Microsoft Edge is the leading browser and it does support compatible Microsoft Edge proxy. In fact, people use proxies for a number of reasons, and some of them are:
To Surf Anonymously
Proxies are known for their ability to anonymize the user or the web traffic. It is important to use the edge proxy, especially if you are a professional or an employee and carrying out any office task.
People use proxies to hide their identity, their sources, their partners and their clients. Moreover, you can also protect your current development and research by using the edge proxy or by surfing anonymously on the internet.
By-Pass Country Specific Content
A lot of content is hidden from us or is not accessible to us due to the geo restrictions and regulations, mostly due to the copyright and network regulations. Using an edge proxy basically hides your IP address and also the identity so the sites cannot access your location.
Hence, allowing you to by-pass the country specific restrictive content. For instance, the good example of it is the Now TV outside the UK. Moreover, people are also able to bypass the network restricted content, in educational institutes, such as the schools.
To Hide Identity
This is one of the best advantages of using the Microsoft edge proxy or any other kind of proxy. It hides your identity or the IP address. This way, the website you are visiting is not able to log into your location or the IP address. Hence, you can browse anonymously.
This can protect your identity and from the cyber criminals or hackers who can go the extra mile and can steal your information using the IP address.
