Who needs private proxies? Why should we be concerned about private proxies? You are right, you shouldn’t be concern about private proxies. You don’t need to care about them, but you should care about your personal and business privacy.
Even if you don’t have anything to hide, do you really want to feel like inside the Big Brother house? Just Google “online privacy hack” to understand the magnitude of this issue. As USNews mentions, most web companies failed to guarantee your privacy.
If most websites can not guarantee your online privacy, instead of taking a passive approach to security, you should be actively involved and trying to mitigate as many security risks as possible.
ANONYMITY IS SAFETY
One way to be safe online is for your data flow to be untraceable and ideally 100% anonymous. Here is where those private proxies that we shouldn’t care about come into play. Making your personal or business Internet connection almost impossible to expose and to trace, you make it safe.
From your personal habits to your company emails and spreadsheets, almost 95% of the information you use and generate is sent online. This information includes your bank account, your schedule, when you leave home or when you get home or your next meeting. In other words, your life.
For you safety, anonymity is key. By staying anonymous you can truly protect your privacy. By ignoring your online privacy you risk running into serious problems.
IGNORANCE IS BLISS… FOR HACKERS
The devil’s greatest trick was to make you think it doesn’t exist. In other words, just because a threat is invisible, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Anybody can become a hacker. Even a beginner in hacking can create havoc and by the time they are stopped, they can cause you great damages.
Even your neighbor can create a key-logger and monitor your online activity. He doesn’t need to be a great hacker to do it. It takes a 5 minutes video on Youtube to learn how to create one. If doing damage is so easy, it should be a concern for almost everybody online.
If you find a hacker ask him how is his activity going on and he will say hacking feels like 1995. Easy and with a lot of potential targets online.
Why then are hackers so confident for their activity in 2016? Because in online information flow nothing changed in the last 20 years. You might have a faster and more powerful PC or smart phone, but once the information gets sent it is for everyone to grab.
They see even greater opportunity in the future as almost everybody is connected to the Internet. Plenty of fish in the hackers’ tank.
One way hackers can do damage is by monitoring your personal and business activity. Your easy way to stay safe is to be private and fly under the radar.
REVERSE ENGINEERING ON YOUR ONLINE BEHAVIOUR
A hacker’s ultimate goal is to monitor you activity to gain financial or business information to monetize at a later date.
If you run an online business you noticed how easy is for tools like Alexa or Google Analytics to monitor a website’s user interaction. These two tools are be considered online marvels by marketers and entrepreneurs.
The issue is that every tool or process engineered can be also reverse engineered. When reverse engineering is applied with malicious intent, the results tend to be disastrous. Based on these tools principles, somebody can monitor your online behavior step by step.
This somebody might not be a hacker hidden in his dorm room, but he might be your business competitor trying to learn and understand every business step and process you make. As most businesses are based on a strategic advantage, risking disclosing it is the equivalent to giving your business away for free. Risking loosing a business because of ignorance is not a good cocktail party conversation.
A FINAL WORD, IF PROXY WILL RULE THE WORLD
Based on the large number of hacking scandals and security threats, the best way for your online information to be safe is to be anonymous.
With almost everybody online and with the increasing quantify of data flowing around the Internet, the general public’s ignorance regarding online security is a great opportunity for hackers. The law of averages plays into hackers’ favor. The greater the number of connected devices, the greater their opportunity to hack and steal valuable information.
The easiness to create online tools for monitoring allows to almost anybody with minimal coding skills to create and execute a malicious software.
We can not predict the future, but based on the growing number of security concerns, private proxies will become a mainstream tool in your online experience. The same as using windows curtains for the privacy of your home, private proxies will become as ubiquitous for your online experience as that pair of curtains on your window.
So yes, private proxies can rule the world of online world if security threats will continue in the future.
