    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.

    Hi i need help…I have 2 computers, a laptop and a desktop. Lately my laptop has more ping than the desktop espically on my online games..I confirmed this by playing the online game called s4 and i created a room for my 2 computers…my laptop has more ping and for som reason beside the ping mark there (R) (T)..so im wondering if my laptop has a different IP Adresss?

    P.S. Proxy server don’t necessarily cache data, some only certain data types and some none at all. Please don’t mislead people.
