3 Ways to get a Mexican IP address
1. Use Web Proxies
The simplest and fastest method to browse using Mexican IP address is by using a web proxy. Unfortunately such proxies are usually too slow and unreliable for online streaming. To use such a web proxy simply visit the proxy site, type in the desired URL and press the Go or Submit button. Thus, the site is loaded from the IP of the proxy not from your IP address.
One such a web proxy with Mexican IP address is Teleport. Also, you may Google for “Mexican web proxy”. If you know more feel free to share them in the comments below.
Important! Before starting to use a web proxy please read the following post: Risks of using a proxy site.
2. Manually change your IP using paid or open proxies
An alternative to web proxies are the open or paid proxies. They are more stable and usually faster. But, you may need to pay attention to your privacy. DO NOT enter your credit card details or other sensitive info while browsing using open proxies.
You may find proxies with Mexican IP addresses on Free-Proxy.cz or Samair.ru. After you choose one you need to setup your browser to use that proxy. Take for example 184.108.40.206:8081 and configure your browser to use it when you connect to the internet. [click to continue…]

Double VPN allows you to increase your security while connecting to a VPN. Learn about this VPN approach and its advantages.
What is Double VPN?
Double VPN is a technology allowing you to browse securely and anonymously by connecting to a chain of servers inter-connected via VPN-tunnel. When the user is connected a Double VPN server the traffic is redirected to a second server, with all the traffic subjected to several encoding steps. Thus, the intermediate server is only used to ensure pass-through traffic but not the connection to external network.
The working principle is rather simple. Firstly, the VPN client/app connects to a VPN server which then routes all traffic to another VPN server from where the destination is reached. The traffic is double encrypted within the two VPN layers before getting to the desired website.
Your computer >> First VPN server >> Second VPN server >> Destination
Advantages and disadvantages of using Double VPN
You may not need using a Double VPN if you simply want to unlock inaccessible services in your country (e.g.: Facebook, Twitter, etc.). But, when it is about high level of anonymity, double VPN can be of great help.
The main advantage of this approach is that the traffic between your device or computer to the desired destination is doubled encrypted. Thus, it is harder to be detected and decoded. Plus, your visible IP address is supplementary protected.
You may already guess the disadvantage: the double encryption slows the connection. However, in some cases, the connection between the VPN servers can be so optimized that compensates the time lost due to encryption/decryption process.
To sum up, double VPN is good for high security, but it is not recommended for unblocking restricted websites. [click to continue…]

ibVPN, one of services that I like and use, has presented their new Windows app. The ibVPN All-In-One VPN v2.0 is not only better than the previous version, but it also represents an important step forward.
My first impression
The new ibVPN Windows app does not follow the latest app design trends as most of the VPN providers do. The app is not over-simplified and it can be used by both the beginners and advanced VPN users. Let’s take a deeper look to the most important features.
Easy connect/disconnect: Automatic VPN Protocol selection & Fastest Server option
The basic function of every VPN app is to connect and disconnect. The ibVPN app does it simply and easily. Open the app and click the Connect button. The default settings are Fastest Server and the Automatic protocol. The Fastest Server option seems to search for the fastest server to connect to. The criteria are not clear, but the search does not take long, which is good. Starting from the second attempt the connection is even faster.
If you want to connect to a certain server, click on the Fastest Server and select the location. You may easily get the servers from a certain location, those that allow P2P traffic or that unblock certain streaming channels.
The Automatic protocol actually takes the protocols one by one and tries to connect to the selected server. As far as I can see the default protocol is L2TP, but it can be easily changed to PPTP, SSTP, IPSec, OpenVPN. [click to continue…]
