Editors' Review

+

Mask Surf Lite's claim to fame is that it offers users privacy while browsing the Web by providing a false IP address. However, when we put it to the test, it completely blocked us from browsing altogether.

We had to click the program's desktop shortcut several times before it appeared in our Taskbar. On several occasions, the Taskbar icon failed to appear at all. Eventually, right-clicking on the icon introduced options for changing the false IP address, as well as for performing a privacy test. Both features directed us to Web pages that weren't available. When we checked our IP address, it hadn't been changed, but we found that we were completely blocked from accessing any Web sites. The online tutorial offered during the installation process returned an error page when we tried to access it.

The program comes with a short, 15-day trial period, but we recommend that you skip this faulty browsing tool for one that offers reliable privacy protection.

"Well worth the money"

March 07, 2010  |  By thulemanden

 |  Version: Mask Surf Lite 2.5

Pros

Very easy to use and requires no network protocol knowledge. The fee is a one time expense and not an annual expense like several other services.

Cons

Not much, but it comes with very few languages but then again the text is limited.

Summary

For the current version I don't recognise the problems CNET editors had. The issues must have been fixed. Lite ed. worked better for me than Pro that had some problems with the country list. The software diligently warns, that using the TOR worldwide network slows down the surfing and thus not a fault in this software.
