Question: Is it illegal to use proxy?
This is an important question, that i know many people must ask to you guys on a daily basis. Is it illegal to use proxies? Because I was thinking about trying it for privacy on my computer, and also to increase my computer speed.
But, I am afraid that I will get caught and get into trouble. I live in wisconsin and can anyone find out for me the law of using proxies in the state of Wisconsin. Because if it is oh ok, than I will use it but I don’t want to get into trouble for using it. Let me know the full details about it.
Answer: Of course it’s not legal to use a proxy for illegal purposes. You don’t need to worry about it if you use it to protect your privacy.
Here is the detailed legal information. 18 USC 1030 (which covers computer-related fraud and theft): http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/1030
The best method is to buy a private proxy service such as My IP Hide if you really concern about the legal issue.
