may be your friend.
Pretty easy to dl/install/use, this vpn seems to be working even with https(links).
To boot, your 'http headers', on the other side, *probably* show 'no proxy detected.'

Yea, sometimes that remote site out there (like this) may and should be much less of a concern to you than your own provider, maybe :)

one should keep in mind that there's always a possibility that such services could be a honeypot, so beware..
(After all, as they say, which ever proxies you may use, free or not, think twice before doing anything stupid)

This, by the way, explains why the different national privacy laws do not strictly require anymore that ISPs keep long term logs of associations between public IPs and customer contracts.
Current user logging, identification and tracking, happens much more effectively via cookies, or stored login informations, kept within the browsers, or in specific app memory on mobile devices. Additionally web tracking "bugs" or "bugpixels" are widely used in every website.
Let's say you use this vpn service. you surely leave traces in their login system logs. Then you open once your gmail, and google knows who you are. You open any of your apps, or facebook, and you are tracked. The only thing you surely get from the service is that they can get a log of all your "private surfing activities". Like in tor.
So, better turn to good old proxomitron, with multiproxy in random sequence, for every single http get, and at least your traffic is scattered thru many paths. But even this is pointless against cookie tracking.
And in mobile devices, you have plent of apps that track you, in many different ways, and the network itself tracks you because GSM has been very cleverly designed precisely for that purpose.
smile at the camera!
PS: IPv6 is more technically trackable, but still much less used than ipv4

(hardly can they provide any better info than you do, btw :)
That's why, sometimes, "we" ' d like to go for others' "open" networks
(and for a "virtual machine" like, say, that windose disposable account :)
Thank you again :)
