Facts about free web proxies

Millions of new web proxies are created
every day and most of these do not last more than 2 days. This is primarily
because the proxy servers get blacklisted because of malicious use or even over
use. Most of the free proxies floating around in the web actually are used
proxies which have already been blacklisted or are on the verge of it. There is
also an increased security risk with the free proxies because it is possible
that they originate from a hack site. If the free proxies are not associated
with a reputed site (example Hidemyass), the likelihood of it being a hack
proxy is almost 70%.

There are reliable free proxy sites on the
internet but even they cannot guarantee usability of a proxy at any given point
of time because free proxies get scraped on a mass scale and get used
instantly. Web automation software are the main users of free web proxies.
These applications are programmed to automatically pick up any free proxy,
check its authenticity and then immediately start using if it is found to be
working. Individual browsers who use free proxies have very little chance of
finding proxies that have not gone through the grind of web applications. So,
they are likely to find only 1 out of 4 proxies working.

It is also estimated that more than 40% of
individual free proxy users get affected because of hack proxies. It is always
better to run these free proxies through a proxy checker before using them.
