Hide IP Platinum

  iqs 15:03 28 Jul 2007

Hello All,

After many months of possible attacks against my PC,so my Firewall stated,I have just purchased Hide IP Platinium.

With the software running am I now completely invisable on the web?.Can I still be traced/located/identified or attcked?.

According to the faqs supplied the answer is yes.But you never know.Your help is appreciated.Many thanks :-)

You need to verify what constitutes an `attack` according to your firewall, if it relates to IP scans these are routinely done by your ISP for example. From what I've heard HideIP isn't much cop.
Better to spend a few quid on a router and let its hardware firewall deal with things.

You can check your own PC's invisibility or otherwise by going to click here and run the Shields Up full test, does not take long.

brundle,Technotiger and SANTOS7 for all your comments.

I have run the Shields Up test,no vulnerabilities were detected.Good so far.It reassures me that my Firewall is up to the job.

But will Hide IP stop others from identifying me,my IP,what web sites I view etc?.Cheers all

If Shields Up says you invisible, then you are!

Sorry but you can not be invisible on the web otherwise you would not be able to view any web pages.

You send your request to say, PCA, for their webpage to be uploaded to your computer, along with that request is your IP address so that the pages can be routed back your computer.
