Editors' review

Though this program enables the user to browse the Web by way of an anonymous proxy, some patience is required in utilizing its IP masking facility. Browser Fortress Online Privacy, Security, & Anonymity will not only hide your IP address for Web-surfing privacy, it blocks annoying pop-ups and ActiveX Controls for easier browsing. Though it takes a few minutes to test the proxy server availability, it's worth it. You can select a proxy near you or add your own. A prompt will inform you if the proxy you've selected isn't available, and you can simply choose a new one. In addition, this application will clear your histories, caches, temporary Internet files, and cookies. The interface is relatively boring, but this is still a highly effective privacy tool. Browser Fortress Online Privacy, Security, & Anonymity offers a trial period that ends after only 2MB of data transfer; nevertheless, users looking to maintain online privacy should give this program a try.

    "Spyware is far from "ANONYMITY," folks!"

    January 15, 2006   |   By hrchongkong

    Version: Browser Fortress Online Privacy, Security & Anonymity 1.5

    Pros

    was unable to use it, due to details listed below.

    Cons

    My Norton Internet Security 2006 picked it up as a "HIGH" risk spyware, which was found in Browser Fortress. It classified the following: Overall risk impact is HIGH, performance risk is HIGH, Removal of the program is HIGH, stealth is high, and last but not last, the biggie, "PRIVACY, which is also HIGH RISK. So this product does NOT provide privacy, but does the opposite. Norton classifies it as a Spyware. Security response from Norton states: ComSurveilSys is a sypware program that logs keystrokes, captures screenshots, and monitors Internet activity. The gathered information can be sent to a predetermined email address. Do you want this on your workstation or network? Spend your money and use "Proxy Switcher Pro."

    "It doesn't work"

    January 23, 2005

    Version: Browser Fortress Online Privacy, Security & Anonymity 1.5

    Summary

    Because of some unknown reason it just didn't work by me. Probably IE should be trimmed (proxy settings and so) but there're absolutely no any help files or informations with this product. Too bad...

    "It sucks!"

    June 04, 2004

    Version: Browser Fortress Online Privacy, Security & Anonymity 1.5

    Summary

    Hard to work. Doesn't even work properly. 'Use at your own risk' due to 3rd party maintenance of proxys. Uninstaller doesn't fully uninstall it and even when you try to remove it manually it says access denied. An absoulte scam, don't waste your time on it.

    "Don't Believe The Hype!"

    May 24, 2004

    Version: Browser Fortress Online Privacy, Security & Anonymity 1.5

    Summary

    This program messed up my entire IE browsing experience. First, the program inexplicably would not allow me to navigate to many sites. Second, it changed my registry by putting an advertisment for the product on IE's title bar. STAY AWAY. I think the positive reviews are from the craetors or something.

    "Be Careful"

    May 21, 2004

    Version: Browser Fortress Online Privacy, Security & Anonymity 1.5

    Summary

    The majority of reviews seem to praise the software's ability to totally hide your IP- thus obtaining total anonymity--IT DOES NOT PROVIDE TOTAL ANONYMITY...watch how you plan to use this software kiddies...and always play nice...someone can always see you if they really want to...
