How To Change Your IP Address Using Tor Browser Bundle

An IP Address (Internet Protocol Address) is essentially your digital fingerprint on the internet. Wherever you visit websites or use Internet services, your IP is also transmitted and recorded in the logs kept on those servers. The legal practical use of these IPs are for security purposes. For example if someone from another country tries to login to your Facebook account, the page will recognize that the IP address is from a different location and he won’t be able to log in.

So, Why do I need to Hide my IP Address?
As i said above, your IP is your digital fingerprint. So, if you’re doing something you’re not supposed to be doing, someone can grab your IP address and track you down.
The bottom line is this: Your IP address was never meant to be a secret. Whatever you do on the Internet, your IP address is known not only to you, but to your ISP and the admins of the site you’re connecting with. So, you are telling them your IP just by using your network.
If you like to keep your privacy online, it’s necessary to change your IP address.

There are many methods to change or hide your IP address, but in this tutorial I am going how to show you how to do that by using the Tor Browser Bundle. This bundle contains everything you need to anonymously browse the Internet. This package requires no installation. Just extract it and run.
