Thanks, dear Chrispcritters, you are making my day...Chrispcritters wrote: ↑Tue Feb 20, 2018 9:06 amHere are the basics:
By using a proxy server your web traffic is being forwarded through the proxy. It does not provide additional security to your web traffic. The data being sent between you and the proxy server is not specifically encrypted. Many proxies are actually compromised machines...
When you are using a VPN all the traffic between you and the VPN server is encrypted.
