What is a proxy?

A proxy is a server "middle man" that connects users to other servers. For example, every time you access a website, your server is accessing information from the website's server. When using a proxy, you are connecting to a different IP (or location) and that location is connecting to the website, therefore masking your online identity. Proxies are commonly used with your computer's network connections settings, proxy-switching browser extensions or software that involves web crawling.
