Is your favourite website blocked at school or office? don’t worry, a Proxy Server can help you access blocked websites and services by routing all the network traffic through its own network. Thus you can easily bypass all network restrictions by making use of a proxy server. It also helps you surf the Internet anonymously by masking your IP address by its own IP address.
Here are some other benefits —
- It helps saves bandwidth by caching websites.
- It can also strip irritating adverts from the websites.
- It can block malicious websites / code present on them.
However using a Proxy server may also result in compromise on the data flowing through its network. Hence caution is advised while using Proxy server networks.
