Benefits of an Anonymous Web Surfing Proxy

Posted in Discussions by thotrther on the June 25th, 2012

It can be dangerous surfing the web; it can expose your personal data even if you would rather remain anonymous. It does not necessarily require malware or virus to exist in order for this to happen.  It’s good for you to know that nearly all of your browsing activity can be recorded and analyzed, from your place of origin, the kind of browser you use and your browser history. If you are using a computer that supports programs such as fingers and indents, now they can get access to data such as your name and other personal data that can severely put you at risk.

Just how do they get all these information?

It’s easy; every time you visit a website, some data will be collected and stored and every visit to a website actually reveals some form of data about you. This information is intercepted and used to track you online.

How do you prevent it?
 
It can be very relaxing feeling to know that there is a way to surf the web anonymously. It is not a foolproof approach but at least you are taking some steps to protect yourself. You can use an anonymous web surfing proxy. They are great to hide your own IP. This has the effect of masking your IP address and making it much harder for people to track you.

You can also use an encrypted connection to prevent exposure of data. There is a lot of information on this technology, so do surf the web to find out more. Delete all cookies after each session. The next thing you can choose to do is to remove all JavaScript, Java, and other active contents such as ActiveX and even interactive Flash applications. Unfortunately, this may limit your surfing experience, so you need to consider the cost and benefits of such actions.
