Free Online Anonymity Services

Various ways for you to maintain your privacy online


BeHidden lets you surf the web anonymously. The service conceals your IP address from the sites you visit, and encrypts all communications with them. It also blocks cookies and disables JavaScript. Free service limited to 50MB/per day.


You can surf the web anonymously via the IDZap gateway service. Optionally, you can decide to block cookies and Javascript. You have to register before you can start using the service. There is a premium service level available as well.


Proxify enables anyone to surf the web anonymously and securely. The service hides your IP address, and provides an encrypted connection to circumvent network monitoring. You can choose to block cookies, hide your referrer information, remove ads, minimize page cacheing and configure many other aspects of your web surfing experience. The premium version of the service is ad-free and provides a faster connection, and many other features.

Stealth Message

This service enables you to send a free encrypted message to anyone. Individual messages can be up to 20,000 characters long. The service uses 156-bit encryption and SSL-based secure browser access to protect communications, and you can even (laboriously) type out your message on a "virtual keyboard" by clicking on individual key buttons inside your browser if you're worried about somebody logging every keystroke you enter.

You don't need to install any software to use Stealth Message, since the recipient is sent a URL and keyword combination that they then use to access your message via the Web. For the truly paranoid, you can even specify a time delay after which the message will "self-destruct" and no longer be accessible to the recipient.

The Cloak

Free anonymous web browsing service, with an encrypted connection. Users can configure the behavior of the anonymous proxy to for example delete cookies and Javascript automatically.

Another way to stay anonymous is to use a disposable email address whenever you want to sign up for a forum or online service, or in any other situation in which you'd rather not reveal your real email address. These temporary email accounts typically last anywhere from a few minutes to a few days, just long enough to get the basics done.
