When you connect to the Internet, your IP address is your identity and it’s exposed to the world to see. Of course this is not a problem under normal circumstances, but can be misused by hackers and people with bad intention because your IP address actually tells a lot about yourself. Don’t believe me? Check your IP address now and I will show you where you are from!
Your privacy is at high risk! Want to hide your IP Address while surfing?
There are a few ways to hide your IP so that you can surf the Internet anonymously.
- If you are using Mozilla Firefox, then you have to check out SwitchProxy which lets you manage and switch between multiple proxy configurations quickly and effortlessly. You can also use it as an anonymizer to protect your computer from prying eyes.
- However, if all you wanted is just to surf anonymously and do not intend to install any firefox add-on, then Mister Privacy might be a good choice. Basically, they offer two options and the free option is enough to get started. The free option does block thousands of harmful threats and malicious scripts, and of course hides your IP address!
The above are two of the best and easiest ways to surf anonymously. If you are more adventurous and do not mind a little technical stuff, you can change the proxy settings directly within your Internet browser. Public Proxy Servers has a hugh list of free proxy servers all around the world which you can use.
Happy surfing and hide your IP when you need to. 🙂
