Proxy Server

What is a proxy server?

A proxy server is an intermediary between your device and the internet. It serves as a gateway for requests, handles data traffic, and provides anonymity and security.

How does a proxy server work?

A proxy server receives a user request, forwards it to the target websites, and then relays the response. It masks the user’s IP address and utilizes a proxy address to represent the user.
