Proxy detect tool
Our proxy-detect tool tries to analyze your HTTP connection and checks if your computer is behind a proxy server. If proxy detected, we'll provide the proxy details.
Note: There are many different types of proxies out there, some will use good techniques to be highly anonymous. In case our system is not able to detect your proxy, this does not explicitly confirm that there is no proxy used. Many other online tools might still be able to detect it.
Types of proxies
The main role of any proxy is that it will support you keep your privacy like your IP and it also facilitates in getting at some domains on the net that could be blocked for instance in work, libraries, schools and so on.
There are many different kinds of proxy servers out there, but the following are usually known proxies.
- Elite Proxy (High Anonymous) - Your proxy is completely untraceable and your genuine IP will remain hidden. The server you connect to will have no knowledge you’re using a proxy. These are the top proxies you will find and the level of privacy and quality is extraordinary.
- Anonymous Proxy - An anonymous proxy server also known as the web proxy, generally tries to anonymize web surfing by hiding the original IP address of the end user. This type of proxy server is normally difficult to track and provides sound anonymity for most users.
- Transparent Proxy - A transparent proxy is a server that satisfies the definition of a proxy, but does not impose any local policies. It means that it does not add, delete or modify attributes or change information within messages it forwards. These are commonly used for their ability to cache websites and do not efficiently provide any privacy to those who use them. However, the usage of a transparent proxy will catch you around simple IP bans. Further, your web browser does not need special configuration and the cache is clear to the end-user. This is also known as the transparent forward proxy.
- Reverse proxy - A reverse proxy is another common form of a proxy server and is frequently used to pass requests from the Internet, through a firewall to out-of-the-way, private networks. It is used to stop Internet clients from having direct, unmonitored access to sensitive data residing on content servers on the remote network, or intranet. If caching is enabled, a reverse proxy can also minimize network traffic by serving cached info rather than passing all requests to real content servers.
