My buddy and I had been discussing how you'd be able to safely browse the internet from an offshore place another day. Yes alright, I admit it is a fairly eccentric and geeky conversation but it emanated from something which we dislike and that is censorship. You visit Governments around the globe are doing just two things about the net -
- Tracking and insisting our Internet browsing, emails are logged
- Assessing and limiting the Areas of the internet that we can see
It is no joke and also to somebody who has really annoyed when his articles are moderated at a forum you are able to envision how worked up I get about this kind of stuff. The conversation about safe international internet surfing was specifically associated with my discovery that if you surfed the net from Turkey - a liberal secular state there were really web sites you couldn't see because of faith.
Anyway, I probably have to clarify the technical principles behind those blocks - it is all to do with your IP address. It's pretty much your identity online and can be tracked back to your own computer through your ISP. In reality your demanding location could be deduced automatically from the IP address and it's the way the UK citizen could be blocked by using the Pandora Radio website and how Americans have been blocked by using European Online Casinos. Try either and you are going to become blocked if you are in the wrong location.
So how do I hide my place?
There's a very simple means to appear into a website which you're really surfing from another place and that is to use an anonymous list of web proxy sites. This does is link your internet requests via another place - you will seem to the internet site in order to be browsing from the nation of the proxy host. Even better your actual IP address won't be logged online site you see.
So that is the way I could surf safely?
Regrettably not - proxy servers conceal your identity in the web server that you see but what else is clearly observable, your own ISP will log each web page that gets sent to your personal computer and the logs will include all of your background for ages.
To browse securely you want to do more - you also want a quick, independently owned proxy server that's configured to be completely anonymous, you will need the facility to automatically switch to alternative countries proxies if desired and most of you need your whole traffic to be encrypted using a military degree cipher. This means that your connection cannot be traced back from the target web server along with the communication is totally shielded by hackers, nosey authorities and identity thieves.
