Best app to hide my IP Address

I received an invitation to join Spotify but I am blocked from signing up because it is not yet offered in CH.

Is anyone using a good 'anonymizer' app? Preferably a free one?

thnx

You need a proxy, something like this.

Re: Best app to hide my IP Address

I did a search, but did not come up with anything relevant. Searched with google and saw lots of options, so came back to EF for hands-on advice.

Re: Best app to hide my IP Address

Hotspot Shield.

Free. Works. Gives you a US IP address = watch US TV shows free on hulu.com

Or just fake like you are browsing from an IP address in the USA.

Re: Best app to hide my IP Address

Karl - Thanks...am now using Hulu. Was looking for something to access US shows.

For Spotify, I need a UK proxy (or Finland, France, Norway, Spain, Sweden), and so far everything I am finding looks dodgey. Any free ones that you folks are using?

thnx

Proxify looked good, but the free version would not allow me to do "transactions." Not ready to pay for a proxy service yet

Re: Best app to hide my IP Address

I use Spotify (pro, 10 quid a month). I signed up from the UK (got my brother to do it) and now I can just use it here. Im not sure if that's the case for the regular account.

Re: Best app to hide my IP Address

You can always use Tor to anonimize your surfing. But as people here said you need a proxy more than "hiding" your IP.

Re: Best app to hide my IP Address

You can use the regular Spotify service for up to 2 weeks at a time here, as if you were on holiday. But otherwise, you'd need to sign up for the premium service, which might require a UK credit card.

Re: Best app to hide my IP Address

You don't need IP spoofing software to watch US TV shows.

Just go to www.casttv.com and watch to your heart's content...limited to 3 hours per day if you don't subscribe, though.

That's enough for me to get my Grey's Anatomy fix.

Re: Best app to hide my IP Address

I use these: http://www.lamnia.co.uk/

It's less than £8 per month and it allows you to watch UK, Canada and US programmes. I highly recommend it.

Re: Best app to hide my IP Address

I would call someone in a "spotify country" (sweden) and get them to sign up, once you're signed up you can use it for quite some time without using a "proper" ip. There is a counter which counts the days since you last logged on from an ip in a "spotify country", but if you (or a friend) log on from a "proper" ip it is reset.

I've been using spotify quite a while now and whenever spotify complains I just ask a friend to logon with my credentials so the counter is reset. I don't think it's every 2 weeks, more like every 4 or 6 weeks, that's at least my experience.

Re: Best app to hide my IP Address

I heard HotSpotShield had loads of adware...is that no longer the case?

CastTV has worked fine for me.

Be careful - Lamnia are shockingly bad - so much so, I changed providers due to their non-existent support.....

Re: Best app to hide my IP Address

I use www.iprivacytools.com works perfect for me, I can mask my IP and also choose from a list of countries which IP proxy I want to use.
