No, it’s not. In fact, proxy servers severely compromise your privacy by sending your passwords and login information to the proxy owner.

    No, it’s a great way to get your identity stolen and your data scanned and compiled into databases all over the world.

    Lots of free proxies have malware as well.

    Hotspot shield is run by a big advertising company, Anchor Free, that boast about being able to geo target people and provide this information to their clients. Where do you think they get this from, by protecting your privacy or invading your privacy?

    All this stuff costs a lot of money. If it’s free you can count on them making money off you by stealing and using your personal information.

    Open the wallet and pay for a safe an reliable service. Proxies leak data because they were never designed to secure your privacy. Just redirect traffic. Use a Personal VPN like http://www.surfbouncer.com

    Proxies are slow. I highly recommend using a V P N service. Here is my favorite one:
