Such software owners reassure their customers of security. They all lie because if proxy servers are not anonymous it does not matter if you change them all the time or not, your real IP address is visible for people hunting you.
On this sad note I won’t end. There are a lot of legal software that use pure anonymous servers. Most of them are difficult to find because they are created for big organizations rather than for Internet users.
You can check out weekly updated list of Hide IP Soft. I use one of software out there, SmartHide. This service provides personal IP address that is unique and fast (100 Mb/s), i.e. I use it privately, no one knows about this IP except me. It perfectly can unblock blocked site.
This service can be compared with anonymizer. But anonymizer is high-priced and provides very slow servers. But it provides Personal IPs too.
Feel free to comment regarding any issue that you might be interested in. I will assist you with pleasure.
