    Proxies help keep your online presence anonymous.

    Proxies change your IP. Anonymous proxies hide your IP too, but this does not make you anonymous, it just adds a layer between you and whatever you're accessing.

    When talking about online privacy then getting proxies is a must. Also, if you're in the SEO industry, it is important to have proxies because it can provide improved security, keep your activities hidden from others, etc. Proxies allows you to keep IP address anonymous from the websites that you're accessing.
