How can I use a droplet as proxy for my laptop?

Is it possible to configure a droplet as proxy so I can browse using the droplet IP address? What kind of software has to be installed on both my laptop and the droplet? How can I secure the proxy just for me (username / password)? On my laptop, I have OS X Yosemite. I appreciate any info on this topic because I’m a newbie.

Wow, you’re fast Woet! It seems that a VPN is what I’ve been looking for. I have to test it but thanks so far!
