Again at the last minute for my comment but... First I can't even open the program. Second, there is no full version without the registration number. Third, there is no registration. I guess I will have to disinstall.

A little late on the response but be aware that this program uses TRANSPARENT proxies meaning that the site/user can still see what your ip address is. I tested it out and it worked fine. I went over to whatismyipaddress.com and it told me I was behind a proxy and listed the proxy ip address. But then it told me my real ip address with those same results. So, if you're really serious about your privacy, you should use non-transparent proxies. The think that stinks about that is they are a pain to seek out for free lists. And when you do find lists, many times most of the links are dead.
I was really excited to see this app and the fact that it gave you a free list of tested proxies, however, the proxies they use don't guarantee anonymity. Check it out yourself by testing at www.whatismyipaddress.com and you'll see what I mean. Hope this helps someone!

this software does not work for me. It doesnt seem to get activated for me. Oh well i have been using Invible Ip Map. Its a great software which has 100s of proxies each which work. It cost about $40 for 1 year. A bit costly but it works great.

someone mentioned above that their trying to work out what software as such does. well i enetred a competition where you post videos and the higest number of votes win. Each proxy is allowed one vote so i chage proxies and vote on my own video. I know its cheating but thats what the software is made for

#4 #69 - what this does is change your IP (internet protocol) address by running your internet connection through a computer called a proxy server. Read "proxy" as "alias" for you, so that now your internet traffic is using an IP address assigned to the proxy server. That way when someone, ie a website back traces the IP address you are using it is no longer your own.

Why do this? To protect your personal privacy so that "bad guys" collect less information about you (such as what websites you visit). The more a bad guy knows about you, the more trouble he can cause for you.

Another reason to use an anonymizer, say you don't live in the USA but want to watch US network TV shows. Well, after taking several minutes of your time they say "sorry, your IP address is not in the USA so you can't watch this show". But if you use a proxy that has an IP address located in the USA, and everything else co-operates then you are in luck and get to watch the show(don't tell anyone I told you this ;) )

#7 when a site gets "too nosey" (by your own definition) and they don't need the info for valid (again, your own definition) reasons, such as completing a credit card transaction and then delivering it to you, you do have an option. For example, you want to attend an online webinar or download a document and they ask you for all your personal info (name address company, company info etc). Well, as far as I'm concerned they don't NEED it, so I take the easy way out. I LIE! Fill in the mandatory fields with junk info that passes the validation but is not related to you. Using an anonymizer is just another way of doing this, hiding behind "junk" info.

I could not enable the ports, so I tried as you said, and it worked to enable the port when the program was launched from the end of the installer. However, after closing it and re-opening it, ports would not enable as usual.

Yes I have to agree Tor (Tor network and Vidalia) is the only good alternative out there. I have been using it for many months now and whilst it is slow on firefox, it at least makes surfing more secure. Also Tor is not compatible with Windows. The only other alternative would be iprivacytools.com which you have to pay for.
But this product is pretty bad because it has no user instructions at all, if I had paid for this I would have been most peeved.

#47 Let me educate you for just a moment. Some sites can locate your e-mail through your IP address. If I can do it (And I do it daily)I'm sure they can. The amount of junk or traces you have from visiting various sites can not only create pop-ups, but as I mentioned before can add to the amount of spam you get by one site sharing its information with other trackers in your junk files. I would grant you the understanding of my knowledge base and the number of certificates I hold as well as some of the government agencies I solve computer problems for but why bother. I'm here to try and help others, not puff up my feathers by making false statements in order to impress my self.

I may be misunderstanding what this software is for...

I've used HotSpot Shield - free from www.AnchorFree.com
and, as soon as I log into HSS, and go to www.whatismyip.com,
it shows a completely different IP than my correct one.

With Proxy Voyager, I (with the help of Luis Perez #13 - Thank You)
finally figured out how to set it up. Checked with
www.whatismyip.com and it still showed my "real" IP
address. I made sure that I checked the servers to find a "live" one.

It would not restart in Vista 64. Seemed to run fine
in Vista 32.

I do not have to do any of that with HSS - and, each
time I log on with HSS, it gives a new IP.

I think that it's really important to secure your
privacy on the internet.

