What is anonymous surfing? In this article, we’ll take a look at what it means to surf the web anonymously. Why would you want to do that, and how does it work? We'll also discuss whether or not it's truly possible to be anonymous while online.

Does using an internet service provider make me anonymous?
It's important to know that your ISP isn't the only entity logging your activity. All the sites you visit, including their retail partners, are recording data about you as well. This can include personal information like religion and purchasing habits in addition to your IP address (even if you use a VPN). Many ISP also log and store your browsing history on their end.

If the websites you visit don't store this data, they're still able to link your account with your IP address. More importantly, they're still able to link this data back to your legal identity when you file a complaint or answer a government survey. If you think about it, this would be like having a home address on file with the IRS. You'd be better off creating an anonymous email account and using that instead of going through the trouble of setting up an online identity from scratch.

The IP address is assigned based on where you are physically located at the moment that it's generated. It's possible to bypass your ISP to mask your IP address, but if you're actively entering in an IP address for a website you're visiting, there's no way to be anonymous.

There are a couple of ways to use the internet anonymously. The first is by using a proxy service or an anonymous proxy. A proxy allows you to hide your identity and your location from the websites that you visit. They also allow you to access certain sites that aren't normally available in your country - for instance, websites like Hulu that aren't available outside of the United States.

There are multiple ways to access a proxy, but the easiest and most popular is by using a browser extension. An extension allows you to see which proxy you're connected to, and select from multiple secure options. You'll also be able to choose the IP address that your requests are routed through. You can find an extension for your browser by doing a quick search on Google or through a site like addonsforchrome.com/

Because proxies are technically in the business of hiding your identity from other internet resources, they don't always guarantee complete anonymity. They have their own logging requirements that might include collecting IP addresses or tracking customer activity. However, services that take your privacy seriously are not only transparent about their security practices, they also have additional features like secure access to restricted content (like Hulu) and the option to pay for a private proxy.

This feature is called "WebRTC leak prevention." It's built into browsers like Google Chrome and Safari. And chances are, you've never heard of it before…

It's very easy for websites to use WebRTC to track your connection. In fact, the average website has this enabled by default . It allows them to see when you're streaming from their website, and can also see who you are and what computer you're using.

Conclusion: WebRTC is a security risk and can identify you.

If you want to go to a site that uses WebRTC, you're best off turning it off in your browser. There are multiple ways to do this, but we recommend going into Options on Google Chrome or Preferences on Safari and disabling the option of using Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC). You might have to restart your browser for the changes to take effect.

Why is my IP address traced? Because of geo-location, identifying your location is actually very easy. Your IP address can be mapped back to an exact location which can then be connected with other data collected about you from publicly available sources like Facebook profiles.
