I've been told about a program called Hide All IP which can change your IP so you are basically hidden on the internet. Is this sort of software legal? Especially if you could be using a IP in let's say the USA. If i did get it my main concern would be am i stealing a IP address from somebody else? Or isn't this the case.

It doesn't really change your original ip.  Here is what the site says;

 

"Hide ALL IP protects your online identity by change your IP address to our private server's IP and routes all your internet traffic through our encrypted internet servers"

 

As long as they don't get hacked you are safer [you are never safe]

Ah right. So basically your IP stays the same but it gets changed through their servers so you are basically hidden unless they get hacked as you said.

Unless they are the ones doing the hacking. LOL This is why you never proxy or VPN tunnel through a unknown, something like TOR because anyone can spin up a TOR server even the Government :::cough:::

I will probably stay clear of it then. Because the vast majority of things can be hacked quite easily now it seems. But i was wondering if they have actually bought the servers they use or have they just found random servers that were easy to get into.

As others have said your IP address doesn't change.  You are putting all of your trust in Hide All IP as they can see all of your traffic both ways.

 

Why you want to do this is also a question.  If you are looking to do something that is not legal you will not be protected from discovery as Hide All IP will most likely give you up to law enforcement.

 

Long story short, any thing you do on the Internet can be traced back to your actual IP address, provided someone wants to go through what is necessary.

Hide All IP is just a VPN company that routes your traffic through their servers. Therefore, when you're surfing the web, websites that track user movement (common), will log Hide All IP's servers, instead of you. This is essentially what they mean. However, Hide All IP is susceptible to holding information of yourself and traffic that goes on between you and the outbound server. 

 

I would assume that your traffic will be encrypted by the servers, so they actually have no idea what you're doing.

You would be wrong.  If it is encrypted by the servers it can be decrypted by the servers.  It would also mean that they would have the decrypted data.  This doesn't mean that they are spying on your traffic, only that they can, hence why you have to trust any VPN company you use.
