    Hi,

    I was just wondering how I can test if a VPN / proxy service is really protecting my IP to be revealed?

    I know for sure that TOR browser is working but I can't always use it, so I'm looking for alternatives and found this one https://proxy-nl.hide.me it works for the websites in question but I don't know if my IP is somehoe shown or can be traced?

    It really depends on what you plan on doing with your VPN, if you're into the fraud industry I would not suggest a VPN, then you'll have to get on a completly other level. It all comes down to how anonymous you want to be, it it hard to redirect you to something since I don't know the details.

    When using an anonymity or privacy service, it is extremely important that all traffic originating from your computer is routed through the anonymity network. If any traffic leaks outside of the secure connection to the network, any adversary monitoring your traffic will be able to log your activity. To prevent that you should make sure that your ISP isn't leaking your IP. To check that go to dnslеаk.соm оr dnslеаktеst.соm you can test if your IP isn't leaking. While on VPN testing this you shouldn't see your or yours ISP IP number.

    Why wouldn't a VPN be good for the fraud industry? I was actually just looking at buying a VPN subscription at HideMyAss. I'd like to be pretty damn anonymous and figured that would be enough, lol. Building a website with 'authorized' resell software. Any tips? (It wouldn't let me PM you because I just joined)

    Thanks for all the input, great information actually. What I was looking for is the same level of anonymity as the TOR Browser project.. it has been working great for me, however, SUCURI is blocking all IP's from them it seems :)
