Platinum Hide IP is a software with which you can conceal your IP address from websites. You can download a free one-day trial from their website, http://www.platinumhideip.com.
It works a lot better then your average free proxy on the internet. Free proxies are usually spammed to the brink with advertisements and pop ups, which is not the case with Platinum Hide IP. It's great for getting un banned from your favorite forums, or if you feel the need to browse anonymously. You can set it so that your IP automatically changes every set number of minutes, and you can even decide which country you want your IP to be from.
Problem, admin?I have personally had success with this software. The moderator of a certain forum banned me, but I came right back! He couldn't keep me away. His ban was strong, but my Platinum Hide IP was stronger! The lulz were epic.
The interface is very easy to use. It even shows you a map of where the IP you have selected is located.
For those of you in countries with oppressive governments, this software may help you beat government censorship. And, one of the best things about it, is that it's fast. It doesn't slow you down while you're browsing, like some proxies will do.
I haven't used it to the maximum yet, so I don't know if there are any limits to how many proxies it will provide. But during the few days I've been using it, I've not had a problem with that. So if the moderator banned the proxy I was using, I would simply click a button, and BAM! I'm behind another proxy, no wasting time searching for another suitable proxy.
Pros: Fast, extremely easy to use, and very effective.
Cons: There aren't really any. It's as good a proxy service as you are going to get for the money.
So at the end of the day, I would recommend getting this software, if you have need of a good, reliable proxy service. I have not encountered any problem so far. It cost 30 bucks, but right now there is a special going on where you can get it for only 14.99, which is a hell of a deal if you want to get it. If you really need a proxy right now, you can just download it and use the one day trial it comes with, just to test it out.
