    Proxy servers are used for privacy rights and protect your personal data and identity theft. Because information is often not well protected by those we are supposed to trust. I think its a good idea to protect children since an address can now easily be pinpointed. It’s also used by people who are in countries that prevent or censor information by a firewall. It also helps Internet users in countries without safe access to free media ie China. Mike is discussing a business point of view.
