                                              An Introduction To Anonymous Surfing
                                                              By Katerina Mitrou

    Privacy is a right most people practice everyday. It’s why bathrooms have doors and locks, cubicles
at the library are constructed to block out the glances of other patrons, voting laws that allow you to
cast a ballot anonymously exist, and commuters don’t sit on your lap in the subway (unless it’s really
crowded, of course!) So it’s no surprise that people expect a certain amount of privacy when surfing
the Internet. In fact, many people think their online activities are entirely anonymous – after all, no one
can see you in the World Wide Web, right?

Unfortunately, this is not the case. Internet browsing is not necessarily anonymous, even though it may
seem to be. First of all, your ISP (Internet Service Provider) has the ability to log all the sites your IP
(Internet Protocol) address visits. Your IP address is how your computer is identified every time you log
on to the Internet. Secondly, the actual websites you visit can easily track your IP address and log it for
future reference. Your IP address doesn’t specify your actual name, but it’s not difficult for the owner of
a particular website to link your IP address to your ISP.

It’s safe to assume most Internet surfers value anonymity online because that is what makes the
Internet a unique experience. For the first time in history, people from around the world with access to
a computer have been able to connect to each other, communicate, and share information without
having to disclose personal information. On the Internet your alias is your identity. It is this opportunity
to remain anonymous that has allowed many people to practice freedom of speech and use the
Internet as a tool of expression.

If used for legitimate activities, the Internet creates a forum in which the average person can
correspond with other people who share similar interests and discuss issues that might be cause for
embarrassment, reprimand, or persecution in other circles. For instance, using a pseudonym allows
the individual to be creative, lets concerned citizens voice discontent over corporate practices, and
makes it possible for mistreated minorities to express their feelings and discuss topics related to their
experience without fear of reprisal. As a source of information, the Internet is also a good place to
research sensitive topics, such as hair loss, without having to reveal your identity. It’s easy to see why
people might want to protect their anonymity in the virtual world.

You might want to remain anonymous online for other reasons as well. Some people require protection
from the government, employers, or corporations. Businesses use anonymous surfing to research their

competition incognito, while lawyers use it to visit websites that will help him/her make a strong case
for a client without disclosing their conduct to the party under scrutiny, which could compromise a case.
The average person wants to surf anonymously just to avoid the prying eyes of nosy websites and
aggressive marketing companies.

So how do you surf anonymously? The only way to keep your browsing habits under lock and key is to
hide your IP address using anonymous web browsing technology. Anonymous web browsing entails
the use of a proxy server, which is placed between you and the website you are visiting. Essentially,
your web browser “talks” to the proxy server (instead of directly to the website) and the proxy server
then “talks” to the website, shielding your IP address from view. The website only sees the proxy
server. Just make sure you choose a proxy server you trust because the proxy server will know your IP

Although all methods of anonymous surfing involve the use of a proxy server, there are several ways to
go about it. The first method works through another website. You simply visit the website of the proxy
server and then type the URL of the site you want to browse. You’ll then be taken to the website
through the proxy server.

Another method requires that you download a client application. This is a program that handles
everything, regarding the proxy server, on your behalf so you don’t have to worry about anything
except browsing.

An anonymous web proxy service is another way to remain anonymous online. With this method you
have to configure your browser to point to an anonymous web proxy, but once this has been
accomplished your browsing experience should be relatively hassle-free. These services are public
and exist for the sole purpose of anonymous surfing by proxy.

You can also set up your web browser to surf through your choice of an anonymous server – the
difference here is that an anonymous server does not advertise as a web proxy service. Instead, you
can find lists of these servers published on the Internet. Another difference: you might not know who is
running the service, and as a result, the server could potentially record your web traffic.

If you choose to employ a web proxy service, here are some things to look out for:

1. A reputable service should set up a TLS or SSL tunnel for you. This means network sniffers won’t be
able to eavesdrop on your surfing habits.

2. Choose a service that supports the protocols you want to use. Some services offer FTP, while
others only support HTTP. Some also offer HTTPS, but not all.

3. A good proxy service should do more than just hide your IP address. It should also remove traffic
such as cookies, scripts, pop-ups, banners, and referrer information. Just make sure you have the
option to configure these elements so that websites for which you need to use cookies and pop-ups
won’t be rendered unusable.

No matter how you choose to surf the web anonymously, you’ll surely rest easy knowing that your
privacy isn’t being compromised every time you log on.

                           IP Change and Anonymous Surfing is a Wall Against a Hacker
                                                              By Virender Labroo

Even a hacker can be challenged by clever techniques, among them IP change and anonymous
surfing. It's with good reason, too, because changing or hiding our IP address helps prevent the
malicious attackers from prying into our private data online. Changing or hiding our IP serves as a brick
wall or defense gate against hackers. With our location hidden at all times whenever we log into the
Internet, we are able to surf the Web anonymously.

 Anonymous surfing is brought about by a web proxy that filters and manages our IP addresses every
time we log onto the Internet. Anonymous proxies are generally difficult to track and so this becomes
useful for us computer users who want online privacy. With anonymous surfing we are able to browse
the Internet without worrying if a hacker has tracked down our real location. The proxy server will be
choosing a different IP from a pool of IP addresses that it has and use this as your fake IP address.

 We have a general idea of how cyber crimes are committed. We may not know what it is that a hacker
specifically does. But we do know that our personal and financial data online is not secure with them
prowling about the Web. Conservatively speaking, a majority of all computers are probably already
infected with some form of spyware that can serve as tracking systems. This will allow hackers to
obtain our usernames and passwords of our online accounts. Our financial accounts would be in
jeopardy the most. Our bank accounts online are targets for hackers, and we might already be giving
them what they want without us knowing about until it's too late.

 Identity theft and other serious cyber crimes are not unheard of anymore, as it was years ago. Viruses
and spyware technologies have also become more advanced and rampant. Our firewalls, antivirus
software, and antispyware programs are just not enough anymore. By the time anyone of us would
know what has happened, our data would have been already swiped out, our money stolen, and our
computers crashed.

 This is why anonymous surfing is being recommended to all online users. Hackers would usually go
first to our IP address before they would be able to figure out our personal data, our browsing history,
and our accounts and passwords. With this in mind, we can think that one way to avoid getting
scammed by hackers would be to hide our IP address. Anonymous surfing gives us this kind of
protection by changing our IP address every time we log onto the Internet.

 In changing our IP and using anonymous proxy, we can up our online security a little higher. We can
make it more difficult for the hackers to reach us. Why should we make things easy for them when all
they do is steal our information and ruin us? This can be done with anonymous surfing, where they will
have a hard time knowing who we are and our real location. We have made a wall for hackers with
anonymous surfing and IP change.
