Several weeks ago, Privacy-Gateway.com has released a new and free hide IP tool called
NotMyIP. I have already tested it and written down my conclusions. Privacy-Gateway also promotes a commercial hide IP tool, Anonymity Gateway. Let’s take a tour and see what are differences between NotMyIP (free) and Anonymity Gateway (commercial).
First of all, both applications are effective tools for hiding your IP address. The functioning principle is the same: they use proxies to hide your real IP address. Your traffic is driven by these proxies and you are not identified correctly by the sites you visit. It’s that simple!
NotMyIP vs Anonymity Gateway
Let’s see how several features that may help you compare NotMyIP and Anonymity Gateway:
|Application Type||Freeware||Shareware – $33/year|
|Includes Premium Proxies||Yes||Yes|
|You can add your own proxy||No||Yes|
|Auto browser configuration||Yes||Yes|
|Works with Internet Explorer||Yes||Yes|
|Works with Firefox||Yes||Yes|
|Works with Opera||Yes||Yes|
|Works with Chrome||Yes||Yes|
|Blocks Invasive Code||No||Yes|
|Works on Vista||Yes||Yes|
Both solutions are good for hiding your IP address. If you want to hide behind a US IP address, NotMyIP will perform just fine. If you need other IP addresses from UK, Canada, France, Netherlands, etc. you may consider Anonymity Gateway.
