When you connect to the internet, your computer is assigned an IP address, which is your unique identification number on the Internet. This number may contain information about where you are located, who you are, and what programs are running on your computer. Many websites and software applications use your IP address to track and profile your online activity. Using Hide My IP, you can conceal your identity online by showing these websites a "fake IP" located in a country of your choice, blocking hackers and prying eyes from knowing your true location or identity.
What exactly does Hide My IP do?
When Hide My IP runs, it sets your web browser proxy settings to show the a fake IP from our IP database. You will then be able to browse the Internet with your favorite web browser while remaining totally anonymous. When you stop running Hide My IP, your web browser settings will revert back to normal (without the fake IP).
Did you know your IP address is exposed every time you visit a website? Your IP address is your online identity and could be used by hackers to break into your computer, steal personal information, or commit other crimes against you. Hide My IP allows you to surf anonymously, change your IP address, prevent identity theft, and guard against hacker intrusions, all with the click of a button.
