Proxyfree enables users to browse the Internet with relative anonymity simply by entering the desired URL into the search bar. It is fast, easy and completely universal. This means that anyone can access the service as long as they have a browser. It provides a very convenient way to get past blocked websites without the need to install complicated software or pay for expensive services.

Ease of use is by far the biggest advantage associated with the Proxyfree service. However, not every website will load or display properly. This means that navigating pages and accessing various selectable features within a particular site may not be possible. Some videos will not play, and connection speeds may be slow as well.

This tool is ideal for surfing text-based as opposed to video-sharing or streaming websites. I did not think it was worth the time and effort to use this platform to try and access the videos I wanted to download and watch. I also had reservations as to exactly how much anonymity and security this service actually provides.

There are a lot of free and very cheap VPN applications that enable anonymous browsing from anywhere in the world, and they seem to be a better and more practical alternative to this basic service. This is just my opinion, and I'm sure that many people will find Proxyfree to be a useful and efficient way to visit websites that they would not otherwise be able to access.

The good thing about this interface is that it is very easy to use. It does all of the work for you, and it doesn't make any changes to your system. There is also nothing to lose by using Proxyfree, so it may be worth a try just to check it out.
