Why the proxies are free

In the wake of the Snowden revalations, many has turned to proxy services for raising the bar for the prying eyes.

Some are turning on private mode in their browser, other’s suggest that one should be using “privacy enhanced” browsers like Epic, that automatically turns on proxying for you.

There is a problem with the proxies, you are trusting someone else with your traffic. You had better know what the proxy is.
