Transparent, Anonymous Proxy Server List and Proxy Server Risks | My Own Ways.

Proxy Server Risks

Using of proxy servers without the express permission from the owner of the proxy server may be illegal in some countries. And one more thing to keep in mind do not use a proxy server for activities that require your personal data, such as online banking, email accounts, etc. because all data sent to the service being used must pass through the proxy server before being sent to the service, mostly in unencrypted form. It is therefore possible, and has been demonstrated, for a malicious proxy server to record everything sent to the proxy (including unencrypted logins and passwords). However, more traces will be left on the intermediate hops, which could be used or offered up to trace the user’s activities. If the policies and administrators of these other proxies are unknown, the user may fall victim to a false sense of security just because those details are out of sight and mind. Use at your own risk.
