No it's not the same as using a proxy. When using a proxy you mask your real IP#. When using https: it provides a secure encrypted connection so that no one can read your passwords when you login. It protects the data you send from being read, but it doesn't hide your IP# like a proxy does.

Since Ip's are not being stored...can someone explain why it matters if a proxy is being used or not?

Say I post a pic w/o using a proxy...the IP the pic was posted from is not being stored...so using a proxy - or not - shouldn't make a difference in my not-so-computer-savvy opinion.

Thanks for your time explaining this to me!

If you are in Canada... if you are caught.. they give you a court date. and let you go...

In the Southern U.S.? They take you out into a peanut or corn, or cotton field and shoiot you...

There is no justice... Come on over... Oh... we would love to have you...

All your LIVE activity on any website is linked in real time your IP#, recorded by us or not. It's recorded by your hosting company and any interested party between you and our server. If you surf the web from your computer without a proxy, you are revealing your IP to every website you visit, including this one. Only diff is we aren't keeping your IP# in our database, but other sites and the NSA and other agencies can see it & record it if they like and that IP# can be looked up and traced right to your doorstep.

Using "invisible mode" here isn't going to change any of that.

Got it now?

"invisible mode" has never been part of my question and always has been clear to me.

So according to your answer using a Proxy makes sense due to outside places being able to record the users online activities if using the ISP's provided IP and ICM having no interest in doing so.

Thank you.

How to use a proxy:
go click one of these urls from the proxy list https://www.proxy4free.com/page1.html and surf from the site go check ur ip at ipchicken.com before and while using a proxy to see if ip has changed if it has ur set . farther ur proxy is away from u the more slower surfing may become
