If you think that you can surf worldwide web safely and anonymously you are terribly wrong. It is very simple to prove that. Aren’t your e-mail spammed with tons of advertisement? It shows that your personal data are not secure. How to secure yourself from such an unwanted intrusion?
All the spammers and other strangers use victim’s IP address. With each jump, your personal data are being transmitted to a side web-server. Not only the users with a static IP have this problem but even the users with a dynamic IP.
Dynamic IP means using some random IPs from a static address pool granted by your internet service provider. Looks like that frequent IP address change can help you cover your tracks, but internet service provider will save all the data of all the IP attachments.
Website owners are able to request user information from almost any internet provider. It means that some third parties may obtain your phone number or even your passport data. The only way out of this situation is to reliably mask your connection data.
One of the most common and effective ways to mask your IP is to pay for a quality proxy-server usage. Using this application you act through a mediator, that shows its (or distorted user’s) IP to a web-server to secure your PC’s real IP. There are several proxy types depending on their function. Standard proxies are badly suited for anonymous work, so they are being used for caching mostly. If you want to make your internet surfing really safe and anonymous you should use distorting or anonymous proxies.
Due to fast spread and quickly growing popularity of proxies many internet resources started to sell such applications. It is hard to find a good free product now. But a month of using a reliable proxy will cost a few dollars charge only and all the additional services and technical support will compensate all the costs. But proxy-servers are saving your personal data too and can give it to website owners. How to prevent this data leakage? The only way out of this situation is to use a chain of proxy-servers. This will affect in a small decrease of connection speed but your anonymity level will grow. If any web-server will try to access your data it will be forced to track you through all the proxies in the chain. It will certainly take some time, and all the data that goes through the chain are stored for some limited time (up to 3 months).
