What is IP Masking? How to use Fake IP address?


What is Ip Masking?
IP masking is hiding your Original(Dynamic/Static) IP address so that you can not be traced.  IP masking is using Fake IP address for your machine.


For Example, Let us assume your ip address is 173.23.22.212 and your location is xxxx.

Using IP masking, you can make your IP address is 202.102.12.123(fake IP Address) and your location becomes yyyy.

Using Proxy IP Address , you can hide your IP.  Read this article : What is Proxy IP Address?

This can be achieved by the following methods:

So won't i be traced now?  The Answer is yes and No.  It is depending on your anonymity level of your Proxy IP address.

Different Types of Anonymity Levels:
Transparent Proxy

      This type of proxy server identifies itself as a proxy server and also makes the original IP address available through the http headers. These are generally used for their ability to cache websites and do not effectively provide any anonymity to those who use them. However, the use of a transparent proxy will get you around simple IP bans. They are transparent in the terms that your IP address is exposed, not transparent in the terms that you do not know that you are using it (your system is not specifically configured to use it.)

Anonymous Proxy
   This type of proxy server indentifies itself as a proxy server, but does not make the original IP address available. This type of proxy server is detectable, but provides reasonable anonymity for most users.

Distorting Proxy
   This type of proxy server identifies itself as a proxy server, but make an incorrect original IP address available through the http headers.

High Anonymity Proxy
   This type of proxy server does not identify itself as a proxy server and does not make available the original IP address.
