    Can someone tell me how to effectively hide my ip address? Is there a particular service or app you would recommend?

    Many thanks.

    *** in other disturbing news .. here in New York City .. our state just passed the law last night expanding the government DNA bank for criminals. So it will now include low level crimes ... which means .. if you do something stupid like not pay your train fare .. or get into a fist fight in a bar. You will now have your blood taken and your DNA will be stored in a DNA bank. I'm all for stopping crime.. but with such a corrupt system we have in place a move like this is just so bad. What a crazy year so far. It's turning into one of those bad science fiction movies about the future.

    hiding ip will you never get somethingcos they will look into your data stream and see if they found something.
    when you download stuff from a filehoster like RS and its not password protected or is a blank mp3 files they will found out.
    they tried something like with AOL back in 2006 - it was well working when you downloaded MP3 and they found it out.
    im not sure how much they improved with that. im still do not get it why they really wanna stop ppl from downloading illegal stuff - you do nobody harm. only uploaders do.
    fking morons.
    thats just my view.

    Yeah it's a pretty stupid logic...but one that's repeated over and over again it seems.

    Thanks for the info.

    So I guess there's really no way to stay hidden from my ISP? (Time Warner)

    There is no way to hide your online activities from your ISP. As you have to use their gateway to access the web and they can see and trace all activity

    Not true at all. Look up Transport Layer Security (TLS)/SSL and Vpn, both provide secure connections, all your isp see's is an encrypted datastream.

    basically you would have to use something like tor or i2p and use a vpn through it along with something to obfuscate your traffic.
    its not ridiculously difficult, just a headache to have to resort to such measures.

    i figured this would happen when they replaced those root dns servers on the 8th
    they essentially took over the internet for lack of better words.
    the only downfall is that if they start shutting down services on an ISP level, there wont be anything you can do to counteract it.

    Hi mates,

    I don't know if this is an stupid question, but i was wandering ...
    Would not be possible to contract an internet connection with an ISP outside the US and still use this connection in the US ?.
    Sure it's a nonsense question and perhaps technically impossible, but ... if you don't mind i would like to know why should this not be possible (if it is not) ?

    Kind Regards! :mates:
