Those who worry that their surfing habits can be traced as they use the Web should give this program a try. It uses anonymous surfing technology to keep your true IP address hidden, and in that way shield your PC from being tracked. For example, your real IP address may be 66.32.112.217, but no sites will be able to see that--instead they'll see a different one, such as 128.241.105.3.

It's exceptionally easy to use Anonymizer Anonymous Surfing. Just launch it, and you don't need to do anything else--you're now anonymous. In addition to anonymous surfing, it can also protect you from visiting malicious Web sites, and protect you when you use a wireless connection buy turning on SSL encryption. And when you want, you can turn anonymous surfing off.

Note: This download includes the entire Anonymizer Safe Surfing Suite, which consists of Anonymous Surfing, Anti-Spyware, Nyms, and Digital Shredder Lite. You can activate the trial for one or all the included applications. At the end of the trial period, pay for only the parts you wish to keep.
