Anonymity and blocking on the Internet

The modern development of the Internet gives rise to the emergence of new technologies every day. In general, the Internet has long been called a separate reality, which is developing in parallel. Many people spend a lot of time on the Internet, and some of them, in general, practically live there. And they are quite happy with it. They work there, have fun, communicate. Even more and more people purchase products via the Internet. It’s hard to say if it’s bad or not. Everyone decides for himself. But the fact that it is convenient and saves a lot of time is unambiguous. But along with the great benefits and all the advantages of the Internet, there is also a negative side of it. There are also a huge number of cybercriminals and fraudsters on the Internet who seek to deceive users with the aim of various types of profit. In addition, various kinds of terrorists also recruit people over the Internet. And all this is not said yet about the millions of sites with pirated software, movies and music. Different states, in turn, are trying to fight criminals online. They block fraudulent and pirate websites by hundreds and thousands, trying to save illiterate and inattentive gullible users from losing money.

But there are still ways to bypass these blockages. For example, using proxy technology. There are many companies, for example, that sell proxy servers for any country at a very inexpensive price. The essence of this technology is that it provides user anonymity. For example, if a certain site or resource is closed for Russian users, then an advanced user can buy a proxy server, for example, from Germany, and calmly go to this resource, since it seems as if he is a user from Germany, and not from Russia. Thus, a huge number of locks are bypassed through proxy servers. But this, of course, is difficult for ordinary users, so only advanced people use it, and as a rule, not at all to access criminal sites, but to access useful resources that, for one reason or another, are closed to any country. Or simply for the purpose of anonymity, which is increasingly appreciated on the Internet.
