Proxy.sh is one of the fastest growing VPN services out there right now. These guys are everywhere. Their extremely low prices and commitment to privacy have made them an instant fan favorite. In just about every forum, you can find people recommending Proxy.sh to new users. The biggest benefit to Proxy.sh is their logging policy which is among the most strict and private in the industry. Proxy.sh does not keep any logs internally and does not store customer IP addresses linked to subscription accounts. Unlike some others…
The VPN service from Proxy.sh is a high speed offering that includes a number of beneficial features. All plans from Proxy.sh feature PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN, and SafeJumper. They also feature DNS and SOCKS services. Considering the ultra low prices, its hard to believe they are able to pull it all off in a plan with no contract! SafeJumper from Proxy.sh is their proprietary software application for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. The name comes from the core feature – once you connect to a Proxy.sh VPN server, the “Disconnect” button will turn into “Safejump”. Clicking this button will allow you to “jump” (disconnect and reconnect instantaneously) to the new selected location. So a “SafeJump” from VPN server to VPN server. The logistics of this have long been a problem in truly secure connections because the obvious disconnect and reconnect action of the same IP address to new VPNs is easily monitored. SafeJump is an excellent solution and the software app makes it easy to do. For added convenience they have thrown in a feature to “jump to fastest” VPN server too.
Of course where would they be without proxy services? CGIProxy from Proxy.sh can keep your IP and location hidden from any website. Once you have reached the CGIProxy main page, simply input any HTTP, HTTPS or FTP address in the textfield shown in order to access those sites with your IP and location hidden. Remember that a proxy isn’t a complete solution though, some location services might still go through unprotected via items like Adobe Flash objects.
Proxy.sh SafeJumper Apps for Android and iOS are free and available in the Google Play and Apple App stores. Both provide a quick and easy way to secure the connection on your mobile device. Instructions are available at the Proxy.sh website for manual installation in Win, Mac, iOS, Android, FreeBSD, Debian, Ubuntu, and OpenBSD. Since Proxy.sh provides the certificates, it is highly compatible with just about any OS. They are also one of the only services we know that actually posts all their DMCA takedown requests, seizure notices, and search warrants. They call it the Proxy.sh transparency report and it also gets put on twitter! It’s another indication of how seriously these guys take VPN security and user privacy. We don’t know of any another service provider publicly posting notices.
The VPN network at Proxy.sh has been steadily growing and now stands at about 42 countries.

Logging Policy: Straight from their FAQ:, “We do not keep any logs internally. The only thing we log here is your e-mail address and your purchase details (your invoices linked to your e-mail and your product details). We do not log your activity on our proxy (neither the authentication nor the traffic). We don’t even know whether you use our proxy or not. We do not log IP or location, nor anything such as your browser details. Nevertheless, you must be aware that our payment gateways will log your IP, location and any information you provide to them. It’s your call to decide what you should or should not release out.”
