It’s completely legal to use a proxy server. Proxies have multiple uses, like facilitating remote work, establishing a support system for users who are placed outside a particular network,  guarding networks and Internet users against wicked content, running online content from abroad etc.

When is Proxy Server considered Illicit?

It is important to know that there are some situations during which using a proxy server is illicit. For instance, some websites stream content that is accessible by users who have paid for it. If they do not pay the license fees and try to access that particular content through a proxy server, this will be regarded illegal.
