Lately I’ve come across a number of websites that are promoting anonymous proxies. These sites are filled with nonsensical articles and are designed to drive traffic to one or two anonymous proxy websites. I guess I have to ask the question, if they are creating garbage websites just for the purpose of spamming the search engines, how good can their products be.
The proxy marketplace is filled with lots of companies. We have a number of quality competitors that I know and respect.
Unfortunately, the anonymous proxy world overall is a scary place. Many of these proxy companies are out to take your money one way or another. Remember that when you are connected to an anonymous proxy server, everything you do goes through that server. Do you really feel comfortable putting your personal information through a server owned by a company that may not be legitimate?
Before you buy anything online, make sure that you know who you are doing business with. That is especially true with proxy companies and even software companies. If you install something on your PC, then you are granting that program access to all your information. Again, maybe this is not a big deal, but I like to know the source of anything I install on my PC.
On a related note, we get a lot of phone calls from people before they sign up for our service. I think this is mostly to reassure them that we are indeed a real company with real people who stand behind our products. Think that’s silly? Try calling some of the other proxy companies out there.
Stay safe by knowing who you are doing business with.Tags: anonymous proxies, Anonymous Proxy, anonymous proxy server, Internet Privacy, Invasion of Privacy, Privacy, proxy, software companies
