Stealthy for Chrome is a handy extension that you can use to hide your identity while navigating online, in order to overpass geographical location or organization restrictions that some websites impose.
Extensions are a great way of extending the functionality of your web browsers and Google Chrome is one of the most versatile Web explorers. If the proxy configuration settings of Chrome are not working for you, an addon such as Stealthy for Chrome can help you hide your location and gain access to restricted or forbidden webpages. The extension also comes with a version for Firefox and ensures anonymous navigation online.
Once installed, the extension can be easily configured from the 'Options' section. The free version of Stealthy for Chrome can be set to use a proxy from a random location, but you can also specify a certain country (USA and The United Kingdom are only available in the 'PRO' version, which requires a paid subscription).
In addition to this, you can create an exception lists that includes websites that are not affected by Stealthy. The URLs entered in this list are accessed normally, as if the extension is not even added to the Chrome browser.
Activating the 'Incognito' mode means that Stealthy only applies the proxy settings for icognito windows, which comes in handy if you intend to use the extension just for certain webpages.
Once configured, Stealthy for Chrome can be enabled using the new button that it adds to the browser toolbar.
Although it is just a simple extension, Stealthy for Chrome can offer you clearance for visiting any website you want. Its advantage is that you don't have to deal with complicated proxy address and port configurations, since choosing the country is enough for getting past all the restrictions and regulations and access pages that you normally can't due to your location.
