How to hide your IP address online

1. Types of Proxy Servers

A proxy server is actually a server between your browser and the website you want to visit. When you browse the Internet through a proxy server, the browser does not directly retrieve the webpage from the web server, but first sends a request to the proxy server, and the proxy server retrieves the webpage from the website to be visited, and then sends it to your browser. device. So when you use a proxy server to browse, what the website records is the proxy server address, not your IP address! At present, there are many proxy servers on the Internet, most of which are free. Proxy servers can be divided into the following types:

1. According to the security classification of the requested information

There are three types of proxy servers: super anonymous proxy, common anonymous proxy and transparent proxy.
Among them, super anonymous agents are divided into first-level anonymous agents and second-level anonymous agents. If you use a first-level anonymous proxy to connect to a certain server, the server-side network administrator will not know that you use a proxy, and your IP cannot be found out! Because this proxy server is a real anonymous proxy, it will not change your request
fields (message), so that the server looks like a real client browser is accessing it. At present, there are very few first-level anonymous proxies on the Internet, and such proxy server resources are very precious!

As for the second-level anonymous proxy, its security is not as good as the first-level anonymous proxy. If you use the second-level anonymous proxy to surf the Internet, although the server's network administrator cannot find out your IP, they know that you use a proxy!

Ordinary anonymous proxy includes third-level and fourth-level anonymous proxy. This type of proxy server can also hide your real IP, but it will change your request
fields, so the server will also know that you use a proxy! But this proxy will strip some of your information (like the stealth of a firewall
mode), so that the server cannot detect your operating system version and browser version.
Transparent proxy (five-level anonymous proxy): this kind of proxy will adapt your request
fields (message), and transmit your real IP, so if you use this proxy to surf the Internet, you cannot hide your IP.

2. Classified according to the purpose of the proxy server
Proxy servers can be divided into the following categories:

Http proxy (ports are generally 80, 8080, 3128, 50050, etc.): Mainly proxy browsers to access web pages.
SSL proxy (standard port is 443): HTTP proxy that supports up to 128-bit encryption strength, and can be used as a proxy for accessing encrypted websites.

FTP agent (ports are generally 21, 2121): It acts as an agent for the ftp software on the client computer to access the ftp server.

Telnet agent (generally port 23): Agent for telnet of the communication machine, used for remote control.

POP3 proxy (generally the port is 110): The mail software on the proxy client computer receives mail in pop3 mode.

Socks proxy (standard port is 1080): It is a versatile proxy that supports multiple protocols, including http, ftp requests and other types of requests. It is divided into socks 4 and socks
5 two types, socks 4 only supports the TCP protocol and socks 5 supports the TCP/UDP protocol, and also supports various authentication mechanisms and other protocols.

In addition, there are TUNNEL agents, literature agents, education network agents, Ssso agents, Flat agents, etc. Due to space limitations, we will not introduce them here.

2. How to get a free proxy server?

The most primitive method is to use software to fully search a certain network segment (for example, use ProxyHunter to search). This method is simple but time-consuming.

verification name
Feel free to choose "Characteristic String" for the verification type, and enter a URL of a verification proxy server in the verification address. It is recommended to add the address of a foreign website (such as [url][/url] ), because the verified agent may not be able to leave the country with a domestic URL; fill in the content of the title bar of the verification page in the feature string (ie, Yahoo!, as shown in Figure 1 on the right), and you can click "Get" to view the web page Source file, and then copy a section of content, paste it out;

Next, go back to the "Search Result" window and click "Verify All". If "free" is displayed in the result, it is a free proxy server that can be used.

2. Go to the website to download
If you don't want to search for an agent yourself, you can go to some websites to download it. At present, many websites provide the addresses of free proxies. You can use Baidu and Google to search for proxy or free proxies, and you can find such websites. The following are the websites that publish more proxy servers:

3. Verify available free agents

3. Verify the level of anonymous proxy

The above agent hunters can only verify whether a certain agent can be used, but cannot find out the level of the agent. It is very important to understand the level of the proxy, because the fifth-level anonymous proxy cannot hide your IP, only the first-level to four-level anonymous proxy can hide the IP, and the first-level anonymous proxy is the best, it can not only hide the IP, but also allow The network administrator does not know that you use a proxy!
