How to Spoof Your IP

Your IP address acts like your computer's online virtual address while you surf the Web. Software that views IP addresses (such as that used by some message boards) will display yours to know who you are. If you are tired of people tracking you via your IP address, one option is to get a "spoof" (fake) IP address.

Sometimes hackers can use your IP address to track you and find where you live.

Step

Launch your favorite Web browser.

Step

Search for a proxy service that you'd like to use to spoof your IP address (see "Resources" for a few sample proxy services).

Step

Access the proxy site you want to use to spoof your IP address.

Step

Enter in your destination website in the box provided on the proxy site.

Step

Hit "Enter," and the proxy will take you to the site you entered, all the while spoofing your IP address to anyone who tries to view it.
