A proxy is an instrument authorizing one person to represent, act, and vote for another. Most commonly these are used at shareholder's meetings of a corporation, whereby a proxy will vote the shares per the shareholder's direction (or, if none is given, as the proxy deems advisable).

Alternatively, it is a tool used that allows a computer to mask its IP address by using a false one. This type of proxy can be used for anonymity.
