One day you may need to hide what you do online, you may don’t want to let people know which site you visits, where you logged in and/or there will once you wants to visit some site and don’t wants to let them know where you came from, what is your location, who you are!
Advance one already know that everyone left their footstep while online, there is always footprint which let caught you, most of the time it’s may be NOT a big issues though. BUT if you want to hide yourself, whatever the reason, how you can hide what you do online? How could you don’t let to LOG your location?
You can easily remove browsing ‘History’, Cached web data etc by erasing “Tool > Clear Private Data” if you use Mozilla Firefox, On ‘Internet Explorer’ ‘Tool > Delete Cookies/Delete Files/Clear History’. This is a good habit when you have to use shared PC.
Most people out there use Anonymous Proxies to hide there location. “Anonymous proxy servers hide your IP address and thereby prevent unauthorized access to your computer through the Internet. They do not provide anyone with your IP address and effectively hide any information about you and your reading interests. Besides that, they don’t even let anyone know that you are surfing through a proxy server.” Pick a Proxy here, point your browser to the proxy and the proxy will hide (?) your IP (and thus your location) to the wild. Most of the time it’s enough, thus you can use MegaUpload like services which sometimes restricted at some country, and they locate you only by your IP.
Why Should You Use Anonymous Proxy Servers?
Any web resource you access can gather personal information about you through your unique IP address � your ID in the Internet. They can monitor your reading interests, spy upon you and, according to some policies of the Internet resources, deny accessing any information you might need. You might become a target for many marketers and advertising agencies who, having information about your interests and knowing your IP address as well as your e-mail, will be able to send you regularly their spam and junk e-mails.
Hide IP Platinum/Softwares
Another popular and easy solution is to use software, for example Hide IP Platinum. Hide IP Platinum works by using public proxy servers too, NOTE THAT these software doesn’t really hide your IP, rather just sets your browser to point to a proxy. The problem with proxies is that you have little or no control over what information is ‘logged’ at the server or what information is passed on.
There is a nice project, TOR, http://tor.eff.org . Tor is an onion router (layered router-ing) and is an effective way to hide your IP as changes routes on every request, spider-ing thru a variety of servers before it gets to its final destination. Tor is therefore slower and will not work with some services (that require a constant IP between requests and some SSL services), but is more effective than just a proxy at securing your IP address.
Torpark, a very fine Tor implementation in conjunction with Firefox can be found at http://torpark.nfshost.com, you just copy it on an USB stick and can use it on any computer without the need of installing. It’s great, but as said before, sometimes it’s a little bit slow.
You may have heard about those heavily advertised second-rate software packages like Anonymizer, SafeSharing, InvisibleIP, SecretSurfer, etc. Well, not only do they charge you money and/or a subscription fee, but they are bloated and full of useless components. They also require an installation which leaves tracks on your computer. How is that anonymous? Try Torpark; its small, portable, clean, free of spyware/adware, and best of all its free of cost.
You can try the anonymouse.org too, and write the URL for the site that you want to visit! You can send anonymous emails and anonymous post to news groups too!
Many mice surf the web under the illusion that their actions are private and anonymous. Unfortunately, it isn’t so. Every time you visit a site for a piece of cheese, you leave a calling card that reveals where you’re coming from, what kind of computer you have, and other details. And many cats keep logs of all your visits, so that they can catch you!
This service allows you to surf the web without revealing any personal information. It is fast, it is easy, and it is free!
