After connecting to a proxy server, you should always carry out an anonymity test to evaluate your proxy anonymity. This IP proxy checker page will verify that your IP address is indeed hidden.
The following anonymity check guidelines offer more detailed proxy anonymity information.
If your IP address is shown in any of the HTTP headers below, then your IP address is exposed: you are either using a transparent proxy or no proxy at all.
A website can detect that you are accessing it through a proxy server by testing for the presence of special HTTP headers that only proxies use: namely, "Via" and "X-Forward-For". However, the site will not be able to determine your true IP address if the IP address fields are faked or cleared of data by your proxy.
As long as none of the HTTP headers display your IP address, you can be certain that your IP address will not be exposed. But if even one of the special proxy HTTP Headers is present, whether faked or cleared of data, a website can still ascertain that you are surfing anonymously through a proxy.
A high anonymity proxy can completely suppress "Client-ip", "Forwarded", and "Via" headers. If no proxy variables exist in your HTTP header, and your IP address is not displayed in any of the HTTP headers fields shown below, it will be more difficult for sites to detect that you are using a proxy to conceal your real IP address.
