You love surfing the Internet, but what you don't love is how easy it is for websites to track your identity and browsing behavior. If only you could put on a mask to hide your true self, letting you go anywhere you want on the Internet with wild abandon! But wait, that's exactly what you get with today's discount software promotion, Mask Surf Pro!

Mask Surf Pro lets you surf the Internet completely anonymously, without requiring any complex configurations or steep learning curves. With Mask Surf Pro, you can engage in web browsing, instant messaging, and information sharing like chat rooms and forums without revealing your true identity. No application does a better job of preventing trackbacks and hiding your browsing history than Mask Surf Pro.

Working in a way that is unlike all other anonymizing software, Mask Surf Pro provides the highest level of anonymity and communication security, repeatedly encrypting your data before sending it through multiple network nodes. Along the way, levels of encryption are peeled away to reveal further routing instructions, meaning that the origin, destination, and contents of your messages are never revealed to intermediary nodes!

Bonus features of Mask Surf Pro include the ability to choose an IP of a specific region, letting you visit region-locked websites, online radio stations, and other web services. All of this, combined with the ease of an intuitive interface, makes Mask Surf Pro a clear choice for preserving your identity on the web!

Lupke Brother How does this work together with antivirus tools, like Eset, Malwarebytes, Norton et cetera, et cetera?

Does it work with other programs like Skype, Messenger Tools and i.e. Outlook (2007/2010)?

Does it work with HTTPS and SSL connections?

Can I set the IP address be set to change automatically and how often?

SoftCollector Dear Evgeniy,

Thank you for your offer to sell Mask Surf Pro at a discounted price.

Here are a few questions that I hope you can address:

1. What is you privacy policy? Do you collect any kind information about visited sites, etc. even 'not personally identiable', and who do you provide it to (or are required to provide it to) for advertising purposes, to help the law, etc.?
2. What is the max/min speed achieved by passing my traffic through your IP addresses – in other words: how will my connection suffer?
3. Does the software have any cookie management functionality? If cookies are not controlled 'anonymity' cannot be achieved.

Kind Regards,
SC

Evgeniy Minakov Mask Surf Pro works separately from antivirus and antimalware software. Pro version support most popular browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera) and any program that shares Internet Explorer's proxy settings (Google Chrome, Safari, etc.).

It redirects your Internet traffic to the Tor anonymous network through SOCKS proxy connection. So if you set your browser anonymized all it traffic will be sent to anonymous network until you quit the program or unset anonymity.

IP address can be changed at any time for technical needs. So do not rely on specific false IP.

Evgeniy Minakov @SoftCollector,
1. Mask Surf itself doesn't collect any data. So you can read privacy policy from technology developers "The Tor Project":
2. Your real surfing speed will be different each time. From 20 MB/s to maybe 200KB/s. This is determined randomly but can be changed with speed settings.
3. No, it have not cookies control function. The anonymity is always a relative thing. Mask Surf Pro provides traffic encryption, traffic analysis protection, false IP addresses with country selection. It certainly is not everything, but it's more than offering any VPN service.

Tor Browser Bundle is good free standalone product. But it has limits. If you use Tor Browser Bundle you are limit to Firefox ESR modification with rare updates and fewer customization options. With Mask Surf Pro you can use last version of any popular browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera). With Mask Surf Everything you can use any program at all (apart from a few exceptions).

Furthermore Mask Surf has its own functions like country selection and speed filters.

Hi, you did not answer all my questions. I hope you can do now:
1. Does it work with other programs like Skype, Messenger Tools and i.e. Outlook (2007/2010)? 2. Does it work with HTTPS and SSL connections?

what do you mean by: 'Mask Surf Pro works separately from antivirus and antimalware software'. Does information through Mask bypass my antivirus/malware tools so I'm unprotected, or do I misunderstand your answer?

Carl Matteson I was willing to pay the discounted price for this interesting software, however, the company wants far too much unnecessary information for a purchase through PayPal. Someone should tell the company that the purpose of using a third party payment system like PayPal is to assure the seller of payment and to assure the purchaser that private information remains private. Too bad, the CNet review is quite good.

Advanced Onion Router is good free product with advanced functionality. But like in many open source programs its interface is too complicated... even for me. You can just compare the interface of both programs.
Also looks like Advanced Onion Router doesn't have speed settings. Or maybe it have but I don't find it. Because it have dozens of options out there and I can't understand the meaning of each.

Roderick Nicolson Can you tell me please which countries does it support? i.e. If I need to show a British IP address can it give me that?
On your site the information seems to suggest that the IP it gives is unregulated meaning it could give a different country each time a user connects through it. This could have serious consequences for the user.

Is the pc's antivirus program's reading of the data a security risk? Is it likely to send information anywhere?

Is the trial version the same as the licensed version, apart from lacking the licence code, or does one need to install a version that is only provided with the licence code?

Gerald Attrick Save yourself a lot of time, grief, and disappointment, folks. Just get Easy Hide-IP. It will cost you $30 a year to use dozens of servers around the world. It will slow you down, of course, but so will this program.. . a lot more. Consider lower DL speeds a defining characteristic of this breed of software. Simply stated, there ain't no Santa Claus, no matter what the Obama administration tells you.

Easy-Hide works from the getgo, no sweat and no aggravation. I've been using it for years. Even my cable ISP thinks I live in London.

I was planning to buy, but just read the License Policy on this page (upper right corner) and have a BIG problem with:
"Transfer of a license to another owned computer is not allowed"
»» Why not?? I don't understand this!!

After we buy it, it's ours to keep/to use/to re-install, either after a crash, an infection, an upgrade, or on a new PC or Laptop as we buy those with more frequency these days
So, I don't understand why this clause is valid, as can't find a logic explanation for its application.
Can you please address this point?

_*_ I purchased Mask Surf Pro through your Bits du Jour offer. As soon as I copy/pasted the registration key and registered the product Internet Explorer stopped connecting to the Internet.

I have tried uninstalling Mask Surf Pro, but IE still will not connect to the Internet no matter what I try.

There is no problem with the Internet itself as my stand-alone mail program still collects my mail, and I can use FireFox to connect normally (FF is how I am writing this now).

Please offer me a solution to this issue. I bought this program thinking it would make surfing the Internet safer, never thinking it would stop me from using IE.

My connection shows as working fine but since registering Mask Surf Pro it stopped working directly.

Please help...quickly

P.S. I tried using your support page but FF will not display the security information so I cannot send it via your site

Michael R. Living in Germany, I tried to set up USA as sole 'Seleced countries'.

Now when I start MaskSurf I get the message 'Unable to connect to TOR!' (*) and when clicking inside the 'Countries'-tab to the button 'obtain the list of countries' I get a message, that no connection could be established, because the target-computer does not allow a connection'.

(*) After that the user-proxy-server checkbox in the LAN-window of the preferences is checked, but without any entry in the following address and port edit-boxes. But even if I uncheck this box (and am able to access to the internet now), a click on the 'obtain the list of countries' does result in the same message...

What to do?

~~~~~~~~

Another question:

As I found out, the original TOR seems to switch from time to time the IP-Address, which is sometimes not desired, e.g. while inside a purchase transaction. Does this your version of TOR too and if yes, can this be avoided temporarily?

Software Babe "Fingerprint masking not supported at now."

If this is not supported, then WHAT IS THE POINT OF HAVING THIS SOFTWARE?????

The whole idea of PRIVACY is MASKING who you are, where you are, and the prevention of tracking your FINGERPRINTS.

It is probably better to jump from Proxy to Proxy as a hacker then to use this type of software, which may not be that reliable. It is not that hard to do.
