Information Retained By Proxy

What kind of information is retained by the proxies used by the Epic Privacy Browser?

Do they maintain logs for originating IPs (that IP used to to start  Epic Privacy Browser)?

Do they maintain logs of websites visited by users of Epic Privacy Browser?

How secure are passwords when using a proxy?

Are passwords retained by proxies or Epic Privacy Browser?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Thank you.

Re: Information Retained By Proxy

We do authenticate you via the browser (only through the browser can one access our proxy).  We occasionally do record how many different IPs access the proxy as well as bandwidth accessed.  That is the extent of the logging we do.  We NEVER log or retain your IP address or any websites visited or any other browsing data. 

Passwords should mostly be over https so they are not even accessible to the proxy (they're encrypted).  Passwords are safer via the proxy on than with the proxy off -- this is because in case the website uses http (which is unlikely), Epic's proxy will encrypt your password so it's never "visible" in the internet.
