This ought o be an interesting piece of writing for many readers because there are many things that we learn about for the first time because everyone has a PC or laptop at home.
We have learned many new things over the past year by being confined to the four walls of our home due to Covid-19 like cooking, gardening, electronics, fencing, etc. to name a few but what is important to note is that online shopping was in full flow even during this grave phase.
It is a moment of celebration whenever you get a new electronic item at home and none more so than when it is a mobile or laptop and when you add a strong Wi-Fi connection with updated settings, it is like icing on the cake and today we’ll talk about this bit in this article.
Installing a proxy server at home is a task that everyone should be aware of because it is one of the perks of having a strong internet connection at home with Wi-Fi signals functioning 24/7 without fail.
A proxy server is one that acts as an intermediary between your device and its internet connection, which is why it is a necessary prerequisite for installing a strong one where you have to put out a request to it and the server will deliver it to the web device.
The server will also reply back from the device to the user in order to confirm that the message has been conveyed but there is a catch in the story because there are many users that would like to keep anonymous online.
If you have a strong proxy server then the website will only detect the server’s identity and you because you are the user of the device in question but there is also a naughty streak engraved deep within the human psyche.
Youngsters are quite fond of adult content that they’re not allowed to watch while underage and there are certain websites that they’re restricted from accessing but having a proxy server will help them get into it by breaking the blockage mechanism.
This is a big reason why proxy servers have been called beastly by certain users but that doesn’t stop it from users installing them at home because every household with an internet connection needs to have one.
If you have a Windows 10 then it automatically detects proxy settings but if you have a connection only linked with the business network of your office organization then it is a different story as your system will not gain access to it.
