The embedded anonymizer maintains your privacy within the web due to routing of your network traffic through distributed net, initiated, run and supported by volunteers from all over the world. Such a scheme prevents an opportunity to track what web-resources do you visit, to identify your physical location and also affords a way to get access to websites blocked in your geographical region.

Corporations make use of the service as a secure method to run analysis on competitive market and as an addition to virtual private networks as well.
