What is an http proxy?

HTTP proxy is a filtering server. Its function is to filter unwanted or hazardous data traffic for a safer internet connection. HTTP proxies block any suspicious data that may do damage to the client’s operating system. Users choose HTTP proxies for several reasons, including certain content restrictions based on specified conditions, filtering incoming content, suspicious download blocking (a proxy will not let you download files of unique types), etc. As a filtering buffer zone between a client’s computer and external servers, an HTTP proxy processes the incoming data, searching for any potentially hazardous content before sending traffic to the receiving computer.
