Every device connected to the internet is given an IP address to communicate with websites, and other devices. Your IP address can be used to track your activity and reveal your location, so hiding your digital identity is a great way to stay private and secure online.
Masking your IP address with a VPN is the safest and fastest way to protect your privacy online. NordVPN will instantly hide your IP address, secure all of your online activity, and even help protect you against malware – just by switching it on.
You might be wondering why you need to hide your IP address in the first place. Here are the main reasons:
If you want to hide your location from websites and third parties, hiding your IP will do the trick.
Avoid censorship and surveillance. Using a different IP in a heavily censored country will help you enjoy complete internet freedom.
Stay truly private online and avoid bandwidth throttling. If you hide your IP, your ISP can’t track your online activity and throttle your internet speed.
Your online activity, including the websites you visit, should remain private from your ISP, network administrator, and other third parties.
The best way to hide your IP address and mask your internet activity is by using NordVPN to encrypt your connection. For maximum protection, use NordVPN on all of your devices, including your smartphone, laptop, tablet, PC, and even your home router.
