How To Hide Your IP Address

How to Hide ip AddressYou’ve probably heard about IP (Internet Protocol) addresses and how they can be used to track your activity online but did you know it’s fairly easy to obscure your IP address to cover your tracks?

Since IP addresses are one of the primary identifiers on the Internet the ability to hide your IP address is very important from a web privacy and anonymity standpoint.

  • A Virtual Private Network (VPN)
  • Proxy servers
  • Tor
