Internet Security and Privacy has always been a concern for users as many websites or individuals with malicious intentions constantly seek weaknesses in PC and server security over the internet.
One of the most common processes through which information is compromised is by tracking, or browsing profiles. Sites that apply tracking gather visitor's information, such as IP address and browsing habits by collecting the URLs visited by the person that reaches the site. There are several marketing research organizations oriented to the internet that use this information in a legitimate form to understand Internet user profiles.
Although this process is considered harmless by many, some people believe that it nevertheless constitutes a privacy violation. On the other hand, websites that use tracking may have intentions that are not at all legitimate and may compromise visitor's personal information at a higher risk level.

For this reason, FindProxy.org also provides constantly updated articles related to proxy servers, anonymous proxy surfing, internet security, and internet privacy, in order to provide visitors to the site with information necessary to thoroughly understand how these proxies work and how to protect their personal information when accessing websites.
