Main Features of Hide My IP
Hide My IP 5.3 is the latest release of Hide My IP’s VPN software. Like prior releases, this version of the program sets your internet browser to show fake IP addresses from the Hide My IP database, enabling anonymous web surfing while online. But it also offers a variety of extra features, including the ability to un-ban yourself from forums and internet message boards by using Hide My IP to change your IP and clear your browser’s cookies. This method also allows you to access regionally banned websites, including gambling websites outside the United States.
Hide My IP is exceptionally easy to use. All you have to do is launch their software and click the “Hide IP button”, and your internet traffic becomes totally anonymous. Better yet, Hide My IP will automatically adjust your browser’s settings to achieve the greatest degree of internet anonymity possible. This includes the ability to send emails anonymously from any e-mail service, keeping those who receive the e-mails in the dark about your actual geographic location and identity. Hide My IP also offers a premium service add-on that can hide your IP in a variety of common software applications including MSN Messenger, ICQ, Yahoo, Windows Mail, Outlook, etc.
Once Hide My IP is activated, your online identity is protected from criminals, hackers, government officials, and even your internet service provider. All of your web traffic is protected under a 128-bit SSL encrypted connection. Your internet traffic is also redirected to an anonymous proxy relay server that acts as a third party between you and the rest of the internet. This third party server protects the privacy of your connection by giving you a fake IP address, selected randomly from a list of hundreds of available fake IPs from around the globe.
And to top it off, Hide My IP 5.3 comes with an IP Auto-Rotation feature that allows your IP to be changed every few hours automatically.
