Fast Proxy Server List Gives NSA Surveillance Protection to Web Browsers

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
idcloak launches a Fast Proxy Server List for internet users wishing to browse sites without being observed by government surveillance monitors. Users simply configure a browser to connect to a medium or high anonymity proxy in the list (preferably based in an alternative country). From that point on, their ISP and any intermediary taps will only see encrypted data pass between the users computer and the proxy server, while the out-traffic from the proxy will be stripped of the users IP address.
This protection is enhanced if the user takes additional precautions not to divulge their identity in other ways, such as through cookies, ETags and browser fingerprints.
Due to the high transfer rates of the proxies on the list, Welles says web browsing speeds will suffer hardly at all, The user should notice hardly any latency and have no problem even with bandwidth-heavy tasks like streaming video. The only potential pitfalls are if public proxies do go down or become congested over time. Then the user just needs to choose another proxy IP address from the list.
The proxy list updates continuously, with the fastest proxies of almost 2000 in the idcloak database shown first. The lists filter and sort settings save the user time when switching to a new proxy. You instantly know which proxies are the quickest.
One issue that follows public proxy use, however, is the anonymity of the proxy administrators. We have no practical way of vetting the owners of the proxy. We therefore recommend that users do not carry out highly private or sensitive activity through the proxies.
The idcloak secure VPN, to be released in September 2013, is designed to offer peace of mind of mind to the privacy-conscious: running entirely on in-house servers and delivering military-grade security and privacy protection.
