Hi,

I installed the software “Free Hide IP” which is limited to U.S. ip in its free version, which does not bother me particularly.
Once the software activated, I obviously wanted to check my new ip on http://www.whatismyproxy.com/.
My external ip is well hidden, but I note that identification is still possible by the internal ip (revealed through Java).
Is this normal or should I still change something somewhere so that also this identification can’t be done???

Thanks in advance for your answers !Embarassed

Jeanjean,

Don’t worry about your “internal IP” – it is a generic LAN IP that all computers connected to a router have. No websites/servers look for it or record it, and even if the did it wouldn’t matter cause its generic and won’t affect your privacy at all.. “External IP” is the one that you want to hide if you are using a proxy.

BTW Are you sure that “Free IP Hide” is a safe software? As I explained in my review on, some proxy owners may be mining your data instead of protecting it. So you should be sure “Free IP Hide” is trustworthy.

OK . Thanks Ashraf ! I’ve learn something more.

I’ll be careful Rachana.

BTW, this product was last tested in the Softpedia Labs on 20th of April 2010 and comes from here : http://www.free-hideip.com/Embarassed

If it was tested by Softpedia we could assume that the software was safe… but that was a decade ago… Wink

Some of these so-called Hide IP software programs are not trustworthy, in that the user’s IP can ultimately be revealed and identified (anyway) via the host website that the user is visiting.  The most secure way for a user to hide/shield their IP address is via the HotSpot Shield website – check it out yourself below:
