Read an in-depth analysis in our professional review for Hide IP Speed
If privacy is one of your main concerns when browsing the web, you should get a dedicated software solution to protect you while online. Besides using the 'Private mode' many modern browser come with, you can try an anonymizer service or a proxy server to redirect the traffic.
Hide IP Platinum is one of the applications that can do that, while remaining pretty light on computer resources and extremely user friendly.
Simplicity is a flavor that's actually part of the whole application, as there's nothing too complicated when it comes to working with Hide IP Platinum. It will conceal your real IP address so you can browse the Internet without leaking personal information.
Hide IP Platinum doesn't have an interface, instead you can right-click its tray icon to access the main functions. The 'Options' area, though, has its own window with several tabs for configuring the running settings of the application.
What we noticed during our tests was a minor slowdown of the Internet connection, but this only depends on the proxy Hide IP Platinum connects to. The good thing is that it remains very friendly with computer resources, so it can easily work on older machines too.
All in all, Hide IP Platinum does provide a supplemental layer of protection and will keep your personal information away from prying eyes. The IP address will be masked and your browsing session will remain truly private.
