Never ever use a proxy for trading! What hackers do is that they operate from a country where there is very easy to dodge law enforcement agencies. Now, most of the websites or companies that you have been trading on, have allowed trading in very few countries. If for example, you want to trade in a country where trading is not allowed, you might want to use proxy services to access that website and trade. We suggest you never to do it! Either you can wait for that company to start its operations in your country or you can trade through a third party present in that particular country in which trade is allowed.
Some of the proxy services that you may use may be a scam. If somehow, you are able to access a website through a proxy server, that server may get access to your personal and financial information and may use it to steal your money.
According to a report by FBI, cyber criminals made a staggering $676 million through cyber crimes and stealing money from different accounts. So, we never know that the proxy server you are using has a phishing aspect.
What users do is that when they become victim of a phishing technique or cyber crime, they blame the company and its security system for their loss. What can a company do it a customer is being careless? We advise you to stay alert, always look for miscellaneous softwares and malwares. Always look carefully at the link that has been sent to you and never use proxies for financial sites, no matter how good their reviews are and no matter how trustworthy they are.
