The word as we know it is geographical million of miles long in latitude and longitude. There is only one thing that has brought this millions of miles to a minute which is known as the internet, started as what is known as ARPANET, was a top secret way of distributing information throughout the different bases of army in the US army is now a pool of internet that helps in gaining and increasing the knowledge of others. Everything in this world has become so dependent on the internet that each service is provided through the combination of computer (common operated machine particularly used for technical, educational, and research purposes) and internet. Ranging from commerce to health everything can be and is linked to computers and internet.
With the increase in the dependency on computer there is also an increase in the rate of crime that can be made on computer which is known as hacking. Hacking generally can be defined as the method of robbery through computers by people who would like to gain something through unfair means, or leak a piece of information that one is getting paid for. There are a variety of hackers that are available on the internet today like the grey hacker, black hackers. Grey hackers are the hacker which work according to the requirement by the employer and secondly the black hacker are the people which work without releasing any of their personnel information.
There are many ways that we can utilize many software to gain security from the above mentioned threats. One way is to increase the firewall of the computer that you utilize to gain access to the internet, the other method is to only open those parts of the internet through which no personnel information could be gained by the hackers known as the secure web for example the services made available by Google. Another method to secure your information is through masking one’s system IP. IP is a 32 or 64 bit code that allows you to be unidentified on the internet and it can be successfully altered to hide your actual presence from the internet so that you can feel a bit secure.
One of the software that allow the masking of the your geo location and data is known as Hide My IP. The software is freely available on the official website which allows you to download anything from internet with confidence. Once the installer has been downloaded there is no need of the internet during the installation of the software, it should also be understood that the installation is a very simple installation which can be done by any amateur that has just the basic knowledge of the internet and computers. After the installation if you work with the default setting you get a icon to access the software through desktop icons. Opening it, opens a very simple design that is easily understandable.
