Is there any way to shield your IP address from a website when you visit it?

google search for "public proxy" and configure your browser to use one.

might want to add anonymous to that search

I have used them in the past, they do slow things up, and if you want to interact (post)  with any sites, they are fraught with problems.

I just do not understand people's fascination with those things.
Interesting when they first came out a [b]year[/b] ago. Now they are just kind of boring to look at.

When anyone asks this question I always assume they are a sicko looking for some illegal porn.

Damn Dave I looked at that , it may conceal your identity but it opens you up to hacking. Not a good thing.

Definitely something milsurp wants to know.

I just used it to see if it wwould work or not. I don't ever use a proxy myself, I have a hardware firewall to protect my network.

still no hacks/viri, knock on wood.....

In a nutshell, when you visit a site, it has to know the IP address where to send the data.  As has been mentioned, if you don't want your IP address known...then you'd use a proxy of some sort and then the web site will send the data to that computer.
