Who use proxy

By newuser919 ·
Hi! I'm new in it and I have a lot of questions. But at first I want to know WHO use proxy? Not why how and etc. I read many articles about proxy but there is no information about users. I found only about sneakerheads and want to know who else.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy_server mentions a lot of reasons *why* companies use proxy-servers in their infrastructure. Why do you want to know *what* companies use this technique.

Because I want to understand who need proxies. I don't need name of companies or people. I interested who else (except companies to protect networks) can use proxy. May be for some specifical needs.

It's not that site that you mention that uses proxies, it's YOU that apparently wants to use a proxy to visit that site. Probably other people that visit it do the same.
I read the recommended one is only $75 per month for users like you.

In decades we never used a proxy.

I have to assume that you meant the following:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy_server

Also, no one I know uses such.

Now if you were to ask about VPNs, I know a lot of folk use those. Reasons are plentiful but not limited to privacy and GEO relocation.
