How does this work ?

I'm still trying to get my head around this, how does changing to different proxies make it harder to track? E.G moving to 3 different proxies before loading the target site

Think of it like this.
0 proxies: I passed a ball to Julia, who then gave it back to me.
3 proxies: I passed a ball to Stan, who then gave it to Robert, who then gave it to Kevin, who then gave it to Julia, who then passed it back the same way.
10 Proxies: I passed a ball to Stan, who then gave it to Robert, who then gave it to Kevin, who then gave it to Matt, who then gave it to- wait, where are we again?

Can you even change proxies in the middle of a req

No, but this is what I'm thinking:
Right before you pass the ball to Stan (or whoever is in line first) put a sticky note on the ball saying something like:

Stan: Pass to Robert Robert: Pass to Kevin Kevin: Pass to Matt ... Final Receiver: Attach your data, then go back down the line.

I see now. Have you heard of VPNs (Virtual Private Networks)? They are sort of like a proxy in that requests from you and responses to your requests are routed through a VPN server that effectively hides your identity. Traffic between you and the VPN is usually encrypted as well. You also have to change your DNS away from your internet provider (ISP), which is usually the default, or the ISP can log your requests, even though the traffic is encrypted.
