Proxies & VPNs

When A User Bypasses Filtering And Targeting Systems

A VPN (otherwise known as a Virtual Private Network) adds a layer of privacy and security to your internet experience. When you connect to the internet via a VPN, all of your internet traffic is routed through an encrypted remote server. Because a VPN functions at the network level, its use extends far beyond your web browser. Any internet-dependent programs and applications you might use on your devices are bolstered by its encryption. You don’t have to configure anything individually; everything is automatically protected as soon as you establish a connection.



What Is Proxy?

A proxy operates like a web filter. Web proxy settings are applied to your browser of choice, whether it be Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or an alternative. Then, your web browsing is mediated by a remote server. When using a proxy server, you will appear as though you are browsing from the mediating server’s location - but only when browsing the internet. Your IP address will change in your browser of choice, but this change will not be applied to your entire internet connection. In some cases, you may be able to setup a proxy for other applications, but even so, this can only be done individually for each application, and not at the network level. Additionally, unlike VPN, proxy servers don’t offer encrypted protection.
