WARNINGS ABOUT PROXIES
- The first major inconvenience that you'll run into with these publicly available settings is that they are very unreliable and it's hard to find ones that support secure connections.
- Because many public proxies lack SSL (secure connection) capability, there is the potential for abuse by criminals who seek to steal passwords or other sensitive information passing over the proxy.
- There might some legal permission issues about using public proxies, as it is difficult to know whether the proxy is truly "public", or if it is just a server that a careless admin left open, or if the server is open due to a hack or virus.
- Given these issues, you may eventually want to consider subscribing to a service that offers private servers with SSL connections. An example is: http://www.iprivacytools.com
