Which is better: VPN or proxy? Let's look at the advantages and disadvantages of the first and second options and then you will choose the right one for yourself. Despite the fact that the result of both technologies allows you to achieve one goal-visiting banned sites, they have a number of differences.

What is the difference between VPN and proxy, and what have more advantages? To answer this question, consider the disadvantages and advantages of both a proxy server and a VPN. The need to use such methods of changing its geographical location is caused by the ban in Ukraine of most Russian sites, the main of which are social networks. And to communicate with friends and loved ones, users are looking for detours.
What is a VPN?
VPN-a number of private networks that exist as a full-fledged program or extension in the browser. VPN works on the principle of full data encryption when you turn on the Internet. You can start using such a private network by downloading a third-party program or installing an extension in your browser. This is convenient, because the tabs can be opened in your favorite browser without unnecessary movements.

But, unfortunately, this type of bypass of locks has also minuses:

VPN is not free, and is usually expensive;
There are failures during the loss of Internet connection, which is why you need to turn off and re-enable the browser;
If the Internet is weak, the VPN will issue its "whims" (for example, suddenly turn off or refuse to turn on at all);
Low connection speed and strong pressure on the Internet, which will make it slower to work;
To find a good program you need to lose a lot of time.
If you want to use this connection to encrypt the location, the best program will be the Opera browser with a built-in VPN.

What is a proxy and how is it different from a VPN
A proxy server is an intermediate device between a laptop (or other equipment) and an Internet resource. To bypass the blocking, the proxy server also changes the IP address, after which the geographical location of the device from which the Internet is accessed changes. Together with it you can visit any country of the globe (Germany, France, Italy, etc.), however, only virtually and to bypass the lock or remain anonymous (alas).

For example, if you want to enter the VC, choose the geographical location of the country in which it is not prohibited to use this social network. Russian IP is suitable for this purpose.

Installing and configuring a proxy will not take much time and effort, because everything happens quickly and "painlessly". The proxy server can be installed both in the browser and on Windows. The second option will be more extensive, as the location changes in several browsers at once. The initial setting will make even a child, if you use our visual instructions with pictures.


When you first connect, you can use a free proxy. But, of course, it is not so high speed and poorly protected compared to private, which can lead to loss of information. Therefore, it is recommended to use it temporarily.

Proxy servers that you can buy have many advantages:

High speed Internet connection (does not load when bypassing prohibitions);
Customize for yourself for comfortable use;
When resuming a lost Internet connection, you do not need to restart the browsers to make the proxy server work again (as in the case of the VPN);
Implementation of any type of activity in an anonymous manner.
Of course, the proxy has drawbacks, but fortunately they are not serious, because of what it is possible to close your eyes:

There is no data encryption, there is simply a substitution of location;
If you choose to connect to a banned site at the other end of the world, the connection will probably not be as fast in this case (for example, if it is the United States). But, you can ask for help in support, experts will pick up the right addresses for a quick connection.

Nevertheless, even if the service you have chosen does not maintain logs, it can still (if necessary) monitor your actions on the network in real time - for example, to fix technical problems. Although the majority of “non-logged”Top VPN services promise not to monitor your actions in real time, in most countries the law allows the relevant authorities to order the VPN service to start logging the actions of a specific user without notifying him about this. However, there is no reason for concern.

I would not use VPN at all. Probably websites have started to specifically block that people would have started to use a VPN. And if the sites were not blocked and you could visit as before any sites in any countries, then would you need a VPN? And confidentiality doesn't Windows do? I don't know who to believe or trust anymore. I use of course here such VPN https://bestvpnforchina.co/reviews/surfshark-vpn/ that would visit any sites. Writes that still and anonymity me makes in networks. What can I say, it was good when not blocked. And with this VPN, it makes no difference, blocked or not. Everywhere goes.

But wait, can you monitor user activity through a TopVPN? And block access? It seems that the network should protect against this, isn’t it? She owes nothing to anyone. This is a tool that you can use as you like. Only an additional source of access to traffic, no more than.
And in the most extreme case - just turn off access to individual sites in the settings of the corporate VPN server. This also works.

Another plus is the cost of the solution: while laying a private network between remote offices can cost hundreds of thousands, the price for using a TopVPN solution starts from scratch, all the more important for connecting individual employees working in the field to the corporate network .

The point-to-point connection is used to connect the entire local area network in one location to the local area network in another. The standard scenario is connecting remote branches to the central office or data center of the company. It does not require the installation of TopVPN clients on user devices, since the connection processes the TopVPN gateway, and data transfer between devices on different networks is transparent.

Both VPN and Proxy are men-in the-middle! Should you just trust them?
