Last updated date: Jan 30, 2024

Proxyman LLC (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates the https://proxyman.io website (hereinafter referred to as the “Service”).

This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when you use our Service and the choices you have associated with that data. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, the terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, accessible from https://proxyman.io/terms-of-use.

macOS, Windows, Linux Version

The types of data we DO NOT obtain

  • Name and contact details (e.g name, address, phone numbers, day of birth, National ID, etc);
  • Account details (e.g. username, password);
  • Payment information (such as bank account information, receipts, transactions);
  • HTTP/HTTPS Requests and Response content (e.g. URL, Host, Domain, Status Code, Headers, Body, etc);
  • Private information in your devices (e.g. Your data on Download, Desktop, Applications, MAC Address, etc);

Users do not have to register to use Proxyman. Thus, all users are anonymous to us. We do not hold personally identifiable information to identify users.

Regarding the Proxyman Root Certificate, it is a self-signed certificate that is generated in your local machine. Thus, all requests and responses are captured and stored on your computer and Proxyman does not have access to your data.

What’s in your machine, it’s in your machine.

The types of data we obtain and how we use them

  • Email address;
  • License key;
  • Device name;
  • Generic analytic data from AppCenter: e.g. Device model, Session Duration, OS Name and Version, How many times a particular tool is used, etc
  • Crash Report;

Note 1: All diagnostics and usage data is collected anonymously and kept in aggregate with no personally-identifying information.

You can opt-out of sharing this data by going to App Setting -> Privacy -> Uncheck "Share analytics with Proxyman" or "Share crashed reports with Proxyman".

Note 2: Email, License Key and Device name are collected if only you activate with a Proxyman license key. We use the email address to send you the license key, payment receipt, and your device name to help you manage devices associated with your current license at License Manager. We only manage the license due-date to notify users when the license is expired. Thus, your license is not auto-renewed and you are not auto-charged.

iOS Version

  • Name and contact details (such as name, address, or phone numbers);
  • Account details (such as username, password, or how often you have used Proxyman);

  • Device name (iOS 15 or earlier); On iOS 16 or later, the Real Device Name is hidden by the iOS. Proxyman only collects generic device models, such as iPhone, iPad, etc

Proxyman needs the device name to generate a self-signed Root Certificate. It's useful to distinguish with other certificates. It also indicates that the self-signed root certificates are uniquely generated on the user's device, not reused or pre-generated.

We do not send your device's name to Proxyman server or any third-parties. It only uses in the app, no remote servers involved.

What is the VPN on Proxyman for iOS?

Proxyman VPN is a local VPN on user's devices. It does not connect or send any data to any remote VPN Server. The purpose of Proxyman VPN is that it can capture all traffic from user's devices and proxies to Proxyman Local Man-In-The-Middle Server (It is bundled in the Network Extension, and it operates at localhost:9494) and display HTTP/HTTPS Request or Response content on the main app to end-users.

Please note that these data do not share anywhere (Include third parties and Proxyman remote servers). All are securely stores in a local sqilte3 database, which is in the Shared Group Container in your iOS devices. As soon as the user deletes the app or click on the "Clear" button in the main view. The data is wiped out on the user's devices.

Not all HTTPS Traffic that goes through VPN is MitM-ed. Only particular domains that users would like to debug are decrypted by Proxyman. It enables end-users can view the HTTP/HTTPS Request and Response in plain text.

There are no remote servers are involved and your data always remains private to end-users. What's your iOS devices, it's in your iOS devices.
