idcloak has launched a free HTTPS web proxy, which allows users to visit websites on shared networks without exposing their activity to the scrutiny of local network administrators. The web-based tool, which runs on any device, offers complete privacy to office workers who occasionally need to use their work internet for sensitive or personal purposes.
“Network administrators use special software to monitor internet traffic passing through the company’s servers, whether WiFi or regular Ethernet,” says
The service provided by idcloak is a simple proxy website with an option to activate SSL encryption between the user and the server they choose. A user visits idcloak’s site, checks the SSL box, chooses a server location and then either enters the URL of a website or conducts a search through
The proxy uses an Encrypt URL function by default to conceal the web address of the visited site. Only idcloak’s site address is visible. An additional encryption function, Encrypt Page, offers an extra layer of security for the transfer of extremely sensitive content. It also helps users discretely visit sites that are blocked on their internet connection.
“Privacy and security are suffering terribly in the modern day internet landscape,” says Welles. “And we are proud to be part of a community of service providers working to stem that tide.”
The release of the HTTPS web proxy comes just weeks before launch of idcloak’s advanced privacy service – the web VPN. An early-bird discount for the service is currently available on idcloak.com.
