    Am just wondering, how do you get a fake IP address that shows you as being in a different country?

      Hi Cindyvine, I'll tell you but you have to tell me what you find. OK?

      This shows you how to do it right from your computer with no-hassle. It's a video and is a little hard to follow, but if you watch it carefully a few times, you'll figure it out. There is no sound or narration:

      Or, you can use a proxy server, but that's probably not what you're looking for since they cost money and will show a different IP every time you use it, nor can you say what country you want it to indicate (I think.) But this explains a lot:

      And finally, one such proxy server's website:

      Don't forget. I want to know.

      If your only desire is to get by country specific filters (not looking for anonymity) you just need a proxy site, there are tons that are marketed towards myspace and facebook users (as corporate intranets freq block access)

      you essentially just browse through that site, rather than your own browser and the site you are looking at read your ip-as the site owners instead.

      such a method is ONLY good for the purpose of getting around a country block - if your up to clickfraud or want to be anonymous you'll want to invest in your own dedicated proxy server

      The TOR plugin for fiorefox can simplify the process for you...but google blocks it!

      tell me the country you want to be in and i can send you a link

      You can hide your IP using an external proxy server. This could mask your real IP with a fake one that shows you as being in a different country. Aftet having VPN service,if you want to know your fake ip visit

    I am not a techie, but I believe that you can use proxy servers to hide or change your IP address fairly easily.

    Maybe one of the techie types might know a little more smile

    You can tell a trusted friend in a different country to do it on your behalf.

    If you choose to install tor, then after installation you have to restart Fire Fox.

    Then go to Extra > Switch Proxy > manage proxies > add > standard > next.

    Fill in:

    Next enter the following information into both the HTTP Proxy and SSL Proxy fields. Hostname: Port: 8118. Set up any proxy exceptions you may need and then click on OK.(Do this also for the proxy label)

    Choose in Firefox > extra > switch Proxy > Preferences > and apply "show toolbar"

    Now the toolbar will be shown in FF.
    Choose proxy, your proxy server you just filed in:

    for other proxys go to:

    When done, go to and look if youre IP is different from above.

    wow, thanks for the info MangoGirl, you are good at this!  Adsense won't recognise my Chinese address as being valid so won't let me join even though it is my real address.  I'm leaving here soon and wanted to give them my next address but that won't work as they automatically recognise my IP as being from China, so I have to give my address in both English and Chinese and no way around that.  Was wondering if I could somehow change my IP that Adsense don't see it as China, that I might be able to sign up.  Ahhhhhh, but even with MG's step by step instructions on how to do it, it makes my head hurt.  Need a coffee.  Am too untechnical!

    Cindy, are you trying to go on the lam again???  Running from the law is not a good idea.  And if you're going to do it, then you probably shouldn't discuss your evasive tactics in the public forum.  big_smile

    Cindy you need to not just have an IP address in a recognised country - but also a mailing address -which they definitly use before they will pay you and  probably a ph number as well - not sure on the last.

    Shalini Kagalposted 11 years ago

    Lissie's absolutely right - if it's for Google Adsense, don't go thru a proxy. Maybe asking a family member to do it for you from their computer with their address would be an option.

    I don't personally buy the idea of changing IP for any reason. Any program that does not accept people from my location is simply not worth the stress.

    I may be a bit late throwing this out there, but proxy web sites are an easy way to appear to have a different ip address.  If you don't mind paying and also want a bit of security, you can use a VPN to encrypt your traffic and route it through a server in the country of your choice.  That server's IP address will then appear to be yours.

    I use Hide My Ass ... also known as HMA when I do not want google to see my foot prints when promoting my content. HMA is a monthly service. You can get unlimited web proxies with the service to surf online anonymously, hide your IP address and protect your privacy.

    An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label assigned to each device connected to a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication.

    So if you want to Access internet You must have an IP address you can't access the internet without an IP.
    On the other hand, you can hide your IP address via using somebody else's IP
    This might be done by two methods
    1. Without somebody's permission - You hacked into his system and now his computer is yours. You can do anything with his connection.
    2. With permission - millions of companies provide VPN service so that you can use their IPs to access the internet by paying some charges(free VPNs are also available)
    3. Use Online proxy servers - It's like opening a website first and then you can access anything through that website without sharing the real IP of your (you can see a list of web proxies here free web proxy list)

    I would prefer to use VPN to hide your real IP address. You can use market leader HMA VPN.
