Security researcher John Mason compiled a list of 26 paid VPN's that claimed no logging and do actually log. He writes for an affliate site - but he's the guy that first wrote about Chrome extensions leaking your DNS.
IPVanish has partnered with Pornhub to offer a free VPN service to get round the age verification requirements, Mindgeek, Pornhub's parent company also created AgeID in conjunction with the British Government
This is the list
There's different types of VPN. There's a corporate VPN such as Cisco AnyConnect, this is for business. Then there is "Anonymizers", they change your IP address into something that can't be traced back to you, such as Private Internet Access. Then there is literal "VPN's", which stands for "virtual private network", done by software such as Hamachi, and it's intended purpose is to create large LAN's, so you and your friend can play Playstation together.
I have been using PIA and other VPNs (Mullvad, StrongVPN, Anonymizer) for years now. I consider myself very informed on VPN and have helped spread the word about VPN to many other redditors.
I have no reason to doubt PIA. These are the same guys from Bitcoin (and they are one of the few that accept Bitcoin), and they sponsor EFF. They have more servers than any of the other VPNs, and you can see that difference with their speeds. Plus, they take bitcoin. Any provider that doesn't, you should be skeptical of.
PIA is highly recommended, and I don't think I am alone in this thinking.
It was absolutely necessary. I went dark on day one when Anonymizer rolled out. Games have been a little more peaceful as a blue player. Absolutely less artillery focus.
Working as intended and a great gift from WG.
Heres a list of vpn that log ( most of them even tell they dont )
Like astrill they claim no logs. but they do .
Look for VPN services, they are the ones you need to change your IP to the one located in another continent. Anonymizer, NordVPN have a lot of servers to change IP. And yes, I suggest changing it and connecting to different ones every time
I remember how one of the Lulzsec members were caught because of HideMyAss (except they don't even need a security letter apparently).
Also some FBI audiences at Tor presentations have claimed that Anonymizer gives information on users, and complained that TOR does not.
IP address anonymization/hiding is not a function performed by software; it's a service provided by some other person/company, who replaces your IP address with theirs. The service provider promises not to release, or to release only in certain circumstances, the relationship between your IP address, your login information, and the externally visible IP address that they're using on your behalf.
That service often requires software to be installed on your device; but the privacy actually is created by the service.
So you shouldn't be looking for programs, but for anonymization/VPN services. I have been happy with Private Internet Access for VPN, but I use VPN more for security than for anonymization. is probably the vendor who has been doing this the longest. has a catchy name but actually logs traffic and doesn't provide a lot of privacy if someone comes after you.
I'm glad to see more of them accepting cash in the mail. I'm beginning to think this entire list can be culled down to just a few that accept cash. It is had to imagine that the company isn't serous about privacy when they accept cash as a payment method.
From the new list, those that accept cash payment:
That makes the list more manageable. I'd take out IVPN on further review as they keep a 10 minute log. Anonymizer has a 24 hour log. That takes it down to 3.
I like Liquid VPN's style, going to give them a closer look.
Cool matrix chart of the whole survey.
Anonymizer sure is for avoiding xvm but as purple dude I use it so enemy arty doesnt go "Oh enemy got purple 140, im not gonna focus him like xvm focus cause I dont xvm focus mit let me just kill him first". Also its quite fun when people start trash talking me before knowing my stats and they are yellow/green :)
I needed a VPN for privacy so I was recommended to check NordVPN or Anonymizer and went with Nord because it also has P2P servers. I was told that free VPNs sell your data to third parties or are limited in data so I got a paid one instead.
Excuse the double post but for those who haven't been following, today is the last chance for many VPN providers to get great deals. Including :-
PrivateInternetAccess, TorGuard, , LiquidVPN, Overplay, Invisible Browsing VPN and Anonymizer.
