Access An Egyptian IP Address Anywhere

Like any other country, Egypt has a unique internet zone. To access this unique internet zone, you need an Egyptian IP address. One option is to be in Egypt - that's obvious. But you can also use proxies and VPNs to change your IP. This means that you can be anywhere in the world and have an Egyptian IP address on your phone, computer, or TV.

Proxies are commonly used by students and hacker types to hide their identity online. Ok,so I'm a bit biased, but I don't think that anyone interested in changing their IP address should use proxies unless you're on a machine you don't own, and you don't access any personal accounts while connected to the proxy. Free (open) proxies are a security risk to your online identity, and potentially other parts of your accounts. Sharing an IP with a nasty proxy admin could be opening a door to your private information. Also, proxies are limited to web based activity, meaning that many apps and software won't be able to use your new IP, thus further exposing your real identity online.

VPNs do a much better job of hiding your real IP and providing you with the means to make use of your Egyptian IP. VPNs will work with all software and apps. Essentially, a tunnel is created between your internet connection device (smartphone, computer, TV), and all your traffic is then encrypted and send to the VPN server in Egypt. You're then assigned an Egyptian IP by the virtual network, and this is your 'front man' to the greater internet. By using a private network you also prevent outside companies and more importantly the Government from being able to see your information.

If you want an IP from Egypt to participate in political discussions or other types of controversial topics, be sure to be clear on the privacy policies of your VPN service, and how much tracking they do of your activity while connected to their VPN servers. Though most companies don't keep logs of your activities, they will use time stamps that can be used to be traced back to you. If you are living outside of Egypt, and us a non-Egyptian VPN service (with VPN servers in Egypt), then you shouldn't have any problems. However, if you use an Egyptian VPN service, or are currently in Egypt and using the 'anonymous IP' to hide your activity from the government, you MUST be clear on what data is stored, and what the VPN service's privacy policy entails.

Not everyone is interested in Revolution however, and some people may just want to access Egyptian television online. This isn't something I know much about, but I do know that most countries have exclusive streaming websites, and Egypt is bound to have their own as well. To unblock these sites, or at least to get them streaming faster, an Egyptian IP address is key.

Not all VPN services online have VPN servers in Egypt. Be sure to double check what countries each VPN service offers and which VPN servers you'll be able to access with the particular VPN package you choose. Some services require that you choose only one location, while others give you unlimited access to ten or more countries. You can use a VPN on Android, iPhone/iPad,Mac, Windows, and Linux.
