Hide My IP - Best VPN Android App To Anonymize Your Identity

We live in a World surrounded by network of networks called the Internet. Today Internet has become the basic need of every human being. By means of Internet we connect to other computers worldwide for sharing information. Every computer or any android device using the Internet has an IP address which uniquely identifies your device on the network. Two device can not have same IP address. By default your IP address is unsecure which means if any hacker gets to know your IP, be it of your computer or android, he can track your online activity and intercept your information before it reach to the desired server and can roll back malicious instructions back to you in order to hack your personal info.

However it is also not easy to find one's IP address if you have not shared with anyone, but there are many tools available that can scan your wireless routers to find your IP address, there make, model and configuration settings. If your network is wired then you should not worry much, but being online on a wireless network opens gates to many security risks. But one should not worry much if they are using a dynamic IP instead of static IP.

How To Protect Your Android Phone From IP Tracking


To protect your android IP address, you should use a VPN service. A VPN service is best known for anonymizing your identity on the internet, so that nobody can know your original location. A VPN also provides an encrypted tunnel to send an receive information between your device and VPN server. For this purpose you should use Hide My IP VPN app.

What Is A VPN


What is vpn, A VPN is an extension of Private Network that provides an encrypted security tunnel between your android device and the VPN server to send and receive information, so that no one can pry upon your network activity. A VPN is created by establishing a virtual point-to-point connection through the use of dedicated connections, virtual tunneling protocols, or traffic encryption. Major implementations of VPNs include OpenVPN and IPsec.

VPN is best suited for unsecured Open WiFi networks that can compromise your personal data anytime you connect to them. Employees of an Organization should also use the company's VPN in order to access the intranet, to prevent security breaches.

VPN services are not free, but they are also not much costly. Cost depends on the type of the device you are using. Currently a popular VPN service is Avast VPN which costs you around $20 per year. Yes it is costly. But if are looking for a free VPN service then Hide My IP android app VPN is the best choice, because it is most easiest to configure, includes an option to use your own proxy server and an inbuilt network data monitor. Currently no app in play store is that much easy to use.

Hide My IP - Best VPN Android App To Anonymize Your Identity


Hide My IP is a Free Android VPN app that secures your android phone from malicious threats and phishing attacks by providing an encrypted tunnel between your device and the Hide My IP servers. This encrypted tunnel cannot be forged by hackers or attackers.

Choose Between TCP and UDP Internet Protocols

You can choose which internet protocol to use for the VPN connection either TCP or UDP. UDP is faster than TCP because it does not check for packet errors. But TCP is more reliable. Its your call which protocol to use. but by default you should use 'TCP'. To select go to 'Menu>Settings' and select your desired protocol.

Verdict


Hide My IP VPN app for android is the best app for anonymizing your identity on internet. The app is light weight and can be configured quickly.

The app does not slow down your internet speed and provides a great free VPN solution for your android phone and tablet.

I have previously used Avast SecureLine, Opera Max and SecurPro, out the three SecurPro gave me worst experience as the app was crashing and was itself acting as a malicious app. But Hide My IP is the most reliable VPN app for android because it does not crash, does not stop working after 7 days like Avast SecureLine and does not slow down your network like Opera Max.

This is the best android VPN app that you can install on your phone without any issues in order to get the best network security and anonymizing your IP address.
