    I've only heard good things from them as a lot of people seem to be using their http://hidemyass.com/vpn/software/ with as it's pretty user-friendly and has lots of features.

    Anyone else having a good experience with them? I'm considering buying their Pro VPN package.

    All input is appreciated.

    I had their VPN for about a month but never really used it. It's pretty good, simple to use and definitely fast -- but I haven't tried other VPN providers to be able to compare the speed. For the prices, it's definitely a good bargain; I'm about to renew my subscription in a few days.

    I use them, the speed is amazing and they offer a huge amount of proxies to use, however almost all their proxies have been used to spam everything possible, take the IP first and look it up before doing anything with it though. You may have to sort through a few dozen before you find one that hasn't been reported as spam.

    I use the Pro VPN service and it's damnnnn good. I've worked with several proxies before, but nothing beats the experience of working on the pro VPN. Buy it without a second thought!

    Works great the daily list is usually 95% blown out, but the good 5% works.

    Can you scrape directly in scrapebox w/o using proxies if you have HMA running?
    I tried to set it change my ip every 30 seconds...but I found it took about 30 seconds just to change my ip, and during that time, my original IP was the one I was browsing with.

    Why would anyone still use their service, after what they did with their free proxys?

    I like it so far, except I'm getting connection issues. And if I can't scrape then why else would I need to hide my ip?

    Don't use HideMyAss if you're expecting any level of anonymity. I've heard horror stories about them turning their logs over to third parties who requested them (law enforcement, etc.) If you need them just for software proxy purposes, that's fine. But don't do anything that you wouldn't normally do with your own IP address.

    One such news story:
    zdnet[dot]co[dot]uk/blogs/security-bulletin-10000166/hide-my-ass-throws-light-on-lulzsec-logs-10024437/

    And something from here at BHW:
