SafeIP – an easy to use application that allows you to save inkognito while traveling over the WAN.
With the proposed free tool you can couple of clicks on the button to change the ‘home country’ and select a new external IP-address for your computer. In addition, the product includes useful additional tools to block potentially dangerous sites and protection from annoying ads.
Immediately after starting the application SafeIP displays the current external IP-address of the computer and offers users to choose an alternate address that is registered in one of the five countries (USA, UK, Poland, Germany and France). Select a country by a single mouse click, and then a couple of seconds before your eyes will be the new IP-address. By the way, the application can be used not only to preserve anonymity. Thanks SafeIP you can come to the site and view a variety of content that is not available in your region.
Site Explorer SoftwareCrew argue that in most cases, the application works quite well. With SafeIP testers quickly gained the Polish ‘citizenship’ and when you visit sites browser to automatically select the appropriate language and display advertisements in Polish. We should also note that such masking has little negative effect on the speed of loading pages, but in most cases, these delays do not seem critical.
Many modern web-sites are able to track the user not only to IP-address, for this reason, in the ‘Settings’, you can configure other settings for the browser, for example, block the transfer of User-Agent header or deny elements ‘cookies’. In the settings menu you will find other useful options such as ‘blocking ads on web-pages’ and ‘protection from malicious sites.’ However, the proposed built-in protection can not boast of high stability and efficiency. Apparently, when you activate the options described SafeIP tries to modify a file HOSTS, and in most cases, the end of the error message.
Provides a useful tool runs under Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7, and translated into many languages, including Russian. Copy SafeIP 2.0 can be downloaded from the developer – http://www.freesafeip.com.
