What do I get with the Hide IP Platinum / NG?
What more do you want from a proxy software. I feel if the tool works as promised it will be a bonus by itself.
It is worth buying the Hide IP Platinum / NG?
I have tried lot of proxy tools. I can say that Hide IP is fast when compared to other proxy softwares. But my personal opinion is that this tool is just not worth the money.
I downloaded the trial version from the site and I was totally disappointed using the version. No matter what country I selected when choosing the proxy server, I ended up with the same IP address. After starting the software, I checked my IP on the site whatismyipaddress.com to see if my IP details are concealed by the software. Though the IP address was hidden, I could clearly see that my location was not hidden. If you are looking for a complete privacy, you may be totally disapointed using the software. But if you are looking for simple proxy server to hide you IP, this may be a good software.
The Hide IP provides you good and simple interface for the configuration. Unlike some other proxy tools, there is no need to restart your browser when using the software.
