Everybody who goes online is always concerned about their privacy. After all, nobody wants to show their identity online, as you never know who may be keeping track of your online activities and may use it against you. But if you are reading this you don’t need to worry anymore as today we have tested an application which helps protect your online privacy and keep your identity secure.
The application that will do this task is IP Privacy by Privacy Pro. It is a privacy protection app that keeps your identity secure by hiding your real IP address behind highly anonymous fast premium proxies which is regularly updated and without affecting any browsing speed. It also helps prevent your browsing and internet activities over the Internet from being tracked by others websites, advertising agencies or Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

Ease of Use
Using IP Privacy is a piece of cake. The main window consist of two big buttons, “Enable Online Anonymity” and “Enable Privacy”. In this window, under “select a proxy” select anyone from the list of available proxy servers, which are divided into Countries. After selecting a pop-up dialog box will appear, just click on Start and then IP Privacy will check the server. After satisfaction with the result, click on “Enable Online Privacy” to activate online anonymity. You can also “Enable Privacy” for added security. You don’t need any other configuration to your browsers proxy settings. Fire up your favourite browser and start surfing the net in complete anonymity.
Almost all the proxies that we tested were very fast and their was hardly any difference in the browsing speed. We even tested them by downloading a file and got almost the same speed that we get from our ISP.
Privacy Pro provides support to IP Privacy users via Email support and Phone Support. You can also read the online user guide for any technical information about IP Privacy usage from their official website.

It does this very effectively and transparently without effecting your browsing speed. You can get a three-day trial version from their website to test IP Privacy. The retail price is $39.95.
