Answer by Hex
A proxy is a remote server that you connect to in order to access the net or another network.
In other words, a proxy will let you connect your machine to another server. This server is also connected to the internet and you use their server to surf the net or to get to where you want to go. By downloading via a proxy, you’re doing what’s called an indirect-download. It’s usually ( 99% of the time ) slower than a direct-download but is proven to be a lot safer. Proxies can hide your IP address from snooping websites that might try to harm your machine. Though it’s still very possible for others to attack your machine even when using a remote host ( proxy ), it is still safer.
