How to conceal my IP address, while online?
I am using beHidden.com. It is not free, but they are very reasonable. They are also offering a free trial. BeHidden.com provides excellent proxies with high speed. HTTP, SOCKS and Ads blocker proxy are available with thousands IP addresses.
Hotspot Shield protects your entire web surfing session; securing your connection at both your home Internet network & Public Internet networks (both wired and wireless). Hotspot Shield protects your identity by ensuring that all web transactions (shopping, filling out forms, downloads) are secured through HTTPS. Hotspot Shield also makes you private online making your identity invisible to third party websites and ISP’s. It's 100% free.
Using it, it really works and all I didn't wanted was to comment on wordpress and intense debate leaving my Ip to unknown people. Thanks!
After researching before downloading and installing I found it is the best of all, great TIP!
You can use the "Tor" network, 'JonDo' or a free VPN service like 'Hamachi', 'Hotspotshield' or 'itshidden' for surfing anonymously. But let me tell you one thing - All these services, being free, are slower than commercial VPN solutions. If you are very much concerned about your privacy, want fast connectivity and are willing to spend a few bucks, go for a commercial VPN/Anonymizing solution. :)
You can hide your IP address using a
- web proxy: http://www.proxy.org
- hide ip address software: http://www.privacy-pro.com
- VPN connection: http://www.ibvpn.com
I second usage of VPN software. They are usually not free but extremely cheap.
Also be careful when using proxies servers you find online. I would strongly recommend you to never access your accounts (email, bank etc) when connecting through a proxy server.
Also, have a read of these two articles that I have wrote for MUO

I guess using a proxy is the easiest way to temporarily hide your IP address, although your surfing experience might suffer a drop in speed, depending on the type and origin of the proxy. There are also many different types of proxies, some provide total anonymity.
