Proxy servers are used by people, especially students and people in workplace, to bypass censors or firewalls set by the system administrators. So, even if the system admin blocks websites such as MySpace, Orkut or Facebook, you can sort of unblock the censor settings by using a web proxy.
The most important use of proxy services, however, is the security it provides to the common user. Sometimes it is recommended to browse using web proxies because they don’t leak any information about your IP, bank accounts to third parties or hacking tools. Interesting it may sound that the same technology that is used by hackers to steal info is held against them with a web proxy.
Most web proxies are accessible for free, even though some others charge the users a fee. However, while using one, make sure that it is not known to the censor who configures the firewalls.
