Proxy Authority

A proxy site is a website which allows users to surf the internet freely through bypassing the filters that are in place they act as a kind of buffer. A proxy server will hide your IP address from the source website while proving you with general information. Proxy sites are in high demand due to the increased security being put in place at schools and workplaces by administrators. The increased amount of free proxies allows internet surfers the opportunity to anonymously surf their favorite websites whether this be Facebook, Twitter or another social networking site with the use of a proxy server.

Many proxy servers come and go, so finding a proxy server that is consistently available and effective from your network can be a real time saver. The proxy servers discussed here have great track records for availability.

What is a Proxy Site

Why Use a Proxy Site

A proxy site (web proxy or HTTP proxy) can unblock websites and help you stay anonymous online. This proxy site allows gives you unblocked access to blocked sites. Schools and colleges have Internet filters that block many cool websites and companies have corporate firewalls. Online games and gaming sites, social networking and chat sites, video and file sharing sites and news and blog sites are targeted. HTTP proxies can bypass web filters and access blocked sites without getting caught!

Proxy servers allow you to bypass filters that can prevent your business applications from accessing the Internet freely. The Proxy service will also hide your true local IP address.

      Thank you for this lens. I also prefer which uses SSL 443 port for proxying the content so it's more secure and unblockable on corporate firewalls. Thanks again.

      Free privacy tools for Firefox exist, like AutoProxy, that offer similar functionality. You can also achieve better privacy by installing additional privacy add-ons like NoScript or BlockSite. Thanks.
