    Hello There :) ,

    I am planning to use us private proxies. But I am not sure if it legal to use proxy from qatar (I am living in qatar). So, will my ISP know when I use private proxy?

    Thank You! :D

    I think it is legal anyway, but not sure they would know what you're doing unless they are actively spying on you.

    How would they know? They're not gonna sit there and monitor what you're doing on your own internet connection. Even then I'm not sure if it's possible for them to know.

    "As certain governments actively censor or restrict the sites its citizens visit, they often employ trackers who scan IPs tapping into proxy sources, and any that show up in the scan are flagged for a live reviewer to see what the proxy user sees, so depending on what sites they visit, they could get visited by their local law enforcement agency for investigation." via WIKIPEDIA

    What does this mean?? :/

    Means that if someone really wants to come and see what you're doing, they can and will.

    If you're in the middle east they've banned facebook etc.., you can use those sites with proxies just fine. but If you're watching something like kiddie porn then that's another story. It all depends on what you're trying to do, no connection is 100% anonymous.

    OP ... from what i know about the area you are from .. be very careful
    like Mr Apricot said .. if they want to know what you are doing THEY WILL ..period.

    for starters if its not bw intensive ..i would use tor and chain it via hma or something ..

    if your concern is only that the ISP should not know, then the above method will work fine

    regards,

    wow I had no idea this happens anywhere in the world nowadays....so strange.
    As for your original question, is there no one in your country that you can ask that, they should know better.
