# detect-proxy
### This repo is unmaintained and this technique may not work anymore.
By [Feross Aboukhadijeh](
This code allows a malicious website to **detect whether the user is browsing through a proxy or not** by using image tags. Proxies are often used by corporations, political dissidents, and privacy conscience Internet users because they can provide additional security or anonymous Internet browsing.
