In this day and age everyone on the net is tracked and monitored like sheep on a farm. Cookies are stored on your computer and IP?s are logged leaving digital footprints of your surfing. This information will help you be one step ahead of the trackers.
For the people that don?t know what an IP is, its basically your computers address when you connect to the Internet. When you visit a site your IP is logged showing that you've visited the page. Cable/DSL users have an unchanging IP, which makes them more susceptible to tracking as opposed to a static (changing) 56k dial up user.
How this works is very easy. Basically what your doing is entering in another person or company?s IP that will be pinged (a ping is a signal sent out by PC machines to gather information about its connected user) instead of your IP when you visit sites.
Connect to the Internet (as you usually do). Upon connection open up Internet Explorer and click on Tools; then click Internet options.
