Proxy and VPN - what are the differences?
VPN and proxy are two fairly common technologies that are familiar to many modern users. If you are active on the Internet, do not like restrictions and blocks-it means that you have also heard about them. With the help of such services, people remain anonymous when using sites and programs, work with multi-accounts, social networks, messengers, etc.And of course freely open access to websites that are prohibited for various reasons.

It is worth noting that not everyone understands the difference between a VPN and a proxy, and they confuse these concepts. We already have an informational article on VPN and everything related to THIS technology. We will not repeat it, just follow the link and be sure to read the material – everything is described in detail there. Well, in short, VPN is a subtle configuration tool that bypasses censorship, takes care of your security and anonymity, using high-level encryption and various protocols (PPTP, L2TP, IKEv2, SSTP, SoftEther, etc.).

What is a proxy
Proxy in English means "Deputy".

A proxy server is a kind of bridge (additional server) between the user and the global Internet network that "directs" traffic through its IP address, not through yours. Due to this, you get access to blocked sites, safely bypassing bans and restrictions. It's simple enough, isn't it? The only nuance and in fact a significant (but not a single) disadvantage of this service is that the proxy server does not use encryption to protect traffic (as the VPN "does").

By IP-address you can find out a lot. If you want to keep privacy on the Web you need to change it. A VPN hides your current location and the name of your Internet service provider making your surfing completely anonymous. Your personal data and actions on the Web will be reliably protected: you can surf the Internet without worrying about security.

A proxy is a privacy tool that hides your IP address and replaces your location on the Internet. Unlike a VPN, a proxy does not need to download a client application, and protection applies only to a specific program and not to the entire network.

Most Internet users are already facing censorship without even realizing it. While in some of the more liberal countries, bans apply to domains related to criminal activities, such as drug or human trafficking, some providers use their position to prohibit their users from accessing much more innocuous websites that may belong to their competitors. or any other enterprises with which the provider does not agree.

The most reasonable fee for VPN services is up to ten dollars, but even so, you will need to make sure that the provider clearly indicates what kind of protection it offers, in how many countries it has servers and, more importantly, how you can contact him. Reliable VPN providers are professionals who are proud of their work and are simply eager to demonstrate what they can offer and clearly tell you exactly how you can contact them, since they want you to always use their services.

Most people have used proxies or anonymizers at least once in their life to access content in their browser. A similar principle works and VPN for the browser is just as simple, only better and more reliable. When you go to China you can’t do without a VPN if you want to access services that are disabled on the territory of the country but you can not install a full-fledged program and do without an extension for the browser if you have enough of its capabilities. The VPN extension for the browser does not always provide high-quality encryption if this is not a solution from leading brands and does not always work in China, anonymizers actively ban and disable proxies. But if it starts with changing the IP address, it usually copes with it, and this is exactly what users need. I recommend installing paid versions of VPN for other countries, this is not so critical, but for China very much. Because the great firewall often bans and closes simple free services, and the powerful VPN https://topvpn.tw/
is able to protect its channels and guarantee access to the network even during strong attacks. And as a bonus, they usually have ad blocking features, traffic protection, encryption, and much more.
