Hideman is a lightweight application whose purpose is to help users surf the Internet in an anonymous mode.
The program makes sure your identity remains private by hiding your IP address while you are browsing different websites. This means that companies or applications are not able to track your presence on their websites.
Plus, in order to make sure your sensitive data remains unattainable for hackers, the program uses the 256-bit encryption algorithm.
Hideman sports a clean and straightforward layout that offers only a few configuration settings to tinker with.
The tool gives you the possibility to view details about your current IP address, country, and city, and lets you set up proxy parameters, and configure the connection protocol (TCP or UDP).
What’s more, you can make the utility run at Windows startup, display notification messages, as well as select a country or server to connect to from a preset list. You can sort the servers by name or priority, and refresh the current list with just one click.
Since it doesn’t much computer knowledge to work with this tool, even less experienced users can set up the entire process with minimum effort.
During our testing we have noticed that the program carries out a task quickly, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process. It doesn’t put a lot of stress on CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.
To sum things up, Hideman proves to be a reliable application that provides a handy set of parameters for helping you hide your IP address while surfing the Internet. Although it may seem more appropriate to experienced users, rookies could install it and configure it with minimum effort, thanks to its intuitive interface.
