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. ~ We will not collect keystrokes. None of your personally identifying information will be recorded. ~ If using multiple computers, please feel free to use our proxy server for each of them (even at the same time).
