How to block users that change their IP address or use a proxy?


Sandra Pique


Now, let’s take a look at three tools you can use to hide your IP address. Each offers its own blend of privacy, security, and practicality.

  • Use a VPN

  • Use Tor

  • Use a proxy

How does a proxy hide your IP address?

  • Some proxy servers can mask your IP address with a fake one. You’ll appear as though you’re based in the same country as your proxy server. If you’re using a proxy to hide your IP, be aware that not all proxies offer equal protection.

  • Transparent proxies conceal neither your IP address nor your use of a proxy.

  • Anonymous proxies hide your IP address but not your use of a proxy.

  • High anonymity (or elite) proxies hide both your IP address as well as your use of a proxy.

In the meantime, you can start hiding your IP address right now with Roxlabs proxy.
