3 years later, a lot of people are still relying on IP hiders and proxy servers. But these are not really safe at all. OpenVPN is the way to go, and I’d like to make a suggestion, Express VPN. They respect privacy and protection is their priority.

Do you have a spam issue on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; we have developed some nice procedures and we are
looking to swap methods with others, why not shoot me
an email if interested.

VPNs are the popular IP hiders these days. But they are not all good. It is surprising to read on vpnexpress.net how many of them as privacy tools actually share or even sell user data.

The best way I have found so far is to use a VPN and a different server every time I log in. And also don’t forget to log out. OpenVPN is the best as I found on vpnexpress.net because you are also protected from other dangers like data mining and spying.
