Recommendations from TheSafety.US

We would like to draw your attention to the fact that the proxy is configured directly in the Windows operating system.

If you use a VPN, then an undesirable situation will arise when the traffic first goes to the proxy server and only then to the VPN (chain: proxy + VPN). Although, the best option from the point of view of security and anonymity is the chain: VPN + proxy.

Socks proxy with authorization may not work on Windows.

The best solution to solve these problems is to use app Proxifier for Windows or Secure Kit browser extension.
