Does that mean the only way to hide your IP is through paying another company?
Like is that the catch here?

There are plenty of free anonymous proxy servers, but they are not as reliable as one that you pay for.

You will have to find your own anon proxies though, as this ain't the place for me to be posting proxy lists.

You cant fake your IP address as any websites you visit need to know where to send the html/images back to (i.e. your IP address).

Proxies are ok for basic surfing, keeping your IP off website statistics etc but anybody they aren't very secure.

If you were wanting to hide from people on ICQ/MSN etc then this is fine but trying to hide your IP from the goverment using a proxy just makes me laugh. If they really wanted to know what your upto they could just contact your ISP and they'd have access to everything.

If you want to do something which you think the government wont like then you'd best use and internet cafe but even that wont protect your for long.

Go to Tools -> Options -> Dialup Settings (or LAN Settings) to add a proxy.

They are ranked by speed and date, so you can easily get an up-to-date one. You should be able to check each one via a link also. When it asks you what port to look at just select one of the dropdowns like 8000 or 8080.

To check that you are using it correctly, try

TheCaptain2k1 is right though. Forget about protecting yourself from government. Mind you, all resources, even government ones are limited. Government doesnt have time to look at each person's activities, so you would only be investigated if you draw attention to yourself, or otherwise randomly.

I only use such proxies if I need to post to a message board that for some dumb reason my IP address is banned from. I don't see the point really, especially if you can just use proxies!
