Who use proxy

Hi! I'm new in it and I have a lot of questions. But at first I want to know WHO use proxy? Not why how and etc. I read many articles about proxy but there is no information about users. I found only about sneakerheads and want to know who else.

  2. To monitor your Internet access
No one at home needs a proxy, but some will still use one to implement a VPN
