An IP (Internet Protocol) address allows your computer to connect with others over the internet. The IP address allows the web to find your device amongst the billions of others connected to it.

Of course, this also means that attackers can track what you’re doing online. If someone can see your IP address, they can watch and log your internet activity and see exactly what you’re up to.

You can easily find your IP address by simply Googling “IP address.” It’ll show you yours.

By hiding your IP address, you’re making it harder to people to track you online. Also, it’s important if you’d like to access some websites and services that aren’t available in your country. Your hidden IP helps prevent websites from logging your visits.

Most importantly, though, hiding your IP address hides your physical location, stops you from being tracked online and brings the anonymity back to browsing the internet.


Today, we’re going to see the easy installation of Zenmate extension to Google Chrome:

1- Check your IP address location at https://www.iplocation.net/

2- Install the Zenmate extension at the following link:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/zenmate-vpn-best-cyber-se/fdcgdnkidjaadafnichfpabhfomcebme?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog

3- Change your location at Zenmate extension after signing up and completing the registration.

 

That’s it! Hope this was helpful.

  1. Is PIA good hiding your ip? It doesmn’t seem to leak but I’m not sure…

    • PIA is a wonderful VPN solution, nobody has been V& using it yet and when you subscribe you also get access to a SOCKS5 proxy that has enough people using it to be effective. The server in Switzerland is my personal recommendation as it is the most secure.

  2. Do you know that your Ip address still leaks with such vpn extensions. read the webrtc sectin here

    And never use a vpn extension atleast.

  3. Thanks worked.

  4. Mine Favorite is Hotspot shield..

  5. I used resource https://2ip.ru/privacy/ for testing Zenmate.

    • I have just tested the result my self on this website and the extension works very fine , make sure that Zenmate icon is green and location is changed from upthere 🙂
