Encinitas, CA (Vocus) September 28, 2007
A new Web surfing tool finally allows computer users to surf anonymously on the Internet.
My Privacy Tools, Inc., which creates privacy protection software, released its hide IP software called Hide My IP.
IP, or Internet Protocol, refers to the unique number attached to every computer–sort of like an address used to locate a home. Advertisers, spammers, hackers, identity thieves, and government agencies routinely collect and use IP addresses to find names, street addresses, and other personal information.
Hide My IP (edition 2007) allows users to surf anonymously by installing a proxy IP address between their computer and the Internet. Users can then appear to be from various locations in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Hong Kong.
“Online privacy software like Hide My IP allows users to break the link between their exposed IP address online and their true identity,” says Brent Hather, from My Privacy Tools.
Hide My IP is compatible with Windows XP and Vista, web browsers like Internet Explorer and FireFox and works with dozens of instant messengers, E-mail clients, games and other Internet-based software.
