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

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.

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.

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?

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.

Evgeniy Minakov @Cary Adams

There are about one thousand exit nodes in Tor network. So you really don't need public proxies with program which use Tor in smart way.

Mask Surf Pro doesn't require annual renewal payments. But new functions will not be added in the future. In fact it's connected things: constant development of modern software product requires time and efforts all the time and can't be paid by lifetime licenses.
If you are satisfied with Mask Surf Pro and it's discounted price you can use it.

Winamp music player no longer developed for several years but I still use it as the best Windows program to play music in my opinion. We decided to stop development of Mask Surf Pro because the way it works (changing proxy settings of browsers) has no future in several years. That's why Mask Surf Ultimate and Everything use TCP filtering driver and don't change any settings of any program.

We offered discount for Mask Surf Ultimate before. Maybe we will offer discount for Mask Surf Everything in Winter.

I will say, I give the trial a try and it seems to work pretty good.

I wish they would have mentioned that there was a limited amount of licenses and had a "No more license available" when that limit had been reached instead of sending out licenses that say "BLOCKED" when entered.

I hate it when I see offers like this, by entities claiming perfection, yet their software is still problematic, and barely at alpha-level, to say the least. Then a company rep comes to reply to potential customers with quite an attitude, telling a frustrated customer to "move on".

From my limited trial use I find it to be a very good program based on a few sites I visited for test such as IP recognition and such.

But, I would suggest that anyone who installs or uses this software take the time to READ their privacy policy, it states specifically that it does gather personal information in various way's, and it states SPECIFICALLY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION IS COLLECTED, so I say this to let all reading this know that it may not be as MASKING and private as you might think.

The privacy policy is rather disturbing to me, especially for a software that is supposed to be used to protect and mask privacy.

[ Heidi-Ann Kennedy-Fourkiller ] though any program can get dinged as malware, it's initially up to the anti malware people to explain, and they do a horrible job, but eventually it's up to the developer in question to run their program through [ VirusTotal . com ] and explain to us what they are doing that gets dinged, or fix their program to not get dinged ( ha! ) -- Mask Surf Pro SHOULD do some 'questionable' things because it's hijacking our Internet presentation, so there SHOULD be an anti malware report that catches it, but how do we independently confirm that that's ALL it's doing, that it is not spying on us?
__________

[ Bob User ], I used [ Tweaking . com ] free AIO All In One Windows repair, skipped right to the [ Fix ] tab, unchecked the top box [ ] and then scrolled down to check ONLY the Internet settings, re-register all files, and all service settings and service re-settings, let it -r-u-n-, and rebooted, and that fixed the Internet on both computers that Mask surf Pro tanked ( one had LAN no WAN, the other had nothing, both W764, both okay now without Mask surf Pro ).
__________

[ Evgeniy Minakov ] thanks, please note that if you feel frustrated, imagine someone with years of successful experience supporting BitsDuJour developers suddenly being unable to even communicate here because their computer cannot get on the Internet anymore, let alone the moribund challenges of downloading, installing, registering, and setting up a program -- oh, have we had a chance to actually USE it yet?!? 'Attitude' come across loud and clear with comments like "blame developer for all the world's evil" -- imagine if you received your own software and it failed to accomplish it's simplest tasks ( installation and registration ), then it tanked your computer, and you tried to fix your computer, and you tried to give feedback that the software was apparently NRFPTY Not Ready For Prime Time Yet ... imagine that ... times a few hundred ... this is a development arena, we expect to work together to get things right, just as we expect you to know your song well before you start singing, thanks for at least acknowledging that your first time out with a giveaway marketing presentation was a failure, now take advantage of the opportunity to make a few thousand loyal customers ( instead of annealing a bad reputation ).
__________

[ Brian Fisher ] thanks for reporting on other programs failing from this developer, may I suggest that one important benefit of BitsDuJour is the ability to TEST DRIVE before purchase. Whatever it is you are trying to do with YouTube, may I send you to [ AbelsSoft . net ] for his YSD YouTube Song Downloader ( Vimeo and videos, too ), free, and if it fails, your computers need some tweaks or additional programs, but until a program proves it's worth, why do we give people money? There are many alternatives to Mask surf, inside Google Chrome a free extension like [ Browsec ] works for me, and in combination with [ Incognito ] window mode, there no record out there or in here of ME on the web.
__________

... I've been at this for a day and a half now, since a few minutes after it supposedly became available ( never, actually, for me, in spite of direct email registration twice ), had tried an earlier offering through GlarySoft Giveaway ( so, this is the FIRST time they tried a giveaway?!? NOT ), and I'm wondering why I just don't move on, burnt twice should be enough for most consumers to know NRFPTY when they see it.

