Proxy Check Tool
Our Proxy Check Tool analyzes your connection to our servers to see if a proxy is detected. If we detect a proxy, we show you the proxy details. If a proxy not detected, the message "No Proxy Detected" then displayed.
Why Use Our Proxy Check Tool?
Using our free, high-speed proxy checker instantly provides your proxy details. Checking your proxy is great for understand just how anonymous you appear on the Internet. Essentially, what our proxy check tool can see, anyone else on the Internet can see.
In general, there are three different types of proxy – transparent proxies, anonymous proxies, and elite proxies:
- Transparent proxies don’t hide your real IP address. They may seem useless at first glance, but they are helpful for passing by local firewalls that may block access or slow down your connection.
- Anonymous proxies hide your real IP address. This means the actual location blocked when you use an anonymous proxy. This type of proxy is great for anonymity, but sacrifices speed. Additionally, some sites may have firewalls that can detect those using anonymous proxies.
- Elite proxies have the advantages of anonymous proxies with an additional benefit. They help you conceal using a proxy at all, so not stopped by any firewalls. However, because they provide complete privacy, they are typically slower due to frequent reloads.
Do We Detect All Proxies?
No. Not all proxies pass along detectable information. Some proxies are very good at hiding this information which is great for the user. However, just because we may show "No Proxy Detected" doesn't mean someone else can't detect the same proxy.
What If A Proxy Is Detected?
If you're intentions are to go through a proxy and we detect it, maybe it's not a big deal to you. If you wish to remain anonymous, perhaps a VPN is better suited to handle your needs. What if you don't know you're going through a proxy and we detect one? This is not uncommon and not necessarily a bad thing. Instead, this is most likely how your Internet Service Provider controls traffic on their network.
