Update: IPHider 4.5 is no longer available. You should check other hide IP tools.
The new version of the well known hide IP tool, IP Hider, is ready for download. As I have already tested the beta, IPHider 4.5 is not a surprise.
IPHider 4.5 main features
The only thing that I noticed different from the beta is the absence of the Canadian proxy. The team told me that they could not offer a reliable proxy for that location so they removed it from the interface.
As I already mentioned for the beta, IP Hider 4.5 comes with an improved user interface and better browser configuration. Here is the complete list of improvements:
- Easier country/proxy selection. Beside the click on map features, the user is now able to choose the country of the chosen IP address by clicking on the corresponding flag.
- More proxies. Netherlands and France IP addresses were added, beside the existing ones: US, UK, Germany and Ireland.
- Auto browser configuration. IP Hider 4.5 works with all browsers. No manual configuration needed.

IPHider changes your IP address by using proxies. This means that it mainly sets your browsers to use their proxies and redirects the Internet traffic to those proxies. The important idea is that such an app does not hides your public IP for all the apps that you the Internet (take for example the torrent apps).
If you are not happy with the proxy approach you may simply use VPN. They provide higher level of privacy and anonymity. Plus they change the IP address for the entire Internet connections. Thus, all the running apps are forced to use the encrypted tunnel provide by the VPN.
You may find below several VPN services that I recommend:
