Hi,
Hypothetical question- If i wanted to make a donation to Wikileaks (controversial, i know) but didn't want to help, which IP Hiding program would anyonr recommend please?

Use a private proxy server

I believe that even through a proxy server you can, eventually, be found if the Law is involved.
If you want to donate to Wikileaks then just do so.

I see. Dont ip hiding programs work then?

  rdave13 23:37 25 Feb 2011

Up to a point but the proxy servers will have your info otherwise they won't work and you will not get the info required. Remember they only 'hide' you but you are still leaving a trail. If the proxy server host is required, by law, in this country anyway, to divulge information, through a court order, then they must do that. Depends which Country the servers are, I suppose, and where laws are different.

This is one of the most widely used click here

It can cause some degradation in browser performance.

I use Hide IP Easy - click here Note though as bremner says, it slows the browser down.

Why not use some one elses computer? Such as the local library - usually free, remember to delete browsing history before you log off

I use the same as Proclaimer,and its quite effective,i only use it to watch US TV programs that i wouldn't usually be able to see because of where i am,it does slow you down,but it not that bad if you have a good connection.One thing i would say is when you use these type of programs they do open a lot of ports on the pc some of witch can leave you open to attacks from nasties so use with care.
