Unfortunately there is something about the word “FREE” that turns a normally sane person’s brain completely off. It is the ultimate bait word, the proverbial “raw meat” in a bear trap.

Many anonymous proxies earn cash by showing Google ads on the pages as you use their proxy.

Unfortunately some of these free web proxies web sites have flash-based ads that redirect surfers to malware scan sites. These sites then proceeded to “scan” computers while actually downloading malware in hidden folders on the hard drive.

You are much better off when you follow the old saying that “if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”
Therefore the only true 'BS free' proxy, is one you pay for.

Just some food for thought nessa
