Hide IP address, Free software?

Asked by windex (2916 points ) December 4th, 2008

Does anyone know a Free “Hide IP” software that I can download? Speed is not an issue (if it’s slow it’s ok)
Also, I will NOT be doing ANYTHING illegal. Just don’t want to make sure someone I am emailing does NOT find out where I am. (bs Drama, someone from my past I cut off)

Would appreciate ANY help you can give me.
Thanks
Got a few “trial” ones which were OK
Thanks

Do it via a proxy. It’s really simple. http://proxy.org

Torpark would work. Hotspot Shield too.

If you’ve cut this someone off, and you aren’t interested in BS or drama, why are you emailing him or her in the first place?

cwilbur makes a good point, for the record. Proxies work well. :)

@aanuszek1: PG2 is not an option for this user. It doesn’t hide your IP, it just blocks other’s IPs. And if you’re using it to prevent yourself from getting a cease and desist from your ISP, PG2 is utter BS. Nothing can hide you from the authorities, and sometimes all the IP address blocking vastly slows your speeds down too.
