Proxy Servers | VPN Services | Surfing Anonymously

Welcome to! My name is Jonathan Higgins in this website is dedicated to providing you with the resources necessary to surf the web safely and anonymously. Identity theft is on the rise and Internet users need to take more deliberate action to protect themselves from becoming victims.


Furthermore, your Internet service provider knows every site you visit and everything you do on the Internet. Even if you’re squeaky clean, no one has a right to know what you’re doing. You may post pictures of you kids on Facebook or do online banking.


Your Internet service provider has no right to have access to your personal life. And remember, your Internet service provider is really made up of people just like you and me to go to work every day. Some creepy and criminal people could have access to your personal life.


What are Anonymous Proxy Sites or VPNs?


Basically, when you visit a website the trail is left behind showing that you, identified by your IP address, visited such and such a website, identified by their IP address, everything you do is log with the ISP. And, competent hackers are able to get in between you and the site you visit to steal your personal information.


A proxy server or a VPN, which stands for virtual private network, is basically a cloaking third-party that stands between you and the entire Internet, including your ISP. The best VPN services, that often charge a very small monthly fee. Encrypt everything leaving and coming back to your computer, so not even your ISP knows what site you are visiting and what information and content you are transmitting.


Here’s how it works. When you are connected to a VPN server, data leaves your computer encrypted and travels directly to VPN services server. From there, your data continues to the website you are visiting. Let’s say that the VPN server you are using is physically located in New York City, while you are in Beijing China. Then, you visit a particular website. That website you visit is going to think that you are actually in New York City, when you are really in Beijing China.


Likewise, if you are a student in a school or an employee in a company office that blocks Facebook, you can circumvent the block by using a VPN server. When you are connected to a VPN server and visit a blocked website, such as Facebook, your employer’s IP system has no idea that you are visiting Facebook. It thinks that you are connected to some server. That server is the VPN server and it is receiving all the information from Facebook, encrypting it, and then sending it to your computer in your office.


I often use VPN servers when I’m in the coffee shop or on any public Internet connection. Public Internet connections are often very vulnerable. Users on public Wi-Fi are easy targets for skilled hackers. However, if you are using a VPN server, then hackers will not be able to access any data between your computer in the Internet, as it will all be encrypted gibberish.


In addition to sharing resources on proxy sites and VPN servers, will also share information on how to avoid falling victim to hackers and identity theft.
