How to surf anonymously or protect your online identity using CyberGhost VPN

how to hide your identity while browsing

If you asked someone how you could hide your identity on the Internet, chances are you would be taken for a fraudster. A few years ago, I would have agreed with such people, but not in these dark days of the Internet. The internet is filled with so many Bobbie traps that protecting your identity is one thing you should not joke with…unless you think its cool to get hacked or cyber-robbed.

In the guide at https://journal.hovatek.com/how-to-change-proxy-settings-in-google-chrome-mozilla-firefox-internet-explorer-and-opera/ , we discussed some frequently asked questions about proxies. In this guide, we will be discussing another way to anonimize your surfing using CyberGhost VPN.

What is a VPN?

A VPN or Virtual Private Network is a method used to add security and privacy to private and public networks, like WiFi Hotspots and the Internet. VPNs are most often used by corporations to protect sensitive data.

      At the bottom left corner, you can select the country of your choice. You would have to select USA so you don’t get assigned to a random proxy server. To verify its working, use any free online IP / location checking website
