Why Hide My IP?
When you connect to the Internet, your computer is assigned an IP address, which is your unique identification number on the Internet. This number may contain information about where you are located, who you are, and what programs are running on your computer. Many websites and software applications use your IP address to track and profile your online activity. Using Hide My IP, you can conceal your identity online by showing these websites a fake IP located in a country of your choice, blocking hackers and prying eyes from knowing your true location or identity.
