With the rise of online fraud and unwanted logins, online privacy has become extremely important these days. Nowadays we tend to save our card details, keep wallets online, store important official data and much more on our systems without knowing that these details and your online activity are prone to cyber and hacker attacks.
Therefore, some users prefer to use proxy servers to browse securely. A proxy server is an intermediate server that keeps users disconnected from the websites they visit. It works more like a filter and firewall that ensures that only safe data reaches you, thus protecting you from all the bad things happening on the internet.
