Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This application lives up to its name by anonymizing your IP address, but several issues temper our enthusiasm. When you launch NetConceal Anonymizer, the tiny, bland-looking main window immediately begins testing a large list of proxies; the downside to this is it can take a good bit of time before it verifies a proxy. Once it does, it will show you the country from which the IP address will originate, though you also can click the Options menu to filter our certain countries. In some tests, the program worked without a hitch, but in others, we couldn't launch our browser after applying an anonymous IP. The program also appears to have some minor stability problems, as it hung up on occasion, though it never fully crashed. NetConceal Anonymizer uses 1080 ports, which are used by default for firewall compatibility, but if you know what you're doing you can configure this option for more proxy choices. Additionally, you can decrease network time-outs to obtain faster proxies, though we don't think the eight-use, 10-day trial is all that generous. Patient users seeking online anonymity might try NetConceal Anonymizer, but it's certainly not perfect.
