“Anonymous web surfing.” That’s like, the Holy Grail of the internet right? I mean, since I STARTED on the internet people have been trying to find all kinds of ways to hide their tracks. Now, obviously, there are TONS of reasons-and we don’t need to get into the details, so basically, you do your thing and I’ll do mine. In fact, that’s what brings me to this point; I need to do “my thing.” So I am going to tell you how I found the best type of service at the best price to stay invisible online.
For years now whenever I build a computer for myself I usually set it up to more or less protect myself. But I have gotten lazy in terms of hiding any evidence of where I was. But that’s mostly because I’ve switched to “making money online” and pretty much reduced my personal internet behavior to just like 5 or 10 percent of what I do once the computer is on. But things are changing so I need to do a few personal things, and like a said personal security is something I got lazy about, and as a result I got spammed to hell in the last month. So it’s time to get secure.
So the first solution people usually jump to is proxy servers. Most people these days use proxies to get around school or work blocks so they can go to Facebook, Myspace, Twitter etc., They use web based proxies. And the slightly more advanced people use HTTP proxies. This is pretty easy to do, you tell your browser where to go. Then you go online and find a site that has a bunch of proxies. For instance, here’s the Firefox addon called FoxyProxy.
And here is one of those proxy sites.
Or you could use a piece of software that more or less does some of the work for you like this one.
The Problem With Proxies?
Well there are actually a FEW problems with proxies. They’re cool if you only need them for a short time like a few minutes of the day. But long term? Forget about it. That’s the nature of the beast. One goes up, two go down. They pop up and disappear every minute of the day.
SOME proxies have good speed, but most don’t. And you need tools to tell you which ones are fast.
You can’t always find a good one in THE COUNTRY you need. Sometimes you need to look like you’re in the US, but sometimes you want to look like you’re someplace else
They get blocked out of a lot of sites. Some proxies “look like” proxies to websites and some don’t, you have to keep searching around. But every websites can tell if they proxy is setup that way. Check it out.
Anonymous VPN is The Way to Go
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a secure and stable way to get on the internet. They don’t even keep logs. They do not care WHERE you go (for the most part). So which one should you use? Well there’re a lot out there and it depends on how many tools you need. But I searched and looked through about 22 of them. The basic price for most of them was 24.95 and 14.95. But I managed to find one for $4.95 a month AND they even have free options.
They’re called Invisible Browsing VPN and they’ve got the full suite of features. Stop by their site, or BETTER YET, bookmark this site or their site then go look on the web for better prices with similar services. And you’ll get a pretty big surprise. What I’m saying is, you can get on the internet, hide your tracks, have a secure way that’s always available and costs almost nothing.
