You’ve probably already heard about the great things proxies can do for you, but you may also have questions–can proxy servers see your passwords? Can the owner of a proxy monitor your data? How can you be sure your connection is really secure? The answers are not always simple, but here at Proxy Server, we believe information is power. The key to making good decisions about security is understanding how a proxy server works under the hood, so let’s start there.

A proxy server simply provides an intermediate connection between you and a website you want to access. Although it might help you unblock sites or mask your IP address, there’s nothing inherently secure about a proxy. If you send data like a password or a credit card number to a website without encrypting it, anyone who intercepts it will have full access. The same goes for a proxy–if you’re sending your data unencrypted, it will pass through the proxy server in plain text.

There are plenty of safe proxies out there, but there are also plenty of malicious ones that can see the passwords you send through them, and more. They may also monitor your IP address when returning requests, along with details about the information you’re accessing. Sometimes this is no big deal, like if you’re simply watching videos on Youtube. But if you’re accessing sensitive or private information, like your bank account, this can put you in danger of identity theft. Fortunately, many sites today support SSL/TLS encryption. When you access a site, look for a little green lock next to the URL, which should begin with “HTTPS.” If it’s there, any data you send will be encrypted and unreadable to a proxy server (and everyone else, too). There are even browser plugins like HTTPS Everywhere to ensure that you’re connecting securely on every site that supports it.

Proxy Server Pro works a little bit differently. It’s a VPN, not just a proxy, meaning that your data is encrypted by the app on your computer, and tunneled through our server before being decrypted by the site you intend to send it to. This is known as end-to-end encryption, and it’s critical to a private browsing experience. SSL/TLS provides a similar level of security, but not every site supports it.

With Proxy Server Pro, you can connect to any site on any network–even public WiFi–without worrying about who’s watching. The data you share should be up to you, not the sites you visit. Proxy Server Pro allows you to take control of your privacy and browse the internet safely.
