The proxy servers are generally the most common approach for hiding IP addresses. The client computers on a network can indirectly access the Internet or other networks using the proxy server. The proxy server allows the client computer to share its connection for files, data and resources hosted on the other servers. The proxy server can provide the accessed data to the client computers either connecting to the requested server or from the cache. However, on occasions, the proxy server might modify the client’s request or the server’s response due to some reasons.

There can be a number of strategies for using proxy servers and thus hiding your IP address and access the Internet anonymously.