Thank you GAOTD for the software and, I think that I'd
have to give it a thumbs down. Karen

FWIW...
Hiding your IP address is very often just a matter of privacy -- someone doing something illegal might just as well use however many remote controlled PCs they've previously taken over with their bots, or get on-line through a network they got access to... often it's just a matter of driving around a biz park with a laptop & a good wi-fi antennae. That said, TOR was developed to help disguise identities in places where freedom of speech doesn't exist. As many FAQs will tell you, spoofing or faking your IP won't do the average person any good what-so-ever -- if the site you're visiting doesn't *know* where you are, it can't send you *any* data, web pages etc.

Now when you connect to a site using SSL or whatever security methods (for example signing in to a merchant to buy something), that secure connection tries to prevents anyone from capturing your traffic & getting your credit card number etc. Without those extra security measures anything you send or receive is fair game while it's in transit... most people aren't paranoid enough to worry about it -- it's the same thing basically as using a wireless or cell phone, or wireless network access as it's normally configured. Most people play the odds -- chances are very good no one will single you out... no one will pick you at random out of billions to monitor. That's not to say you should email your bank info to anyone -- use common sense.

Maybe this will help?...

The reason to use a proxy is to channel your current in & out bound traffic through another server. Generally for the home user it will slow things down, because you still go through whatever servers associated with your ISP, then make a detour through the proxy. Pretty much the sole benefit is that it hides your IP address, which is the key to track down where a PC connected to the Internet, for example your home. ISPs maintain logs of who uses what IP, & in the US, often disclose whatever info when presented with the proper legal docs. Of course in order to protect your identity by using a proxy, you need to use a proxy that will not divulge your IP either -- otherwise it just means an extra step someone has to take to track you down. TOR has the advantage of running your traffic through more than one anonymous proxy, but if one proxy server slows you down, several in a row can really have drastic effects.

The easiest way to use TOR is to download & fire up one of the integrated packages with a portable version of FireFox or Opera & TOR already setup including added components you'll use to, well, use TOR. One of the easiest ways to use a single proxy may be to use Proxy Voyager -- that certainly seems the developers' aim anyway. For the average person just finding a free proxy server might be a challenge -- if the list at the developer's site is maintained well, that would be a definite plus. That said, many proxies have a web page where you simply enter your destination url & click GO -- there's no configuring anything.

#28, GPass doesn't work any more from the UK. Seems that it was only ever meant for the likes of the Chinese population and people living under other oppressive regimes and their servers couldn't cope with "outsiders". I originally found it useful for listening to a USA radio station that had banned non-USA IP addresses for copyright reasons but I have found another way.

I, too, reached the point of trying to enable a 'live' port - without any luck. I did, however, get FoxyProxy and tested a proxy server on the list (which did work).

Criteria for success: let www.privacy.net analyze my connection and checked out what it believed to be my location. If it was right than the program is NOT working.

Hi all!!

Unfortunately for people like me who are forced to surf the web with a bloody 56k DIAL UP connection SOFTWARE like this GAOTD or TOR are useless or even worse counterproductive because they turn their web connection into an ORDEAL...LOL!!

For this reason a good FREE ALTERNATIVE of this GAOTD, allowing you to remain anonymous on the WEB without slowing down too much your web browsing, could be a pretty unknown tool called "TOONEL".

Why??

Because it exploits a tunneling technique combined with data compression, running compressed data frames from the client to the tunnel server which are then forwarded to the target host, allowing you to reduce the size of resources that are transferred between a tunnel server and client, with the consequence that users can enjoy a more efficient use of their BANDWIDTH keeping anonymous at the same time.

This is GOOD if you are paying a FEE based on the amount of data you transfer and/or have monthly download limit (for instance in Italy this applies to a bloody expensive UMTS connection....LOL!!).

Please note that all solutions of this tool are 100% Java based and therefore this service can be used on any platform with an installed Java Runtime Environment, including mobile phones.

http://toonel.net/



Another good FREE alternative to this GAOTD and TOR, besides the FIREFOX ADD-ON "FOXY PROXY", is also JAP, a FREE ONLINE SERVICE that makes it possible to surf the internet anonymously and unobservably.

How does it work??

Well instead of connecting directly to a webserver, with JAP users get access to the web with an ENCRYPTED CONNECTION through several intermediaries, so-called MIXES, that are generally provided by independent institutions which officially declare that they do not keep connection log files or exchange such data with other mix providers.

The JAP SERVICE shows the identity and number of organisations in each MIX CASCADE in detail, and then verifies this information by cryptographic means,so the users are able to selectively choose trustable MIX CASCADES.


