  • Frequently asked questions ~ The proxy server should not slow down your access beyond possibly a second or two. If a website fails to load, disable the proxy server. ~ Regarding privacy: We will not collect keystrokes. None of your personally identifying information will be recorded.
  • Frequently asked questions (continued) ~ If using multiple computers, please feel free to use our proxy server for each of them (even at the same time). ~ If you forget the password, or the password does not work, click “ c ancel ” when prompted for a password, enter the settings menu, and select “ n o proxy ” to disable the proxy server. Please send us an e-mail to receive a new password.
