Have you ever thought about the fact that since you're able to see your ip address, other people can too? This can be a scary thought because from your ip address, people can see the city you are in at this exact moment. With all the hackers and cyber criminals, being on the internet has become very dangerous.

There are ways to prevent someone from viewing your ip address though. You can do this by simply having an anonymous proxy. An anonymous proxy will change your IP address to fake one, at a fake location. This could be the key to protecting yourself, and your family.
