Editors' Review

+

Although its proxy list presented several duds, Anonymity Gateway does eventually come through to allow anonymous Web surfing. The program has a stylish interface that's easy to configure and even easier to use. Simply select a proxy from the provided list or insert your own for testing.

Usable proxies are listed on the drop-down menu for browser use. Although we ran across several unusable proxies, we were inevitably able to hide our true IP address. Anonymity Gateway also cleared away our Internet Explorer history at user-defined intervals, but not our temporary Internet files as promised.

The program specifies Netscape, Opera, and Avant on its list of supported browsers, but only the ticker boxes to select Internet Explorer and Firefox are open. When you launch your browser, a page about the program's proxy server system, CoDeen, appears and then reroutes you to your home page. While it has more quirks than we'd like, Anonymity Gateway is a user-friendly method for anonymous Internet surfing that novices may want to try.

"Possible virus!"

February 17, 2010  |  By piratesmvp04

 |  Version: Anonymity Gateway 2.5

Pros

Don't know because I couldn't use it.

Cons

Uninstalled itself and screwed up my internet settings.

Summary

This product may be alright, but watch where you download it from. I installed it last night, and when I clicked the link to see my current ip address, it suddenly uninstalled itself by deleting all its program files. The folder was still there and it was still listed in Programs and Features. It also screwed up my internet connection so that I could browse. It said I had an active connection, but I could only use AIM and my desktop gadgets. No browser worked. I solved this problem by resetting my winsock settings by opening cmd as administrator and then typingnetsh winsock reset. I then rebooted and everything was back to normal. I will not download this program again.

"Doesn't work"

December 10, 2006  |  By UncleDuke

 |  Version: Anonymity Gateway 2.5

Pros

Nothing at all.

Cons

1. I keep getting this message: "You are trying to use a node of the CoDeeN CDN Network. Your IP address is not recognized as a valid PlanetLab address, so your access to CoDeeN does not include all HTTP types" and then the browser (Opera) locks up. Internet Explorer returns a site-not-found error.

2. I just wrote a negative review on IPHider, then downloaded this turkey to try something else, only to find this IS IPHider with a different logo.

3. When it did work, it slowed the system down - not to a crawl, but noticeably. That may be a common condition of proxy operation, I dunno.

"I bought it because it was the best I have encountered till now"

November 02, 2006  |  By jonny.dale

 |  Version: Anonymity Gateway 2.5

Pros

Since the last release they changed the proxy list and let me tell you... there are about 500 proxies in the list. I didn't like it this much back then (version 2.4) because I couldn't always find proxy addresses which I liked, but now sometimes I get annoyed there are so many proxy addresses :P.

It's a good software for online anonymity, and since I got into a little trouble last time I was innocently surfing the web, now I make sure all my traces are covered. You wouldn't belive how dangerous it is to just navigate freely.

"Works perfect"

November 02, 2006  |  By marlan70

 |  Version: Anonymity Gateway 2.5

Pros

Since I had to move to the United Arab Emirates to work there I can't access some sites because the UAE has a content filter which blocks pages from being displayed. Anonymity Gateway masks my IP address and now I can access those sites without any restrictions.
