Editors' Review

+
This IP masker is one of the easiest to use of its kind, even though one selection feature comes up empty in the trial. Hide The IP's compactly designed interface has artsy toolbar buttons to search for and switch among available proxies. In no time, the program finds a useable proxy and delivers a little popup identifying the new fake IP from the system tray.

We like that you can add your own proxy list for the program to check and use. Its feature to select the originating country for your fake IP didn't list any locations in the trial version, so we had to settle for what ever it threw out. The interface shows your real IP and the new one you'll be surfing with. One click can jump you to another anonymous proxy.

As a bonus, Hide The IP has its own basic browser with minimal navigation buttons, though it is a tad slower than usual and the Stop Hiding button on the browser's toolbar doesn't work. The trial gives a tight three days, but with all of the slow, unreliable IP maskers out there, any level user will welcome this program's effectiveness.

"Trial version to restricted to use"

January 17, 2009  |  By paulsmith335

 |  Version: Hide The IP 2.1.1

Pros

Interface seems easy to use.

Cons

Most people need this product to connect via a specific country, however this feature is disabled unless you buy. I was ready with my credit card but no way will I buy a product I can't test. Fully functional for 2 or 3 hours would be enough.

Summary

I am now going to find another product to use which I can fully test and evaluate before buying. I will pay $60 or $70 for something which works.

"Extremely easy to use."

November 18, 2008  |  By cliffclark

 |  Version: Hide The IP 2.1.1

Pros

Easy to use. Quick Setup. No Bugs. Always finds a fast and Elite Proxy.

Cons

It doesn't let you use the same ip repeatedly. You have to just go with whatever it finds.

Summary

I'm not sure why it's rated so low. The Pros far outweigh the Negatives here. Fast setup. Works with Vista fine. Never locks up. Always finds an Elite, fast Proxy. Elite = virtually untraceable. Okay so you can't choose the same ip over and over but I'm assuming they'll add this feature in the future. Right now though, it serves my purposes better than any other HIDE IP software I've tried. And I've tried TWENTY.

"Does NOT hide my IP!"

November 07, 2008  |  By mrgmyers

 |  Version: Hide The IP 2.1.1

Pros

Looks simple enough

Cons

This program did NOT hide my IP!
I started the program and them opened my Firefox browser went to whatismyip.com and hey presto my real IP is displayed this program is not really a lot of help

Summary

I am sure I am not the first person to have this problem some simple help files could have perhaps saved the reputation of this program.

"BAD LINK DON'T USE THIS PRODUCT FROM CNET"

November 03, 2008  |  By LilyGracie

 |  Version: Hide The IP 2.1.1

Pros

I like nothing about it

Cons

Avast warning of a virus. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS. I only gave it a ONE because they would NOT allow a ZERO rating.

Summary

I have ALWAYS used cnet and now I am thinking that perhaps it's not the best way to get the programs we need or want.

"Tried it..............."

October 17, 2008  |  By RollTide777

 |  Version: Hide The IP 2.1.1

Pros

but didn't like it at all. Once I purchased the software I had a very difficult time trying to log on to the net. Searching for an IP address takes a ver long time.

Cons

Will I recieve a refund?? I asked for one but we will see. JUNK JUNK JUNK.

Summary

The address' it connected to may be the problem but I do not have the time nor patience to find out. It should do what it say's with out flaws.

"Works well."

September 13, 2008  |  By webafella

 |  Version: Hide The IP 2.1.1

Pros

Works fine and does hide your IP and works with utorrent which is great.

Cons

The browsing is very slow and some web pages did not load. The trial keeps reminding you aggressively that you are trying the programme and I find their marketing and sales to aggressive.

Summary

I was going to buy it but I do not like the way the trial keeps reminding you that you are using a trial. I find this to aggressive.