If that pisses you off so much then you probably did not have a look at all the options WG gives you for your own "protection"
Just to name a few: Anonymizer, Turn off Team Chat, Deactivate Messages from People outside of your Friend List
You could use the Anonymizer to reduce toxicity towards you.
This will not protect you from those people in the future (after the game), but it can help reducing hate from people that don't like your statistics while in a game.
More info on the anonymizer here:
Anonymizer gives players the privacy they should have, which protects them from being focused or getting harassed for having bad stats. That's it, really.
Everyone has the right to privacy. Nobody should see your stats during the battle. This feature was more than necessary for the game and people who cannot accept that are simply too entitled and pathetic.
People, who are getting angry at others for using the Anonymizer, cannot accept the fact, that it's an actual feature, unlike XVM. Getting mad at others for not being able to quickly judge them is quite pathetic, really...
Anonymizer is for ultimate alpha males. Either you are a red tomato that has an alpha life outside of the game and dont want to be harassed by virgin tryhards, or you are the unicum who is the alpha inside the game. Only the queers who are struggling to become either one of these alpha variants would whine about it.
Google'd the VPNs whilst making my way through the list, and reading what other redditors said about 'em.
PIA - Don't use
NORDPVN - Don't use
ExpressVPN - Don't use
TorGuard - Don't use
Anonymizer - Don't use
IPredator is the first in the list that seems to be decent enough.
Is there anyone able to recommended a working VPN to view other Countries Netflix libraries. I was using UnblockUs for around a year, until Netflix decided to block everything. Since then I have tried . Anonymizer Universal. ExpressVPN, and I am yet to find one that is working correctly. Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Anonymizer mode was made for you then, no one can tell if you're good or bad.
And I don't really believe the part about not using the cheats, you have to intentionally install them. They don't install on their own.
>VI. NON-COLLECTABLE INFORMATION
The photos you upload to Anonymizer are processed in the RAM. We do not collect or store any of these photos in any form and don’t use it for machine learning or neural network training in any way.
Under VIII. HOW COLLECTABLE INFORMATION IS USED it says stuff about name, age, sex (yes please), blah blah blah being used, but if you just use the anonymizer, none of that is applicable I think. You upload the image and it does it right away with no other info to input.
Better late than never. Watching his facial expression for years playing this game made me wonder when he will pull the plug, you could see the pain. A job's a job I guess.
And for you disagreeing with his critique of the current state of the game, you have to try to see it from his perspective, a skilled player's. All WG has done in the last three years is to lower the influence of skilled players and introduce mechanics (crutches) for the average skilled to be competitive. The rewards of being good at the game do not compensate for getting shat on by arty and other crutch mechanics every single game.
It says it all when the only thing they gave the skilled players in the last couple of years was the Anonymizer.
It’s definitely worth the watch. I highly recommend watching the first installation also.
Here is a summary of the film: The first installment of Shadow Gate demonstrated that the shadow government consists of government contractors; defense, intelligence, security, and so on.
When the first trailer was aired, a little known Anonymizer project called ION 2 was scrapped.
On the day Shadow Gate had an early release, a well planned targeted smear campaign by media outlets and social media influencers was launched to distract away from the subtle panic the military industrial complex was going through in the background.
The websites of Dynology, Jones Group International, and ClearForce were removed, modified, and changed in what appears to be a cover-up.
But why? What was so dangerous about Shadow Gate and our whistleblowers that the documentary created such a knee-jerk reaction? That is the subject of this documentary.
Ok im now in bakkes inside RL
Under Anonymizer I see the option "Switch to Quickchat Only Mode During Kickoff"
I'm guessing I need to enable this setting and then inside Rocket League set all chats to off.
Is that correct or am I missing something?
"Finding himself in a world where anonymous miscreants try to force their misconceived ideals and control, Ryk decided it was time to level the playing field. The Anonymizer is for those that would to fight fire with fire, and who are not complacent with simply turning the other cheek! "
Is this straight up a mask built for going and attacking protesters?
