Does a Socks5 Proxy reveal that you are using a proxy?

Question by G.: Does a Socks5 Proxy reveal that you are using a proxy?

I need to know if using a Socks5 proxy passes along that you are using a proxy.

I’d also like to know if it discloses your home IP address. I keep hearing that it’s like a high-anonymity proxy but I want to get more opinions.
Note: I already have access to socks, I don’t want links where I can buy more. Thanks.

Your ISP and/or network admin will know you’re using a proxy if they inspect the traffic. The distant end won’t have your IP but will know that you’re coming through a proxy if they care to find out. The proxy itself will know everything and the operator will surrender any records in response to a subpoena.
