Proxy Chaining: Use for a More Secure Internet

There are times when you have to cloak your true IP address. It might be that you want to remain anonymous when you visit a particular website. Or your access to various social networking and entertainment sites has been blocked.

                                     
                        

The solution is to use Proxy Switcher for all the anonymous browsing needs. It can be used to avoid all sorts of limitations imposed by various sites. Be that a download site that limits amount of downloads. Or video site works only in a particular country - more often than not it gets defeated by the anonymous browsing features Proxy Switcher provides.

On top of that, if you used to manually change proxy settings Proxy Switcher provides a way to change them much faster and easier.

 
What is Proxy Server?

A proxy is a server that acts as a gateway between your computer and your destination. Proxy servers are used to stay anonymous over the internet. By using proxy server you can hide your real IP over the internet while surfing. 

User---------->[proxy]----------->[website]

the website will get the IP of the proxy not yours

 
What is Proxy Bouncing or Chaining? 

  

Proxy Bouncing is a phenomenon where as user can get connected to the destination by using multiple proxys and these proxys are randomly changed. That’s way this phenomenon is Proxy Bouncing. 

In simple term Proxy chaining is the use of more than 1 proxy servers to stay anonymous. You can use as many proxy servers as you can or want. The more you have, the more anonymous you will be. This can be shown like this..

 
USER------>Proxy 1----->Proxy 2 ----->Proxy 3 ------>Proxy4 ------> Destination

 
The user  first connect to Proxy1. After connecting to Proxy1, Now the user will connect to Proxy2, then, the user will connect to Proxy3, then the user will connect to Proxy4, and thus using N proxies, the user will then connect to website he want to use.

 
Advantages of Proxy Chaining:

To better understand how proxy chaining works I think it will be a better idea to share some of its advantages with you.

It is More Secure: Instead of connecting to the internet through just one proxy you will be able to access the internet through several proxies and as a result will enjoy better security.

It is More Reliable: Since you’re using more than one proxy it will be difficult to guess your IP and as a result difficult to hack into your network. Of course, this particular technique has its own vulnerabilities but it is more reliable than using just one proxy.

It is Less Stressful: You don’t have to worry about changing your proxy every hour. A good proxy chain can last longer before you start experiencing problems.


Disadvantages of Proxy Chaining:

Proxy chaining also has its own disadvantages and I think you should also be aware of them before we continue.
It Can Be Sometimes Slow: The thing about proxy chains is that if a particular proxy isn’t okay it might affect the entire proxy chain. In other words, if a particular proxy in the chain is broken or insecure there is a possibility your overall experience will also be affected.
It Can Take Time: You need to find a lot of proxies; not just proxies but working ones…this takes time and effort.

 
Proxy Chaining Applications:

Once you’re ready to get started the first step is to look for a good proxy list site like HideMyAss.com and to install applications that can help you enable the proxies. Below are two good proxy applications you might want to try.
