US Web Proxy Released by idcloak Makes Incognito Mode Complete

idcloak's new US web proxy prevents user footprints appearing on the net, This makes it the perfect partner for private browsing features on modern browsers, which remove digital footprints on a device.

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) June 21, 2013

idcloak’s latest anti-surveillance release, the free US web proxy, allows users to visit sites without leaving traces of their movements online. The company aims for the service to partner browser privacy features such as Incognito mode on Chrome and InPrivate Browsing on IE.

Whereas private browsing removes the digital trail on a user’s machine, the US web proxy makes sure no footprint is left on visited websites or with the Internet service providers (ISPs) providing the connection.

“Internet users activate their browser’s privacy mode because they don’t want others to see where they are going online,” explains tech researcher, Robin Welles, “but the only people they are successfully hiding from are those with access to their machine. Websites you visit, your ISP and most likely your government all have record of your IP address against the searches you do and the pages you visit. The third-party can then use track IP address technologies to follow you across a network of affiliate sites and, if they have access to your ISP’s registries, even match your ‘private browsing’ to your name and address. The private browsing function doesn’t prevent any of this. A web proxy does.”

The idcloak proxy eliminates two forms of data which makes a user’s activity private on the net. First it replaces the identifying IP address with one of its own, so sites only have record of visits from idcloak’s servers. Secondly, it offers levels of encryption that prevent any intermediary, like an ISP collecting data for the NSA, from seeing what content a user receives from the proxy. The ISP registry will show nothing more than repeated visits to idcloak.com.

Welles says browsers’ private browsing function still plays an important part in the privacy process, “The browsers must prevent cookies from being planted on your machine as they can also communicate identifiers to third parties. This means when you proxify your activity, you still need your browser’s support to make the private browsing complete.”
