One of the Best Proxies Without Subnets (Undetectable)
A proxy is a superb way to protect yourself online. As the world becomes more connected, safeguarding your personal information is essential. But what about when you need more protection than what a standard proxy can provide?
There is a class of undetectable, elite proxies that do not disclose specific information like regular proxies.Let’s discuss some of the fundamentals of how elite proxies work and when you might want an undetectable proxy over the usual fare.
Differences Between Regular and Undetectable Proxies
There are plenty of proxies to choose from today, but not all proxies offer the same protection. Some proxies are little more than relays, offering no extra protection whatsoever. Even some so-called anonymous proxies still announce themselves and volunteer some information via HTTP headers.
Three headers can identify a proxy (and you) to a host. These headers are:
- HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR identifies your IP address as the source of traffic.
- HTTP_VIA identifies the proxy’s IP address and software used.
- REMOTE_ADDR can be either your IP address or that of the proxy (see below).
As mentioned, proxies can behave in various ways, and some are more secure than others. We can see from these headers that a proxy acting merely as a relay offers no privacy protection. A relay proxy will divulge your IP address in the HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR and possibly the REMOTE_ADDR header. Additionally, a standard proxy will identify its usage through the HTTP_VIA header, letting the host know that you are using a proxy.
Advantages of a Subnet-Independent Proxy
The main benefit of a subnet-independent proxy (also called an elite anonymous proxy) is complete transparency from an HTTP connection standpoint. To any host, you will appear as any other user, but with total privacy.
The anonymity and transparency of an elite proxy have additional side benefits as well. Some websites and services may deny access if a proxy is detected. Banks, gambling websites, and online stores could potentially restrict access for security reasons. Yet, there are times when you need to access these websites while maintaining extra privacy through a proxy. In such cases, an elite proxy is a perfect solution.
Another advantage of subnet-independent proxies is the ability to connect to other regions without sacrificing privacy. Streaming region-specific content requires a fast, stable, and genuinely private proxy to be successful. A simple relay proxy would not work due to subnets being quickly detected and banned by the host.
Elite proxies offer superior protection by leaving the header information completely blank or using their own data, appearing as non-proxy traffic. This level of anonymity is essential for personal security, as well as for running scripts or bots.
An undetectable elite proxy is entirely transparent during internet communication. Even if a web server checks the headers mentioned above, it should never see anything out of the ordinary. Most undetectable proxies will not populate the HTTP_VIA or HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR headers and set the proxy’s IP in REMOTE_ADDR. This configuration makes it appear to be a regular un-proxied user and should never trip any proxy restrictions or blocks.
