    I bought 10 proxies form actproxy today but they didnt provide username and password like im used to from buy proxies.

    I looked on the client area and didnt see any indication i could add them myself.

    I tried out the proxies and they worked without any user/pass so does that mean anyone could sniff them and use them or are they protected some other way?

    I didn't have any password when I got proxies from Squidproxies and they considered to be one of the best so I think it's fine.

    Usually, proxies without a user/password combination are authenticated by IP.

    Sure, they could spoof your IP. But they could also intercept your user/pass combination :p

    Btw, take a look on their FAQ:
    Here you have :)

    Haha so true... sometimes you only need to know that it just works :D

    But don't worry, it's secure, some people doesn't like it because if you are moving to different locations, then it's a hassle. But that's all :)
