I have seen many of the users talking about PROXY and VPN. A very small effort from my side to make it crystal clear:
What is Proxy:
Its the process of hiding your original identity or IP address. Using proxy/VPN, you will receive a different IP address which hides your actual IP. Its hard to tell where actually you are from if you are using Proxy or VPN.
Possibilities of VPN/PROXY
- It hides your original identity
- it helps to browse the internet anonymously
- It helps you to send email anonymously
- It helps you to think someone else that you are from different country
You —————————————-> browse—————————->Microworkers
your IP (188.8.131.52 )————–>Microworker (This IP is from Algeria)
Here any server can identifies that you are from Algeria, because your IP is from Algeria.
Now use Proxy:
You —————————————-> Proxy—————————->Microworkers
Your IP (184.108.40.206 )——->220.127.116.11 (UK proxy)———–>Microworker (This IP is from UK)
Microworkers thinks that you are from UK although you are browsing from Algeria, Because your actual IP will be masked by the new proxy IP.
To be contd…..
Please comment/like if you want more abt this.
I will write more about it, and will also include
- How to use
- How to be safe
- How Microworkers or similar sites easily identifies PROXY
- difference between VPN and Proxy etc
