How to test if your IP is hidden?
Hide My Ass! IP Checker will help you identify your current IP address with a single mouse click. As you may already know, your IP address works like a digital fingerprint which leaves a trace behind every time you visit a website. You can hide your true IP address by using a proxy or VPN service such as HMA Pro VPN, and then you can quickly use this simple extension to confirm that the rest of the internet only sees your fake IP address.
HMA! IP Checker in Action
HMA! IP Checker comes with 2 modes; simple and advanced. Simple mode only displays your IP address in a small uncluttered pop-up window, whereas advanced mode provides information such as your ISP, city, country, and your actual or fake position on the map.
It’s only a few kilobytes in size, and works really fast. It won’t slow down your browser at all. It also has some advanced options, such as IP change logging. With this option enabled the extension will check your IP address every few minutes, and if your IP changes it will be logged into the table. You may also wish to enable alerts; if your IP changes the extension’s icon will notify you by altering its colour.
Being free, fast and reliable it’s a must have tool for everyday safe browsing. It won’t help you encrypt your data (you should be using the VPN in order to encrypt all your Internet traffic) but will help you track the state of your proxy or VPN connection.
