    Hey again everyone, so I recently posted a forum on whether or not I should use Hide My A$$ as my new VPN. Well it would seem that's a horrible idea, instead mostly everyone recommended I use a private proxy.

    However this is my first time learning the term 'private proxy'. So if anyone would kindly inform me on what you think of a private proxy for eBay and PayPal use, that would be sincerely appreciated.

    Has anyone been banned due to the use of a private proxy?

    I have heard over and over that I should NEVER use a proxy service for eBay/PayPal, however clearly a private proxy is different, but how? (I will Google this after writing this post, but I'd like your thoughts)

    Overall do you think a private proxy is the best way to go for eBay/PayPal use? I mainly just need a new IP address for now (I cannot do the simple IP change because I'm stuck with AT&T U-VERSE - They give you a static IP whether you like it or not)

    Also this private proxy would be used by a friend of mine to print off shipping labels. (He lives within 100 miles of myself, so I doubt there would be a problem with distance from IP)

    I am grateful to all replies.

    I do not work with eBay and Paypal so I can't speak in specifics, but from the little I do know and have seen people talk about around here I think I like your VPN idea better. Not from HMA of course, but a lot of proxy providers also sell VPN's as well. You can get a private VPN similar to the way you would get a private proxy. It might cost a couple bucks extra, but for the extra layers of protection you get I think it's more than worth it in this case. If you really want to start "fresh" you may want to consider a VPS as well. You wouldn't need them concurrently, but you could get a VPS which would essentially be like having another computer in w/e data center it's hosted in. Assuming the IP isn't banned already you wouldn't have to worry about switching back and forth, or even setting anything up. One advantage to the VPS is you wouldn't have to worry about cookies and switching back and forth from the VPN or proxy to your normal IP for normal usage.

    in my oppion,socks5 proxy more security than VPN, VPN more security than http proxy. Different website have different security strategy.it's hard to say who is the. lots of huge website like paypal will record your UA(user agent) and you IP for the security.
    I think you keep same UA and IP,is security enough to lots of website.As akacash say,you can use VPN or Proxy service you can find on,
    also VPS is another options if you don't need lots of IP.

    Using a VPN is better for anything that has highly sensitive data such as paypal/ebay/amazon payments due to its encryption. I would suggest you use L2TP or OpenVPN with any leading VPN providers. If you want more security, you can follow the below guidelines to have your OWN vpn server running in 5 minutes.

    1. Signup at Digital ocean.com

    2. Go to https://www.tinfoilsecurity.com/vpn/new/?provider=digital_ocean

    3. Enter your digital ocean API key and instantly you will have your own VPN setup.

    This is much more secure than using any VPN providers as you control your own data. It will cost you just 5$ / month.
