How It Works
When you browse the Internet normally, your computer makes a direct connection to the websites you visit. With Hide My IP running, an anonymous proxy server is set to relay information between you and the websites you visit, hence web sites see the fake relay IP and not your real IP address.
Where are these fake IP addresses located? Hide My IP selects a random IP from a list of hundreds of anonymous fake IPs from all over the world. The chosen IP is then automatically installed into your web browser, e-mail client, game, or other application you specify Hide My IP to work with, allowing you to surf the Internet and use Internet-based software while remaining totally anonymous.
