StayInvisible.com is aimed to secure you from revealing your IP address to unauthorized users or to anyone who can be interested in it (and note that there might be hackers among them)..
There are pieces of information you provide Internet servers with that can be available for other people without your agreement and even without your knowing. Among such data the IP address is the most critical one.
Anonymous Proxy Servers
Anonymous proxy servers hide your IP address and thereby prevent your from unauthorized access to your computer through the Internet. They do not provide anyone with your IP address and effectively hide any information about you and your reading interests. Besides that, they don't even let anyone know that you are surfing through a proxy server. Anonymous proxy servers can be used for all kinds of Web-services, such as Web-Mail (MSN Hot Mail, Yahoo mail), web-chat rooms, FTP archives, etc.
Why Should You Use Anonymous Proxy Servers?
Any web resource you access can gather personal information about you through your unique IP address - your ID in the Internet. They can monitor your reading interests, spy upon you and, according to some policies of the Internet resources, deny accessing any information you might need.
You might become a target for many marketers and advertising agencies who, having information about your interests and knowing your IP address as well as your e-mail, will be able to send you regularly their spam and junk e-mails.
A web site can automatically exploit security holes in your system using not-very-complex, ready-made, free hacking programs. Some of such programs may just hang your machine, making you reboot it, but other, more powerful ones, can get access to the content of your hard drive or RAM. Everything a web site may need for that is only your IP address and some information about your operating system.
Using an anonymous proxy server from Stayinvisible.com you don't give anybody chance to find out your IP address.
