A proxy server acts as an intermediary between a user and whatever website they wish to access. When a user sends a request to load a webpage, the request is first sent to the proxy server, which then forwards the request to the desired web server. When the result is returned, the proxy server relays the information back to the user. This prevents the web server, and any connection point between the proxy server and the web server, from seeing the user's IP address. Because of this, a proxy service offers a low level of anonymity, which can throw a would-be tracker off a user's digital scent, or in this case, allow multiple users to contribute to the online composite identity of someone who doesn't exist.

* It is important to remember not to log-in to any personal accounts when using the proxy. Only browse websites that do not require logging in. For example: Google searches, browsing items on Amazon, or reading articles at your favorite online news outlet——anything to add to the data set of Aaron's interests.
