ip-shield can help you protect your privacy by allowing you to browse the web anonymously. It works by creating a virtual private network to hide your real IP and other information, such as the name of your web browser or the computer. Using this application, you can also skip the navigation rules established at work or school.
The application has a very intuitive interface that allows you to configure the initial settings, such as your account name and password. Besides, you can pick one of the available cities and regions. Then, all is required is to press the corresponding button. While the connection is active, you will receive information about its status, such as IP address and amounts of downloaded or uploaded data.
In general, ip-shield can effectively simulate your navigating the Internet from another IP without significantly affecting your connection speed. It is a pity that, although it supports setting a proxy server, it does not allow entering authenticating parameters. Therefore, if you are navigating the Internet via a proxy that requires authentication, this program may become completely useless.
- It is easy to use
- It does not affect connection speed significantly
- It allows you to select a region
- It does not allow entering your username and password when you are navigating through a proxy that requires authentication
