You cant stop that...
Its part of the process of the interenet.

BUT...

Everyone see's only their own information.
It doesnt broadcast on the site.

I dont see yours,
you dont see mine.

Heya...

You could use a proxy server. Just search Google or whatever for "free proxy server" and you will get loads of info. If you have anymore queires, or help using one.. Just U2U me


Actually many ISPs put all their users directly through a proxy server, to see if you are... Next time you see one of those sign things with your IP on, look at the number - Then go to (assuming you are using Windows) Start | Run. Type command, press enter. Then at the prompt type ipconfig.

If the first number given is the same as the banner told you, you are not behind a proxy server. Sorry, if you are unclear what a proxy server actually is - in your case, when you hide behind a proxy server, your ip address is faked. To use one you will just have to find one online, and then tell all your programs that use the Internet (e.g. Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Outlook Express, msn, etc) to go through that proxy server.

Like I said, do a search on it, and ask me for more help if you need it. Hope this helps.

Also... You could try and find a free anonymous proxy server. This will hide your IP address completely.

If you click on a link, your PC sends off you IP address to the server. It has to know where to send the data. This is the way it works, I'm afraid.

You can not stop your IP from being logged when you click on a link or load a web page. You can go through a proxy server, but it also holds logs and at the end of the day, there is no such thing as anonymity on the internet.

True anonymous proxy servers are truly anonymous... Well thats probably what they like us to think, lol. They are a lot of money though.

this is the best available program
www.steganos.com...
Not perfect and a pro can still get nF0 on you
not as much
It will slow your surfing way down if your on high speed adsl or cable ect because the proxies arnt as fast

no trick. the awe thor i.t.'s know what we're all thinking, when we're thinking it, how much money we have access to, our spending habits, what circles of influence we're in, and where we live. if and when they decide to round up dissenters, we will be the first to go.
someone's knocking, ....i'll be right back.

I was at home the other night reading posts here on ATS and someone put my "info" up on a post...

I was reading it to my girlfriend, she said yeah I hate when people do that... then I read the very bottom line to her...

"whats that van doing parked in front of your house?"

she freaked out.... our neighbor actually parks his van our front everynight... so whoever put that up thanks. it was awesome !!!

Yes, you can use a proxyserver, for staying anonymous. But be carefull because someone can now you IP via the connections logs of the proxy, if it's not an anonymous one.

For trojans, use a firewall.

The only way arround this is if you use a private IP behind a static IP. Of course you would need a router to do this, that however is a different forum. But still, your static IP is logged in each webserver you visit. But if you are on a network of thousands, it would be a little more difficult to trace your IP back to your workstation. However it can be done, so don't get fooled into thinking this is fool proof.

And like Zzub said "You can go through a proxy server, but it also holds logs and at the end of the day, there is no such thing as anonymity on the internet."

Even anonymous proxies aren't "anonymous". They have logs with each and every IP that has been connected to that server. All the CIA has to do is get the logs from the server. From that they can trace you down to your workstation. Anonymous proxies makes the tracing of your IP more difficult, but it can be done.

It is naive to think there is such a thing as anonymity on the internet anyway. Keep your nose clean, and you have noting to worry about...right??

*applauds*

And also, the law means that your own ISP has to keep the logs for a period of 6 to 12 months, depending on which country you are in.

The law can request all the logs from the servers and trace the route back to you. It's done every day.

If you want to have some privacy, visit an internet cafe. (once)

Yea I know I mentioned proxy servers, but like everyone else has said... They are not 100% anonymous, as the government can just demand the logs.

I don't think their is anyway to be 100% anonymous on the internet, so if you have nothing to hide, then you shouldn't need to worry.

But on the other hand, if you do... Lol... Then I think the best way would to either only use internet cafes (not the same one more than once), or don't use the internet full stop.

I found something else out today while I was programming, that if someone is behind a 'normal' proxy server, you can still easily get their real IP address, it's stored in another server variable.

Also boys and girls remember to always practice safe computing.

If your using an "internet cafe" NEVER, and I mean NEVER, enter any personal information.

It's way to easy to install trojans and key loggers on those things. Only use it for general purpose surfing!

Oh and just for the sake of conversation, proxies are used to cut down on the amount of HTTP requests sent over the internet. Their purpose is to cache web pages for easy retrieval by the client. Not really to mask your IP.

Well obviously Dr. Know, lol.

Yea proxies do that also... Oh well. There's no privacy anywhere anymore, lol.
