Question by mattizx1: How safe and secure are proxies? They say when you use a proxy you are actually viewing that site via… ?
They say when you use a proxy, so as to gain access to a blocked site, you are actually viewing that site via another computer or third party, but is there a possibility that third party can get your personal info like if you are typing your facebook password. Are you not in some way at the mercy and under the control of that third party? Don’t know much about the technical aspects of proxies and their capabilities. Just want my time online to be secure.

Usually it is encrypted, but there are weirdos who set up “proxies” to try and trick someone, hoping that the password for their mypace is also for their bank or a credit card. I would just wait until I was somewhere that I did not need a proxy to get into my accounts.