Finally, as FUBAR rightly said above, using PROXIES such as this one offered today in no way guarantees anonymity or security, so if you are planning to use it in order to download files illegally from P2P circuits BE AWARE, as this kind of programs are pretty USELESS because everything you download there is recorded by your ISP, since your IP address is fixed by trackers and sent to all peers even if you use a PROXY SERVER.

So SW like PROXY VOYAGER doesn't help you keep anonymous on the web because, as far as I'm aware, any PROXY SERVER is able to encrypt your traffic making it impossible for you to avoid being monitored by your ISP while downloading files on TORRENT, RAPIDSHARE or EMULE.

Of course there is a way to bypass this problem without using PROXIES but I have no intention to tell you here how to do that because I think it's not legal to do so and anyway I don't want to be banned by BUBBY...LOL!!

Personally I know a couple of STUNNING FREE ONLINE TOOLS (one of them even is even "portable" and does not require any installation...LOL!!), which I cannot mention here for the same obvious reasons mentioned above, that, unlike PROXIES like this GAOTD, can bypass all WEB FILTERS (for instance those set up to make TV SERIES available online only at national level...LOL!!) leaving no trace in your browser, as all data is encrypted on a SSL channel, making it impossible for anyone to identify your business or data in transit from your computer to the network, not to mention that all the cookies, the history of navigation and temporary files are automatically deleted.

So GREAT and USEFUL TOOLS to use, especially in those rogue countries where access to certain websites is not allowed because of CENSORSHIP (and of course programs such as PROXY VOYAGER can do nothing or little for that, can't they FUBAR?? LOL!!).



Now, having said that, if PROGRAMS such as this GAOTD (or TOR) make your internet connection much slower than normal without guaranteeing anonymity or security whatsoever (for instance at work...LOL!!), what the heck is this GAOTD for?


Does anybody (FUBAR for instance) know it??



Cheers from Italy!!!

Nice Program!
I'm little security fanatic - this is perfekt today ^^

I used Tor:
http://www.pcfreunde.de/download/d15001/tor/43638-OaLJDTkPGE/
Then Tor combined with Vadalia:
http://www.pcfreunde.de/download/d16421/tor-privoxy-vidalia-paket/43638-exhfiYEOkp/

But I think the Software today is better.
Its even faster.
I testet my anonymity with several securitysites, none of them detected that I am using a proxy an im from china eccept sweden ^^

Anyways, the best free alternative would be the "FreedomStick":
http://www.pcfreunde.de/download/d16667/freedomstick-eviltux-edition/43638-sgEpQObYnc/
This combines all provacy tools you can imagine, even proxy software.
Perfekt for people like me ^^

This software is a good idea for business men and women who are on the go , and their favorite sites might be blocked by the hotels filter. For example, Motel 6 had blocked Yahoo, Craigslist, and a few other sites, and this software automatically unblocks them. Yahoo may think you are in a different country, but you don't have to store your data on its international servers.

As to “help from their website", it seems we’re seeing today a one-man-show, featuring, scripted and directed (by) Mark Schultz.

What a pleasant surprise to see a representative of the TOR project post here. You are very welcome!

I live in a country meanwhile well-known for its security overkill where you can see so many TOR servers flashing on the map (inside the UI) that there can be no doubt of the assumption to be true quite a lot of these TOR nodes are being run by the authorities respectively the intelligence services themselves(!) to undermine anonymity.

Some people have already asked (not on this website, of course) whether it might be possible to exclude (all) the TOR nodes by country instead of having to exclude them one by one which is really tedious and furthermore needs to be refreshed permanently if new exit nodes are joining. So, I would like to grasp the opportunity and ask you personally: Doesn’t TOR still provide any possibility to effectively exclude all the TOR nodes of a specific country? This might be an important issue to numerous people using TOR. Thanks a lot for your answer.

> These types of programs will only stop “Spam” if you’re sure to never use the same proxy twice.

To hide your IP or not to hide your IP doesn't has anything to do with spam.

> Not cleaning out your “Temp’, Temporary Internet” and “History” files will add to the number of “Spam” you can get

That's also a totally false information.

For those of you who had trouble running this program:

1) This is NOT a proxy server itself according to its help file: "Application was designed to quickly switch between different proxy servers. "

2) So you will either need to download a list of proxy servers. Can do this from within the program and from the company's site. Then select them all and run test. Choose any of the those "alive" to be used as "current server"
3) Setup your network proxy to use this application: IE->Tools->LAN settings... (as usual)

Hope this helped.

