Is it safe from tracers if I use a proxy?
« on: January 08, 2007, 12:30:55 PM »
hey people,

is it possible for my real IP to be hidden totally from others if i use web proxy such as STunnel. I'm not too sure what it does but when i use it and run browser and check my IP, my IP is changed. Does this mean i am safe from anyone who wants to trace my location?

Thanks in advance

fiz

STunnel is a web proxy. You can use it to surf http://ip.my-proxy.com to determine whether it's anonymous. If the "Your IP" in the page isn't your real IP, then it's anonymous, which means they don't know your real IP.

Actually you can use some free ones instead:

Yes, you are safe from ordinary tracers. But I'm not sure whether it's safe if your tracer is FBI ;)

You are never completely safe (or anonymous) as someone always knows who you are.  And if they have the time, energy and resources you can be found.
I tell it like it is and that's offensive to those professing knowledge they don't have.
