Proxy server is basically another computer which serves as a hub through which internet requests are processed.

For instance, YouTube and WikiPedia is Banned In Pakistan but still people gets access to the site by changing the proxy of their network. So, that is how a proxy works. Plus, to remove your last name in facebook you need to change your proxy to an Indonesian one. Why to do that? Because liberty is given only to the Indonesians to have NO-Surname account.

For that  the solution is to just changing your proxy to an Indonesian one.

But how to get the Indonesian proxy? Simple tho! Just typing the keywords “indonesian proxy list” on Google will do your job. Hope, by now you got some little knowledge on the working of the Proxy!

I told you that proxy is used to browse banned sites too. If you don’t want to change the proxy settings of your internet then you can also use some free proxy sites. In those sites what you need to do is just enter the site name and enjoy unlimited browsing. The two best free proxy sites I have been using for years are:

  • https://www.ninjaproxy.ninja
  • https://hide.me/en/proxy

Copy this and paste it in your browser and then enjoy unlimited anonymous surfing from other countries. I basically use these sites for making wapka phishing sites as wapka is banned in many countries, including ours too.
