Frequently asked questions about proxy sites.

  1. What is a proxy site?
    • A proxy site is a website that acts as an intermediary between you and the sites you visit. All information sent to and from the visited site, is routed through the proxy website - with your personal information either removed or encoded to protect your privacy.
    • Proxy websites also prevent the computer you are using from accessing information about the sites you are visiting. This can be useful when using a public computer to browse the internet.
