Can proxy servers protect your identity? The answer isn’t as simple as you may think. Plenty of proxy sites advertise themselves as total security packages, when in fact, they only protect you against IP address-based tracking. This is not only dishonest–it can be dangerous. If you believe that a proxy is all you need to protect your identity, you may not be as careful as you should be. The short answer is yes, a proxy server can protect your identity, but it’s all you need to stay safe online.

Proxy servers are used to mask your IP address from sites that track your internet activity. But the internet is a complex network, and knowing someone’s IP address is not the only way to identify them. Even when using a proxy, browser plugins and extensions can leave fingerprints that can identify your device and vulnerabilities specific to it. Software like Java and Flash, which are very common on the internet, can also leave permanent cookies that may be used to identify you.

Tools like Panopticlick can show you just how vulnerable you may be without even realizing it. And all of these factors only measure technical security; the overwhelming majority of identity theft is committed through social engineering–no matter how powerful security software becomes, millions of people each year unknowingly give out their private information each year under false pretenses. This isn’t meant to frighten you–a proxy server will protect some parts of your identity, but there is much more to security than simply using a proxy.

The best identity protection is common sense–don’t visit sites you don’t recognize, never share your passwords, and check for SSL/TLS on every site that asks you for personal information. But it’s not all up to you, of course; with Proxy Server Pro, you can be well on your way to privacy and safety on any network.

Proxy Server Pro is a VPN, or virtual private network. This means it has the IP address-hiding capabilities of a regular proxy server plus encryption on every connection. Whether you’re at home or your favorite coffee shop, you can enter your passwords without worrying about who might be watching. We support AES encryption up to 256 bits–the same standard used for top secret government data–so no matter where you are, you can rest assured your data won’t fall into the wrong hands. Of course, this is just one step toward a private, secure browsing experience, and identity protection is an ongoing process. But with Proxy Server Pro, you can be sure you’re taking a step in the right direction.
