How to use "Proxies" in context?

Proxy servers are systems which act as middlemen between two parties. They rely on intermediary systems which are able to intercept and route HTTP or other requests so that they can be sent to the correct destinations. This is an efficient way to bypass firewalls and other security measures which may be in place.

There are a number of reasons why proxy servers are used. They can be used to hide the identity of the user or website. They can also be used to bypass content restrictions, for example in countries where access to certain websites is prohibited. Proxy servers can also be used to improve the speed of web browsing.