Couldn't make it work. XP sp3
Even with the activate .exe program all I could get was the trial version.
Tried re-booting, no luck.
Would not activate on any port.
Did download proxy list.
Looked like it was trying to apply it, but no go.
Would not check any more than one proxy at a time. (trail mode)
Help file not active.
Nice idea but needs a little work.

For the most part, anonymous surfing is too slow to be practical for routine use (and that includes -- at least in my experience -- Tor). There are some proxies, however, that are better than others (though still not good enough to install this GAOTD offering.) For 1-shot use it's hard to beat the sites listed at thefreesite.com (first listing = Anonymous Freebies).

Seems to do correctly what it advertises (proxy application), and nothing more.

Comparison between Proxy Voyager and TOR

-Reliability

TOR: Proxy nodes implemented by end-users, so it is harder to block the ever changing IP addresses.
Proxy Voyager: Unknown, but no "node" option available, so chances are that either it uses the TOR list (highly unlikely), or the company pays for people to host nodes. If so, then extremely possible for network administrators to identify and block IP addresses.

- Accessibility

TOR: TOR cleverly chooses faster nodes among the list, while the TOR network regularly ensures that the proxy nodes are still connected, so nodes which disconnect are removed from the list ASAP.
Proxy Voyager: Unknown about methods used, but out of 118 servers tested using built-in testing function, Alive: 33, Dead: 85.

- Anonymity

TOR: TOR routes traffic through 3 nodes.
Proxy Voyager: Unknown, but probably only 1 node.

- Reputation

TOR: Initial release: September 20, 2003
Proxy Voyager: Initial release: March 20, 2009 (only about a week ago)

- THE ULTIMATUM: Normal price

TOR: Free and with source code
Proxy Voyager: $29 (!)

Verdict: In an attempt to make sure this comment is not deleted by Bobby for being rude and giving unflattering comments, I shall leave this blank.

Try GRC Shields up. Just don't put all your cards in one basket. It's just a simple test & not the guidelines for real safety on line. It's here:
https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

Test results should look kind of like this:
Your system has achieved a perfect "TruStealth" rating. Not a single packet — solicited or otherwise — was received from your system as a result of our security probing tests. Your system ignored and refused to reply to repeated Pings (ICMP Echo Requests). From the standpoint of the passing probes of any hacker, this machine does not exist on the Internet. Some questionable personal security systems expose their users by attempting to "counter-probe the prober", thus revealing themselves. But your system wisely remained silent in every way. Very nice.

If & when you can attain a good score there & when you get yourselves a good history cleaner & start using it regularly, you should be safe on line. I'm passing today because I've never felt the need to use such an application. But, as others have mentioned, should I choose to do so, I'd use one of the many free alternatives that I see here today in other comments.
Even though this offer is free here today, theres true freeware thats better in this class of software. But as usual, thanks for this offer. Maybe tomorrow!

I agree with Phil, #29. Get history cleaner & start using it every time you close your browser! I've been doing it for years & never ever keep cookies or cache from my browsing history.
As to this offer, well I pass! If I should choose to use such an application, I'd pick & choose from the many free alternatives that outshine this program in every way.
This is one of those times when free (not free for a day) is better. Protecting your privacy on line is one of the first things you should learn how to do when you get your first computer.

After install-uninstall-install-restart: the program started working. Even the help file (!) which otherwise can be found in the installed folder C:\Program Files (Or Program)\Proxy Voyager. 36 live servers were found. While trying to setup ports to programs Proxy Voyager disappeared and cold not be started. Again uninstall-install restart windows - it worked again but the same problem were soon back. This time UNINSTALL. Interesting to hear if anyone really managed to make work. Did it hide your IP? There are many places to test this on the web. For example http://www.ip-adress.com/

I am just getting ready to install, but first I'm going to visit a site called:

http://www.browserspy.dk

This site can gather all kinds of information about your browser and operating system.

I'd suggest people go there and see what information is gathered.

There also is a site called Shield's up which checks your browser for vulneratives. the site is located here:

This program works great when it works. What I mean by that is all to often the anonymous proxy servers are often slow and busy (but once they work it is anonymous). Just be prepared for web browsing to be slow. Just an fyi, you can set up your own web browser to use one of the anonymous proxy servers without this program. The program does make it easier, but not absolutely needed.