Sorry, [ Evgeniy Minakov ], but you are just going to have to get a sense of humor, laugh at this, fix everyone's computers, and try, try, try again -- Colonel Sanders famously tried 1,000 times before getting a first chance to get past rejection, have some fried chicken, and try again.

Mark Magill My other browsers say "anonymized" but Firefox says it is not. Am I missing something in the setup or something? Thanks.

c User LOL @Peter Blaise. I hope the developer takes your sage advice.

I just downloaded and installed the software without any problems. I think the wrinkles may have been worked out.

I just have one issue that needs explanation:
I start the app (version 4.1)
click Help
click About
And the popup displays: "Updates subscription expires: 5/18/2017 10:40:00 AM"

Will this app become unusable on 5/18/2017 ????

P Davis Hi. I have a couple of questions:

1. Your ad says IPs are available for 50 countries.What are the countries?

2. Does the number of IPs available vary between your two products, pro and everything?

3. How persistent is the connection? Can I watch content on Netflix that is country specific without interruptions?

Jim Buchanan Small questions which might make me look like an idiot but here goes.
Does Mask Surf Everything encompass the work done by Mask Surf Pro?

I just downloaded both. Does the key I received work for both products?

I believe it said one computer and one laptop for Mask Pro Surf. Is it the same thing for Mark Surf everything? Would be nice, but I can't get too greedy.

Should I have both programs on the same computer?

I haven't installed anything yet. Just waiting for your answers.

O. J. Installed and registered program but am trying to setup and I cannot get it to download the countries. It tells me the program has stopped working and it will look for a solution to the problem and get back to me if one is found. Could the registration code be bad? Can you send me another one to try out and see if it will work?

Thanks in advance,
OJ

Brian Fisher Sounds like a broken windows component. Uninstall Masksurf. Open Command Prompt as administrator. Type sfc/scannow. Let it finish. If clear, restart your p.c. and reinstall Masksurf. Hope this helps?

Status after 1 1/2 days -- I installed ( dozens of times ) and am presented with the registration screen, where all button clicks lead to error messages, saying either "cannot browse there" or "cannot register" equivalents, then after 3 attempts to register via email, it finally gave me something new -- it tanked off screen completely, and then only loaded without any window, which I killed with task manager, and now it won't load anything at all. And again. And again. And again ... and so ....

Okay, here's my problem with modern programs -- they have no integrity, no self-check, no self-repairing skill.

After multiple reboots and attempts to install and uninstall and reinstall multiple versions and register the Mask Surf Pro program ...

( a ) there is no way to track what changes have been made after so many ersatz attempts, how many times I have tried to discipline the stranger inside my computer, and

( b ) after so many failures, why is the program unable to say "... it looks like I failed, would you like me to fix myself? ..."

I get the feeling developers are happy to market to people whose computers behave exactly like the developer's computer, and all others can "... take a hike... it's your fault ..."

I never got this kind of negligent disregard from Peter Norton, I only got immediate fixes, and a "... thank you ..."

Frank User Works for me on Windows 10 x64 Pro Chrome. Thanks for straightening out the key deal. Looks like Russ operation. Pick your countries & 'Agents' (that is the OS and Browser selections under Masking tab). Left Operating system language unchecked so uses its default English - my Chrome opened saying something about ISP France. Not sure if part of masking routine. Seems ok tho.
Has optional setting to Auto launch w/ Windows. Left that to not run. Looks pretty fast though. I know will come in handy, esp sports. Added US UK Canada & France for their music. Thanks BDJ

jboy I've been happy with the anonymoX add-on in Firefox and IceDragon but thought I'd give this a try.

