Editors' Review

+
This application enables you to surf the Web anonymously, although understanding its processes may prove difficult for novice users. Free ProxyWay Anonymous Surfing's multifaceted main window lets you create a proxy list for Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Netscape, and Opera, then checks them for high, transparent, or unknown anonymity levels. A painstakingly long visit to the program's help file is a must--just to get a jumpstart. To begin, you'll manually input proxies or enter a URL where proxies can be located automatically. At a snail's pace the program successfully checks and returns a long list of available proxies, though it's unclear as to what to do next. Free ProxyWay Anonymous Surfing works in conjunction with your browser so you must configure your system's Internet settings on the control panel to actually hide your IP using the detected proxy list. While it is free, you won't find difficulty in locating an IP masker with fewer hoops.

"Wish I had never installed it"

November 12, 2008  |  By duckhunter5

 |  Version: Free ProxyWay anonymous surfing 2.6

Pros

Can't think of one - it's crap

Cons

Didn't work, slowed my computer down to where emails weren't being received till the next day, couldn't exit or uninstall - closed my firewall ports, even when I unchecked 'using proxy' in the firewall settings. Finally had to do a system restore.

"BEWARE!!!! DISABLED BOTH INTERNET BROWSERS REQUIRING SYSTEM RESTORE TO REMEDY!"

October 02, 2007  |  By jimrobinson555

 |  Version: Free ProxyWay anonymous surfing 2.6

Cons

Downloaded & installed & clicked on auto configure and program QUIT! Uninstalled, reinstalled, tried again - same problem! Uninstalled again & went to report this to their website & both Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers would not connect to any website saying the proxy server (set up by ProxyWay) refused connection! Had to do a system restore to a date before the first ProxtWay installation to get my browsers to work again!

"VER 4.3 IS OUT NOW (much better than this ver)"

August 10, 2007  |  By im.spartacas

 |  Version: Free ProxyWay anonymous surfing 2.6

Pros

hide your ip by using a proxy from a different country.

this will find the different proxy's address from the sites you put in and check them all for you to see if there good or not..

this was the only free app i could find that did it all ..

Cons

very confusing the help section could be a lot better, sometimes it confuses you more ..but you do get used to it...

works sometimes and not others ..

does not always get the lists from the site you provide so you have to get them manually..

much easier /simple alternative is TorPark
