How to Surf the Web Anonymously

The truth is that by connecting to the Internet, you share information about your computer, your geographical location and even about the Web sites you visit. Anonymous surfing is the ability to surf the Web without being tracked. The main idea of anonymous surfing is to hide your online activity that may potentially expose your personal information to others. By surfing anonymously, no one knows who you are, where you’re connecting from or what sites you are visiting.

By using “sniffers” somebody could discover your IP address, cookies, what kind of computer you’re using – they could even connect to your hard drive and access your private files, including pass visited sites, passwords and banking information.

Web sites and other hackers can dig out information about you including your IP address. You can be found and tracked using your IP address very easily. Your IP address gives hackers an entryway into your computer.

Is it possible to surf the web anonymously? Stopping these hackers in their tracks?  Yes. However, nothing is fail-safe – but it makes it very difficult for anyone to know who you are. There are products called anonymous proxy servers that help protect you.

Proxy servers work by retrieving Web pages for you. They hide your IP address and other important browsing information, so the remote server does not see your information – but sees the proxy server’s information instead. It’s like having someone drop you off at a neighbour’s home – and after they drive off, you return to your real home. They will have no idea where you really reside.

Surfing with an anonymous proxy site/service is a very simple process: all you do is enter in the URL you’d like to visit anonymously into your proxy server, and you’ll be able to surf leaving virtually no trace that you were ever there.

When you surf the web – you leave traces of your Internet activity everywhere! And, this can eventually lead to your true identity. Any url you access can record information about you such as your IP address, location, browser type, web pages last visited and other vital information that you might want to keep private.

Hackers are very serious. They can get access to your private information – steal personal information and enter your computer via security holes to cause damage to your computer.

It is estimated that nearly 90% of all computers are infected with some sort of spyware/malware that may allow hackers to discover your passwords and bank account numbers — basically giving them access to anything and everything on your computer.

There are many software vendors who sell anonymous proxy servers. However, There are also free proxy servers available. One really cool starting point for proxy servers is proxy.org – they have lot’s of information on proxy software and free proxy servers. A must see site for anyone looking to surf the web anonymously.

Another thing to remember about protecting yourself online. Get a good firewall. A good firewall is very important in protecting yourself online and off. A very good site to visit is firewallguide.com – Learn how to protect home computers and networks from the hazards of the Internet by using personal firewall and anti-malware software.

Which free anonymous proxy should I use?

Often people will want to know and will ask me, what would be the best free anonymous proxy to use? Honestly there is no clear cut answer to that question. Proxies that appear to be good may disappear from use on the internet within an hour. So even if I was to recommend a very good fast proxy that would keep you safe online, by the time you got to the end of reading this article it could be gone and no longer be usable.
