Proxy shows correct location but wrong time?? Unsecure??
« on: May 07, 2009, 09:39:27 AM »
If I use a proxy that it is in China for instance, I check to make sure it is working correctly by using showmyip.com or whatismyip.com or ipchicken.com or somthing similar.  All of these show that I am coming from an ip address in China, but the problem is that showmyip.com shows me my local time in the UK.  This actually gives my actual location generally.  I know it does not show where I am specifically, but gives up important information.  If someone else can see that they will know I am actually in the UK and not in China and must be using a proxy, even though it is elite according to all the sites I checked above. 

Am I the only that can see this since I checked it from my computer or are tags of some sort left when I surf or send an email that would also give up this information.  How do I have it believe that I am in China in all respects. 

Also, are there any other good sites other than those above to check what others might see about my computer.  Thx.

You can change your local time to be more "secure". But most sites won't check the local time of the visitors.
Elite Proxy Switcher - Easily testing and using proxies.
Socks Proxy Checker - To be your chief socks proxy checker.
Buy Proxy - Buy checked proxies from My-Proxy easily and quickly.
