Editors' review

Mask Surf Pro addresses many of the issues associated with Tor anonymizers, from security to implementation, to keep your online activities safe, secure, and private. It's not free nor especially cheap compared to similar tools, but a streamlined interface, automatic browser integration, masking, and other features help Mask Surf Pro earn its keep.

Pros

Pro-level: Mask Surf Pro has everything in the freeware plus features geared for advanced users and professionals, such as country emulation, switchable anonymity tests, and the ability to set your PC as a Tor client, relay, or bridge.

Tor your way: Installation options include regular and portable versions and starting with Windows. Users can also opt for the Mask Surf Lite freeware.

Informative interface: Mask Surf Pro's user interface sports tabs for Status, Countries, Speed, Masking, Contribution, and Tor Log. The Status tab displays popular browsers and displayed Detected and Anonymized status for each browser in our system.

Cons

Not much Help: Mask Surf Pro's Help file only leads to a Web page where you can submit a support ticket. That's not much help if you're not already an expert. More documentation is needed.

Bottom Line

Mask Surfer Pro adds advanced capabilities to an already effective tool. It works well, even if it could use more upfront help and guidance for new users.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Mask Surf Pro 3.5.

    "Do NOT buy this"

    Version: Mask Surf Pro 2.3

    Pros

    Works, but so many bugs to it.

    Cons

    The company no longer supports the product so do not buy this garbage as you will have a ton of bugs with it.

    Summary

    The company no longer supports the product so do not buy this garbage as you will have a ton of bugs with it.

    Disregard it, the company does still support the software and it works great. I had a problem and never heard back from them, but it was an issue with their support system. This Mask Surf works GREAT!!

    "Well-designed, effective, strong!"

    May 15, 2009   |   By MARCOKNULP--2008

    Version: Mask Surf Pro 2

    Pros

    This product is excellent!

    Cons

    Several occasions of hanging occured, especially when I tried to choose a specific country among the list of IPs. I needed to change back the settings in the internet connection properties to let the system connect again after it was terminated.

    Summary

    Unlike many other IP hiders, it easily creates a proxy circle so that your IP constantly changes, which makes you virtually untracable on the net. It worked even with VPN connections (which normally does not allow many other filtering bypassers like ultrasurf or invisible browsing to get through and connect). It is rapid in getting started and does the job automatically enough to let the novice enjoy the service.
