How it works
Teleport uses proxy servers in Puerto Rico to fetch web pages on your behalf. We operate our own proxy servers in the countries that are "popular destinations" - those are marked as trusted below. For the rest of the countries we rely on publicly availably proxy servers (marked non-truested).
There are a few important implications from this:
- Any website you access via Teleport will "see" proxy server IP address instead of your actual one and assume you are in the country you have "teleported" to.
- The non-trusted servers are operated by third parties that can be malicious. Never ever enter any sensitive information while teleported to a country with no trusted servers.
- The extra indirection levels are likely to impact the connection speed.
