How to Get a New IP Address and Surf the Web Anonymously

leave a comment »

Anonymous web surfing has become a necessity in the modern world, as more and more people are suffering different forms of identity theft when online. Also, the ever-increasing use of wireless hotspots is making your computer data easily accessible to hackers.The fact is that whenever you type a URL and click ‘enter,’ you are sharing your computer details with a Web server, which actually sends the webpage you have requested. The Web server can identify your IP address. This is usually linked to your name, address, phone number, and other personal information. The only way you can protect yourself from this version of identity theft is to get a new IP address. A new one will enable you to do anonymous web surfing.By using a Virtual Private Network (VPN), you can hide your original IP address and get a different one. This service is called a Personal VPN and is intended for home/personal use. With a personal VPN service, whenever you enter a URL and click ‘enter,’ the details of your computer goes to the VPN server instead of the Web server. This way, the Web server is given an alternate address to process the request.You can use this facility if you do not want the owners of the site you are visiting to know your IP address and location. This is very effective when making memberships in online forums. The VPN server can also perplex hackers, thereby delivering a safe and secure Internet browsing experience. Even more, your ISP will not see any details about the websites you visit as all your traffic with the VPN server is encrypted.In short, no matter where you are in the world, you can change your IP address and surf the Web anonymously with the help of VPN servers. They are the most trusted solution in the field and are safer than using proxy servers. Proxy servers could get your computer infected with all sorts of malware.
