All of our servers run a Squid proxy with NCSA authorization, a SOCKS 5 proxy with identification, as well as an OpenVPN or PPTP VPN server, depending on the service you have chosen with VPN4ALL.
In general, all those proxy and VPN servers are configured for maximum anonymity while still guaranteeing the most reasonable usability, i.e. we are using a configuration that, while protecting your identity, still permits you to access 99.98% of the pages and services on the Internet without producing errors or rendering problems. For example, we don't operate our Squid proxies on “standard anonymity mode” but on “high anonymity mode,” commonly called “elite proxy mode”, but not on “paranoia mode” either (as the latter basically permits you to view only plain text pages; you would be unable to submit forms or use web authentication.). This means in a nutshell, we remove your IP address completely, including in the “X-Forwarded-For” header; we deny the “From”, ”Server", “Referrer” and some other headers and replace your “User Agent” with an operating system that most probably will differ from the one you will be most likely using; but we leave other headers intact, as their absence from a security point of view only suppresses rather irrelevant information, while it will make you unable to browse and access many pages. As a result, no web site receives data that personally identify you, but the web site will, for example, still be informed which content encoding your browser expects.
Is the information incorrect or does it contradict what we say somewhere else at the site? These FAQs are a work in progress and unfortunately as a result our product updates and network changes we can't always get it right instantly in all the FAQs. Please let us know if you see something incorrect and we'll do everything we can to straighten out the misleading bits and pieces! None of these FAQs answer your question?
