How to Hide My IP Address? Experts Answer!



Four cyber security experts tell how to hide your IP address, and more importantly, WHY you should change your IP address! Wanting to hide your IP address was used to be considered paranoid, now we just call it common sense. This hasn’t always been easy. In the past, wanting to hide my IP address meant using an anonymous proxy or other IP masking service, which was usually cumbersome, slow and expensive. Thankfully, things have changed.

These experts will talk you through the two best options available for hiding your public IP address: Tor Browser and personal VPN services like F-Secure FREEDOME. In this video you’ll also learn why private browsing or incognito mode is not enough to make you anonymous, and what kind of data can websites track from your IP address.

“If you’ve followed international news on business, tech or even politics lately, you’re likely to have seen the word “encryption” pop up all over the place. But while it’s often mentioned in the context of billion-dollar tech companies and superstar whistleblowers, it’s easy to forget that easy access to encryption greatly benefits even normal web users like you and me.”
