Hide My IP by Socks Proxy

Socks proxy is versatile proxy for all your Internet usage while the http proxy can only be used for surfing. You can use socks proxy to send emails, transfer files, chat online, play games as well as surf websites.

Socks Proxy List

We recommend Socks Proxy Checker if you need many IP addresses for other programs such as ftp, skype and so on. It uses public socks proxy so it has hundreds of IP addresses. But public proxies are unstable. You have to update your proxy list frequently.

If you don't want to use the proxy software to download the socks proxy list or you aren't using Windows, you can buy the socks proxy list from buysocks5.com. The proxy list is same as the one of Socks Proxy Checker.

  • Advantage: Socks proxy supports https and high anonymity naturally. It has hundreds of IP addresses.
  • Shortcoming: Public proxies are unstable, need being updated frequently.
  • Audience: Best for the users who need many IP addresses but only use them for a while.
