Changing or hiding your IP address is one of the biggest concerns of all hackers. The IP Address can reveal your identity; it’s your online address.

If anyone can find your actual online address (IP Address), tracing it back to you wouldn’t be that difficult. Thus, it’s very important to hide or change your IP address before doing any kind of hacking attack or even thinking of doing one.

After getting hundreds of requests on a tutorial on how to hide your IP address, I’m writing this overview on how to hide or change your IP address.


Let’s begin…

We’re using the proxy service called PRO VPN from Hide My Ass. What’s that? Let me explain in detail.

We all know about proxy servers. They help us to hide our IP address or change the IP address, but there are many things you guys might not know:

  1. Free proxies are not completely anonymous: your IP can be disclosed by the website owner to the authorities, if needed.
  2. Companies limit the maximum speed of browsing in free proxies: if your internet speed is 8 Mbps, using free proxies, you can browse internet with a speed of only 265 Kbps. This is irritating, isn’t it?
  3. Many Webmasters can block users accessing free proxies.

There are different type of proxies. I wanted a reliable and elite proxy, which could help me completely hide my online identity. What else could I do instead of changing my IP address every minute?

I looked for many solutions online and found PRO VPN from Hide My Ass. To be very honest, in the beginning, I was a bit confused when I saw the software. I wasn’t sure if it would work the way I wanted, but then I gave it a try. I tried it for a month and it helped me secure my online identity.

Here are benefits I got after using the PRO VPN from Hide My Ass:

  1. Superfast, high speed elite/anonymous proxies. Elite proxies are 100 times more secure than free proxies.
  2. I could select the countries’ for whom I wanted IP addresses with just one click. It offers over 38000+ unique IP Address from 53 different countries.
  3. I can set the timer to automatically change the IP Address. This way, my IP Address gets changed every minute without me bothering to do so. If I’m implementing a hacking attack, no one could actually find my actual IP Address, so I am always on the safe side.
  4. It anonymously encrypts all the traffic and works with all kind of platforms. Unlike free proxies, the PRO VPN of Hide My Ass is not blocked by the websites. The traffic seems to be from legitimate human users, not proxies. No one can catch you using them.

  1. it coming with a subscription fee this should have been included in your write up

  2. You should check CyberGhost. Here is a review of it http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2427661,00.asp

    • Just in case, CyberGhost does not keep logs. Here is the reason why:

      Does CyberGhost log? No!

      Do we log, keep logs, protocol surfing behaviors or record content, visited websites or IP addresses of our users? No! Why? People in non democratic countries (so maybe YOU!) are in real danger, just for expressing their opinions. If we implemented backdoors,deep packet inspections or store information about our users and share those with authorities regardless their origins, we would risk the lives of people.We will not do that! Ever!

      WE DO NOT LOG REAL IP ADDRESSES, WE DO NOT LOG ASSIGNED SERVERS, WE DO NOT LOG LOGIN OR LOGOUT TIMES. WE DON’T LOG ANY HARDWARE INFORMATION ABOUT (e.g. computer name) AND WE DON’T MERGE ANY REAL DATA (like purchase data) INTO ACCOUNT DATA. WE DO NOT LOG TRAFFIC DATA (e.g. which website are visited) NOR ANY INFORMATION SENT VIA A CYBERGHOST SERVER.

      We don’t want you to blindly trust us, either. We want you to be suspicious and think for yourself, but, of course, we will do anything necessary to earn your trust. Please consult our other topics here regarding the safety of your identity with CyberGhost (such as the PUK, your emal address, etc.), and contact us any time you feel the need to have some questions answered. We also agree to invite civil rights and net activists or NGO members to our headquarters, to study our source code as well as our locations.

    • Thanks for this

  3. i like this please i need more of your help please

  4. I have not used HideMyAss personally. But I have done research on what VPNs are most secure and will actually cover you if there’s ever an investigation on activity you preform. From what I have seen about HideMyAss is They keep logs of everything you do and will gladly turn that information over to anyone with a court order. While the service may be fast and change your IP address that is useless when the provider is logging everything and will turn it all over upon request. Your best bet is to find a VPN provider that does not keep any logs. Also keep in mind how you will be paying for this VPN. There are some out there that let you pay with BTC, or gift cards. I personally recommend PIA (Private Internet Access).

    • Excellent, Go0se. Thanks! I was curious about this when I was reading, myself. =]

    • I’m glad that someone pointed this out (others may have as well). In the end, cash is king, so if you have the money to spend doing it then so be it. Unmarked cash (BTC, gift cards, etc.) are also essential if one is attempting to become anonymous. VPN is the way to go in that same respect.

  5. thanks for the advice
