caught-with-his-pants-downWhen using a *free VPN service such as Hotspot Shield, CyberGhost or Security Kiss always double check that your IP address is actually hidden.

Many free VPN’s offer a link to ‘test your protection’ after installation taking you to websites which tell you that you have a new IP, location etc but on further testing it is sometimes the case that your IP has not changed on certain IP locator sites such as whatismyip.com even if the VPN has told you that you have a different location, as a precaution follow the instructions below.

Install and run your free VPN, go to whatismyip.com and copy your ip address from there then go to iplocation.net and enter the copied ip address from whatismyip.com and it will give you the location of that IP address. If you are satisfied that the IP address does not belong to your ISP, fine, if not hang fire, try another free VPN and run the test again.

After many tests on ip locator sites one of the most accurate when using free VPN’s seems to be whatismyip.com.

*Free VPN providers should not be trusted outright where a client’s anonymity is concerned. See this article on multi-VPN security also  Which VPN Providers Really Take Anonymity Seriously? (TorrentFreak article)

A thread for the freedom of speech of the internet manifests in the repression through federal or private organizations.

More and more governments censor websites with the excuse of child safety, copyright infringement or the fight against terrorism and thereby limit the freedom of speech.

Also blocking users by based on their origin with GeoIP-Blocks is applied often, for example at Media platforms like YouTube.

With anonymoX your are able to bypass many sorts of blocks by jelling a virtual Identity in another Country with only a few mouse clicks.

Instead of accessing a website directly, it’ll be first opened by one of our servers, called Proxy.

This Proxy hides your true internet identiy and makes it look as if not you, but the Proxy is currently visiting the website.

anonymoX is cost-free in its basic version, which is made possible by including some ads. But we provide a chargeable Premium version allowing extended use of our anonymization network.

Please note our Guidline for proper use, if correct functionality and anonymity is very important to you.
