Changing my IP address
How can I change my IP address? (I am talking about the IP assigned by Freedome, not the one assigned by my ISP).
The reason for changing my IP is to make it harder to be tracked. If this reason does not make sense I would be interested to know. Although Freedome provides an encrypted "tunnel" it still may (as I understand it from another post) keep my IP constant for a long time. https://community.f-secure.com/t5/F-Secure/Static-IP-Address/m-p/72231#M1771
When the user connects to a location, the product selects a gateway within the site randomly. Each gateway has its unique IP address. If the user disconnects the VPN session and reconnects, the user will likely end up to a different server, i.e. behind a different IP address. Moreover, all the concurrent users (typically hundreds, even thousand) on that particular server are hidden behind the server’s IP address. So, that IP address cannot be tied to a single user.5 Like
Thanks. What if , instead of disconnecting and reconnecting the VPN session, I change geographic locations? Will that guarantee a new IP? Is it possible for me to see the IP that has been assigned or to know somehow that it has changed? In all cases I am referring here to the IP seen by the web site I am visiting, not the IP seen by my ISP. I assume any ISP snooping is taken care of by the tunnel encryption.
