Whenever I travel, I usually drive, so that means when I’m on the road, I’m usually working. If I stop at Panera for a quick snack or if I’m staying in a motel over-night, I bring my laptop in so I can get things done. Because of this, I’m relying on public Wi-Fi during my trips. With all the talk of identity theft and hackers, I always wondered if someone sitting at the next table or staying in the next room was a hacker. I tried to be cautious, but the worry was still there until I discovered Private Proxy. Now, I can go anywhere and work on the Internet without worrying about my privacy. Yes, there are free proxies available, but I was always told that you get what you pay for and some of those free proxies aren’t run by very scrupulous people. These people can, and sometimes do, monitor the information being sent out and will use it against you. Another thing to consider is that since the proxies are free, they are public and anyone can use them (just like public Wi-Fi). No information you send out is encrypted. With Private Proxy, I’m assured of an unmonitored, encrypted connection at all times. This way, I feel much safer knowing that no one can read my personal information.
I also like that no one can figure out if I’m home or on the road. Since Private Proxy gives me a choice of many rotating and static connections in the US, Canada and the Netherlands, I can be “seen” as being in the States even when I’m over-seas. It also works to my advantage in the opposite way. If a friend invites me to her child’s birthday party and I have had enough of ball pits and clowns for the year, I can choose one of the proxy servers on the other side of the country so it looks like I’m traveling. Not that I don’t like my friends, their kids or their parties, but there is only so much of the bad magic tricks and silly string one person can handle!