I've had a mixed bag of results ever since i turned the Anonymizer on last week. Im not always focused down by the enemy SPG but sometimes i'll receive the undivided attention from all 3 SPGs. I had an enemy on multiple occassions ignore an easily pennable friendly in front of me just to focus me down. They usually (but not always) died in the process of performing such a bold play.
Here is a relevant article:
Public Service Announcement: Remember to turn off any VPN, Proxy, or Anonymizer services when certifying
Took 10 weeks for that guy to get it resolved unfortunately :( hope you can get it fixed sooner
I have siblings we were about 2 years apart. When we were toddlers, my older sibling would look keep an eye on the younger ones while mom cooks.
Fast forward a few years we will be out running about. Slowly the boys and girls would separate, older stills looks out for the younger.
The TV station only start broadcasting in the evenings.
>Admins can see a new HealthInsight recommendation to view failed sign-in rates from IPs categorized as Tor Anonymizer Proxies. Okta recommends using Dynamic Zones to blacklist IPs that are categorized as Tor anonymizer proxies. See Blacklist proxies with high sign-in failure rates.
That's pretty normal for enterprise products. Palo Alto has a similar banlist. It goes with their desire to control *ALL THE THINGS.*
If your workplace bans tor, and you want to use it to connect to okta maybe don't use tor?
Hmm... I'll forego the obvious question of having restarted your system. Do you get the same malfunction when using a different source (cell phone, computer, laptop, etc.)?
Or switching browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Edge, etc.)?
Or using a different IP address (Anonymizer, TOR browser, etc.)?
Or you could use a good firewall and not worry about it at all. I have DNS filtering, along with URL filtering on my firewall and it works great. To get anywhere you have to get through both. DNS filtering is enhanced by additional imported blacklists and I block outbound DNS unless it comes from my internal DNS servers. Proxies, Anonymizer, porn and other problematic categories are blocked, along with any site that hasn’t been categorized yet. You can tighten it up further by turning on SSL decryption and blocking risky or troublesome applications traversing your firewall (such as outbound VPN traffic).
You can do all of these easily with any good layer 7 firewall.
Use kalitorify or Anonymizer for it
Don't scan servers/machines that u won't own or u don't have permission to scan them it can put u in trouble and this tools will not make u 100% anonymous u can't be fully anonymous on internet
Anonymizer helped me understand that apparantly there's not a small limit on how big your name could be
In March 2011, Ntrepid won a $2.76 million contract from the U.S. military for "online persona management." The contract was for the creation of technology which would allow for blogging activities on websites, to "counter violent extremist and enemy propaganda." It would allow for one operator to anonymously create and control up to ten personas from one computer.
In 2008, the Anonymizer company was acquired by the Abraxas Corporation, which was purchased by Cubic in 2010 for $124 million. Some of Abraxas' former employees left to form Ntrepid that same year.
The project is overseen by U.S. Central Command (Centcom).
The project is thought to be connected with Operation Earnest Voice.
And as a public service announcement: check your task manager for rouge tasks. I found a shitload of proxycheck running due to some malware and windows didn't care. Somehow a bullshit Anonymizer got installed.
I rarely play arty. But when i do, yeah if i have the luxury to choose, purple players are focused first.
Anonymizer might help, but then again might not. When u see anonimyzer i believe its one of the extremes; Either tomato or unicom. Average players dont bother go anonymus. There is so much gap between them a tomato and a cyan+ , that you can guess what category the hidden player fits

We also updated the graphics majorly and reworked a lot of maps.
I feel like that guy once complained in a battle about me. I always end up putting those people on my blacklist so they can fuck off after the battle :D
Anonymizer is great to counter people that believe you are a tomato because XVM.
>For me I can with certainty say that I am getting focused much much less, but getting insulted much more often...
