Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
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.

Developer's Description

You can turn each feature on and off independently. The features run automatically in the background. Prevent banner ads and e-commerce applications from logging your Internet address without your permission. Block pop-ups, erase cookies instantly, and block ActiveX controls, which can harbor malicious code (viruses); most sites will function properly with ActiveX Controls disabled. Block invasive code (JavaScript); though JavaScript can provide helpful functions on Web sites, it also can aid in capturing your IP address. Your computer can store the entire content of the pages you visit on your hard drive, which can add up to a large amount of storage space.
