    Feds? Question 1: Are you a US citizen?
    If no, you couldn't care less. If yes, you still couldn't.

    I know Anonymouse.org since many years now and it's the only anonymous proxy I'm using.

    You can not know if they do not keep records. Proxyping and Zend2 do not even have a privacy policy
    which doesn't make them trustworthy IMHO. An interesting information may be that Anonymouse is
    located in Germany which has very strict privacy-laws, so my opinion is that this adds more privacy to
    Anonymouse as other services have.

    Bye,

    You can't know for certain they do not keep logs unless you own the server and can look at it.

    They may also claim no logs but may be technically incompetent or lazy and make the logs recovery easy, Tor operators for example are supposed to encrypt their server swap partition but it does not mean they all do, hopefully yes, but you can't simply know unless the server is yours.
