What that does is use a proxy server.



When You use a service like that You are trusting that they will not look at what you send and receive from the internet.

Since it has to go through them you are exposed to that extent. There is no way to hide Your IP from everybody. If it is completely hidden nothing can be displayed in your browser since the website does not know where to send it.


As I understand it the Anonymizing services take your IP and replace it when they feed the request onwards and then when the data comes back they send it to your IP since they have to know it to work.


So no total anonymity. Someone has to know.

As far as i know there is no way to completely avoid detection if they REALLY wants to find you. What you can do is to make it harder for them!


TOR is a safe way for surfing. Especially if started using Tails (https://tails.boum.org/) .


But if you intend to use P2P or similar TOR is not for you. It´s to slow and your use will affect others using it.


If P2p is what you intend to do i´d suggest a VPN-tunnel. Make sure to chose one that saves no logs. There are quite a few but none free for P2P-use.


Here´s a list. A bit outdated but worth checking out!:

If you want to use a proxy, check out this list for some free ones:




If you P2P and your ISP throttles your connection whenever you torrent, say Comcast for example, having a VPN will prevent that.


In my case, I have torrent speeds of at MOST 2mb/sec, but normal speeds of 38mb/sec.


If your looking for an easy option, try https everywhere. It doesn't hide your IP but your connection is encrypted. It was developed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, so it actually works.
