Protect your privacy online with Free Hide IP

There are various ways in which your identity and location can be worked out online, and your IP address can play large part in this. While the IP address you are using may not make it possible for someone to personally identify you, it can be used by web sites to determine which country you are in. Free Hide IP is, as you have probably guessed from the name, a free way to hide your real IP address and help protect your privacy.

The program works by filtering your web traffic through a proxy so you are assigned a fake IP address. To save you from having to remember to launch the program every time you feel the need to surf the internet anonymously, it can be configured to start automatically with Windows, and you can then opt to just stop the tool when you no longer need its services – enabling and disabling IP address hiding is just a couple of clicks away.

Free Hide IP works with Internet Explorer, Opera and Firefox, with an extension being available for the latter browser. The free version of the app is limited to spoofing IP address in the US, and if you want to be able to choose different countries you will need to upgrade to the Pro version.

If you are currently outside of the US, the free version provides a great way to gain access to country specific web sites, but if you are living in the States it still gives you a quick and easy way to help protect your privacy when you are online. The Pro version also gives you the option of automatically changing your IP address every few minutes.

Verdict:

One of the easiest ways to spoof your IP address we’ve found – this is quick and painless to use.

Hide IP for Windows Phone

Posted by: Neil Sandilands, 05 June 2013 01:54

Just tried to download this on my Nokia Lumia 920 as it says that Windows Phone is one of the operating systems. Message comes back "We can't download this file, because Windows Phone doesn't support this file type". Does anyone know of an app for IP mask that will work on Lumia 920 Windows Phone???????

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
