The Extras Hide My IP And Similar Packages Give You

Aug 18, 2007
Software packages like masking IP software are important to web users who want to hide their Internet using habits. As the name itself suggests, these packages hide the IP of the user and provide a fake IP address due to which the user's computer cannot be traced on the Internet. With this done, there is no way that anyone can hack into the computer, or find out what websites the computer has browsed. This is the greatest security that can be accorded to any computer that is connected to the Internet.

Though the benefits provided by fake IP producing software are unbeatable in terms of protecting the privacy of the users, there are some more important tools that are bundled with the software. Each of them is designed at providing added security to the user, or to enhance the overall Internet browsing experience. Masking IP software, one of the most popular of such packages, is bundled with several peripheral programs. The following is a list of some of the beneficial programs that come with the package or can be bought as an add-on later:-

(i) Cookie Remover. When any website loads on your computer, some temporary files get installed on your system. These are known as cookies. Cookies are unique to websites. So by looking at the cookies, one can easily find out which websites you have been to. Cookies are installed in a folder on your computer, from where they should be deleted regularly. But oftentimes, people forget to do so, and their Internet browsing footprints remain on the computer. Cookie remover software can automatically disable cookies, or can remove them after the browsing is done.

(ii) File Shredder. Deleting a file from your computer relocates it into the recycle bin. If it is not deleted from there, it could remain in the bin. Even after deleting from the bin, the file can be recovered. However, file shredders can delete any file permanently from the system, making it impossible to recover by any means.

(iii) Spyware Blocker. Spyware is an unsolicited program that is bundled with some programs that you may download from the Internet. When spyware gets installed on your system, it can monitor all your computer using habits and can report it to the provider of the spyware. Certainly, this is very detrimental to your Internet using privacy. However, there are spyware blocker programs which can prevent any spyware programs that are trying to get installed on your computer. These come with packages that fake your IPaddress.

With such added features, your Internet security is enhanced and you can have a better and safer browsing experience. Almost all leading fake IP providing software, such as masking IP software, have these features bundled into them.
