A private proxy is basically a computer that sits between your computer and even the range of the wider network. This “wider network” is what we call the internet. This is the proxy that acts as an intermediary between your computer and the internet. One of the main benefits of private proxy is that it keeps you hidden from anyone who tries to know about you over the internet. In short, it means that the user will view the IP address of the proxy server. They would not be able to capture your real IP address.
