With internet security becoming ever more important a lot of people are looking to mask their IP address. Privacy is a big issue at the moment and we?ve all had a surprise when internet advertising targets us directly knowing where we live. That unsettling sharing of information can be prevented by hiding your IP address with free software like Free Hide IP.
Hide your IP with a few clicks.
Your IP address is essentially a number assigned to your internet connection which can be reverse-traced to find your location or your ISP account. Free Hide IP is software designed to mask your IP so that ads and companies cannot easily access this information. Designed to work with all windows versions and both 32-bit and 64-bit this software sits in the background and is pretty unobtrusive. You can even choose which country your IP appears to come from useful if a website blocks certain countries. The software itself is very basic but easy to figure out.
Pretty basic but effective.
Free Hide IP is not revolutionary software but it does its job well. You can use this to gain some privacy online for free though the selection of countries is limited until you go pro. One downside to this software is that like most VPNs rerouting your connection can slow it down.
