Password Protection Needed For Elite Proxy?
Got a Elite Proxy and wondering if a username and password is really necessary?. Having to constantly enter usernames and passwords when changing IPs can be tiring but should not be neglected. Since a proxy server is on the internet, it is possible that anyone could gain access to the server if they knew the IP. Don't be fooled by thinking that just because there are so many other computers and IPs on the internet that the chances of finding your proxy server are zero. Technology today can allow someone to potentially find your proxy server with great ease by simply scanning IP ranges looking for servers that are not secured with a password. Due to this you should never setup a proxy server that doesn't use a password. If someone else gains access to your proxy server then you can be held liable for any damages that they do through the use of it. If you want to save time, instead of not using a password, there are many other applications and programs out there that will automaticallys handle username and passwords for logging into your proxy. Use these instead as they will achieve what you want (speeding up the login process) but also alow you to retain the high level of security that your Elite Proxy requires.
