idcloak launches a new YouTube Proxy Unblocker which bypasses local blocks both of the site as a whole and regional restrictions on the site itself. The web-based tool connects the user to a remote, high-anonymity proxy server in a new location where restrictions no longer exist.
idcloak says the service stands out from other similar services for its speed and reliability. The company also does not use the proxy as a platform for third-party advertising.
“We paid special attention to creating a proxy tool that fully supports YouTube,” says Robin Welles, senior researcher at idcloak. “For this we needed compatibility with the site and high speeds. After much testing and tweaking, we believe we got there. We now have a high-performance, fully-functioning YouTube unblocker service. And we decided at the beginning that we would not hamper user experience with annoying pop-up ads.”
If idcloak does not use the proxy as a platform for ad-generated revenue, what is the company’s motivation for the release?
Welles explains it is primarily about raising awareness, “Few people even know about the existence of web proxies, which is astonishing when you look at how useful the technology is, alongside the fact there are many free services out there. Our company is about to release a high-grade proxy unblocker – the idcloak VPN proxy – and it is natural that in the lead up to the release we should present a free service that introduces our future user base to the concept of proxy unblocking.”
The proxy runs from the idcloak site and the user may select a server in Japan, the UK or the US. Welles speaks of the importance of being able to choose server location. “In many cases the US server is required to unblock videos unavailable in a particular country, but for users behind blocks at work, for example, there is no need to take the connection to the US if, say, Japan or the UK is nearer. Travelling long distances increases the chance of running into traffic that will slow down data transfer.”