Same with less focus as a blue/purple player. I occasionally get PMs in the garage about being a coward, cheater, neckbeard, basement dweller, and adult diaper wearer for using Anonymizer. I'm glad to see XVM-snipers seething at the loss of their ability to focus top players.
I'd like to think the toxicity has improved a little due to the addition to the Anonymizer. It helps throws off the XVM abusers that tend to harass low stat players along with other misdemeanors relating to statistics. That being said, toxic players will always exist in any game. Getting rid of them all is futile.
We run Umbrella at work for security. If the policy is setup properly, it categorizes the resolvers as 'Proxy/Anonymizer' and blocks the lookup from the browser, Firefox then falls back to local DNS resolvers at before. I just tested it this morning and that is the proper behavior.
i don't know what you mean by drops. but if its something outside of random battles then it's intentionally not working since Anonymizer only is for Random battles. also it only hides your username to other platers and not to your mates that are platooning with you (same for dynamic platoons)
When I submitted a bug to WG about the fact that annonymized players can send messages to you when they are on your blacklist, this was their response:
> At the moment it's the current work of Anonymizer. However, we continue to improve this feature in future Updates and it's not excluded that the changes to its work can be applied.
So, yes, players on your blacklist can send you messages, but that's just how it works now. So, not bug--but feature.
And yes, this was the NA server (English much?)
Anonymizer you could use to avoid crap from toxic players. But don't listen to them.
What helped for me is to look one game at the time. Really start to think consiously and not just go for auto pilot.
At every move think ¨Is this the right flank¨, ¨should I try to kill him or should I wait?¨.
Then once you have taken a decision look at the results.
¨was the flank really helpful you were there?¨, ¨did you got the kill when you went for it or did you get smashed down by TD's.¨.
> If they got rid of it, tomatoes would miss it most.
> They ought to limit it to users with 10K games.
So, in your opinion, the Anonymizer is only useful for people that want not to be stat-shamed?
I think it's the XVM team that's behind this drive. I see the same message come up here and there on a regular basis. I think it's fair that they disabled XVM for anyone running Anonymizer but I sense an element of bitterness from them.
Nevertheless, I use the Anonymizer and as a blue player I see A LOT less artillery focus. It was a much needed and much overdue feature.
WN8 camo lol
I don't think WN8 focusing is as much of an issue as people say. Anonymizer hasn't really changed much for me. Most of the times it is just focusing without XVM, most of my enemies don't even have XVM installed
>Depending on how long ago you stopped playing:
>No Team Damage

>I'm definitely missing a lot, but that's all the stuff I can remember right now.
exactly...I enjoy this game even more after I got rid of my main account. No T49 trying to yolo me or less arty focus... or a funny fact: me (400wn8) and my platoon mate (2800wn8) in two heavies... he got focused first, he died and i was on full health. now i just enjoy the game and if i fail... well then i fail. But nowadays there is at least the Anonymizer...
> Seems like fredy5 [you're] just drawing your own toxic conclusions
And then I stated: "you obviously don't know majortomm"
You made the assumption that there was not a long history between this player and the rest of the WoT community, particularly the Clan Wars community. Rather than asking about other encounters with this player, you jumped to calling my comment toxic. Not to mention that the Anonymizer is literally built to prevent focus, and it is a logical conclusion that people who vehemently oppose allowing other players to anonymize might actually like to focus other players (which is very logical).
I can feel the difference - haven't been a victim of unreasonable focus since Anonymizer, which happend before.
Also I'm noticing less ppl drowning at the begining (cuz team sucks or whatever).
Overall - great change for the better.
Lmao, they are using OpenDNS to block any VPN or Proxy. Blocked as a Proxy/Anonymizer. HideMyAss is blocked too.
Fuck this shit, choco install tor-browser here we that didn't work. I tried changing my DNS server also but that didn't fix it...
Downloaded TOR from Filehippo, used TOR to download CyberGhost. Just going to use it as a free VPN till I buy new internet.
