Download Hola VPN to hide your IP address
Every device that is connected to the Internet has a unique IP address (‘Internet protocol’), used for identification and communication. Your IP address tells other computers on the Internet where to deliver the data that you are requesting. It’s like your home address, which allows people to send you letters, and packages.
Every time you click something online, it’s like signing a guestbook and your IP address is the signature you leave behind. This includes social media sites, internet forums, chatrooms, and blogs you comment on. All of these platforms can view your IP address.

The simplest and most straightforward way to protect your IP address is to use a virtual private network (VPN) because this anonymizes your online activity using encryption. It also changes your IP address completely, placing your geolocation hundreds or maybe thousands of miles from where you actually are accessing the internet.
