Every time a new hide IP tool reaches the market, I’m happy to announce it and write about it. This time is about a special tool called HideIPVPN, a VPN service that also offers free accounts! Learn how to get HideIPVPN free.
HideIPVPN hides your IP address (using VPN technology) and exposes UK or US IP addresses instead of your real one. This allows you to unblock a lost of restricted sites and protect your online privacy.
HideIpVPN main features:
- No logs are kept.
- It provides high-speed internet connection
- Encrypts and compresses all traffic including Email, IRC, FTP, DNS, VOIP, instant messengers.
- Bypasses your ISP’s traffic shaping.
- Hides your tracks from internet monitoring or web filtering apps like Websense, Barracuda, etc.

- Works on Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac, Linux, etc.
- Easy to install and use.
Why is HideIPVPN special?
- It is, as far as I know, the only free VPN service that offers both UK and UK IPs
- Unblocks Hulu (I just checked) and other restricted US sites
- Unblocks BBC iPlayer (also checked) and other restricted UK sites
How to start using HideIPVPN free?
In order to get your IP hidden with HideIPVPN you need to create an account. Go to the free VPN page and access the link to the account creation page.
The setup is very simple as the VPN services use PPTP protocol. To see how to do it for your operating system go to Howto/Setup page.
For those that need more security, HideIpVPN offers a premium service:
- Offers complete privacy and anonymity by using OpenVPN (more secure and stable than PPTP)
- Anonymous US and UK IP addresses!
In order to maintain the quality of their service, the number of both free and premium accounts is limited. So, hurry up, to get your US/UK VPN account!
Super Premium VPN Package
HideIpVPN proposes the Super Premium Package with 20 servers located in United States, United Kingdom, Germany, and the Netherlands, all allowing PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN and Proxy connections. It’s an excellent choice for those interested in different connection options and wants to use servers from a different location.
HideIpVPN P2P/Torrent VPN Package
Another new package is the one that allows P2P/Torrent connections with servers located in the Netherlands. This is for those looking for more anonymity downloading from torrents.
