Description

Web VPN is free proxy service that unblocks sites and connects to the US proxy server. You may not know it (and once you do not know it, it may not bother you), but every time you reach out to a website or connect with anyone online, your online connection gives your computer "address" to the site/person you're connecting with. Why? So that you the other end knows how to send information (a Web page, email, etc.) back to your computer...to you. That address is your public IP address. IP stands for Internet Protocol. Want to see yours right now? Just go here to our home page and it will be there. Without an IP address, you wouldn't be able to do any Internet/online activity and others online wouldn't be able to reach you. It is how you connect to the world. Where does your IP address come from? You can thank your Internet Service Provider (AT&T, Comcast, Verizon, etc.) for your IP address at home, as well as for your Internet connection. Your smart device also uses an IP address when you're browsing the web or using an app. Most people are completely happy with how all of that works. But there are few realities about public IP addresses that does bother some people: Your IP address identifies where you are in the world, sometimes to the street level. It can be used by websites to block you from accessing their content. It ultimately ties your name and home address to your IP address, because someone is paying for an Internet connection at a specific location. But there are a few ways you can get around those realities, and one them is to use a proxy service or proxy server (people simply say "proxy.") A proxy server acts as a gateway between you and the internet. It's an intermediary server separating end users from the websites they browse. Free proxy can be a great alternative to a free VPN if you don't need protection on the operating system level.
