Hide My IP 126.96.36.199
A lightweight piece of software that is designed to maintain your browsing anonymity by hiding your IP address from users or trackers
Hide My IP is a nifty application designed to make you invisible when browsing the web, thus protecting your identity from theft. You get to surf in an anonymous environment, one that’s impossible to track.
A smart move while you're surfing the web is to hide your real IP. There are a lot of people out there who attempt to hack into your system, not to mention the big companies that are always trying to monitor and track your browsing habbits.
Unfortunately, a simple change of IP is sometimes not enough, so the best alternative is to use an application such as Hide My IP that automatically changes the IP address every given number or minutes.
In other words, it is a simple piece of software designed to offer you the luxury of anonymity over the Internet. The interface is pretty standard, yet intuitive; quick settings include changing your IP every few minutes, clearing cookies when the IP changes, or launching the program on startup.
On the other hand, from the Advanced Settings Section, you can select to always use a US-based IP (although this option was not selected, our changed IPs were exclusively US-based), use SmartSwitch or use open-network IP addresses.
In addition, there is a list of discarded items, where you can add IPs you don't wish to be used as your fake addresses. Hotkey shortcuts can be assigned to various commands - hide IP, change IP, stop hiding IP, discard current IP, or bring up the Hide My IP Window.
Hide My IP worked pretty great for us. We find that it is easy to use, intuitive and aimed at both beginners and professionals. It changes the IP of the system on user-defined time intervals for complete online anonymity.