Downloaded and installed fine on WIn 10 Home x 64. A poorly designed, crowded UI pops up that states "15 day trial" but if you read further down there is both a "Register by e-mail" and "Register" button that, if you click on, gives you a window to insert license key. Yes, this should all be on one page and clearer. After you register it closes and nothing happens. I had to click on shortcut a few times to get it to open and finally the registered copy opened. Again, poor design, should open automatically after entering key. It did not detect any browsers, I have 5, but Firefox and that said in red "not anonymized". I tried to figure out how to remedy that but already had a bad taste for it and finally just got tired and gave up.

I have no confidence in this program, uninstalled! Thanks anyway, BDJ team.

Heidi-Ann Kennedy-Fourkiller I case you all didn't look at the link "zord" gave this is old software that is no longer being updated. It has been replaced by the "Ultimate Edition."
Don't except it to keep working as browsers and Win 10 gets updated.

It would have made more sense for the maker to have at least offered a discount to valid software.

Evgeniy Minakov Hello folks,

1)No, Mask Surf Pro isn't discontinued. News article from 2015 was deleted.
2)It is live software product which receives updates every several months.
3)We can see more that 300 registrations from this promo. We hope that you will enjoy Mask Surf Pro for free. If you have some troubles with registration now please save license key and download Mask Surf Pro installation before the end of this promo. It is promo license key and it doesn't work with regular installation form website Download section.
4)Chrome use system (Internet Explorer) proxy settings. So all versions of chrome will receive anonymity automatically. The absence of detection limits the usage of user agent masking.

Registration/activation window is standard feature of Intelliprotector service. Personally I think that such design is OK, but you can create new design and suggest it to them.

Sometimes program closes after registration. If you are so good with low level protection programming you can create new software protection service and suggest it to us. We will be glad to try your system and check if it suits the business needs of our software.

Heidi-Ann Kennedy-Fourkiller @Evgeniy Minakov,
Ok may I ask then why you don't list it on your products page: http://thanksoft.com/
Why there is no comparison on: http://thanksoft.com/prod...son-table/

What is the difference between all three would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

Vlado User @Evgeniy Minakov,
You write (about Chrome) "... The absence of detection limits the usage of user agent masking. ...".

But that is very important, I think (!!).

For example, I need to buy (download) software for Windows 10 (just a short time offer), but I have only Windows 7 now.

So I need to pass to the store that I have Windows 10 (for future use of this software).

But Chrome only passes the actual version of Windows. :-(( .

The IP test site showtheip.net has SHA1 based SSL certificate. Chrome doesn't like it any more. You can use any other IP checking website instead.

Vlado User @Heidi-Ann Kennedy-Fourkiller,

" ...The IP Test gave this result: (On FF 53.0.2) ...".

Try "PAUSE MASKING" button ---> then TEST - it will be OK.
Then "START MASKING" (again) ---> then TEST - failed.

It is, what I write above - Chrome (ver_58) and FF (ver_53) have failed for the same reason (I think) :-((( .

Try it all above with MSIE - and It will be OK - In both states (I tried it with MSIE_8).

Ricky Gallaher Hey bitsdujour.com web admins,

14 day licenses! software with bugs.

You have given great software for years. Why waste your loyal customers time on this stuff. Did you try it out before offering it.

I got excited before I read all the above critiques, then I felt sad.

My last thought is, Did the boss/owner of this site know you are offering stuff like this?

I love you guys, but WOW.

Fred License registers for the full pro version. Disregard the Purchase License dialog. After registration, reopen the program and click on the Help button at the top, then click on the About Mask Surf Pro button and a window will appear with a box that shows license information with a subscription update date of 1/1/0001. Regarding Firefox, there is a box you have to click/check to anonymize it that a previous reviewer apparently missed. Don't understand why it is not automatic as the other browsers detected. Admittedly, this offering could have used a much better presentation and explanation of how to engage it, but perhaps their goal was to minimize the number of free license registration for indefinite use.
