Shared or static IP?

Does Freedome assign its users their own individual IP address, or do multiple users share the same IP?  From what I've read, shared IPs are the way to go, as this increases anonymity.

 

If users share an IP, is there any way to tell how many users are sharing the same IP address?

Hi cilantro,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

Each virtual location has a set of their own IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. The user's external IP address will be one of the IP address from the set in the location. Yes, the IP'S are shared with multiple users, but there is no way of telling how many are sharing the IP at a given moment.
