There are a few different ways in which you can bypass an anonymous proxy, though the method you should use depends a great deal upon the way in which the proxy is set up. One of the simplest methods is to disable the proxy within your Internet connection settings in your web browser, though this is not always effective. You can also potentially use another proxy server to get around the anonymous proxy that is causing issues for you. One important thing to keep in mind, however, is that you may find yourself in serious trouble if you bypass an anonymous proxy at work or school.

In order for you to bypass an anonymous proxy, you need to know how the proxy is being used. An anonymous proxy is a server that your computer connects to, which then connects to the Internet, allowing you to remain anonymous while using a web browser. This is typically accomplished either through software that is installed onto your computer, or through a setting in your web browser that automatically directs you to a proxy when you use it. The way in which you can bypass an anonymous proxy depends a great deal upon which setup has been used with your computer.

If your computer has software on it that makes it connect to a proxy, then you can typically bypass this by removing that software. You may not be able to remove the program, however, if you do not have administrator privileges on the system. If this is the case, then you should not bypass an anonymous proxy if the computer you are using is the property of a school or workplace.

As long as you know that you are allowed to bypass an anonymous proxy without losing your job or getting seriously reprimanded by your school, then you should consider two possible solutions. The first way you can bypass the proxy is by simply removing the proxy settings in your web browser software. This is the program that you use to navigate the Internet and visit different websites. You should check the connection settings for your browser and see if there is a proxy server set, which you can change to bypass it.

If you cannot simply alter your web browser to bypass an anonymous proxy, then you may need to try a more complex solution. You can try to use another proxy server, for example, that actually gets between your computer and the proxy that is already used. This can allow you to then use your proxy to avoid connecting to the other one. If you do not wish to connect to an anonymous proxy on a computer and network that you own, however, you should simply change your setup to no longer do so.
