Yes, lets all rush off and use this free software. After all, it's recommended by two people with their first posting on this forum. One from Czech Republic, one from Canada. And replying to a thread which is 3 years old. So, the software must be brilliant and 100% safe, no?

Whats that smell around here?

I wrote on this thread years ago and ended up using Witopia. It's been super. I pay for it and it works. I can even still access US Netflix.
Good idea lets have our data on the computer copied by an unknown and untrusted thrid party

Re: Best app to hide my IP Address

I'm not sure what you mean Wallabies? I agree the above two posts are suspect, but I've been a member for years and just wanted to add that I found a solution to my problem. I really don't believe that they have copied anything from my computer ???? Some people need IP/VPN software, why does that mean their data is getting copied?

In other words you know nothing about computer security and how easy your computer can be copied.

Unless you know the security risk of an app there is every possibility that it can compromise and steal details off your computer. Being a VPN is a perfect disguise to make you think you are safe when in fact you may be wide open

Are you OK? Why so aggressive on the Internet in this fine morning?

Every app that you install can pose a security risk. VPN, game, etc. There are ways to protect yourself from viruses or trojans, but there is no bulletproof way to protect yourself; and it is generally good to know what you do when you install software.

Re: Best app to hide my IP Address

I am the OP and ended up going with www.unblock-us.com.

It has worked well for several years now. My only complaint is I seem to need to
reactivate it occasionally. Not sure if that is User error, or a problem on their side. Cost is about $50.00/yr.

Yesterday I saw an ad for Getflix (http://getflix.com) offering a similar service for $49 lifetime membership. I will have a look, but i don't know anything about them.

No affiliation with either company...
