Proxies are virtual servers that provide anonymity to the user. They are also known as proxy servers or proxy service providers. Proxies work by intercepting requests for web pages and then forwarding them on to the intended destination server.
The main purpose of a proxy server is to enable clients to access resources that they would otherwise be blocked from accessing. Proxies have many other uses too, such as caching and security.
A proxy server can be used by an Internet user to access web pages which may be blocked by a content filter or firewalls at their workplace or school. It can also be used by someone who wants to browse the internet anonymously and prevent websites from gathering information about them (such as their IP address).
How Different Types of Proxies Can Be Used
The most popular types of proxies are HTTP/HTTPS and SOCKS4. The first one is used to bypass restrictions set by firewalls and access websites directly, while the latter is used to access both web pages and services on a network.
