IP Address Hiding Software for Windows

It's important to use the right type of IP address hiding software for Windows, because not all types of software work in the same way, and not all will produce the same results. Here are some examples of types of software and what they're used for.

Proxy Software

There are many types of proxies on the internet, and some are software based. To tell you the truth, many of the proxy software sites I researched didn't respond to my emails, or I was unable to complete the purchasing for, which makes me think the owner of the site is MIA or they were fraudulent. Some did however, and some even had live support.

Proxies can be a fast way to hide the IP of your browser. Some use data encryption, and proxy IPs frequently change, thus making you more anonymous online. Server selection was limited, and there are some limitations to the level of anonymity you can achieve with a proxy, but their services were often cheaper than other options.

PPTP VPN Software

PPTP was designed quite a while ago, and as far as encryption and anonymity goes, it's a bit outdated. however, it's easy to set up, works will all versions of Windows, and is widely available. For users who want to hide their IP address to unblock streaming and downloading sites, this is a good option because you can save precious bandwidth.

OpenVPN Software

OpenVPN is open source software that also works will all versions of Windows. Each VPN service will have a unique version of OpenVPN supported by their servers. OpenVPN is the type of software you want to choose if you're changing your IP for privacy and anonymity online.


This is an actual Microsoft product, so is a good option for Windows users. Unfortunately it's currently only supported by Win 7 and Vista. SSTP is not as widely available as OpenVPN, but some services have it as an option.

IP hiding services

Generally proxy and VPN services are separate businesses, but some do offer both options. Prices, options, server locations, encryption details and other feature will vary greatly, so do you homework. Some VPN review sites also do proxy comparisons. If I had to choose one, I'd use a VPN because software based proxies are still going to cost you something, and for a few dollars more per month you can get a more comprehensive encryption and privacy suite though the VPN service. Plus, VPN services tend to have more options. There are proxies all around the world, but each proxy is typically privately owned and not part of a huge network. This is another advantage of using VPN services.
