Why you need a proxy for your browser?

  • In this case, let us consider Chrome as your browser. With that noted, here are the perks of using a proxy with Chrome.

  • It helps you bypass content and sites that are restricted in your area. Thus, if a certain website is delimited in your state, a proxy can help you access it anonymously.

  • While using a proxy, you do not reveal your current location and IP address. Therefore, it is possible to do a lot of stuff online without it being linked to you or without any traces of you. You leverage residential IP proxy.

  • If you want to monitor your company or kid's activities anonymously, a proxy server comes in handy.

  • It guards your privacy and perks up your PC security by encrypting all requests from your computer.
