Your IP address gives advertisers, your ISP and even the police tons of information about you. If you want to hide your surfing behavior, Easy-Hide-IP can issue you a new IP address whenever you want a change. It helps you stay anonymous on the Web, but isn't a totally comprehensive solution like a VPN or more powerful proxy.
Despite touting easy setup, the download takes longer than most because of registration. You have to give up your email address and then wait for a product key before you can start using the program. Then, if you want more than a three-day trial, it costs $29.95. Thankfully, once you make it through the time taking setup process, Easy-Hide-IP delivers dozens of different IP addresses to choose from. There are several different countries to choose, too. This makes it easy to circumvent region-locking on Web content. However, no matter what region you choose, your surfing will slow down to a crawl. The download doesn't stop all instances of third-party tracking either.
Though this program does exactly what it says, you could be disappointed. It hides your IP well enough, but a dedicated tracker could still hunt down your origin. For now, it's no better than Tor or websites that will give you a free proxy on demand to surf privately.
Easy-Hide-IP is an advanced IP changer to bypass virtually any form of censorship or internet traffic blocking imposed on you by your ISP, your company or by third parties. Your internet traffic is routed through remote servers. Only the IPs of the remote servers will appear your ISP's log file, not the sites you have visited. Easy Hide IP protects your identity by replacing your real IP address with a different one. You will appear to access the internet from a different location, not your own.
Your real location is never revealed. Change / hide IP address. Choose your geographic location. Access to our high speed servers. Automatically hide IP every X minutes. Works with Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. Just start the application, select an IP address to use and click on the 'Hide IP' button.
