5 Ways to Change Your IP Address and Browse Securely & Anonymously

Before you can enjoy the internet and browse safely, internet security is the very first thing you must think of. Securely surfing the internet gives you total freedom as you want but unknown to many, each time you connect your computer to the internet, every bit of your information is exposed and may be compromised Starting with your IP then to your browsing location, browser, devices, page you visited, your personal data can be accessed even without you knowing it.

Besides, browsing securely give you access to many restricted websites. Maybe your local IP has been restricted
or your country is being restricted and you don’t have access to certain sites, securely and anonymous browsing
gives you access to such restricted websites.

And to my fellow bloggers and webmasters, secure browsing ensures your data and your information are well secured, encrypted and not accessible to intruders. It will protect your personal data, your login details. This reduces the chance of your site getting hacked to a great extent.

5 Ways to Change Your IP Address and Browse Securely & Anonymously

1. Virtual Private Network

Abbreviated as VPN, Virtual Private Networks are are premium tools that change your IP address automatically as
soon as you set it up on your computer. Not all these VPN programs are free, to use  most of them you must subscribe
to the service with a little amount. For better performance with a VPN provider, a paid service is worth it. I have been using VPN for more than 2 years now and it has been helping a lot Here are the list of VPN you might consider using: PDProxy, HMAProxy, YourFreedom, Sandwich, etc.

2. Manually Change your IP

To be able to browse securely and anonymously, like I suggested you must get your real IP address changed. To
search for IP addresses for a specific location go to or click here to get our ip address updates. There are lots of sites where you can look for proxies but I always use hidemyass. Now I will briefly show you how to change your IP address manually. On Firefox, click on Tools > Options > click on Network tab >
Settings > click on manual Proxy Configuration > enter your Proxy and Port in the space provided and click OK.

3. Web Proxy

There are many sites online  in which changing of IP to an anonymous location is their main service or among their services. You can use this free proxy to surf anonymously online, secure your internet connection, hide your internet history, protect your online identity and more importantly, hide your IP address. I’m not giving  100% assurance in using online proxy sites to access restricted site and to change IP as sometimes those free web proxy are usually messed up and don’t give desired results. Here are short list of web proxies I have used so far: ,
