IP Hider Services and Non-PC Platforms


Part II of How to change IP Address MAC, Windows, Linux, Android or iOS

IP hiding software doesn't hide your IP from inside your machine: it simply sets up the connection between your device and the remote web proxy server. When you hear of Android proxy software, a VPN client or a Mac proxy program – that's all it usually is, IP hiding software that simply connects your device to the anonymizing web proxy. Custom free VPN software is the exception – as it offers many useful features like automatically changing proxies every 10 minutes to enhance your IP anonymity.
